I lead Ramon Malpica in the challenge 119-98.
Premier Boxing Champions offers a horrid mismatch as its main event with WBC welterweight champion Danny Garcia in a non-title match against journeyman Samuel Vargas,but has two interesting fights underneath it.
Jarrett Hurd impressed me a lot in his last two wins against good opposition and he'll take on former welterweight title challenger Jo Jo Dan and the best fight of the night could be first with former junior lightweight champ Javier Fortuna moving up to lightweight to fight undefeated Omar Douglas.
The moral to this card-If you have to miss some of the show-miss the last part not the first..
Monte Carlo did have four interesting fights,but the flu knocked Dmitri Chudinov out of an interesting super middleweight bout vs Martin Murray.
HBO is showing our top rated heavyweight Luis Ortiz against Malik Scott and two WBA 'Secondary'
titles (We only recognize their "super" champion) are on the line as well.
Bantamweight Jamie McDonnell takes on Libojo Solis in a bout that should he win,could see McDonnell promoted to full champion as champion Rau'Shee Warren was ordered to face McDonnell,but as of yet has done agreed to that match,
McDonnell doesn't want to have a long layoff,so he took this fight to stay busy.
Jason Sosa upset Javier Fortuna in his last bout to win the WBA minor belt and defends against one of the many Smith brothers from England-Stephen.
Sosa was far behind on the cards vs Fortuna before a stunning 11th round knockout.
The winner of this bout will face the true WBA champion next in the winner of the New Years Eve rematch in Tokyo between Jezreel Corrales and Takashi Uchiyama..
