One of the best teams you've had for a while. And don't forget Claressa Shields has turned pro too.

It's a shame Nico Hernandez's debut got pushed back but apparently he'll be making it soon in his hometown

It's a shame the top rank deal (maybe it was just for the debut on the crawford card) didn't come off for Hernandez, or signing with Haymon/GBP. With the weight he's at he really could've benefitted from the backing of one of the big promoters.

Errol Spence has never excited me that much as a boxer. But look at the way Jermell Charlo is talking about him. You don't see boxers talk about other boxers in this way all that often. All hushed and serious. There is a certain amount of awe here.
