Jamel Herring beats Lamont Roach Jr Is Vasiliy Lomachenko In His Future? Overshadowed By KSI VS. Logan Paul. In Los Angeles, WBO Super Featherweight Champion Jamel Herring Made his first defense of his championship about three and a half hours north in Fresno. By winning a 12 round decision over Lamont Roach Jr. The fight wasn’t the most exciting, but both Hearing and Roach are good boxers. Herring took a lead into the later rounds. Roach came on strong in the Late rounds even rocking Hearing a bit. Herring did score what appeared to be a knockdown himself (I forgot to mention that in the video sorry). However, the ref ruled it as a slip. Perhaps what might be most significant about this bout is that Top Rank who promotes Herring also Promotes WBC Super Featherweight Champion Miguel Berchelt. The winner of Jamel Herring vs. Miguel Berchelt is likely to get a shot at Lightweight Champion Vasiliy Lomachenko after he takes on the winner of Richard Commey vs.Teofimo Lopez who fight in December.
I think some boxing “purists” might be upset. However, Logan Paul Vs KSI Is Not Going To Break Or Make Boxing (It Might Be A Missed Opportunity). YouTube personalities Logan Paul and KSI (Real Name Olajide William Olatunji) Will box against each other in a real on the record boxing match tonight at the Staples Center, Los Angeles, California. All in all this bout is not going to make or break boxing. It’s not going to move the needle it won’t create new fans. It won’t turn fans away. I do think, however, there is a missed opportunity. That has to do with the rest of the card. World Champions Billy Joe Saunders & Devin Haney have scheduled bouts against unknown opponents. This is where I think DAZN & Matchroom are missing an opportunity. I’m not expecting them to match Saunders & Haney in 5-Star matches, but they could have put them in more compelling matchups that I think could turn viewers tuning in just for Paul/Olatunji into new boxing fans.
