1/12/2018- Verona, N.Y- After whining all last week about the lack of attention and money paid to her, the Big Bad T-Rex, had her hands full with a 41 year old grandmaw last night. Cleressa Shields, (5-0-2K) said given all her accomplishments, she should be “getting paid like Lomachenko”. I’m no huge Vasyl Lomachenko fan but Shields is delusional. You’ve only had five fights youngsta’ so SLOW ya’ roll. Tori (Sho Nuff) Nelson 17-2-2k ‘showed enough’ to inform Shields, she has work to do. Shields, has two belts already, which shows how weak the 168 lb. Class is for the ladies. Nelson with a very limited offense wasn’t the typical Shields opponent in that she didn’t throw in the towel at the first sign of danger. The bout was rather one-sided and at times, Shields’ trainers were very frustrated with her showing. At times, she looked very ordinary. Never hurting Nelson seriously, Shields had to work the entire 10 rounds. The plodding, limited Nelson was just there to boost Shield’s stats. To be such a thug, Claressa sure complains to the ref a lot. Supposedly Shields is dropping to 165 where there’s supposed to more competition and HOPEFULLY, fewer grannies. Shields is 22, her opponent was 41.
In a rousing semi, Tall, sharpshooter Jesse Hernandez (10-1-ND-7K) administered what to ME, seemed like a pretty convincing ass kickin’ on short, stocky Ernesto Garza over eight rounds in a super bantamweight struggle. Garza (9-2-5K) was able to get under the long armed attack of Hernandez for the most part, even landing a short, crisp hook dropping the eventual winner. Hernandez has an assorted arsenal and was able to drop all sorts of shit on the game Garza. There was action galore in this scrap but Hernandez just had the physical AND skill set advantage over his shorter opponent. This should’ve been the main event.
In the other aired contest, showboating Pakistani Shonjahon Ergashev (11-0-11K) got very little resistance from Sonny Fredrickson (18-0-12K). How Frederickson stopped 12 people is a mystery to this writer. He was never in this one-sided rout that only consumed three rounds. Ergashev a bit of a showboat is an ass whippin’ waiting to happen. After getting dropped and not offering up
much resistance the ref saved the reluctant Fredrikson form an extended ass whippin’.
Here we go again. Tired-ass Ghetto Boy Adrien Broner is back with his usual brand of bullshit. Now he’s talking about how he was “rushing my training camp “ for the last few fights. Save it Broner, we’re not interested in your recycled bullshit, at LEAST I’m not. I’m glad they’re making Lamont Peterson get rid of that hobo beard, heading to his inevitable beat down at the hands of Erroll Spence Jr. Next week, Now I see why hot prospect Devon Haney (18-0-12K) isn’t seen much on the tube. The undefeated, talented youngster is self promoted and no longer with TMT. I’m really looking forward to the Brandon (Bam Bam ) Rios (34-3-1-25K) encounter with once beaten Danny Garcia (33-1-19K). Heavyweight boss Deontay Wilder is always talking about other fighters on drugs. Well, he just got popped (“it wasn’t mine”) for weed. Now David Ortiz can get out HIS bowl of shit.
