Rarely in sports are athletes afforded the opportunity to take their critics to task on the field of battle.After receiving some words of advice following his appearances on ShoBox: The New Generation, unbeaten Lateef Kayode felt slighted by IBO Cruiserweight Champion and SHOWTIME Analyst Antonio Tarver. This Saturday, June 2, Tarver and Kayode will settle the score in the ring. Take a sneak peek at Saturday’s in-show feature segment to witness what transpired leading up to this compelling matchup of teacher vs. student.
The June 2 edition of SHOWTIME CHAMPIONSHIP BOXING will feature two of the most renowned fighters of this era – Antonio Tarver and “Winky” Wright – putting their reputations on the line in separate bouts when they take on two of the sport’s most promising up-and-comers – Lateef Kayode and Peter Quillin.
The four fighters recently met in Los Angeles and delivered a highly spirited press conference to kick off the promotion for “Four Warned” – the rare, four-fight premium television card that will also feature two world championship fights when Austin Trout defends his WBA super welterweight title against the rugged Delvin Rodriguez and Vusi Malinga battles Leo Santa Cruz for the vacant IBF Bantamweight belt.
