If you guessed from the headline that there’s not much boxing on this week, you would be correct. The bleakness of the schedule is reflected by this post – such a dead week doesn’t warrant an amusing link. If you’re a diehard fan, this is one of those weeks in which you should take the opportunity to remove yourself from the couch and have a shower or hang out with your family.
There’s only one fighter in the top 10 of any division fighting this week, according to the Transnational Boxing Rankings Board. That man is #4 bantamweight Hugo Ruiz (31-2, 28 KO), who faces the tough but limited Giovanni Caro (24-12-4, 19 KO) in Mexico City on Saturday. As for televised fights, there are a pair on Friday; junior lightweight Teon Kennedy (17-2-2, 7 KO) trying to get back into the win column against journeyman Carlos Vinan (10-9-5, 2 KO) on gofightlive.tv and Puerto Rican featherweight prospect Braulio Santos (10-0, 9 KO) against Derrick Wilson (9-4-2, 3 KO) on Fox Deportes. That’s really about it – if you can find a hidden gem amongst the various other small cards, be sure to let us know.
