    Very informative BD. In my book a good amateur background adds cred to a fighter's resume.

    Thanks for the info WA33. I couldn't figure out who Parody was before. I don't get the name though. Actually I didn't get JD 1986 either.

    I am looking forward to Jason Litzau next fight. I hope he has learned form his recent losses and fights tall and uses his boxing skills. I hope he has something left in the tank. We'll see.

    I added two more fighters at the bottom of the list.

    Dawejko & Wilson will be making their pro debuts soon.

    Might be time to take Chapman off the list. Hasn't fought since Feb. 2008 and seems to have retired.

    Wilson looks a bit like a bigger Kelly Pavlik.

    Tye Fields has an upcoming bout with Galen Brown on Oct 30th. Hopefully he can have some success in his comeback from the devastating loss.

    Jesse Lubash will face Martinus Clay 13-23-4(5) this Friday. Clay isn't a world beater but he owns a win over Matt Vanda who at the time was 34-1. Clay also held world rated Harry Joe Yorgey to a draw.

    Joey "Polish Thunder" Dawejko turned pro. He won a decision over Royphy Solieau. His next fight is scheduled for Feb 5.

    Twenty two year old Jeremiah Graziano is still unbeaten at 9-0 with 9 knockouts. With 8 of his 9 knockouts coming in the first round. No fight scheduled as of now.

    Don George fought once since my last update. In November he became the first man to stop Jason Naugler. He will face Afflete Phil Williams 11-2(10) on Jan 29.

    Heavyweight Mike Wilson extended his record to 4-0 with 3 knockouts.

    Mark "TNT" Tucker defended his USBO belt once since my last post. He has a fight scheuduled on April 23. No opponent yet.

    Joey Spina had a majority draw with former champ Lou Del Valle. Dissapointing result. He likely isn't going anywhere.

    Jesse Brinkley will face Curtis Stevens on Friday Night Fights on Jan 29. Last I read the bout was an IBF eliminator.

    Matt Remillard will rematch Rafael Lora on Jan 29.

    Peter Manfredo Jr will face Matt Vanda for the vacant NABF Middleweight title on Jan 29.

    Travis Kauffman will face Bernard Brown 6-5-2(3) on Feb 27. It will be his first fight back since losing to Tony Grano.

    Brian Minto will face Damon Reed 45-13(32) on March 6.

    Danny O'Connor will face Darelle Sukerow 14-15-1(5) this Friday in Boston.

    What a great performance by Brinkley! [​IMG]

    Teddy Atlas seemed unhappy after Stevens hit the canvas - it sounded like he was about to cry. [​IMG]

    Stevens was one of the overrated "Chin Checkers" who turned pro under Lou Dibella and were knocking out tomato cans and getting a lot hype. He has lost the three times he has stepped up from losing club fighters to winning club fighters/ fringe contenders.

    I believe Brinkley's victory puts him on a path to face Lucian Bute at some point. This would make him the first white American to fight for a title at supermiddleweight or above in quite awhile, I believe.

    I watched that fight last night (too), and Brinkley showed some stones. He took the fight to overrated "afrolete" Stevens![​IMG]
