You have a kid who has a lot of hype and goes undefeated, he loses one fight, one CLOSE fight, and you act like you’re automatically gonna write him off, off one fight? (more…)

An attractive welterweight bout has been added to the “Star Power” card at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas on September 17th. Golden Boy Promotions matchmaker Eric Gomez told Fightnews.com on Tuesday afternoon that contender Said Ouali (28-3 1 ND, 20 KO’s) will take on crafty veteran Carson Jones in a 10 round bout. Jones (31-8-2, 21 KO’s), who has won his last five bouts in a row by knockout, is currently in Big Bear, CA, where he is being used as a sparring partner for Saul Alvarez. He was victorious in his last bout in July, stopping former fringe contender Germaine Sanders in the sixth round.
Ouali, who fights under the Mayweather Promotions banner, stopped Dumont Welliver in his last bout in May. It was his first bout since the controversial second round no contest in December against Randall Bailey. In that bout, Ouali was injured after he fell over the top rope and onto a table after losing his balance when Bailey inadvertently lifted him onto the top rope following a clench. The Ouali-Jones bout will top the non-televised portion of the card.
