WBC middle champ Adames opponent named

Newly elevated WBC middleweight champion Carlos Adames will defend his title against Terrell Gausha on June 15 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. Gausha, 36, (24-3, 12 KOs), a 2012 U.S. Olympian, won his most recent fights against Brandyn Lynch and KeAndrae Leatherwood, after losing a 12-round unanimous decision to Tim Tszyu in March 2022.

Adames-Gausha will be on the PBC undercard of the previously announced twinbill featuring “Tank” Davis against Frank “The Ghost” Martin and David Benavídez versus Oleksandr Gvozdyk.

  • This just a payday for Gausha and a walk in the park for Adames due to Gausha moving up in weight at the tale end of his career. Gausha always come to fight though!

  • How does Gausha get a shot when he’s not ranked in the top 15 of ANY of the middleweight organisations.
    And he’s about 6 th in the junior middleweight in the WBO .
    Can’t get my head around that one

    • The “champ” gotta get one defence in before losing it again to say a Terrence Crawford or a Spence !!
      Totally agree with you!

  • I actually think this can be a good fight! Gausha has skills, and has given a good account of himself so far. Earned good experience from it. If he’s in shape and focused, he will do well.

    But if he isn’t focused, well we know how this one ends.

  • Adames will win by TKO8 because he applies way too much pressure behind sharp punches and good hand speed.

  • PBC always did deliver the worst cards. Look how long they protected Wilder, the Charlos, Spence etc from real opponents and now Tank, a talented fighter been on the scene for years and no unifications.

  • I actually think Gausha gives Adames quite a few problems, HOWEVER, in no way does he deserve a title shot in any class, much less at 160 where he’s never fought world class…. but middleweight is really bad these days.
