Re: Top prospect from your neck of the woods.
Willie Nelson count? He trains local but was raised a 'little up the road' in Cleveland. About an hour. We have an amateur in Popo Salinas that could make some noise when he turns pro. Dannie Williams could have beaten Hank Lundy if he hadn't gotten stupid when he had Lundy hurt. Sean Porter is listed as Akron? I thought he was Cleveland. Still could be considered back yard.
Fighters at the amateur card I attended here on Saturday night.
Jeff Lampkin, former IBF cruiser weight champ
Some guy named Paul Spadafora. He must have been there cuz some of this gym mates were on the card from the looks of it. He was standing next to me during the main event and we were bitching about the ref getting too involved and trying to keep a fight from breaking out.
Edit. Left out Darnell Boone.
Youngstown is an interesting place when it comes to boxing. Kelly Pavlik usually shows up but this card was put on by Jack Loew.
