Subriel Matias Becomes New IBF Champion; Jamal James Victorious in ReturnThis action-packed fight for the IBF title between #1 contender Jeremias “Jere” Ponce and #2 ranked Subriel “El Orgullo de Maternillo” Matias was birthed due to former undisputed champ Josh Taylor vacating the title. The bout lived up to expectations as both men slung leather in a phone booth throughout the fight. With over 100 punches thrown his way in the opening round, Matias was given no chance to find a rhythm. However, the Puerto Rican used his superior ring I.Q, ability to put punches together and land with great accuracy to make the adjustment. Matias picks up the IBF belt and will undoubtedly look towards the other champs in the junior welterweight division.1 month ago 3Kings Boxing WorldWide
Elvis Rodriguez commended Joseph Adorno for accepting what figures to be a difficult fight in Rodriguez’s weight class.

Following a lengthy layoff, Rodriguez intends to prove he is a threat in the stacked junior welterweight division. “I wanna show everybody that this is the 140-pound division, that it’s a very different division,” Rodriguez said. “It’s possible that [Adorno fighting at 140] gives me a slight advantage, but I’m not worried about that,” Rodriguez said.1 month ago Boxing Scene

It isn’t always plain sailing and Chris Bourke got himself back on track after a British title setback last year.1 month ago Boxing Scene
