Cuban light heavyweight impressive

I was in attendace at Friday's (May 7) light heavyweight bout between Yordanis Despaigne and Richard Hall at Isleta Casino and Resort near Albuquerque.

Despaigne entered Friday's fight with just five pro fights versus Hall's 36 fights and 29 wins.

But Despaigne, who had more than 400 amateur fights and is a former Olympian, won 100-90 on all three scorecards.

Despaigne is an up and comer with a good all around skill set. He isn't a household name yet, but give hime another 12-18 months and don't be shocked to see him fighting for a world title.
