Review: 2014-10-18, pretty good finish between Edner Cherry and Osumanu Akaba but it is not enough to get three stars. Edner Cherry entered this fight with a pro boxing record of 32-6-2 (17 knockouts) and he is ranked as the No.24 lightweight in the world, he suffered his last loss in 2008 when he faced then-undefeated Timothy Bradley in a fight valid for the Wbc light-Ww title; since then he has collected eight wins and one no-contest.
His opponent, Osumanu Akaba, has a record of 31-6-1 (24 KOs=77%) and he replaces Jerry Belmontes; Akaba has fought once in 2014 losing to Bahodir Mamadjonov. Cherry vs Akaba is on the undercard of Steve Cunningham vs Natu Visinia. Watch the video and rate this fight!
