  • Comments Thread For: Jeremias Ponce Beats Down, Drops, Stops Lewis Ritson in Tenth

    Lewis Ritson will face Jeremias Ponce in a Final Eliminator for the IBF Super-Lightweight World Title at the Vertu Motors Arena, Newcastle on Saturday June 12, live on Sky Sports in the UK and on DAZN in the US and more than 200 countries and territories. (photos by Mark Robinson)

    ‘The Sandman’ won a controversial split decision against Miguel Vazquez behind closed doors at the East of England Arena in Peterborough last time out in October to claim the vacant WBA Intercontinental Super-Lightweight Title and improve his record to 21-1 (12 KOs).

    In his last fight in front of his Newcastle faithful, Ritson produced a career-best performance to beat bitter rival Robbie Davies Jr in an enthralling Fight of the Year candidate, and the 27-year-old says he can’t wait to get back in front of his fanatical support against undefeated Argentinian Ponce.

    The 24-year-old, from Buenos Aires, won the South American Title in 2019 by outpointing fellow Argentine Leonardo Amitrano, and became IBO Champion later that year with a points win in Berlin over Germany’s Rico Muller on his debut outside the Americas.

      50/50 fight imo, Ritson has never looked the same since Patera, he can clearly be out boxed and hasn't looked like the same kind of puncher at 140. This fight similar to Valenzuela/Davies to me. Honestly, a loss may be better long term for Ritson; Taylor or Matias kill him

        Controversial, huh? Technically accurate but probably underselling it, that decision was about as egregious as robberies get. It wasn't far off a shutout by Titere by any reasonable reckoning. Lewis just looked absolutely at a loss in there.

          And yet, I am trusting Ritson for a last time, placing a bet on a KO win for him in the second half.

                  Why is women's boxing so bad? They look like they took up the sport last week. Women's MMA high level this is utter trash
