Glenn Porras vs. Jose Nieves for WBO Intercontinental Bantamweight Title Dec, 7
Fri, 30 Nov 2012
November 29, 2012 - Gary Shaw Productions bantamweight contender, Glenn Porras (28-3, 17 KOs) from M'lang, Cotabato (Del Norte) Philippines, will fight Jose Nieves (20-2-3, 9 KOs) of Carolina, Puerto Rico, for the WBO Intercontinental bantamweight title. The 10-round bout will take place at the Civic Center in Kissimmee, Florida on December 7, 2012.
"Porras is on fire of late going undefeated since 2008," said Gary Shaw. "He's been fighting at an incredible level over the last four years and he's ready to make a statement against Nieves. I expect a great performance from him on December 7th."
Porras is riding a 15-fight winning streak, knocking out over half of those opponents during this remarkable stretch. A win against Nieves will get him closer to a world title shot.
"I'm ready to represent my country of the Philippines when I fight for the second time the United States," said Glenn Porras. "I feel my career is about to take off with my promoter Gary Shaw. Together I know we can go far. I'll be ready for a world title shot in 2013"
