Heavyweight action returns in a pretty interesting way this weekend with a number of unbeaten Heavyweights in action.
In Canada fans will get the chance to see the promising and heavy handed Oscar Rivas (13-0, 8). Rivas, a Colombian based in Canada, has explosive power that has faltered in some whats in his career with injuries and other issues. We're hoping Rivas is full recuperated from his out of the ring issues and managed to make light work of Mexican Daniel Cota (17-4-1, 10) and get his career back in track with out any more issues.
Rivas isn't the only unbeaten prospect in action in North America and in the US we several more unbeaten and interesting hopefuls in action.
The most notable of those Heavyweight hopefuls is Gerald Washington (13-0, 10) who will be taking on the tough and testing Nagy Aguilera (19-8, 13). Aguilera isn't a serious threat to a top guy but if you're not going places he will really show you up and, on his day, he is a real banana skin. Sadly for Aguilera we feel that Washington is a very good prospects and we'd not be shocked if Aguilera suffers his third stoppage loss.
On the ESPN "Friday Night Fights" card we have 2 more unbeaten prospects. The most notable of those is second generation fighter Michael Hunter (5-0, 3) who will be hoping to come out on top against the experienced Harvey Jolly (14-21-1, 7) . We'd expected Hunter to over-come Jolly but it's a great test considering how much of a novice pro Hunter is. The other is Danny Kelly (6-0-1, 5) who is very heavy handed though will be up against the tough Avery Gibson (3-4-2, 1). Gibson might not be a "winner" in terms of his record though has proven to be a tough ask. Going in to this bout Gibsin holds a notable win over Olympian Ytalo Pera and has gone the distance in losses to Razvan Cojanu and Bogdan Dinu.
Another unbeaten Heavyweight is Ruann Visser (1-0, 1) who will be hoping to extend his winning run as he takes on professional tomato can Eric Lindsey (3-13-0-1, 1). Without a win in 7 years and with 5 successive stoppage losses on his record Lindsey is there to do no more than make up the numbers, something he is likely to do with no complaints.
In Ohio we're expecting to see Armando Ancona (6-2-1, 5) and Tim Washington (3-3, 3) both in action though not against each other. Sadly neither man has a penciled in opponent so far so we don't expect either man to face any even semi interesting.
