Samir looks to resume KO streak

Middleweight knockout artist Bastie Samir (7-0, 7 KOs) has yet to let a professional opponent see the third round and the 2008 Olympian will continue his pro career in undercard action Friday night at Fantasy Springs Resort Casino in Indio, California. Samir takes on Philadelphia’s Greg Hackett (2-4) on January 14 in a six round bout. The event will be headlined by the ten round junior middleweight main event between unbeaten rising star Erislandy Lara (14-0, 9 KO’s) and Arkansas’ Delray Raines (18-8-1, 13 KOs) and will also feature a six round junior welterweight contest pitting East LA phenom Frankie Gomez (7-0, 6 KOs) against the Bahamas’ Hensley Strachan (5-8-1, 1 KO), as well as Coachella’s own, rising junior featherweight prospect Randy Caballero (6-0, 4 KO’s) who risks his perfect record in a six round fight against an opponent to be announced. Golden Boy Promotions president Oscar de la Hoya will be on hand taking in all the action from ringside.
