Korobov-Edwards on December 7th in Atlantic City

New Arizona resident Derek "The Black Lion" Edwards (26-2-1) returns to the ring on December 7 in Atlantic City versus undefeated Matt  Korobov (21-0 with 12 knockouts) in a scheduled for 8 round bout held at the Boardwalk Hall.  Derek hails from North Carolina, but pulled up stakes and moved to the Cactus state after splitting with his previous management  He now trains at Hard Knocks Gym in Phoenix under the guidance of Clement Vierra, head trainer and gym owner.

There is some talk, Edwards (26-2) may get sparring help from former IBF/NABF Super Middleweight Champion Jesus "El Martillo" Gonzales, nothing official. Gonzales is a southpaw and so is Korobov. Edwards turns 34 on December 5.

Korobov is a Top Rank fighter from Russia who represented his native country in the 2008 Olympics. His impressive resume includes winning multiple gold medals in several world competitions and the 30 year old won more than 200 amateur bouts before turning professional in 2008.

I look forward to seeing him again.....he could make some noise in the division. He was a prospect at the time Jacobs, Guerrero, and he were being mentioned as the future of the division. Times have changed but we will…

[QUOTE=badnewsbrown;13939786]Yeah Korobov looked like a real good prospect coming up. Don't know what happen to him.[/QUOTE] I think he had manager/personal issues.. He's been active in 2013, so I'm being led to believe he's going to fight some top guys…

What is Korobov playing at? I thought he would've fought a decent contender years ago...
