Image result for santa cruz vs mares 2

On June 9th 2018, we will witness the rematch of Leo Santa Cruz (34-1-1, 19 KO’s) and Abner Mares (34-1-2, 15 KO’s).  As in their first fight, Santa Cruz VS Mares 2 will take place at the Staples Center in Los Angeles California, and will be brought to you by Premier Boxing Champions.  The fight will air on ShowTime Championship Boxing.  Their first encounter was a wild one with over 1000 punches thrown in the fight, with Santa Cruz winning by decision.  The rematch should be just as exciting.

ShowTime will be airing another fight brought by Premier Boxing Champions on April 7 2018 as well, and it will be a big one.  This fight will be a title unification bout between the WBA Junior Middleweight Champion Erislandy Lara (25-2-2, 14 KO’s) and the IBF Junior Middleweight Champion Jarrett “Swift” Hurd (21-0, 15 KO’s).  A venue has not yet been chosen for this fight, but an announcement should be coming soon.  This fight will be a part of a sort of unofficial Junior Middleweight tournament, with the winner presumably taking on the current WBC Junior Middleweight champion Jermell Charlo.  Hurd’s most recent ring appearance was a 10th round stoppage victory over former champion Austin Trout, that won him the vacant IBF title.  Lara recently fought Terrell Gausha, and defeated him in a one sided decision victory.
