Jason Welborn Calls Out Ryan Aston

Jason Welborn has called for Ryan Aston to take him on in a much-anticipated Black Country Boxing Derby.
 
The two time British Title contender was disappointed with quotes attributed to Aston yesterday whereby the Dudley light middleweight tried to quell the groundswell for a match-up by claiming that he’s hoping for ‘bigger, better things’.
 
It’s a match-up that Midland fight fans have long been calling for and many believe that the time is right for the popular Black Country pair, who live just a few miles from each other, to go head-to-head.

'El Matador' aiming to do a number on Stuart Hall

Unbeaten bantamweight Randy “El Matador” Caballero steps out of the shadows next month when he fights former champion Stuart Hall for the IBF championship on the Golden Gloves “Title Tornado” tournament in Monte Carlo on October 25.

Just 23, the American (21-0, 13 KOs) has already stepped into dangerous territory, having stunned Kohei Oba in an official IBF eliminator in Japan in April. This time it is all on the line as he seeks to deliver on the rich promise he showed as an amateur when he won numerous US national championship titles and captured bronze at the world championships.

“It’s a dream come true,” said the Golden Boy fighter from his home in Coachella Valley, California. “I’ve seen Hall fight, he’s been a world champion, but his time is done. It’s time for me to come up. I’m a young fighter and I’m ready to put on a show in Monte Carlo.”
