Upcoming Boxing Event: December 18th at Grand Casino Hinckley

What to watch for:  Jessie Nicklow tries to get his groove back after tallying a loss and a draw in his last two fights – to do it he’s got to beat hot prospect Fernando Guerrero.  For Guerrero’s part, a win against Nicklow would be the biggest of his career so far.  Philadelphia fighter Lanard Lane meets up with soft-tossing Morroccan Said El Harrak.  Jamar Patterson, who bailed on a match with Mohammed Kayongo back in July, gets another Minnesota chance against slugging Ohioan Shawn Porter.  Cerresso Fort has a date with another tough brawler – this time it’s Mike Davis of Minot, North Dakota.  Davis, a former welterweight, hasn’t been seen in the ring since his brutal KO of Jesse Barbot at Shooting Star Casino in October.  Javontae Starks, the next big thing in Minnesota boxing, looks to build himself up some more against tough Mike Culbert of Wisconsin.  Derek Winston gets a second chance to make a good first impression against winless Taide Torres of Milwaukee.  Winston’s pro debut was much anticipated, but he was unable to put away David Laque in his pro debut, thanks in part to an injured right hand.  Jeremy McLaurin faces undefeated Texan Darryl Hayes in his first match since signing a promotional deal with Midwest Sports Council.
