Southern California Fight Scene

By Francisco Salazar

Making the transition from unbeaten prospect to unbeaten contender is harder than it seems. There are those fighters that could get caught up in headlining cards, the bigger purses, or the exposure of being unbeaten. Some of those fighters do not know how to handle it and go from being considered a contender to becoming a pretender. Without those realizing it, Ronny Rios was considered a prospect (maybe he still is to some people), but is knocking on the door of becoming a contender. So far, he is pushing the door open and could swing it wide open with a victory tomorrow night. Rios will take on David Rodela in a scheduled 10 super featherweight bout at the Fantasy Springs Resort Casino in Indio, CA. That bout, along with the 10 round welterweight clash between Julio Diaz and Henry Araud, will be televised on Telefutura. Golden Boy Promotions will promote the card. (more…)

By Brett Bonetti

Three Time World Champion Danny “The Green Machine” Green (32-5, 28 KOs) says he is unsure what the future holds following his impressive victory over Danny “The Bronx Bomber” Santiago (31-6-1, 27 KOs) at the sold out Challenge Stadium in Perth, Australia on Wednesday night. The Green Machine sent Santiago to the canvas four times on his way to a 5th round TKO in what was the West Australian’s final fight in his home town of Perth and now plans to just enjoy life before making any decisions. Following a big night of celebrations with no sleep, Green was asked again about his future in the Sport.

“Who knows, I’m not going to make any decisions right now. There have been some offers and Beibut Shumenov, the WBA world light heavyweight champion took 9 rounds to defeat Santiago and never dropped him once and we got a pretty good gauge where I am at on Wednesday night.” (more…)

Farah Ennis gets national TV slot

Germantown super middleweight Farah Ennis is familiar to Philadelphia boxing fans who have watched him develop over the past six years in local Philly rings like the Blue Horizon, National Guard Armory, and the South Philly Arena, as well as various Atlantic City casino ballrooms. His mix of boxing skill, size and power have made him a respected prospect. However his extreme calm in the ring and quiet nature outside it, have perhaps kept him from becoming a household name among fight fans in the City of Brotherly Love.

His serene and steady approach, in place of brash talk and showy antics, has earned him a nickname of “The Quiet Storm”. That name fits well. (more…)
