By Derek Bonnett Premier Boxing Champions on Bounce featured two world championship bouts at the Huntington Center in Toledo, Ohio, USA.

Berchelt Upsets Vargas for Title Berchelt Upsets Vargas for Title
By Derek Bonnett Every now and then a boxer emerges who seemingly puts his well-being aside for the benefit of the fans.
