Video Hype: Toledo Fighter Martin Tucker

Martin Tucker is a 31-year-old junior welterweight from Toledo with a 7-8 (3 KO) record. That doesn't sound impressive, and to be 100% honest, it isn't. His record does have plenty of familiar names on it, including Sharif Bogere and Ivan Popoca. The reason I'm posting this is to showcase another side of boxing that frankly we don't talk much about. Most likely, Martin Tucker is not headed for the glitz of the MGM Grand or the bright lights of HBO pay-per-view. But he fights, and he wants his name out there.

On April 22, Martin Tucker faces Nick Casal (20-4-1, 15 KO) in Hamburg, New York. On that same card, lightweights Guillermo Sanchez (12-2-1, 5 KO) and Eddie Ramirez (6-6-1, 3 KO) face off. You can also see Lionell Thompson (5-0, 3 KO) v. Angel Hernandez (2-4, 2 KO); Amanda Serrano (8-0-1, 4 KO) v. Ela Nunez (9-8-1, 2 KO); Jordan Gaines (pro debut) v. John Dipolito (0-2, 0 KO); Bryan Abraham (3-5-2, 3 KO) v. Jamell Tyson (0-1-1, 0 KO); and Excell Holmes (1-0-1, 1 KO) v. Taffo Asongwed (0-6-6, 0 KO). Card subject to change of course.

We don't talk about this level, or this side of professional boxing too much. The fighters in the clubs. The fighters miles and miles away from a building with TV equipment. But they're out there, fighting. And they're an integral part of the sport.
