Blue Chip Prospects In Action

Although the Victor Ortiz-John Molina bout was cancelled, which on paper, would have been a hell of a fight, the card from Ontario, CA is stacked with up and coming prospects.

Bite Down Boxing’s #6 prospect Under 21 will be action.  Brandon Figueroa (16-0, 11 KO’s) will now headline the event as he faces off with former World Champion, Oscar Escandon.  ‘The Heartbreaker’ Figueroa looks the part, good looking, skillful and willing to face stiff competition as prepares for a run a World title in the near future.  The Weslaco native is currently ranked 71st in the world and 10th in the United States.

2016 Silver Medalist Joe Joyce (5-0, 5 KO’s) will see action in a 8 round heavyweight bout.  The promising Joyce will face his toughest opponent to date, 30 plus fight veteran, Iago Kiladza.  The 6’6 Joyce will be fighting for the 5th time in 2018.

Feared Heavyweight Prospect Efe Ajagba (6-0, 5 KO’s) returns to actions after a bizarre situation in his last fight.  Ajagba was scheduled to face Curtis Harper but Harper had different plans.  After the referee delivered his instructions and the bell rang for the 1st round, Harper exited the ring to everybody’s surprise.  Hopefully Ajagba’s opponent, Nick Jones (7-0, 5 KO’s) doesn’t second thoughts come fight night.

Former US Junior amateur champion Joey Spencer will be featured in a 4 round Jr. Middleweight bout.  Spencer (4-0, 4 KO’s) is an exciting mixture of both power and speed and his quickly becoming a name to keep an eye on.  Spencer will face Cory Macon (1-2)
