Golden Child Returns!

On Friday, June 26th, fight fans at the Desert Diamond Casino in Tucson, Arizona will get a first-hand look at some of the brightest young stars in the boxing when undefeated middleweight Daniel “The Golden Child” Jacobs, rising junior middleweight star Erislandy Lara and 2008 United States Olympic Bronze Medalist Deontay Wilder step into the ring in separate featured bouts on ESPN’s “Friday Night Fights”. In the main event, knockout specialist Jacobs (16-0, 14 KOs) makes his fourth appearance of 2009 when he battles George Walton (20-3, 12 KOs) in a middleweight bout scheduled for 10 rounds. Opponents for Lara (6-0, 4 KOs) and Wilder (5-0, 5 KOs) along with a full slate of undercard bouts will be announced shortly. Tickets, priced at $25 to $120 in advance, are on sale now and are available by calling 1-800-745-3000 or by visiting the Desert Diamond Casino Box Office.

    For 18 years,® has delivered daily boxing news to fight fans around the globe. From the beginning, we have always kept Fightnews free to our readers and relied on advertiser support. Anyway, the Miami Herald, The Guardian, and Wikipedia among others have been using the “crowdfunding” revenue model, so we thought we’d test it too.

    Please consider helping out. You’re not obligated to, but even a $1 pledge would really help. And if we reach our goal, we plan to upgrade our server and maybe even nuke the ads altogether. Wouldn’t that be nice?
