B&B 2017 GRADUATING CLASS
May is typically graduation month for most.... several B&B athletes will be part of the class of 2017 as well......they will be graduating from 5-0 to 6-0, from 6-0 to 7-0 and from 30-0 TO 31-0-0 and so on.
The graduation ceremony starts this Saturday, May 20th, 2017 as Steven “So Cold” Nelson 6-0 (5) makes his MSG/NY debut as he faces tough and durable Mexican power puncher Gilberto Rubio 7-5 (5) on the opening bout of Top Rank Tv's free live stream. The 6 round Light Heavyweight matchup can be seen in its entirety at www.toprank.tv
The main event that night will feature the Champ graduating with his Masters in Fist-ology. Terence "Bud" Crawford 30-0 (21) will look to grab the top spot on the P4P class. Crawford must prepare and execute for possibly his biggest test in former Olympian and world ranked Feliz Diaz 19-1 (9). Diaz presents plenty of problems. Can Crawford solve them? Better yet can Diaz ace the exam, which is equivalent to pulling off the upset over TC? Crawford vs Diaz will be the main event this Saturday night May 20th, 2017 and the WBC/WBO 140lb Belts will be on the line. The historical Madison Square Garden will play host; HBO World Championship Boxing will televise 10:15pm ET/7:15pm PT. Bob Arum/Top Rank and New Yorker Lou DiBella of DiBella Entertainment will co-promote the staked card.
The following week, May 26th, 2017, you will see another B&B student graduate in Kevin "Bad Ass" Ventura 5-0 (4). The highly skilled Ventura will take on fellow Mexican warrior Israel Rojas 10-16 (3) in a scheduled 6 rd Lightweight contest. The Ventura vs Rojas bout will be on the undercard of the return of Denver Colorado's blood and guts warrior and 2x champ Mike Mile High Alvarado 36-4 (24), along with main event former Olympian and Irish boxing Super Bantamweight sensation Michael Conlan 1-0 (1)
Then in July the fireworks show will be impressive as Next Generation 4 explodes on to the scene with a full arsenal of fire crackers including Treven Top Flight Coleman 5-0 (3), Guy Smith Jr 7-2-1 (3), John Fast-Handz Franklin 9-1-1 (4), Abel Soriano 4-0 (2), along with quick returns by both Ventura and Nelson. The big firework finale just might be the announcement of Grand Island’s own, Oliver Rivera 1-0 (1) facing former Omaha native, Nate “SOB” Denton in Super Middleweight showdown. Tickets for the July 1st for the event hosted by the Ralston Arena and Promoted by B&B Boxing Promotions will be available to purchase next week at both at the Ralston Arena Box Office and online here at www.bandbboxing.com.
