Blair Cobbs Back in Action on Garcia Undercard

It’s always interesting when undefeated Welterweight prospect 🇺🇸Blair Cobbs (13-0-1, 9KO) is in action. The 30 year old Philadelphia native who goes by the ring moniker of “The Flair” brings plenty of personality to the ring, but his statement of being the “most exciting man in boxing” is definitely a stretch. While both his delivery on the microphone and skills in the ring can use some polish, he has made fun, fan friendly fights so far.

Friday night, Cobbs will continue to build his brand as he makes his first appearance of 2020 in a 10 round bout against Ghana’s 🇬🇭Samuel Kotey Neequaye (23-2-0, 16KO). The fight will serve as the undercard to rising Lightweight Ryan Garcia’s main event.

Former Welterweight Titlist 🇺🇸Danny “Swift” Garcia (36-2-0, 21KO👊) made for an easy nights work, dissecting 🇺🇦Ivan Redkach (23-5-1, 18KO👊) through the length of the fight and leaving no doubts as to who the superior fighter was in this contest at Garcia’s second home away from home at the Barclays Center in 🏟️Brooklyn, New York.  For Redkach, it was a tough pill to swallow (more on that to be spoken of) in accepting the truth as he had no answers for what Garcia brought to the ring with him on Saturday night.

Things We’ve Noticed:🤔 The Resourceful Bounce Back Nature of the 🥇Olympic Gold-Medalist

By Tré Berry III🖊️

A combined record of ✅86 wins – 46 losses❌…interesting, but what record does that pertain to? 🤔that is the cumulative results throughout all of boxing history when 🥇Olympic Gold-Medalists at the professional level fight in rematches against a non-Gold-Medal recipient boxer that they had previously lost to. The “86” represents those Gold-Medalists that won gold, and the “46” represents fights in which those Gold-Medalists couldn’t turn it around, losing yet again to the same boxer – all of that amounting to a solid 65.2% success rate for amateur boxers of that creed.
