A solid boxing card at the Hard Rock in Vegas this weekend promoted by Top Rank. A look at the card tells you that there is going to be some exciting action.
Veteran Juan Manuel Marquez will take on Floyd Mayweather jr. on Sept. 19th in Vegas. That should be a help, and a very interesting fight to watch. It could be a very tough fight for the come backing ex-champ.
The major fight this week is from Biloxi, Mississippi, where you have two hookers, (not that kind) meeting each other in an intriguing match-up.
Roy Jones Jr. who has lost half of his last eight bouts takes on Jeff Lacy in an important match-up for both.
Jones 40, is 53-5 with 39 knockouts. Lacy, eight years younger is 25-2, with 17 KO’s.
Height and weight wise, there is little to separate these two warriors.
Lacy still hasn’t looked the same since his loss to Jermain Taylor.
Jones, who has nothing to prove, has lost to Joe Calzaghe, Antonio Tarver (twice) and Glen Johnson in his last eight fights.
Tough fight to call, but I’ll give the edge to Jones because of his experience. The fight should go to a decision.***
Glove 2 Glove:
Prayers for the soul of Tracy Callis jr. and the other fine boxing folks who have left a void in our sport and our lives the past few months. It would take too long to list all the other fine boxing people who left us since my last article, so a prayer for all of them would be in order. May the good Lord have mercy on their souls.
Prayers for the return to health are asked for boxing guy and friend Ed Milberger or Oregon, who, fairly quietly, has done much to improve the image of our sport.
One of boxing’s good guys, Genaro ‘Chicanito’ Hernandez has been diagnosed with a rare form of cancer. The good news from his corner (and mine) is that his cancer is in remission.
On behalf of these great fighters who have given their all in our great sport, we thank you for your ongoing prayers.
