News and notes of the week

On Friday night, Uppercut Promotions put on a card in front of a sold-out crowd in Sacramento, that saw the main event middleweight bout between Anthony Hernandez and Kenny Lopez Jr., get canceled as Hernandez called in the day of the fight to report that he was sick and unable to fight. 

With this news, middleweight undefeated Joeshon James headlined the card defeating pro debuter Bryan Martinez via a four-round decision. James, a guest on my podcast this week, has a high upside as a prospect but has to be moved and built correctly, from reports I read, the fight was physical. James won all four rounds on the cards.
