Rondale Hubbert (10-3-1, 6 KO’s) of Minneapolis lost a hard fought decision to Las Vegas super lightweight Ladarius Miller (9-0, 1 KO) of Las Vegas on Tuesday, September 29th in Las Vegas. Despite taking the fight on short notice, was told by numerous ringside observers that Hubbert showed very well against the Mayweather Promotions signed Miller. Official scores read 60-54, 59-55, 59-55.

“He was nothing special and I’ve said before that I can compete with and beat the best in the world” said Hubbert. It was a great learning experience and I was making Mayweather jump up and yell at Miller during the fight which let me know that I was doing good. I left without a mark and landed the harder punches. But hey, it’s the boxing business and I was in his backyard so I know I needed a knockout to win. All in all, I am happy with my performance. I just should’ve put more pressure on him. I waited a little bit too much. I am going right back to the gym to continue doing what I love to do. My time will come and I think I am going to stay in my own backyard for a couple fights where I have more of a fair chance.”


Minnesota Jr. Welterweight champion Rondale “Give Em Hell” Hubbert (10-2-1, 6 KO’s) will meet 22 year old undefeated prospect Ladarius Miller (8-0, 1 KO) in a six round fight this Tuesday night at the Palms Casino and Resort in Las Vegas, Nevada. Miller fights for Mayweather Promotions and is trained by Jeff Mayweather. The bout is contracted at a weight of 137 pounds. The fight came up for Hubbert on relatively short notice considering the high profile opponent and card but Hubbert says he is ready to do his best to bring home the win. Miller has exceptional boxing talent but has only 1 win coming by way of knockout. He has also never faced a fighter in the pro ranks to this point with the experience and style of Hubbert so it should be a nice test for both boxers.

“It’s a winnable fight and I am going to try hard to get this upset” said Hubbert.

The show will be televised on Fox Sports 1 and there is a small chance Hubbert’s bout could make television if the featured bouts end early.

Anthony “The Bullet” Bonsante (33-12-3, 18 KO’s) is set for a return to the boxing ring at the fairgrounds in Kalispell, Montana this Saturday night. Bonsante is facing southpaw Daniel Gonzalez (10-36-2, 3 KO’s) in a super middleweight bout. In actuality, the fight is a tune up for Bonsante’s retirement fight set for early next year against Yory Boy Campas. But neither Bonsante, or Gonzalez is looking at tomorrow’s fight as an easy bout. Bonsante knows anything can happen in boxing and Gonzalez said in an interview that he is coming to upset the former Contender TV star Bonsante.
Bonsante and manager Luke Gentz arrived in Montana this afternoon and the fighters will weigh in at 7pm tonight. There is word of a possible Internet stream that we will confirm or deny when more details are available. Follow us on Facebook also for more photo’s and info.


Minnesota State Welterweight champion Jamal “Shango” James of Minneapolis improved to (18-0, 9 KO’s) moments ago with an impressive 10 round unanimous decision victory over Juan Carlos Abreu (17-2-1, 16 KO’s) at the Full Sail University in Winter Park, Florida.
James boxed nicely in rounds 1 and 2 but Abreu began to come forward in the next three rounds to even things up. Abreu was credited with a knockdown but it looked more like a tangle of legs that sent James down in round 4. James and his corner switched things up however and the Minnesota fighter began to box behind a hard jab and move to avoid the pressuring Abreu as the fight went to the middle rounds. Despite being labeled the “boxer” and Abreu the “puncher”, it was James who was hardly shaken while Abreu was left rocked and dazed on more than one occasion. James did a great job of jabbing to set up both high volume combinations and single hard uppercuts on the inside and power punches from a distance. James floored Abreu once in round 6 and nearly again in round 7. Still, the action was exciting for both fighters as James outboxed Abreu while making him miss wildly in the final round, closing a wonderful performance and winning by scores of 97-91, 96-92, 96-92.


Jamal “Shango” James (17-0, 9 KO’s) of Minneapolis is set for the biggest fight date of his pro career as he faces heavy punching Juan Carlos Abreu (17-1-1, 16 KO’s) of the Dominican Republic this Friday night. James versus Abreu was set to be the other televised bout to the main event which was going to feature Osseo’s “Golden” Caleb Truax (25-2-2, 15 KO’s) against Maryland’s Fernando Guerrero (27-3, 19 KO’s). This was set to be one of the biggest road weekends I can think of in terms of Minnesota Boxing. Two Minnesota boxers being featured on the road, National TV on hand, in bouts each had a good chance of winning. That was until a mix up with pre-fight medicals yesterday forced the Truax-Guerrero bout to be called off.


Harold Calderon of Miami, Florida knocked out ash majek at :48 into round two. Calderon landed body shot after body shot before dropping majek with one to put an end to the bout.

Celso Ramirez of Minneapolis had a triumphant pro debut, stopping robbinsdale’s alex wiggs 2:00 into the first round. Ramirez rocked wigs with left hooks, right hands, and uppercuts to the head which dropped the brave wiggs twice in the bout. Referee Scott Erickson waived the fight off with wiggs getting battered. Ramirez looked sharp and explosive.

Jonathan Perez won a six round decision in the nights pro main event. Perez gave up a lot of size so boxed more then he wanted to bang in a fun fight. Perez boxed smart and put on a good performance in front of a full and supportive crowd.


MN Bantamweight champ Jonathan “J-Blaze” Perez (9-0, 6 KO’s) will face welterweight Omar Avelar (3-14, 2 KO’s) of Washington in tonight’s headlining pro bout of the evening at El Nuevo Rodeo Restaurant in Minneapolis, MN. Perez found out his opponent would be over weight the other day. So after cutting to fight shape, Perez had to put on pounds to even things out. Perez ended up weighing in last night at 135 while his opponent was 140.
 “He’s a bigger guy” said Perez. “I was under weight but put some back on after finding out he would be over. We need to fight, and we need to win so I took the fight. I’m used to being ready for anything that happens in boxing so I am not worried about him being bigger. I spar bigger guys so it’s not a big deal. It’s been a fun training camp. I trained for two months with my big brother Jamal James, helping him prepare for his fight.”
