On this week's edition of SecondsOut Radio, host Eddie Goldman previews the appealing quartet of major title fights which are coming up this Saturday, September 13, and discusses boxing's talent-rich lightweight division.
On that date, WBA, WBO, and IBF lightweight champion Nate Campbell (32-5-1, 25 KOs) will defend his belts against Joan Guzman (28-0, 17 KOs) in Biloxi, Mississippi. This fight will be shown in the U.S. on Showtime.
Also on that date, the linear lightweight champion, Joel Casamayor (36-3-1, 22 KOs), will defend his title against Juan Manuel Marquez (48-4-1, 35 KOs) in Las Vegas, Nevada. This fight will be shown in the U.S. on HBO pay-per-view.
The co-feature on the HBO pay-per-view is the rematch between WBC super welterweight champion Sergio Mora (21-0-1, 5 KOs) and Vernon Forrest (40-3, 29 KOs).
The co-feature on the Showtime telecast is the first defense of his belt by WBC super lightweight champion Timothy Bradley (22-0, 11 KOs), who fights Edner Cherry (24-5-2, 12 KOs).
This should be an exciting, important, and highly entertaining weekend of fights.
On a series of media conference calls, we had a chance to ask questions of all these eight fighters and let them speak for themselves: Nate Campbell and Joan Guzman, Joel Casamayor and Juan Manuel Marquez, Sergio Mora and Vernon Forrest, and Timothy Bradley and Edner Cherry.
