CARSON, CA, April, 26, 2014 — Keith Thurman lived up to his nickname of “One Time” with a blistering 3 round performance that left Julio Diaz unable to continue due to a Rib injury after 3 rounds of rapid give and take boxing. The crowd at the Stubhub center in Carson California were disappointed in the brevity of the main event but there was solace in the fact that the co-main event was arguably the Fight of the year to date and will be difficult to top for the rest.

The first round begins with Keith Thurman (22 – 0, 20 Kos) coming out and initiating a glove touch with Julio Diaz (40 -9, 29 Kos) which seems slightly peculiar as Thurman had made bold comments about knocking Julio’s head off in the lead up to the fight.  Thurman jabs three times then misses with a hook off the jab throwing it just a little too wide. Julio Diaz misses a right hand lead and gets caught with a hard hook from Thurman that rocks him back against the ropes, another hook lands from Thurman making Diaz legs do a little dance uncontrollably coming off the floor.  Near rounds end Thurman feints Diaz out of position then backpedals with Diaz in pursuit landing a series of hooks to Diaz body in the process.

Jayson Velez Injures Ankle Prior to Showdown Against Daniel Ponce de Leon, Richard Abril vs. Sharif Bogere Elevated to Main Event

by on Feb.16, 2013, under Boxing News, Press Releases

SATURDAY, MARCH 2 EVENT WILL NOW TAKE PLACE AT HARD ROCK HOTEL & CASINO IN LAS VEGAS AND BE TELEVISED LIVE ON SHOWTIME®

LAS VEGAS, NV, February 15 — The vacant WBA Lightweight World Championship between Richard Abril and Sharif “The Lion” Bogere has been elevated to the main event on Saturday, March 2 and will now be held at The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas live on SHOWTIME at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT (delayed on the West Coast).  The previously scheduled main event between WBC Featherweight World ChampionDaniel Ponce De Leon and Jayson Velez has been removed from the fight card due to a right ankle fractured suffered this week by Velez. The venue change from Harlem’s Apollo Theater in New York City comes as a result of the loss of the De Leon vs. Velez fight, and the presence of the Mexico vs. Puerto Rico rivalry attached to it, making it less prudent to promote the event in Harlem in close proximity to large Mexican and Puerto Rican communities.

 

Opening the telecast will be unbeaten featherweight phenom Gary Russell Jr. against Russia’s Vyacheslav Gusev in a 10-round featherweight bout.   (continue reading…)
