Greer vs Plania set as fighters make weight in Las Vegas

Everyone is good to go for tomorrow’s ESPN card.


Tuesday night’s Top Rank Boxing on ESPN card is set, as all fighters made weight today in Las Vegas.

Tomorrow night’s card starts at 8 pm ET, and Bad Left Hook will be here for live coverage.

In the main event, bantamweight Joshua Greer Jr (22-1-1, 12 KO) will face Mike Plania (23-1, 12 KO) in a 10-round bout. The fight has a catchweight of 120 pounds, with Greer weighing in at 120 and Plania at 119½.

The co-feature bout, which will actually open the show, pits untested 28-year-oid Giovanni Santillan (25-0, 15 KO) against former lightweight titlist Antonio DeMarco (33-8-1, 24 KO) in a 10-round welterweight bout. Like many non-title fights, there’s a bit of leeway on the weight, so Santillan weighed in at 148, which is fine, while DeMarco was at the normal welterweight limit of 147.

28-year-old Kazakh welterweight Bobirzhan Mominov (10-0, 8 KO) weighed in at 152 pounds, while battle-tested gatekeeper Cameron Krael (17-15-3, 4 KO) weighed in at 147¼ for an eight-round bout. Krael is a better fighter than his record would lead you to believe; at 26, he’s become a frequent tester of prospects — over the years he’s faced Maurice Hooker, Jamal James, Levan Ghvamichava, Egidijus Kavaliauskas, and Keith Hunter, among others — and is usually quite competitive even when he loses.

We’ll have some big boys in action, too, with heavyweights Hector Perez (6-2, 3 KO) and Juan Torres (5-2-1, 2 KO) meeting in a six-round fight. Perez weighed in at 221, with Torres at 250.

26-year-old middleweight Nikoloz Sekhniashvili (5-0, 4 KO), originally from Georgia (the country), will be in six-round action against Isiah Jones (8-1, 3 KO). Sekhniashvili weighed in at 159¼, with Jones at 158¼.
