September 9 ShoBox Update: Mauricio Herrera vs Hector Sanchez Headlines, Kayode in Co-Feature

Shobox_banner_medium

In a change to a previous report, the September 9 edition of ShoBox: The New Generation is now set for the Grand Casino in Hinckley, Minn., and only Lateef Kayode remains involved.

Ryan Maquiñana reports at BoxingScene.com that the main event will be a junior welterweight fight between Mauricio Herrera (18-1, 7 KO) and Hector Sanchez (19-1, 9 KO). The co-feature will have cruiserweights Lateef Kayode (17-0, 14 KO) and Felix Cora Jr (22-5-2, 12 KO) in action.

Herrera, 31, has upped his name considerably this year with a pair of wins on ESPN Friday Night Fights. He kicked off the season on January 7 with an upset of Ruslan Provodnikov, then returned on June 24 to beat Mike Dallas Jr in California. Between those fights, he also defeated veteran battler Cristian Favela. Herrera was due to rematch Provodnikov on August 19 to close out the Friday Night Fights season as it started, but Provodnikov pulled out with a shoulder injury.

Sanchez, 24, hasn't fought in a year, and needs the win badly to move forward. In December 2008 and April 2009, Sanchez defeated veterans Wilson Alcorro and DeMarcus Corley, but then followed those wins with an April 2010 loss to Cleotis Pendarvis, a club fighter who is better than his record and has tested plenty of fighters, including Herrera.

Kayode, 28, is a possible contender in the near future, trained by Freddie Roach and with a push that most cruiserweights wouldn't get in the States. He's been consistently featured on TV. This is a sideways step at best for him, as the 31-year-old Cora has lost two straight and is established as a middle of the road fighter.
