With the super middleweight division one of the most open of any in boxing, there is always an opportunity for a new fighter to come along, win a title and look to unify the division and make an impact. When Syd Vanderpool faces Jeff Lacy for the vacant IBF title on October 2 as part of Gary Shaw's tripleheader in the new outdoor Amphitheatre at Caesars Palace in the Las Vegas on Showtime, both men know how important winning the world championship is to their future career's.
"The only thing I can say is it is going to be a great fight," said Lacy, during a media conference call on Thursday. "Whatever happens, if I see the knockout comes, if it is the first round or the 12th, I am going to go for it. Until then, it is just going to be a great fight. I am coming to win."
"I just have to agree with him," said Vanderpool. "It is going to be an explosive fight. There are going to be some explosions going on in the ring and one man is going to be standing with his hand raised at the end and that is all that matters."
