In an average week of fights its nice to have an inspiring poster like this one for Amnat Ruenroeng and Johnriel Casimero’s Wednesday clash in Beijing. I do believe future! And yes, that is a creepy looking Mike Tyson. Anyway, on with the schedule.
- Amnat Ruenroeng vs Johnriel Casimero, Wednesday, Beijing. We may as well start with this fight now we’ve made fun of its poster. Undefeated Thai and top flyweight Ruenroeng gives Filipino contender Casimero another go after winning a foul-filled fight at home in Bangkok last year. Casimero’s inactivity since then could count against him, and you figure Ruenroeng should be able to outbox him even without dirty tricks.
- David Avanesyan vs Shane Mosley, Saturday, CBS Sports Net, Glendale Ariz. Washed welterweight legend Mosley takes on a hairy Russian clubfighter.
- Jarrell Miller vs Nick Guivas, Friday, CBS Sports Net, Niagara Falls. Miller, a kickboxer turned fringe heavyweight prospect (Can you be a fringe prospect? You can now) is being showcased against Kansas fall guy Guivas
- Miguel Vazquez vs Erick Bone, Saturday, Fox Sports Net, San Antonio. Vazquez, a notorious spoiler, faces Ecuador’s Bone, who has lost two on the trot, as a comeback fight after dropping a decision to Argenis Mendez last October.
- Donnie Nietes vs Raul Garcia, Saturday, beIN Sports Español, Bacolod City Philippines. Longtime junior flyweight titlist Nietes fights southpaw veteran Garcia at home.
