CARL FRAMPTON COMES ALIVE ON CBS SATURDAY
“PREMIER BOXING CHAMPIONS” RETURN TO CBS TV
San Francisco, CA– In his early days, IBF 122 lb, guy Carl Frampton was a solid UK prospect who learned his trade on British TV that was available here in America. Piece by piece, Frampton got better while ascending the rankings.
BODY SHOT ON IRISHMAN HEARD HERE IN FRISCO
What caught my eye was the thumping he put on Jeremy Parodi (37-2, 9 KOs) four fights ago that ended in a clean one-shot body punch knockout. That was Framton coming into his own as the #1 or 2 best 122 lb. fighter in the world seeing true World champ Guillermo Rigondeaux is moving to 126 and a WBO clash with featherweight (126) champ Vasyl Lomachenko (4-1, 2 KOs).
BRITISH CHAMPION IMPRESSIVE IN FEBRUARY TITLE DEFENSE
Now 20-0 (14 KOs) Frampton has defended the aforementioned IBF laurels he won from Kiko Martinez on points in 2014 against capable Chris Avalos (25-3, 19 KOs) in February and finished him via TKO 5. numbers perspective
MEXICAN CHALLENGER HAS SHODY RESUME
Alejandro Gonzalez Jr. has an impressive record of 28-1-1, 15 KOs “numbers wise.” But that’s where his impressiveness ends. Looking at his resume, there are more stiffs present than the Chicago morgue on a Sunday morning.
MEXICAN WARRIOR WILL NOT LAST ROUTE
This resident of Tijuana should enjoy his time in the limelight, because it will end inside of 12 rounds Saturday as Al Haymon’s Premier Boxing Champions goes again on CBS TV Saturday afternoon.
CBS TV CARD BEGINS AT 4 PM ET OR 1 PM PT
Mexican American heavyweight Chris Arreola (36-4, 31 KOs) is a guy that admits to a lack of discipline professionally. Rarely, if ever has Arreola been in tip top condition. So when I hear him talking about this interviews, I think now maybe he wasn’t kidding when he said on Ring Talk Worldwide. “I get up in the morning, drink beers and go to the Taco truck before the gym,”
“BIG FRED” KASSI HAS NICE MONIKER..THAT’S IT!
This is a fight designed for Arreola to win. Fred Kassi is 18-3, 10 KOs and has a three year hiatus in 11 pro years. He has only one name of note on his ledger. In 2009, Kassi lost on points in six heats to washed up Mike Tyson lookalike Lionel Butler (32-17, 25 KOs). If you haven’t figured it out yet, Fred should falter unless Chris comes in fat, slow and unmotivated.
