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.
