Hustle Boss was on hand inside of the MGM Grand Garden Arena’s Media Tent on Thursday, June 18, as Canada’s Phil Lo Greco took the dais.

While it’s not surprising to see Lo Greco around boxing circles, those in the fight game were caught off guard when they found out that the rugged Italian will be stepping in for Roberto Garcia to face off with undefeated upstart Errol Spence Jr. (16-0, 13 KO’s) on Saturday night from the MGM Grand as part of a “Premier Boxing Champions” telecast on NBC.

Lo Greco is a willing combatant, with his only defeat coming to Shawn Porter a few weeks back. Porter faces off with Adrien Broner in the main event on Saturday night, as surely the Spence-Lo Greco winner could be in line for a big fight once the dust has settled.
