Magomedov “predator” was positioned to face Elias Espadas as the co-feature on this Saturday’s HBO Latino Boxing broadcast live streaming from Uncas Ballroom at Mohegan Sun Resort & Casino in Uncasville, Connecticut but a serious illness has forced doctors to sideline the 24-year old young Russian middleweight. The HBO Latino Boxing telecast will start from 11:00 p.m. ET (live ET/tape-delayed PT), will now contain a ten-round middleweight attraction between Vaughn Alexander (7-0, 5 KOs) and Andres Calixto Rey (14-3, 9 KOs). Both were originally scheduled to confront each other in an eight-round non-televised bout on the Mohegan Sun’s Rising Stars Boxing match undercard.
Alexander, 31, is the older brother of former IBF Welterweight World Champion Devon Alexander and a native of St. Louis, Missouri. Vaughn made his.
Rey, 34 years old made his professional debut in 2007 with a knockout and continued to win his first ten challenges, seven by way of knockout. He was unbeatable since 2013 when he suffered a KO at the hands of top ten junior middleweight Terrell Gausha. Rey has secured his last three fights with one knockout. This is only his third fight on United states and his first combat in the northeast. His prior US fights were in Texas.
Kathy Duva the ceo of main events said, “It’s very shamefull to lose Arif’s fight, but this is an tremendous replacement. I’m excited that more boxing supporters will get to see Vaughn Alexander in the ring. He’s rapidly making up for lost time and this is a chance for him to really get his name out there in what I think to be a difficult fight against Andres Rey.”
