WealthTV boxing commentator Corey Erdman reports that Dierry Jean, John O'Donnell, and Andrew Gardiner will all see action on the 1st WealthTV installment of 2013. Both O'Donnell and Gardiner are scheduled to fight in December, 2012 as well. So obviously they have to manage to come away from those fights without serious injury. Although no opponents have officially been announced yet, Jean may possibly face WBC Silver light welterweight champion Roberto Ortiz, Ajose Olusegun, or Prawet Singwancha. Since the first two fights actually interest me I'll favor the third to actually happen.
