Lefties Cave, Bolum sign for title tilt
Tyson Cave and Nestor Bolum, both southpaws, have signed contracts to fight for the World Boxing Council (WBC) Continental Americas super bantamweight title in Halifax on Jan. 29.
Promoter Robert Cave said the two have formally agreed to the 122-pound clash on Jan. 29 at Palooka’s Gym in Halifax.
The 28-year-old Tyson Cave, 12-1, is the Canadian super bantamweight champion. Bolum, a 26-year-old from Nigeria, is 8-0.
Cave has four career knockouts while Bolum has just one.
The winner can expect a top-20 ranking by the WBC.
More details, including the undercard bouts, are due out next week.
All 8 fights in 2006-2007 in South Africa.
Top 20 World rating?
Says on Bolums boxrec bio that he was a 2004 olymian.
I hear he has fought but just not posted. I could be wrong but thats what I hear. Either way this is a good step up. Former olympian and undefeated pro. You know he will be good.
Last friday in Montreal Lemieux face a guy who had
18-1 record and it last 2 rounds
Nobody likes to mention that thats a good point. When one guy trains for 6 weeks & the other trains for 2 its not a fair fight.
So...whats the deal? Is this fight still on? Or has the little guy retired?
