Upcoming Boxing Event: Walker MN on December 20

An unusually crowded fight card has been assembled for the December 20 boxing show at Northern Lights Casino in Walker, Minnesota.  According to Cory Rapacz on December 4th, the card looked like this (Rapacz is no longer associated with this event, but as of December 4 he was):

  • John Sargent (28-5 with 17 kayos) -vs- Marcus Rhode (34-35 with 29 kayos), heavyweights, scheduled for 6 rounds
  • Ben Lane (4-1 with 4 kayos) -vs- Nick Whiting (0-8-1), light heavyweights, scheduled for 5 rounds
  • Jesse Barbot (4-4 with 3 kayos) -vs- Mike Davis (2-5 with 2 kayos), junior middleweights, scheduled for 4 rounds
  • Brad Croaker (2-0-1 with 2 kayos) -vs- Mike Howell (1-1 with 1 kayo), cruiserweights, scheduled for 4 rounds
  • Tyler Gould (5-2 with 5 kayos) -vs- Bill Arnott (4-4 with 1 kayo), junior middleweights, scheduled for 4 rounds
  • Yevgeniy “Boris” Shishporenok (5-0 with 5 kayos) -vs- Mike Stevens (0-1), heavyweights, scheduled for 4 rounds
  • Ronnie Peterson Jr (1-0 with 1 kayo) -vs- TBA, class undetermined, scheduled for 4 rounds
  • Antwan Robertson (4-0 with 3 kayos) -vs- Tim Watts (0-3), class undetermined, scheduled for 4 rounds

Several matches are repeats:  Sargent and Rhode last met in the ring in March of 2004, a decision win for Sargent.  Lane and Whiting fought a spirited bout last April which resulted in Whiting’s first career non-loss.  And Antwan Robertson and Tim Watts met last May in bout that ended with a 2nd round TKO victory for Robertson.   Afterwards the larger Watts claimed that he hadn’t been fit and on weight for the bout and clamored for a rematch.
