Kudos to Muhammad Ali for his attempt to free two American hikers who are being imprisoned in Iran 다운로드. We can hope other Muslim leaders step forward to speak out for the freedom of these two young men.***

 

Sometimes it’s easier to pick out the most exciting of the weekends action than the fight itself 다운로드. This weekend should give us that,

 

The bout, on Saturday, in Mexicali, Mexico between Giovani Segura and Ivan “Iron Boy” Calderon for the WBA/WBO Jr 다운로드. Flyweight crown is one of those fights.

 

Segura, 28, sports a record if 26-1 with 22 stoppages.

 

Calderon, a 36 year old southpaw, 34-1 (6), also has one blemish on his record, his last bout, a loss to Segura via an 8th round knockout 언프렌디드 다운로드.

 

Besides the youth, Segura has a 4 inch height advantage as well as a six inch reach edge.

 

On paper it looks like another win for the harder punching Segura, but in the ring is where it counts 핀터레스트 다운로드.

 

Okay, I’m a sucker for the obvious….Segura to score a TKO midway.

 

Glove 2 Glove:

Prayers for his soul would be much appreciated.

 

Prayers for the continuing recovery of outstanding referee Jay Nady, who is recovering from heart surgery 원더우먼 다운로드. Jay’s a fighter (he really was in college) and should be just fine.

 

Prayers for the recovery of the mother of Jacquie Richardson (Retired Boxers Assn.) and her father who had a hip replacement 해외 원서 다운로드.

 

Prayers are requested for the health of outstanding trainer Joe Sousa, who is fighting the fight of his life against cancer.
