The week ahead looks interesting and once again we are mainly, though not exclusively, looking westward towards the United States for any type of action. Embracing their ability to shrug off their obvious crisis it looks like their fearlessness is about to be sport’s bonus.
But before we get to the USA, in Moscow, on Monday the 15th June we have a WBA continental super lightweight title fight between Khariton Agrba and Manuk Dilanyan. What makes it slightly odd is that Agrba has only fought two professional contests and unless he is a hidden Loma, perhaps he is there to make up the numbers…
On Tuesday the 16th June we do head to the USA and Nevada for another set of fights in Las Vegas as the MGM Grand plays host to super bantamweight Joshua Greer Jr with a 22-1-1 record taking on Mike Plania with a 23-1 record. The other fight is at welterweight and Giovani Santillan, unbeaten in 25 contests shall face 43 fight veteran, Antonio DeMarco. On paper these look like the types of fights we should really be having to get us back on track – the reality will be what we all are desperate to see…
On Thursday the 18th June we are back in Las Vegas with another bill – just like last week – where super lightweight and former WBO, IBF and IBO world champion Jose Pedraza takes on Mikkel LesPierre. This is another very decent looking fight on paper…
