Ray Olivera

No one ever went to the concession stand during a Ray Olivera fight. He was known as "Sucra", but perhaps his middle name should have been "Action". There was never a dull moment in an Olivera fight. He set a record in a bout with Zack Padilla when Compubox recorded over 1,000 punches between the 2 boxers. That was one of many fights in Connecticut for the New Bedford, Mass native. Olivera had a 15-year professional career in the ring with notable victories over Vince Phillips, Vivian Harris, Tracy Spann, and twice over Charles Murray. The first win over Murray gave Ray the NABF Super Lightweight Title. The second win over Spann gave Olivera the IBF Intercontinental Super Lightweight Title. Olivera had never been stopped prior to his defeat to Ricky Hatton in a WBU Light Welterweight Title challenge in 2004. Olivera finbished his career with a 47-11-2 record, certainly worthy of induction into the CBHOF!
