photo by Mike “Teek” McGuigan – The 147 lb NABA champion Mike Jones (20-0, 16ko’s) returns to Atlantic City on April 17th for the opportunity of a lifetime. The opponent is Hector Munoz (18-2-1, 11ko’s) of Albuquerque, NM and the vacant NABF title will also be on the line. The real kicker is that this fight will be the co-feature for the highly anticipated Kelly Pavlik vs. Sergio Martinez fight which will be televised live on HBO World Championship Boxing. While Jones fight will not make the TV airwave – it is a golden chance to impress the TV execs that Team Jones have long claimed to be shutting out their prize fighter.
If HBO likes what they see- the possibilities are endless as there is a deep pool of legitimate boxers in the Welterweight division. A big stage and on the cusp of the big money – it is what many have waited for with Jones. It will be interesting to see how he handles himself under such circumstances along with coming off a sub par performance in his last bout.
Peltz Boxing feels that they have a star in the making. I have dubbed Jones the #1 prospect in Philly. Now we will really start to get an idea of how this story might unfold. Stay tuned for more info.
