Joseph Elegele entered Sunday’s 150-pound fight with Phil Lo Greco possessing a decided power advantage, and promised to show as much when the two men got in the ring.
As 31-year-olds in a 147-pound weight class stacked with young talent, Phil Lo Greco and Joseph Elegele are trying to remain relevant while realizing that time is of the essence.
Unbeaten 154-pound prospect Erickson Lubin has flattened 10 of the 14 opponents he’s faced since turning pro shortly after his 18th birthday, so “The Hammer” knows a thing or two about concussive power. And he knows stablemate and fellow southpaw Joseph Elegele possesses it in spades.
Phil Lo Greco was unbeaten through 25 fights and seemed like he was on his way to a possible title shot, but one loss nearly ended his boxing career.
By the end of 2012, Phil Lo Greco was 25-0 and seemingly on the verge of making the leap to title contender. Since then, the Toronto native has struggled to build a winning streak—something he intends to change next month.
