Gerald “The Jedi” Nobles Demands a Fight with Joey Abell

The big news from Philadelphia is that after Joey Abell’s dramatic knockout of Maurice Wheeler on Friday night,

“Gerald ‘The Jedi’ Nobles stormed the ring and claimed he wants next.  Joey responded by saying ‘you can get it too if you really want it.'” (as reported by

Abell (left) and Wheeler (right)

Nobles is a sometimes contender with a gaudy 26-1 (21 kayos) record.  He’s seen ring time with Bruce Seldon (a win) and Nicolay Valuev (a loss), but really no one else of note in his 13-year professional career.  Conditioning is a big question mark for Nobles – at 5 feet 11 inches tall he should be fighting at or below 220 pounds, but his weight has varied wildly from 209 pounds (October 1995) to 293 pounds (October 2006).

One wonders whether Nobles is angling for a spot on the April 26 card in Rochester, and how interested Abell might be in meeting Nobles in the ring.
