Gallimore seeks bounce back win against Teixeira tonight
Super welterweight/middleweight Nathaniel “No Problem” Gallimore will face Golden Boy Promotions prospect Patrick Teixeira on tonight’s card from Fantasy Springs, Ca in Indio, Ca, broadcast on Facebook Watch.
Gallimore, a vocal fighter, who I first got to know through his trash-talking antics when he fought Julian “J-Rock” Williams, is a fighter no one is eager to face. Gallimore, reminds me of another Jamaican boxer, Glen Johnson, as the majority of his career is spent facing fighters on their terms and giving them hard fights.
Patrick Teixeira, on the other hand, is a walking question mark. He is a talented fighter and has graduated from the club show scene, but has yet to prove he can compete at the world level as Curtis Stevens brutally knocked him out on the Canelo Alvarez vs. Amir Khan pay-per-view.
This is Teixeira’s second chance to prove he is an a-side fighter, but Gallimore is eager to away this opportunity as well.
The fight which largely has flown under the radar could be the best fight of the weekend as it pits two fighters together who need a win.
The two will do battle tonight, Saturday, September 1st, at 6 PM PST/ 9 PM PST on Golden Boy’s Facebook Watch page, live from the Fantasy Springs Casino and Resort in Indio, Ca
