We are still awaiting something on the horizon in the UK – but not for long – however for now we are still in the waiting room. Whilst there we have had some decent events ongoing and last weekend on Saturday the 27th of June in Florida super lightweight Ryan Martin managed a win against Carlos Ninsten Velazquez who retired in the 6th, we sit as distant observers, envious and hopeful we can experience it live soon – won’t be long..
In Mexico City, super lightweight Omar Alejandro Aguilar got a 1st round stoppage win against Dante Jardon whilst lightweight Miguel Berchelt also got a stoppage – in the 6th – against Eleazar Valenzuela.
During the week, on Tuesday the 30th of June in Las Vegas Bob Arum came back with super lightweight Alex Saucedo managing a 10 round points win against Sonny Frederickson with Josue Vargas also managing a 10 round decision win against Salvador Briseno.
Then on Thursday the 2nd of July, back in Las Vegas, Arum returned again in his twice weekly programme with super lightweight Jose Pedraza finally getting to beat Mikkel LesPierre after LesPierre hit the canvass in rounds 5 and 10. The points win was expected but welcome nonetheless.
