George calls outs Findley, and Findley accepts

By Sam Geraci

Perennial contender Donovan “Da Bomb” George (24-4-2, 21 KOs) has called out middleweight and super middleweight gatekeeper Derrick “Superman” Findley (21-11-1, 14 KOs) after Findley’s September 14 destruction of George’s friend and stablemate, Mike “Hollywood” Jimenez, and Findley has accepted.

“I will be able to fight in the beginning of next year, and I want to avenge my friend’s loss to Derrick. Let’s do it!” said George on Sunday.

When asked about George’s statement, Findley responded with the type of confidence and cool that he exhibited in his win against Jimenez at the Horseshoe Casino in Hammond, IN, on September 14.

“If the money is right, I’ll fight. He can be my next victim; I really don’t have any problems with that,” said Findley.

Although George has a better record and enjoyed much more fan support, both fighters are similar in that they have strong connections to the Chicago boxing scene, have been willing to take on the best in their divisions and are at a crossroads in their careers with both trying to prove that they are still TV fighters. As a result, even if it does not make it to the networks, a matchup between the two, especially following Findley’s victory over Jimenez, who is trained by George’s father, would definitely be one that Chicago fight fans would come out to support.
