This coming Friday in Las Vegas, Nevada, fans will get Mayweather promoted card which will be aired on Showtime. It's not a huge card, but it is a show with a trio of Filipino fighters involved, against unbeaten American prospects.
One of the bouts will see the unbeaten, and highly regarded, Xavier Martinez (14-0, 10) take on Jessie Cris Rosales (22-3-1, 10). The 21 year old Martinez has been on a tear in recent years, stopping his last 6 including Filipino fighter John Vincent Moralde, and looks like he will be fighting at a very high level in a year or two. The 27 year old Rosales has lost twice this year, losing to Shakur Stevenson in 4 rounds in January and then losing a very close decision to Tyler McCreary back in July
Another bout will see the very talented Dylan Price (9-0, 6) take on Jeronil Borres (10-4-1, 5). The 21 year old Price is one of the top young Americans and was a former standout amateur, winning multiple national titles and claiming a bronze medal at the 2016 AIBA Youth World Boxing Championships. Borres on the other hand is pretty much a regional journeyman, who was blown out inside a round by Junto Nakatani last year. This should be an easy win for the talented Price.
A third bout promises to be explosive as American 20 year old puncher Cris Reyes (8-0, 7) takes on Reymond Yanong (10-4-1, 9). Between them the two men have 16T/KO's from a combined 17 wins, and have only heard the final bell in a combined 5 fights. Expect this one to finish early!
As well as the US show there will also be a note worthy card in Thailand.
The main event here will see Teerachai Kratingdaenggm (42-1, 31) defending his WBA Asia Welterweight title against Salehe Mkalekwa (14-7, 4) from Tanzania. This should be an easy win for Teerachai who is moving, slowly, towards a second world title fight. The Thai, best known for losing to Lucas Matthysse, is a good boxer, and hopefully he gets a chance to show that again, but competition like this won't prepare him for a world title fight.
A second former world title challenger on this show will be Dennapa Kiatniwat (20-2, 15), who will be up against Indonesian veteran Samuel Tehuayo (21-45-2, 16) in a bout for the WBA Asia Super Flyweight title. This will be Dennapa's first bout since he was stopped by Artem Dalakian back in June.
