Mike Tyson Talks With WTAE About Fight Friday Night:
This Friday Sammy Vasquez Jr. and Rod Salka will headline Showtime's series "Showbox" live from the Monroeville Convention Center. Former heavyweight champion of the world and newly adorned promoter Mike Tyson talked with WTAE regarding his choice to hold the event here in the burgh, why he thinks Sammy is the future and other interesting "stuff".
Mike is a notoriously soft talker and it seems like he might not be mic'd up right so listen carefully or turn your speakers up.. or both.
The event is going down this Friday at the Monroeville Convention Center and tickets should still be available.
Anthony Morgan Vs. Khama Worthy
Our May 24th card is shaping up pretty quickly and our co-main event of the evening is great one. Khama "The Deathstar" worthy (5-2) is coming in fresh off of his :26 second KO over Jacob Butler just a few weeks ago and this time he will be squaring off against Tennessee's Anthony Morgan (5-2). Morgan has fought some of the midwest's best including Tim Goodwin, Chris Wright and Nate Landwehr. Expect this fight to be a shoot out from the bell as both men are coming in with wins and heading towards the peak of their careers.
Worthy's latest KO was recently featured on Inside MMA, which you can check out here. Morgan's latest win was over the very tough Chris Wright via split decision back in November of 2013.
Tickets are on sale today and so far we have a great event scheduled headlined by James Porter (7-2) taking on Cody Garbrandt (3-0).
Sammy Vasquez Jr. (13-0) is getting a career push (Ie: fast tracked) this Friday as he steps between the ropes for the Showbox series "The New Generation" live from the Monroeville convention center. He will be taking on fellow undefeated prospect Juan Rodriguez (11-0) in front of a partisan hometown crowd and newly crowned promoter Iron Mike Tyson.
A quick once over Rodriguez's record and you'll get the impression that Sammy is far and away his toughest competition as a professional. In fact, Rodriguez hasn't competed against anyone with a winning record (A few were .500 to his credit) yet in his career.
That is not a great stat when competing with someone like Vasquez who has stepped up multiple times in his career thus far.
Also on the card, a headliner featuring the recently ripped off Rod Salka (18-3) taking on Alexei Collado (18-0). Salka is always good for an entertaining scrap and Collado has taken on a few stiff tests thus far in his 18 fight career. One would venture to guess that Salka will be looking to get back his last Showtime performance, a razor thin loss to Canelo's brother, with a big win over an undefeated prospect.
Tickets are limited but available (last I heard) and if you have a chance to make it out, you should go. Professional boxing matches can be a great night out and it's not everyday Showbox brings the tent to town.
You will also be able to watch these fight live on Showtime.
