Many fight fans and pundits have called for more dedication to the lighter weight classes among the TV Networks and fight honchos. This weekend on HBO, they're getting what they asked for as 115-pound fighters from Nicaragua, Thailand, Japan, the U.S. and Mexico are all featured.
A rematch between Srisaket Sor Rungvisai and Roman "Chocolatito" Gonzalez headlines the card, but clashes between Naoya Inoue and Antonio Nieves, and Carlos Cuadras and Juan Francisco Estrada, truly make this a hardcore fan's card.
This week on Knuckles and Gloves Boxing Radio, author and filmmaker Brin-Jonathan Butler joins boxing historian and site founder Patrick Connor to preview it all. There may even be a visit from a special guest.
