Is Michael Nunn going to fight tonight?
Probably. But at this point, Nunn's handlers still want to weigh their options, not to mention their opponent.
Tonight's fight card at the Forum, scheduled to begin at 6:30, has undergone more changes than the tax reform bill. First Nunn (15-0, 11 knockouts) had to wait several weeks before his opponent was even named.
Last week, Nunn, a middleweight fighting out of the Ten Goose Boxing Club of North Hollywood, learned he'd be facing Ramon Perez (19-4, 15 knockouts) on a card that also featured super middleweights Lindell Holmes (30-4, 29 knockouts) and Randy Smith (15-6, 12 knockouts).
Over the weekend, Holmes dropped out and Nunn was asked to fight Smith. Fine, said Dan Goossen, Nunn's manager, figuring his fighter would be going at 160 pounds, the maximum, unless otherwise agreed upon, for middleweights.
