    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!

     

    Boxer Nate Tubbs, brother of Heavyweight champion Tony Tubbs, promoted the 'Night of the Execution' boxing event. This show also displayed the talents of up and coming boxers like John L Smith,  Salvador Perez, Carl McNickles just to name a few.

     

    A Great Highlight of this event was when former world champs like James Douglas (former undisputed world heavyweight boxing champion) and Aaron Pryor International Boxing Hall of Fame (former world Junior Welterweight champion) Tony Tubbs  (former WBA Heavyweight Championship) and others came to the ring igniting thunderous roars from the crowd.
