His opponent sports a record of 37-1-1 with twenty-four knockouts. The bout will be nationally televised by ESPN, the Worldwide Leader in Sports.
The January 25th event will also have a co-feature. Tony "Lightning" Louis will take on Milky "Silky Smooth" Gonzalez in a welterweight bout. Louis has a perfect 15-0 career record, including seven knockouts. He hails from Cornwall, Ontario. Gonzalez, who is from Cleveland, Ohio, has a 20-3 career record with fifteen knockouts.
