BREAKING NEWS: Luis Yanez Making Pro Boxing Debut at AAC
I do weird things while (only technically, it appears) on vacation. Like, for example, wonder if the sport of boxing is alive and wonder if Duncanville fighter Luis Yanez is well.
The answer: Yes. And Yes.
A lil' boxing birdie whispered to me this morning that Yanez - who flamed out amidst much controversy at last summer's Olympics - will make his professional boxing debut during a six-fight card February 20 at American Airlines Center.
There will be a
Jan. Dec. 30 press conference and the fight will be televised by Fox Sports Net. I've now exhausted my knowledge of Yanez, the event and boxing.
I return myself to my regularly scheduled nap. - Richie Whitt
