Blair Cobbs Excited About
Ring Return June 19 In El Paso
One of the most exciting welterweights in all of boxing
returns on June 19, 2021, when Blair “The Flair” Cobbs
(14-0-1, 9 KOs), battles decorated amateur and veteran of
the sport, Brad Solomon (29-3, 9 KOs). The ten-round bout,
taking place at the University of Texas at El Paso’s Don
Haskins Center, will air live on DAZN as the first televised
fight on the Jaime Munguia vs. Maciej Sulecki card.
"I haven't fought in over a year and it is time for the most
electrifying man in all of boxing to give the fans a show,"
said Cobbs in-between rounds at his new home, Wild Card
Boxing Gym in Hollywood, California. "I wanted a tough
opponent, and Brad Solomon is just that. His losses have
only been to really good fighters and he has over twice the
experience as me as a professional, so I am ready to show
the world who I am! It’s time for the Wooo man to get busy.”
"Blair is nearing the point to fight some of the
world-ranked fighters, the fans love him, he has a great
style, and he is a talented fighter," said Cobb’s manager,
Greg Hannley, CEO of Prince Ranch Boxing. "We're expecting a
lot from Blair, and I see him in a big fight amongst one of
Golden Boy Promotions best fighters by the end of the year,
that is the goal for Blair."
Cobbs last fought on Valentine's day weekend of 2020,
winning a split decision over Samuel Kotey Neequaye. Cobbs
has been out of the ring for a year-plus and has made
changes to his team that he feels will help him moving
forward in his career.
"I made a decision to move to Hollywood and train with
Freddie Roach at the Wild Card Boxing Gym, because I needed
a change," said Cobbs. "Being in the gym with Freddie every
day and seeing all the great fighters and new faces has me
excited all over again. I really want to make my legacy
known as one of the top guys in the sport."
