New Opponent for Nakash

Lou Del Valle, Ran Nakash's original opponent for July 14 at The Arena in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, has backed out. Instead of the middle aged former champion, Nakash is scheduled to take on Victor Barragan.

Barragan (11-5, 3 KOs) is a 28-year old American cruiserweight. He is better than his record indicates. In Barragan's five losses, his opponents entered the ring with a combined total of four defeats. BoxRec has rated Barragan as the 11th best cruiserweight from the United States. His last bout was a narrow 10-round unanimous decision loss to Nicholas Iannuzzi this past March.

Nakash (24-0, 18 KOs) looks to keep his undefeated record in tack in his fourth fight of 2010. For a change, Nakash will not have to look up at his opponent. Barragan is listed at 5'10", the same height as Nakash is listed. The match is scheduled for 10 rounds.
