Eventually, the penny dropped. Now fully committed to his job, the 33-year-old has put together a string of impressive results to finally reach the summit. It helped when former IBF champion Randy Caballero failed to make weight, thereby handing over the title on the scales rather than in the ring. However, that should not detract from Haskins’ late-career flourish. Before contemplating potential unification fightswith fellow Englishman Jamie McDonnell, the WBA champion, an obvious targetHaskins first has to deal with Hall.

Escobar completed his probation in 2009 and now hopes to bring changes to the city of Escobares, which has only had one mayor in Noel Escobar since it was incorporated in 2005. The younger Escobar hopes to challenge the 81-year old mayor and bring change. Some of the problems he sees are the damaged roads and the high volume of traffic tickets that are issued there. If you go 56 on a 55, theyll give you ticket of $250, so its outrageous the way hes handling the city right now, he said. However, Mayor Escobar said the police department was just doing their job.
