Johnson City’s own, Robert Hall, will battle Dimar Ortuz for the Universal Boxing Federation Intercontinental championship. This is the biggest fight of Hall’s career, who owns a 10-0 record.
Ortuz’s trainer is boxing great “Sugar” Shane Mosley. Mosley’s son, Shane Mosley Jr., will also fight at the Tri-Cities Championship boxing event Saturday.
“I love boxing,” said Mosley. “I love it with all my heart. I believe that I’m one of those trainers that can relay the message of the times of the Sugar Ray Leonards, even back, Archie Moore. It’s been passed down to me.”
