Tue, 14 Nov 2017
LAS VEGAS, NV (November 13, 2017) - Undefeated super-lightweight prospect, Blair "The Flair" Cobbs (6-0, 5 KOs), who is managed by Prince Ranch Boxing (PRB), is now scheduled to fight on November 18, 2018 at the Fitzgerald's Casino & Hotel in Tunica, Mississippi. Blair, who fights in the southpaw stance, will face Ousmane Sylla (1-2-1, 1 KO) in a 6-round bout. The card titled "Fights at the Fitz", has been going strong for 14-years.
Blair, who just fought in Aguascalientes, Mexico on October 14, 2017, won a 6-round unanimous decision against Hugo Padilla. He's scheduled to fight again on December 2nd in Mexico, but will take this bout on short notice, as he looks to stay busy. Cobbs who is originally from Philly, now lives in Las Vegas.
"The fact that I'm getting another fight in before my bout in Mexico is wonderful," said Blair Cobbs. "This is exactly what I wanted when I signed with Prince Ranch Boxing...too stay busy. I'm in great shape being that I just fought last month, so taking this fight on short notice is no big deal. My trainer Bones Adams and I have been steadily grinding at the Prince Ranch Boxing gym in Las Vegas. Greg Hannely is doing a great job managing my career and I'll be ready to fight on November 18th."
"Blair Cobbs is a very talented fighter and I'm happy that I was able to get him on this card." Greg Hannely, president of Prince Ranch Boxing stated. "He'll be making a quick return right after this fight on December 2nd so I'm happy that we are keeping him busy."
