This should be a good scrap here.
Surprised no one made Nova shave that beard.
Nova’s an odd fighter. Seems almost reluctant to use that right hand.
Good thing because that’s the most exciting part of this fight.
Dude didn’t want to throw, even though he’s a good puncher. Strange.
There's a longer one on YouTube where Ali asked D'Amato what he would do if he were fighting Ali. I think Ali also called D'Amato before the Foreman fight and asked him what he thought about the fight
SC how is tonight’s card? Worth a watch?
It’s just a decent card. Berchelt in the main is fun as hell but he’s in against a nobody. Decent co-main as well. I’m gonna watch for however long I can stay up for.
ESPN, 11:00 pm ET, Miguel Berchelt vs Eleazar Valenzuela, Omar Aguilar vs Dante Jardon.
Another Zanfer card from TV Azteca studios in Mexico City, another main event mismatch between a world champion and a club fighter. Berchelt is one of the best fighters in the sport, the top guy at 130, and this is just a 135-pound stay-busy for him. Plans are in motion for him to face Oscar Valdez later this year. Aguilar-Jardon is a better matchup, a 21-year-old prospect against a 32-year-old veteran who never quite broke through and was found out a couple divisions ago as far as potentially being a top fighter. But a step up for Aguilar on paper.
The most interesting fight on the card is junior welterweight prospect Omar Aguilar putting his undefeated record on the line against Dante “Crazy” Jardon, a battle-tested veteran at age 32 who is really a natural 130-pounder and unsuccessfully challenged for a world title in that division back in 2013.
June 30: Las Vegas (ESPN)
Alex Saucedo vs. Sonny Fredrickson, 10 rounds, junior welterweight
Salvador Briceno vs. Josue Vargas, 10 rounds, junior welterweight
Larry Fryers vs. John Bauza, 8 rounds, junior welterweight
Donte Stubbs vs. Isiah Jones, 6 rounds, middleweight
I love it, this Isiah Jones didnt leave the bubble and is fighting again
When I hear them announce Adelaide Byrd, I cringe
How is she still a judge?
do people not want the job? I feel like someone with no boxing knowledge or background could watch a fight and figure out who won better than her
Ever since that bullshit Canelo/GGG I, I dont know how she wasnt fired or arrested
Okay maybe this is common knowledge to SC & Daniel Ocean but my head is blown now. Had no idea Robert Byrd & Adalaide Byrd were married. Should have guessed but 0 idea.
I think I knew this at one point and then totally forgot. Makes sense since they are both bad at their jobs now.
Good little scrap here in the main.
Per Bob Arum, Vasyl Lomachenko-Teofimo Lopez is tentatively on for September 16th. Big, big fight!
PPV with no one in the stands will be interesting.
Yeah, I dunno how they’re going to pull that off. Maybe you could do it at an outdoor venue (Stubhub Center?) and have some sort of crowd there? I don’t know.
Why cant they move it up 2 weeks?! I plan on being in Vegas then.
July 2: Las Vegas
Jose Pedraza vs. Mikkel LesPierre, 10 rounds, junior welterweights
Albert Bell vs. Mark Bernaldez, 10 rounds, junior lightweights
Daniel Murray vs. Elvis Rodriguez, 6 rounds, junior welterweights
Patrick Mailata vs. Kingsley Ibeh, 6 rounds, heavyweights
Robeisy Ramirez vs. Adan Gonzales, 6 rounds, featherweights
This is a damn good card.
Thursday, July 2
ESPN, 8:00 pm ET, Jose Pedraza vs Mikkel LesPierre, Adan Gonzales vs Robeisy Ramirez II.
Pedraza-LesPierre is rescheduled from a couple weeks ago, after LesPierre’s manager tested positive for COVID-19. But things are good to go now (for now). More interesting, really, is Ramirez going for revenge against Gonzales, the battler who upset the two-time Olympic gold medalist in Ramirez’s pro debut last year.
Pedraza, 31, is a former titleholder at 130 and 135 looking to chase another belt at 140. His run at the new weight got off to a bad start last September, dropping a decision to Jose Zepeda, but he’s determined to make this work. LesPierre has one notable fight in his career, a title challenge against Maurice Hooker last year that ended in a shutout loss. Tonight’s fight is a catchweight bout technically at welterweight.
The co-feature is a lightweight bout between unbeaten Albert Bell, really a 130 prospect but it’s another catchweight, and Mark Bernaldez, and we also have a notable rematch between two-time Olympic gold medalist Robeisy Ramirez and the man who beat him in his pro debut last year, Adan Gonzales, plus a one-week turnaround from heavyweight project Kingsley Ibeh and junior welterweight prospect Elvis Rodriguez also in action.
Robeisy gets his revenge, 60-54 x3. Honestly, expected a little more from him there.
That was the least shocking result of the night
Don’t sleep on a hot dog with guacamole and bacon on a tortilla. Team Bradley on this one.
That’s a clear knockdown.
I don’t know what the rule is. It was a good punch but his leg being behind the other sure helped him fall over
Yeah, he definitely tripped, but the punch landing like it did would be enough for me to call it a knockdown pretty easily.
By all means, make the fight, but The Monster is levels above Issac Dogboe.
That to me would be my fight of the year.
Him vs Charlo is a damn good fight.
Some balls here from King Ry. Campbell is a tough cookie and a big step up.
they said the winner gets Devin Haney if I remember correctly
Here's what we've got tonight.
ESPN, 8:00 pm ET, Jose Zepeda vs Kendo Castaneda, Andy Vences vs Luis Alberto Lopez.
Zepeda, a top 10 guy at 140, was supposed to fight Ivan Baranchyk on this night, but Baranchyk has a reportedly minor injury; there was initially hope that it would be rescheduled for later in July, but instead Zepeda is keeping this date and facing Kendo Castaneda, a Texas fighter who has headlined some Roy Jones-promoted shows on UFC Fight Pass. He lost on Telemundo to Yomar Alamo earlier this year. He’s not a bad fighter or anything, but will rightly be a big underdog. As a short notice opponent, he’s a decent get.
Zepeda, 31, is a southpaw who lost a very competitive title fight with Jose Ramirez in Feb. 2019, and returned last September to score a strong win over Jose Pedraza.
Jose Zepeda (31-2, 25 KO) vs Kendo Castaneda (17-1, 8 KO), catchweight (144), 10 rounds
Andy Vences (23-1-1, 12 KO) vs Luis Alberto Lopez (20-2, 11 KO), junior lightweights, 10 rounds
Andres Cortes (12-0, 7 KO) vs Alejandro Salinas (10-3, 9 KO), lightweights, 8 rounds
Genaro Gamez (9-1, 6 KO) vs Reymond Yanong (11-5-1, 9 KO), welterweights, 8 rounds
Eric Puente (2-0, 0 KO) vs Diego Elizondo (2-1-2, 0 KO), lightweights, 4 rounds
Gabriel Muratalla (3-0, 3 KO) vs Sergio Lopez (4-5-3, 0 KO), bantamweights, 4 rounds
worth the watch?
Meh. On paper, it's not a particularly compelling card. Zepeda is fun in the main event at least.
Fun fight to start. Muratalla is entertaining. Boxing is his side gig, he's a preschool teacher during the day.
I wouldnt mind seeing him progress and get some bigger fights.
He's got some real skills. Definitely want to see him back again soon.
Always fucking scary when there is an accidental headbutt and I got big money on the Over 8.5 Rounds
