No Holds Barred: Boxing's Super Duper Saturday, December 10 - Cuellar-Mares, Charlo-Williams, Joshua-Molina, Ruiz-Parker
On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman previews the main title fights which will take place on Boxing's Super Duper Saturday, December 10.
The action starts in Auckland, New Zealand, as two undefeated heavyweights meet for the vacant WBO heavyweight title. Mexican-American Andy Ruiz Jr. (29-0, 19 KOs) will face Joseph Parker of New Zealand (21-0, 18 KOs) at the Vector Arena in Auckland, New Zealand. This fight will be shown live in New Zealand on Sky Arena, in the U.K. on BoxNation, and in the U.S. in Spanish on UniMas, and on tape-delay in the U.S. on HBO.
A second major heavyweight belt will be on the line that day, this time in the Manchester Arena in Manchester, England. Unbeaten IBF champion and 2012 Olympic gold medalist Anthony Joshua (17-0, 17 KOs) will face veteran Eric Molina (25-3, 19 KOs). This will headline a card shown live in the U.K. on Sky Sports Box Office, with the Joshua-Molina fight also being shown live in the U.S. on Showtime.
That evening in the U.S. there will also be a championship doubleheader at the Galen Center at USC in Los Angeles, which is part of the PBC (Premier Boxing Champions) series of TV shows. In a match postponed from June, WBA featherweight champion Jesus Cuellar (28-1, 21 KOs) will face former three-division champion Abner Mares (29-2-1, 15 KOs), and IBF super welterweight champion Jermall Charlo (24-0, 18 KOs) will fight undefeated contender Julian "J-Rock" Williams (22-0-1, 14 KOs). This will be shown live in the U.S. on Showtime and in Mexico on Televisa.
We spoke with Jesus Cuellar, Abner Mares, Jermall Charlo, and Julian Williams on media conference calls. We also run a short interview with promoter Richard Schaefer conducted by our colleague Chris Baldwin. And we explain how and why the idiot mainstream and boxing media are mainly ignoring the significance of all these fights on Super Duper Saturday, why HBO's latest mismatch is not included as part of Super Duper Saturday, and much more.
