Podcast listeners heard Scott Christ and me despairing earlier this week over upcoming October weekends with no televised boxing. It seems we panicked too quickly, as a result of Triller stepped in to fill no less than one hole on the calendar with an October 22nd live show and FITE broadcast referred to as ‘LINEAGE OF GREATNESS II’.
The present occurs at Memorial Corridor in Kansas Metropolis, Kansas, and options 4 Notable Boxing Sons:
- Kenzie “TCB” Morrison (20-0, 18 KOs), heavyweight, begotten of heavyweight champion Tommy Morrison
- Jose Luis Castillo Jr (24-3, 18 KOs), junior light-weight, begotten of two-time light-weight champion Jose Luis Castillo
- Roberto Duran Jr (9-2, 7 KOs), welterweight, begotten of four-division world champion Roberto Duran
- Steve Cunningham Jr (debut), middleweight, begotten of two-time cruiserweight champion Steve Cunningham
Morrison is the headliner, and a veteran of no less than three different exhibits at Memorial Corridor. His most up-to-date outing was one other occasion on FITE again in April, the place he knocked out “the now notorious Hasim Rahman Jr.,” because the press launch describes him.
Representatives for Triller instructed Unhealthy Left Hook that the occasion can be accessible as a FITE PPV or via the FITE+ subscription package deal. No opponents introduced but, however the sons are the celebs, and there’s nonetheless a month to guide their challengers and any further supporting fights.
To place it diplomatically, this has been an inconsistent yr in terms of Triller truly delivering on booked and scheduled occasions. However, this one comes from Ares Leisure, a promoter with an extended observe file of comparable exhibits throughout the Midwest, and fills a large open gap on the boxing calendar. In case you’re like Scott and want Saturday boxing to provide order to your schedule and function to your existence? The Preventing Sons of Triller simply saved your October twenty second weekend.
And, with out presuming to inform Triller learn how to deal with their enterprise… If we don’t have a Michael Buffer Jr or a Jimmy Lennon Jr Jr dealing with ring announcement duties, are we actually taking advantage of this chance?
