Brian Ceballo on the brink of boxing’s big time after amateur disillusionment

Welterweight Brian Ceballo is not your typical boxer. He makes his debut for Ring City and wants to put his name in contention to fight boxing’s best. 

Every boxer has a unique backstory. Up-and-coming welterweight Brian Ceballo is no different.

Ceballo (11-0, 6 KOs) has the type of amateur and professional experience that leads to a world title, but his story has a bit of a twist. Despite compiling a 206-13 amateur record, Ceballo didn’t plan on boxing as his career.

Ceballo started boxing at eight years old, and as he got older and progressed, he proved to be a great talent. He won many fights, but around the age of 13 or 14, Ceballo learned an important life lesson. He told Boxingscene.com in 2019 that he got a big head during that time as a young amateur.

“Basically, when you’re doing so good, you’re on top of the world,”

After surviving a horrific car crash last October, undefeated welterweight champion Errol Spence Jr. is ready to climb between the ropes again. 

Spence (26-0, 21 KOs) will put his WBC and IBF world titles on the line Saturday night when he takes on Danny Garcia (36-2, 21 KOs) at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. He’s hoping 13 months of ring rust doesn’t get in the way of him furthering what has already been an excellent career.

One could have forgiven the 30-year-old if he opted for a tune-up fight in his first foray back into the ring after that single-car crash in Dallas, a collision that he escaped without serious injury and also resulted in a driving while intoxicated charge. He was ultimately sentenced to probation.

Instead, “The Truth” is getting right back into the mix by fighting Garcia, a former welterweight and junior welterweight world
