On August 23rd, 2013, USBA #10 Amir "Hardcore" Mansour (18-0) will look to continue his path of carnage in the HW division when he takes on USBA #9 Maurice "Sugar Moe" Harris (26-17-2). The outcome will lay down the blueprint for both warriors careers.
Amir Mansour's has suffered many setbacks in his pro boxing career and none of which were suffered inside of the ring. At he age of 41, Mansour has completed numerous jail sentences. Mansour will not allow past issues to deter his dream of carrying the Heavyweight Championship. For most the age 41 signifies the end of a career but in Mansour's case it is different. Mansour has not taken punishment throughout his career like his counterpart. Not to mention most of "Hardcore's" in ring encounters never make it the distance.
Mansour carriers vicious power in both hands. He has the ability to stop any man who is standing across from him when the opening bell sound. Mansour, a fan favorite on GFL.tv, will not be fighting for the first time in front of a WORLDWIDE audience and a decisive win over HW spoiler Harris will ensure that it is not his last. A win here will not only capture the USBA HW title but will ensure him a top 15 ranking in the IBF positioning him for a showdown with current IBF HW Champion Wladimir Klitschko.
With 14 KO's in Mansour's 18 fights, it is almost guaranteed that the WORLDWIDE LIVE audience watching at home on GFL.tv will catch a highlight reel KO. That is unless veteran HW upset specialist Maurice Harris has anything to say about it. Harris has shared the ring who's who in the HW division. Harris has fought the likes of Larry Holmes,Chris Byrd, Siarhei Liakhovich, Fres Oquendo, and Tony Thompson. His controversial stoppage loss to Tony Thompson was part of an IBF Box Off for a shot at Wladimir Klitschko's title.
Most likely, this encounter will be the last chance saloon for the 37 year old battle worn Harris. A win here could lead to one last run at his dream of conquering the HW title. Since his loss to Thompson, Harris is has 2 wins and 2 lossed. One of the losses was a very controversial decision lost to Edmund Gerber in Germany. His other loss was against another HW fringe contender Albert Sosnowski in a 3 round split decision as a part of the Prizefighter Tournament. Recently he defeated Jason Bergman, via close split decision, in Bergman's hometown.
With Father Time creeping up on both men, this is their chance to make a statement LIVE in front of a WORLDWIDE audience on GFL.tv this Friday night at the Dover Downs in Dover, Delaware. Even though the bout is scheduled for 12 rounds, fans worldwide can expect a KO of the Year candidate in what could be a Fight of the Year candidate as well!!
In the Co-Main Event of the evening, Edgar Santana (27-4) & Michael Clark (44-8-1) will go head to head for the vacant NABA Light Welterweight title. This is another true crossroads fight with both men being 1-1 in their past two fights.
Edgar Santana, at one point was a very promising prospect, but seemingly can't make it over the hump that would take him from contender to champion. Luckily for Santana, his chances are not up. A upset loss to Manuel Perez (16-7-1) set him back in his quest for the title but "El Chamco" was able to stop the very tough Eddie Soto in 3 rounds. Now, with a title in his grasp, Michael "Cold Blood" Clark will try to intervene in front of a WORLDWIDE audience LIVE on GFL.tv.
Clarke, "The Conteder: Season 2" alumni, is looking to break away from the gatekeeper title to become an actual contender for the title. Winning the NABA title will not only add a great name to his resume but also send his name up the rankings. Clark is looking for back to back wins for the first time since March of 2011.
Both men are going to stop at nothing to win this belt and put together back to back wins while positioning themselves for a bigger name fight. The winner here could open a lot of doors for themselves i
