Here’s the card for next week’s event at Grand Casino Hinckley.
- Zach Walters -vs- Jim Strohl (light heavyweights)
- Fred Moore -vs- Carl Daniels
- Darby Smart -vs- Felix Flores
- Tim Taggart -vs- TBA
- James Tayor -vs- Lucas St Clair
Aside from the fact that you probably didn’t know James Taylor was a boxer (yuk yuk), the surprise here is Darby Smart, a formerly ambitious bantamweight from Chisholm whose record has sat at 10-4 (4 kayos) for fifteen months. Smart, no spring chicken at 37 years old, has fought some talented young guys. The four losses came to boxers with a combined total record of 43-4. His opponent for this bout will be the human punching bag Felix Flores of Columbia, whose respectable record of 14-8 (11 kayos) belies the fact that from March 2004 to December 2006 he lost eight consecutive matches, finally breaking the skid with a split decision win in August of this year.
