Duke Ragan looks promising, he's fought a lot of the top guys in the Ams, which will be useful experience for him.

Omar Juarez went to (8-0-0) last week against a tricky opponent in Willie Shaw

Israel Madrimov is fighting tonight in his 6th fight against Eric Walker

Madrimov plows through a VERY game & pretty talented Eric Walker. It was a good fight.

Sadly, Madrimov got robbed of his sixth KO, but at least he got the win. I'm still concerned that he throws too many wild shots, and always throws for the fences. He really needs to learn how to settle down, vary his timing, and conserve energy at the same time.

But what a monster. Very possibly the next Golovkin. (If he can improve his head slips.)

Ragan went 60 wins from 81 fights in the amateurs and won his recent pro debut inside 2 minutes.
