Number one WBO super middleweight contender Jesse Hart, 22-0, 18 KOs, finally gets his shot at a world title after a lifetime of preparation, enormous expectations, and two generations of familial waiting. Hart, the son of Philly middleweight legend, Cyclone Hart, faces WBO champion Gilberto Ramirez, 35-0, 24 KOs, Friday night, in Arizona at the Tucson Convention Center, live on ESPN.

Even before Hart’s father brought him to a boxing gym, with a mission to turn the boy into an Olympic and professional boxing champion, high hopes have always surrounded Jesse Hart. He was a celebrated amateur whose sure-fire streak toward a Gold Medal at the London Olympics in 2012, was aborted by a pair of bad decisions in two different divisions which ended his Olympic dream at the box-offs level.

Nuñez wins on points in Panama

By Héctor Villarreal

In a very competitive fight, Panamanian superfeather Ricardo “El Científico” Nuñez (18-2, 16 KOs), ranked 6th by WBA, had to go to the distance for only the second time in his career to conquer the WBC Latin American Championship by unanimous decision over Venezuelan Jesus “Shotgun” Cuadro (11-2, 7 KOs).

Cuadro dropped Nuñez on round 4 but referee Hector Afu didn´t rule it a knockdown. The local fighter stumbled again in the fifth round before sending Cuadro to the canvas for the first official knockdown of the fight scheduled for eight, which headed the “Homenaje al Maestro” card presented by Promociones y Eventos del Istmo at Fantastic Casino in Albrook, Panama City, to honor the late journalist Felix Piñango. All 3 judges, Jesus Aleman (77-74), Bolivar Arauz (78-73) and Fernando Murray (76-75) scored the fight in favor of Nuñez.

Undefeated WBC Heavyweight World Champion Deontay “The Bronze Bomber” Wilder and Cuban southpaw Luis “The Real King Kong” Ortiz spoke about their upcoming November 4th title clash.

“I’ve been waiting for this moment for a long time and I’m excited that the time has come to meet Luis Ortiz,” said Wilder. “Ortiz is considered the boogeyman of the sport and I am the hardest hitter in boxing.
