Errol Spence Aug. 21 Coney Island undercard coming together
Errol Spence Jr.’s upcoming title eliminator against Leonard Bundu on Aug. 21 in Coney Island on a PBC on NBC broadcast will have lots of local flavor on the undercard.
Brooklyn’s Heather Hardy (17-0, 4 knockouts) will face Shelly Vincent (18-0, 1 KO) to settle their long-time grudge match at the Ford Amphitheater at Coney Island Boardwalk in Brooklyn; also on the undercard are the undefeated prospects Julian Sosa (5-0-1, 2 KOs), who is a junior welterweight from Sunset Park; Far Rockaway’s Joseph Williams (9-0, 7 KOs) and Brooklyn’s Chordale Booker (2-0, 2 KOs).
Hardy and Shelly have been trash-talking the other since Hardy’s second fight; their featherweight bout will air on NBCSN and is the first female fight on a PBC show. Williams, a cruiserweight, was an alternate on the 2012 U.S. Olympic boxing team and is a three-time New York Golden Gloves champion and National Golden Gloves champion. Booker, a junior middleweight, won the 2015 Nationals and has separated himself because of his punching power.
