Cameron Krael Fights on Mayweather Card at MGM Grand

By Fracisco Salazar

Welterweight Cameron Krael will face Michael Ogundo tonight at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

The fight will headline a seven-bout Mayweather Promotions card and will be streamed live on their Facebook page.

The fight card will take place two nights before the Manny Pacquiao-Adrien Broner welterweight bout, that will place at the same venue. Doors to the event, which is complimentary to fight fans who receive tickets at the MGM Grand box office, open at 5 p.m. local time.


Krael (14-13-3, 3 knockouts), a gatekeeper who resides in Las Vegas, defeated prospect Jose Miguel Borrego by majority decision in his last bout on Sept. 22.

In his previous fight on May 11, the 25-year-old Krael lost by split decision to fringe contender Erick Bone. The loss snapped a six-bout unbeaten streak.

Krael has faced the likes of welterweight contender Egidijus Kavaliauskas, Roberto Arriaza, and Jamal James.

Ogundo (15-10, 12 KOs), who resides in Nairobi, Kenya, lost a one-sided decision to Justin DeLoach on Nov. 3. He has lost three of his last four bouts.

In the co-feature, welterweight contender Layla McCarter will square off against Yamila Reynoso in a 10 round bout.

Like Krael, McCarter (42-13-5, 11 KOs) resides in Las Vegas. She last fought on June 16, winning a one-sided 10 round decision over Eva Bajic of Serbia.

The 39-year-old McCarter has not lost since April of 2007, having won her last 19 bouts. Amongst her recent streak of wins, McCarter won the WBA lightweight title on two occasions.

Reynoso (11-5-3, 8 KOs), who resides in Buenos Aires, lost to Amanda Serrano in her last bout on Sept. 8. Both were fighting for the vacant WBO junior welterweight title.

Reynoso has lost four of her last seven fights.

In an intriguing light heavyweight fight, Lanell Bellows (18-3-2, 11 KOs) will face Travis Reeves (16-3-2, 7 KOs) in a 10 round bout.

Unbeaten junior welterweight prospect Richardson Hitchins (6-0, 3 KOs) will square off against Tre’Sean Wiggins (10-3-1, 6 KOs) in an eight round bout.

Complimentary tickets, which have been available since Monday at the MGM Grand box office, are limited and will be distributed based on availability with a limit of four per person on a first-come, first-serve basis.
