On another hot day in Dallas, WBC super welterweight champion Jermell “Iron Man” Charlo strolled into the R&R Boxing Club to lace up for 12 spirited rounds with IBF welterweight champion Errol Spence Jr., as both are trained by former fighter Derrick James. Charlo is three weeks out from fighting the powerful Erickson Lubin, considered one of boxing’s hot young prospects, on Saturday, October 14 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY and shown live on Showtime Boxing.

Charlo, out of Houston, had other ideas when he KO’d Dallas native Charles Hatley in a WBC mandatory back in April as he was looking at a potential showdown with Puerto Rican superstar Miguel Cotto. No longer the young gun at 27, Charlo is hitting his prime and was hoping with his first world title under his belt, he could seek bigger paydays with the likes of Cotto who has indicated he will retire after one more fight in December. The WBC had other ideas and instead required a second mandatory against the dangerous southpaw Lubin, who will have just turned 22 at fight time and possesses knockout power in both hands.

However today it was announced that Dmitry Bivol would face WBA #11 Trent Broadhurst for the vacant WBA title on November 4th.

“I should be fighting Bivol. He is ranked #1 and I am #2. What is the point of the rankings if they won’t follow their rules?” said Barrera. Continue reading “Barrera: I should be fighting Bivol”

Briggs targets Tyson Fury for comeback

Open Letter from Shannon Briggs to Tyson Fury

I was reading Frank Warren’s online column today and the veteran promoter struck a nerve with his stance on the unfair treatment former world champ and colorful character Tyson Fury is getting from UK boxing authorities. Now doing the Limbo can be an amusing dance but living in Limbo, a boxing purgatory is no fun at all. Being prevented from making a living is odious and that is why I now propose a match for those who may be clinically insane or slightly maladjusted.

You think McGregor and Mayweather hype was over the top? Imagine me and my “Gypsy Brother” Tyson going jaw to jaw. The only thing better than the prefight circus would be the in ring war we would engage in, two former world heavyweight champions who remain armed and dangerous.

Nico Hernandez overcomes larger opponent

2016 Olympic bronze medalist Nico Hernandez had to overcome a major obstacle to remain undefeated at Hartman Arena in Palm City, Kansas. Opponent Kendrick “Uprising” Latchman outweighed regular flyweight Hernandez by more than 10 pounds when the two fighters entered the ring because Hernandez’ scheduled opponent, Basyzbek Baratov (2-1-2), abruptly pulled out of the fight after the weigh-in due to a contractual disagreement.

Hernandez weighed in at 113 pounds, Baratov was 112, which was the contracted weight. The Kansas Athletic Commission, however, automatically allows one-pound over for all non-title fights. Baratov refused to fight but Latchman agreed to fight at a 125-pound catchweight. Hernandez gained four pounds and the fight was on. Continue reading “Nico Hernandez overcomes larger opponent”

By Matt Thompson at ringside

In the main event, Fresno’s Mike Ruiz (12-4-3 4 KOs) pounded out a close ten round unanimous decision over Modesto’s Jonathan Torres (8-6-1 2 KOs) in the bantamweight division. Scores read 95-94, 97-92, 97-92. The fight featured momentum swings and a wild finish over the last thirty seconds. Ruiz was deducted a point for a low blow in round five but it didn’t prove to be a difference maker.

Referee Dan Stell called a premature halt to what looked like anybody’s fight, much to the displeasure of Leon and the bewilderment of many at ringside in what was an excellent scrap.
