Danny O’Connor expected to gain revenge over Gabriel Bracero on Saturday, and for a number of good reasons.
Danny O’Connor was at a low point in his career following his split-decision loss to journeyman Vivian Harris two years ago. “I remember back at my hotel thinking, ‘Where do I go from here?,’” recalls O’Connor, whose October 2013 loss to the fading former champ ended a nine-fight winning streak.
When Danny O’Connor slipped through the ropes for the biggest fight of his life—a nationally televised clash of unbeatens against Gabriel Bracero in April 2011—he knew he was fully prepared. Except he wasn’t—at least not mentally.
Boston-area favorite Danny O’Connor will look to get even for one of the two losses in his career with a long-awaited rematch of his 2011 bout against Gabriel Bracero on NBCSN at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT October 10 in front of a favorable crowd at Lowell Memorial Auditorium in Lowell, Massachusetts.
