Some rumors and some dates.
Update: Willshawn Boxley has informed me that he will also be fighting on August 29. He will get to have a rematch of his rained out fight with Will Hernandez.
On the same night that Phil “The Drill” Williams had his marquee victory over Antwun Echols, Marcus Oliveria (pictured on the left) dropped the biggest bombs of the night on Otis Griffin. As far as the regulars of Minnesota boxing cards go, Only Joey “Minnesota Ice” Abell hits harder in my book. Oliveria took out Phil Williams when they fought and has kept on with his undefeated ways. He will be showing off his skills August 29, on a Seconds Out Promotions card in WI. The next scheduled pro card (not yet on boxrec.com) is in Rochester MN, on September 12. This card is rumored to have Raphael Butler, in what would be a tune up for his big showdown with Joey Abell in November. I have also heard rumors that Dave Peterson and Corey Rodriguez will also be featured.
In what in my opinion is the most exciting rumor, Andy “Kaos” Kolle and “Golden” Caleb Truax look to be close to a deal to have them fight in October? Only source I have for this is the rumor mill at the most recent fights. Kolle defending his title against the number one contender will always rank highly in my book. And judging from comments and fan interaction it may be the biggest fight out there.
We will keep you up to date on all the major news as it comes in. I will be trying to track down more specifics on the September 12 fight card in Rochester.
