Cobbs, who is also advised by Shahid Malik of 2930, is coming off two impressive wins. In his last bout, he scored a sixth-round KO against Robert Redmond Jr (7-2-2, 6 KOs), and before that he soundly defeated former undefeated prospect, Ferdinand Kerobyan (11-1, 6 KOs), giving him his first loss as a professional. Cobbs is excited about facing another undefeated fighter and plans to end his unbeaten streak.
“Everyone knows I’ll fight anyone they put in front of me,” said Cobbs to the media, who is known for being charismatic in the ring. “I’m looking forward to this fight with Villalobos, who is also undefeated. These are the type of fights where the cream rises to the top, and I won’t be left behind. I’m Blair “Anytime-Anywhere-The-Flair” Cobbs. Whoooo!”
“Blair Cobbs is on fire right now, and he wants to show the world that he belongs with the best welterweights in the world.” said manager Greg Hannley of Prince Ranch Boxing. “A win against another undefeated fighter like Villalobos will surely be a statement victory. Look for Blair to shine on August 22nd.”
