Heading into last week, the focus was on young Welterweight prospect Vito Mielnicki, 17, and Middleweight Joey Spencer, 19. Both fighters came out victorious, but neither performance provided anything special for the highlight reels. It turned out to be Super-Lightweight prospect 🇺🇿Shohjahon “Descendant of Tamerlane” Ergashev (18-0-0, 16KO) of Uzbekistan, that impressed the most Friday night in Sloan, Iowa on ShoBox.
The 28 year old southpaw made quick work of Mexico’s 🇲🇽Adrian Estrella (29-5-0, 24KO) sending the 29 year old to the mat writhing in pain, with a sharp body shot just 1:32 into the first round.
R.I.P. to former Junior-Welterweight Champion 🇺🇸Saoul Mamby. Mamby was born in the Bronx, and put forth a career spanning an outlandish run of 39 years, and fought his final fight at a remarkable 61 years of age. He is well known for his win over Esteban DeJesus, and Mamby is only 1 of 4 fighters in boxing history to have fights in 5 different decades (the others being 🇺🇸Jack Johnson, 🇵🇦Roberto Duran, and 🇲🇽Kid Azteca).
.He passed away yesterday at the age of 72. We wish his family well in dealing with and coping with Saoul’s passing.
