I remember hearing good things about lightweight prospect Dustin Arnold a few years back from one of my friends in the South Florida area and made a point to link up with him recently when he was out in Las Vegas.

Arnold was in town this past week with his trainer, former amateur fighter Jeff Poritz, in search of some work ahead of his Aug. 5 return to the ring in Tampa, Fl. and I was able to follow him a few days and get a sense of how serious he is towards his craft.

On Saturday, June 24, Las Vegas’ Jeremy “J Flash” Nichols will step back into the ring when he faces off with fellow unbeaten Peter Dobson inside of the Freedom Hall in Lousiville, Kent.

Nichols (7-0-1, 2 KO’s) and Dobson (8-0, 5 KO’s) will meet in a welterweight attraction over 8 rounds and there is plenty of work being put in from Nichols’ part in Las Vegas. We swung through Johnny Tocco’s Ringside Gym recently and caught up with the welterweight prospect.

Earlier this month, inside of Johnny Tocco’s Ringside Gym in Las Vegas, Nev., undefeated super middleweight prospect Caleb “Sweet Hands” Plant (14-0, 10 KO’s) and once-beaten super middleweight Sena Agbeko (15-1, 15 KO’s) visited the gym to get in some sparring ahead of their respective bouts.

Plant fights on Feb. 25 inside of the Legacy Arena in Birmingham, Al., against Ghana’s Thomas Awimbono (25-6-1, 21 KO’s) on the same card that WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder faces off with contender Gerald Washington. The following month, on March 17, Agbeko returns against journeyman Rashad Jones in Nashville, Tennessee.
