Photos/Weights: ShoBox Fighters Nearly Trade Punches

The fighters who’ll compete in the co-feature tomorrow/Nov. 16, on ShoBox: The New Generation live on SHOWTIME® (11 p.m. ET/PT, delayed on the West Coast) from Gulfstream Park in Hallandale Beach, Fla., had to be separated by their camps after a mini-melee broke out Thursday during the weigh-in. Photos by Tom Casino/Showtime.

The fracas between super welterweights Joey “Twinkle Fingers” Hernandez (22-1-1, 13 KOs), of Miami (pictured at the left), and James “Shotgun” Winchester (15-5, 5 KOs), of Greensboro, N.C., came after Hernandez shoved Winchester before they were to pose for cameras after they both weighed in.

Their 10-round clash, which will open the telecast, was just added to the televised portion of the event late Wednesday.

No one enjoyed the commotion more than Hall of Fame promoter, Don King.

Both fighters made weight; Hernandez tipped the scale at 156 pounds, Winchester 155¾.

Undefeated lightweights Angelo “La Cobra” Santana (13-0, 10 KOs), of Miami, Fla., and Johnny Garcia (13-0, 8 KOs), of Holland, Mich., collide in the ShoBox main event.

Garcia made the contracted weight (135 pounds) easily, coming in at 133¾ pounds. Santana came in 1¾ pounds overweight, however, and had two hours to shed the excess poundage.

Tickets priced at $25, $50, $100 and $200 are on sale and can be purchased online at www.gulfstreampark.com or by calling the Gulfstream Park box office at (954) 457-6201.
