Hot prospects on St. Louis undercard

Before the HBO cameras roll for Saturday’s doubleheader featuring hometown hero Devon Alexander “The Great” against Marcos “El Chino” Maidana and the WBO jr lightweight world championship fight between Adrien “The Problem” Broner and Eloy “Prince” Perez, a number of hot prospects will head up an eight-fight undercard that should keep fans at St. Louis’ Scottrade Center entertained all night long.

Heading up the non-televised portion of the Feb. 25 event is a 10-round junior welterweight battle between Sharif Bogere (21-0, 13 KOs) and Sergio Rivera (25-8-2, 16 KOs). 6’7 2008 Olympic super heavyweight bronze medalist Deontay “The Bronze Bomber” Wilder (20-0, 20 KOs) faces Marlon Hayes (23-10, 12 KOs) in an eight round fight. Unbeaten jr middleweight Eddie Gomez (7-0, 6 KOs) faces Jose Ortiz (4-6-1, 1 KO) in a six round bout. Jr middleweight Keith “One Time” Thurman (15-0, 14 KOs) returns to the ring in an eight round battle against Chris Fernandez (19-14-1, 12 KOs). And former amateur star Christopher “Sweet” Pearson (2-0, 1 KO) faces Jeremy Wood (1-4, 1 KO)in a four round middleweight fight.
