Photos: J’Leon Love vs. Chris Pearson Sparring in Vegas

By Chris Robinson

Step inside of the Mayweather Boxing Club in Las Vegas on any given day and you will see your share of prospects eyeing their next move.


 
During a recent swing through the gym, I caught some action between two undefeated hopefuls in middleweight prospect J’Leon Love (14-0, 8 KO’s) and junior middleweight prospect Chris Pearson (7-0, 6 KO’s).


 
Sparring four-minute rounds, the action was tactical with some spirited exchanges mixed in.


 
Pearson is getting ready for a February 2nd showcase at the nearby Cosmopolitan Hotel while Love returns on February 23rd in Detroit, Michigan against former WBO junior middleweight champion Bronco McKart in a Showtime-televised attraction.

Still not sold on Love. Wasn't too impressed last I saw him. He boxed well, but nothing elite jumped out about him to me. He's still green though. Maybe he'll make a believer out of me.
