Highly touted super welterweight prospect Eric Tudor (5-0) will return to the ring on October 20th on the Floyd Schofield-Daniel Rosas undercard in Indio, Calif. The fight is part of Golden Boy’s monthly prospect series that stream live on DAZN.

Tudor’s opponent will be the battle tested Isiah Jones (9-7). The Detroit native has only lost to undefeated opponents.

If all goes well, Tudor will return to action on a major card in December.

“I’m very focused on taking care of business in October against against Jones. There is a lot on the line. I’m grateful to the opportunities Golden Boy has given me and I believe that another victory should earn me a long term promotional agreement,” said Tudor.

The 2020 Romanian Olympian made his pro debut in February when he stopped Dalton Duncan in the opening stanza of their bout scheduled for four rounds.

He has followed that up performance with four more victories including three by knockout. He was last in action in February when he stopped fellow unbeaten prospect Edgar Valenzuela (now 7-1) in two rounds.

Tudor’s trainer Derik Santos is very pleased with the progress his young charge has made in the professional ranks.

“You can see he is growing as he has progressed from four to six rounds,” said Santos. “He already had a pro style and we are just developing it more every time he steps in the ring. I’m very happy with the improvements he’s made.”

Falcao-Adriel set for September 17

Tampa, FL (August 24, 2022) – Super middleweight boogeyman Yamaguchi Falcao looks to continue his winning ways Saturday, September 17 when he battles iron-chinned Argentine Abel Adriel at the Alessi Gym in Tampa, FL.

Representing his native Brazil, Falcao won a bronze medal at the 2012 Olympic Games. As a pro, the skilled southpaw’s an excellent 21-1-1 with 9 wins by knockout. In the last 12 month, Falcao won the WBC Latino, WBA Fedecaribe, WBC Feconsur and NABA super middleweight championships. In his most recent bout, the Florida-based Falcao defeated Damian Bonelli by unanimous decision.

Falcao’s also repeatedly expressed his willingness to fight any top super middleweight on the planet but is yet to find a dance partner.

A 53 fight veteran, Adriel’s fought in Argentina, Brazil, Russia, Abidjan, Canada and the United States. The 33-year-old’s record is 26-24-3 with 5 KO’s. He’s battled the likes of Marcelo Coceres, Sergei Vorobev, Alejandro Silva, Billi Godoy and Michael Olivera.

Falcao-Adriel is scheduled for eight rounds.

“We went through a couple of opponents already so we appreciate Adriel’s willingness to fight,” said Falcao’s promoter, Jody Caliguire of Fire Fist Boxing Promotions. “Yama trains for every fight like it’s the biggest of his career so I expect a strong showing on the 17th because we’re still targeting the elite super middleweights.”
