San Jose’s Andy “El Tiburon” Vences (16-0, 10 KO) -- nicknamed after his city’s NHL squad -- goes hunting for his biggest prey yet, taking on Casey Ramos (23-0, 6 KO) for the vacant WBA Continental Americas super featherweight title. The two undefeated prospects go head to head in Las Vegas on Friday, Nov. 4, headlining the “Solo Boxeo” card on UniMas.
"This is the fight I've been waiting for -- a title fight with and undefeated fighter," Vences told CSNBayArea.com. "I've trained like never before."
Since inking a deal with boxing giant Top Rank Promotions in 2015, Vences is 4-0, finishing two of those fights by knockout. With seven more professional fights under his belt, Ramos is the more experienced fighter, but he packs less power having stopped only one of his last seven opponents.
ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- A person with knowledge of the situation tells The Associated Press that Broncos running back C.J. Anderson will undergo arthroscopic surgery on his right knee Thursday and that the extent of the damage will determine how long he's out.
The person spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity because the team hasn't addressed specifics of Anderson's knee injury while awaiting medical reports.
Earlier Thursday, Anderson disputed a report that he had told people close to him that he was done for the season.
Anderson was injured on an 11-yard run Monday night against Houston but returned to the game and ran 14 more times for 84 yards and a TD, finishing with 107 yards in his best performance of the season.
