Toe To Toe Tuesdays Feb 16 – This coming Tuesday, February 16th the Premier Boxing Champions is at Sam’s Town Hotel and Gambling hall in Las Vegas with a ten fight boxing card that sees the main events air on FOX Sports 1 as part of the “Toe To Toe Tuesdays” series.
The undercard features the lone female prospect on “The Money Team” as Latondria Jones returns to the ring in a four round bout.
One of the support bouts scheduled to air on the broadcasts is an 8 round Super Middleweight bout between “TMT” fighter Lanell Bellows as he takes on Antowyan Aikens in a fight that is being billed as a step-up fight for both men. Bellows went (4-0) in 2015 and at 30 years old, is looking to make a move in the Super Middleweight division.
Check out The Boxing Channel’s pre-fight interview with Lanell Bellows.
The second of the eight round features sees Light Heavyweight action as Lionell Thompson takes on Paul Parker. thompson is the “TMT” guy here, but he is facing a hungry 30 year old in Parker who is coming off the first defeat of his career.
The main event sees Alexis Santiago, who is on a nine fight winning streak, take on rugged veteran Erik Ruiz, who had a tough 2015 going 2-3 overall. Ruiz however, did defeat Golden Boy Prospect Roy Tapia in his last outing, and he is looking to turn things around.
The event is promoted by Leonard Ellerbe and Mayweather Promotions and is heavy on talent from the TMT stable of fighters. The complete card as it stands today, appears below.
