Undefeated light heavyweight prospect Steve Nelson (8-0) returns to action this Saturday night as one of the warm-up fights on Top Rank’s big boxing card set to air on ESPN. Nelson will be facing Cesar Ruiz (5-5) in a six round bout in support of TR’s main event featuring Terence Crawford versus Julius Indongo.
The hard working Nebraska native has been getting his ring time in. We last saw him on Crawford’s May 20th undercard at Madison Square Garden when Nelson defeated Gilberto Rubio. Since then, the rugged Nelson has gone 1-0, getting a match under his belt in July as a tune-up for this higher profile appearance.
