Upcoming Boxing Event: July 17th at the St Paul Armory

What to watch for: Joey Abell looks to put history, sloppy defense, bad luck, and all excuses behind him by rematching with Arron Lyons, the man who gave him the first of his four career losses.  Abell has sometimes been considered one of the unluckiest men in boxing, but he’s been on a small roll lately and this match with Lyons is an opportunity to exorcise an old demon.  Jeremy McLaurin wants to get back on a winning track and he’ll have to go through gritty brawler David Laque to get there.  Brad Patraw and Vicente Alfaro make a compelling tactical matchup, and seem to promise an exciting bout.  Old-timers Marty Lindquist and Frank Quinn throw back to an earlier era – Jesse Kelley reports that the two were considered for a match back in the ’90s.  Also, slugging youngster Jose Hilario goes for career win number 3 against debuting Matt Borgen, Bobby Butters Jr makes his pro debut against MMA crossover Travis Perzynski, and Gavin Quinn debuts against winless Ryan Stock.

The Fistic Mystic says: I would have covered this event live, but my request for a press pass was rejected by the promoter.  So pay for a ticket and see it for yourself!

  1. Wouldn’t give you a press pass? So there is noone covering the event? Not for nothing, FM, but I believe you do this for free, and have never done anyone harm in your posts, have been fair and a good ambassador for Minnesota boxing. It’s a little appalling that you weren’t allowed to cover the event. I can say more, but wont.

  2. You would’ve been given a press pass, but you’re objectivity is too much for that two-bit outift, which is on it’s last legs.

  3. Wait, the reason FM wasn’t given a press pass is because his objectivity is too much? So he needs to be more biased and less fair? I cannot believe my eyes. I could understand this if we were in China or Iran. Basically, be a PR firm for the promoter or no pass at all. Nice.

    Last legs? From what I can tell this is a hobby of FM’s, not a business.

  4. If you can read and comprehend, you’ll be able to understand that I am speaking out in favor of Fistic, not Seconds Out. I feel that he does a great job and is an excellent writer. Seconds Out is a complete joke.

  5. Got it. Read it too fast–multitasking. Did you change the post? Was it always worded like that? Even mulitasking, I should have gotten that. Thought it was someone from SO posting. Which is why i couldnt believe my eyes. Sorry dude. Makes much more sense now.
