This Saturday, January 23rd, the Staples Center in Los Angeles hosts the Premier Boxing Champion series with a full night of boxing that sees the main events air on FOX in the United States.
The main event features high-level welterweight action as Danny Garcia (31-0) faces Robert Guerrero (33-3-1), and the live card features 10 fights in all.
One of the fighters with a spot reserved on the card is Canadian Welterweight Phil Lo Greco (27-2) who is slated for an eight round bout and is still waiting for an opponent to be finalized.
LoGreco is ten year professional that came up in Canada's strong pugilistic scene. In his youth, he was on amateur National teams and he has been around boxing since he was very young.
Lo Greco's early career was hampered by inactivity and lackluster management. In May of 2013 after taking his first career loss after going the distance with Shawn Porter, Lo Greco effectively retired.
Lo Greco returned, going (2-1) in three fights during 2015. The lone loss was to Errol Spence Jr, and it was a good test and a learning experience for Lo Greco.
For the fighter known as “The Italian Sensation”, the time is now. At 31 years old, Lo Greco feels his best boxing is ahead of him and he credits the steady work and activity with helping him get to the next level. When asked what his plans are for 2016, the soft-spoken Canadian Italian said simply “I want to fight the best”.
