Venue Announced for Shawn Michael Sarembock's Fight

Junior middleweight Shawn Michael Sarembock (8-0, 8 KO) is scheduled to fight on Friday, February 17 in Tijuana, Baja California, Mexico. That isn't news to fans of The Jewish Boxing Blog, but Shawn has now announced a venue for the fight on his Instagram page. Though this will be his ninth time fighting in Tijuana, it'll be his first time fighting at the Grand Hotel Tijuana. His last four bouts were at Big Punch Arena.

"I love fighting in Tijuana," Shawn told The JBB recently. "The crowd is amazing. They're very respectful. I have nothing but good things to say about fighting in Mexico," Shawn said. "Except cutting weight there."

When The JBB interviewed Shawn in October, he was getting ready for a December fight. That got pushed back to January, which then became February. The delays are an unfortunately common reality for up-and-coming boxers. Sarembock, who turned pro in 2019, last fought in March.

After Shawn announced the venue, former WBA junior middleweight world champion Rabbi Yuri Foreman voiced his support for the 32 year old Arizona resident. More information on this fight as it becomes available.
