    New UBO World Cruiserweight Champion: Willie Herring - Florida Boxer


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     gregreesehd says: 'Wow! Willie Herring knocked Springs down after about three or four hard punches and although Springs got back up it looked as if he didn't know where he was. The crowd loved the sportsmanship of both fighters, but they seemed to be very excited every time Herring hit hard or put his hands up as he did throughout the fight!'
    - elchueco, CNN iReport producer

    Saturday night, October 1, 2011 - Willie Herring from Orlando, Florida beat Cincinnati champion and former WBC World title-challenger Ravea Springs, to win the vacant UBO Universal Boxing Organization™ World Cruiserweight title. The fight was incredible!
