Barry Tompkins and Steve Farhood are in the house at the Fantasy Springs Casino in Indio, California for tonight's ShoBox main event. It's a rematch between Cornelius "K9" Bundrage and the man he beat two summers ago, former world champion Cory Spinks.

Spinks comes to the ring first as the challenger for the IBF junior middleweight belt that once belonged to him. He is 39-6 with 11 KOs, and he has said himself that this may be his last hurrah. Spinks has two wins under his belt since his loss to Bundrage.

Speaking of K9, he makes his ring walk sporting a 31-4 pro record. Like Spinks, he has not fought often over the past few years. He's been inactive since June 25 of last year, when he defeated Sechew Powell.

Jake Gutierrez makes the formal introductions of both fighters. We're all set for 12 scheduled round of boxing for the IBF junior middleweight title.


Round 1

Bundrage looks dry as he begins this one. Spinks comes out with the higher work rate, popping some right hands. Bundrage lands two of his own rights and a stiff jab. K9 swings for the fences and just misses a big right. Those punches slowed down Spinks a bit. Bundrage mugs Spinks with close range shots whilethey grapple. Spinks lifts Bundrage off the mat in a clinch, which draws a reaction from the fans. K9 looks like he is getting away with holding and hitting. A mean right hand lands for Bundrage, and Spinks goes down on his butt. Cory beats the count, but that looks like it knocked him for a loop. They wrestle a bit and both end up on the mat.

Tylwalk: 10-8 Bundrage
