No Fulton vs Figueroa 2, no drawback. Showtime has formally introduced its February twenty fifth tripleheader at The Armory in Minneapolis, which sees Subriel Matias tackle Jeremias Ponce for the vacant IBF tremendous light-weight title in the principle occasion.
We’ve mentioned that struggle a lot, and suffice to say it will likely be a banger and a half. Let’s focus as an alternative on the opposite two items of the printed.
Jamal James (27-2, 12 KO) faces Argentina’s Alberto Palmetta (18-1, 13 KO) within the center bout. “Shango” hasn’t fought since a tough loss to Radzhab Butaev two Octobers in the past, whereas Palmetta is 12-0 with 11 KO’s since getting stopped by future Jaime Munguia sufferer Gonzalo Coria in 2017.
Palmetta truly fought on that very same Butaev present, beating countryman Yeis Gabriel Solano by break up choice.
The opener pits Elvis Rodriguez (13-1-1, 12 KO) in opposition to Joseph Adorno (17-1-2, 14 KO) at 140. Each males are on the comeback path; Prime Rank launched Rodriguez after a shock break up choice loss to Kenneth Sims Jr in 2021, and after scoring strong knockouts of Juan Pablo Romero and Juan Jose Velasco, that is his greatest alternative but to show they made a mistake.
The 23-year-old Adorno has lengthy been his personal worst enemy, shedding a number of alternatives on account of lacking weight and hitting his profession nadir in an 0-1-2. All hope isn’t misplaced, although; the defeat got here to Michel Rivera and one of many attracts got here in opposition to Jamaine Ortiz, and he notched a strong victory at 140 final September by edging out unbeaten Hugo Alberto Roldan on Showtime.
Stable matchmaking. I don’t assume both one can be “completed” with a loss, however there’s positively strain on each.
Three good, aggressive matchups, at the least one among which goes to blow the roof off. Stacks up properly in opposition to Paul vs Fury, don’t you assume?
