Sinakin Returns in March

Benny Sinakin is scheduled to return to the ring on March 7 at Bally's  in Atlantic City, New Jersey. The light heavyweight is slated to battle Francisco Ariri Neto in a four round affair.

Siankin (5-0, 3 KOs) has fought all of his pro bouts in his hometown of Philadelphia. The Jewish Bulldog fought four times in the sixth months he turned pro, but his career has slowed a bit since. Sinakin earned his fifth victory after a six month layoff. When March 7 rolls around, it will be five months since his third round TKO victory over Ferris Golden.

Neto is a month away from becoming a quadragenarian and cannot boast of a decent record. The Brazilian-born Massachusetts-resident is 1-8. His one win was a TKO victory almost a year ago, but seven of his eight losses we by knockout. In six of those losses, Neto didn't even last a round, including his last five fights.

Neto has a 17-year age disadvantage and a three and half inch height disadvantage against Sinakin. Neto has been as light as super middleweight and as heavy as cruiserweight. Two fights ago, Neto gave up 60 pounds to his opponent, Justin Rolfe. While Neto will certainly suffer from a talent deficit against Sinakin, the weight disparity won't be as unfair.
