Cornelius "K9" Bundrage will return to the ring since losing his title to Ishe Smith earlier this summer. He will be facing Joey Hernandez in a IBF Title Eliminator. The winner will get to face Carlos Molina who defeated Ishe a few months ago on the Mayweather undercard. Goldenboy won the purse bid of only $11,000. K9 will earn 60% of that purse for a total of $6,600 while Joey will earn 40% which is $4,400. It's really shocking that the purse is so low because when K9 fought Ishe Smith they drew around 500,000 viewers.
K9 is not discouraged though. He states, "That purse bid is crazy, but this fight is more for the opportunity than the purse." K9 record stands at 32-5, 19KO's and Joey stands at 23-1, 13KO's. The fight will take place on Jan 24th at Fantasy Springs Resort in Indio, California as part of Goldenboy Live Fox Sports 1.
