Maurice Hooker Talks – Super lightweight Maurice Hooker (21-0-2) is defending his WBO NABO 140 pound title against the challenge of Darlys Perez (33-2-1) this Saturday at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas as one of the support fights on HBO’s Kovalev vs Ward pay-per-view.

Earlier this week, Hooker joined up with 2x Olympic Gold Medalist Claressa Shields for an open workout and media session at the Never Quit Boxing Gym in Las Vegas. Shield will be making her pro boxing debut on Saturday as well.

The soft-spoken Hooker is a Dallas native and he generally leaves his talking to the ring. He has 16 stoppage wins in his 23 fights and he is coming off two straight first round knock outs to earn this spot. Because he is quiet, this Boxing Channel exclusive is a good chance to meet Maurice Hooker prior to his Saturday fight. Enjoy.
