CLEARWATER, FL, February 25, 2017 — A week out from his Welterweight Championship unification bout versus World Boxing Council champion Danny Garcia (33-0 19 knockouts) at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY, the lithe and muscular, 5’ 7 1/2” tall World Boxing Association kingpin Keith Thurman (27-0, 22 KO’s) packs a keen mind along with the muscle, athleticism and pop — a point he demonstrates when he recalls our interview at a shopping mall in his native Clearwater, Florida in 2012.

Real life “Rocky” moment at hand for Las Vegas’ Patrick Gutierrez

by on Feb.24, 2017, under Press Releases

Make or break fight for underdog vs. 2016 Olympic bronze medalist Nico Hernandez
March 25 on CBS Sports Network live from Kansas Star Arena
MULVANE, Kansas (February 23, 2017) – Flyweight Patrick Gutierrez is going into his nationally-televised, main event showdown, March 25 in Kansas with high expectations against pro-debuting 2016 Olympic junior flyweight bronze medalist Nico Hernandez.  Gutierrez is training hard in Las Vegas for his scheduled six-round “Knockout Night Boxing: History Begins” headline bout to derail hometown hero Hernandez’ coming out party

“This fight is make or break for me,” the 22-year-old Gutierrez said about his ‘Rocky’-like moment.  The crowd won’t bother me because I enjoy fighting in front of large crowds. I’ve learned the hard way that, fighting my opponent in his backyard, I can’t leave it in the hands of the judges. I watched Nico fight in the Olympics.  I have a lot of respect for him and was proud of him for winning the bronze medal for our country.  But, I also saw some flaws from the fight that he lost.  He’s in trouble if he hasn’t corrected those flaws.”

Weston was originally scheduled to fight Texas’ Juan Reyna, but after Reyna fell out West stepped in to fill the main event slot, making for what on paper appears to be a much more interesting fight.
