Doing a big catch-up since I didn't do one for Friday, Saturday, or Sunday..
Also, will be a little slow on Saturday since there are two cards on Friday night, and then an early card on Saturday. Might even miss Saturday's update.
New posts at the bottom, as usual.
Farenas vs Barthelemy would make an interesting style clash.
Oh wait but no he has to fight someone else first. Who?
Well, I didn't even know Van Heerden was on the card. Guess it doesn't matter now. I would've liked to have gotten a look at him.
Berto comeback TBA for September.
Richar Abril is going to defend his title in September? First defense in 19 months. And he wasn't stripped of his belt.. why? Tatli is a bottom-end fringe guy at 135lbs.
Molina vs Bundrage pushed back like a month.
Anthony Joshua vs... who? I would've rather seen Sexton, or Sprott. Maybe Price eventually. Oh wait, he's fighting Sprott in October. Cool!
I have no idea who this guy is that Matthyse is fighting.
They must not like Mickey Bey very much.
KIRKLAND IN NOVEMBER? YES PLEASE.
Hassan N'Dam vs Curtis Stevens to be on 09/30. I think this was already rumored to be a fight coming down the pipe.
Brian Vera and Gabe Rosado fighting! In some.. weird... quasi-boxing thing.
ESPN FNF continues to be garbage through August, with Willie Nelson taking a soft comeback, and some other guys I've never heard of.
Speaking of garbage, Murray's new South African promoters seem content to just get him fighting 4 times a year. I guess he's aiming for the WBC title at this point... since it seems highly likely that Cotto will vacate in the next year.
Tomoki Kameda signed with Al Haymon.
Andy Ruiz pulled out of his August fight with Nagy Aguilera.
David Price hurt his hand on his last punching bag opponent, so he's probably out of action until 2015.
Caleb Truax and some other guy sign with Al Haymon.
Mares wants another soft touch before rematching Gonzalez. Dude, just admit you don't want to fight Gonzalez. You came up with two fake injuries. You're just bullshittin.
Anselmo Moreno is becoming one of those "lame duck" champions like Chris John.
Joseph Parker might not be able to make it to the USA, which nixes one of three fights on a terrible NBC Sports card ...
Juanma isn't retiring. Shame.
The British Boxing Board of Control sure likes throwing it's weight around don't they.
