Chicago, IL, Tuesday, May 21, 2013–WBA Latin American Heavyweight Champion “Fast” Fres Oqendo (35-7, 23 KOs) will defend his title as well as vie for the vacant NABA Heavyweight belt against Derric Rossy (28-6, 14 KOs) during the 10 round main event at “Fight Night at the Horseshoe” on Saturday, June 8, at 7:30 PM at the The Venue inside of Hammond, Indiana’s Horseshoe Casino. Dynamic super middleweight Mike “Hollywood” Jimenez (10-0, 7 KOs) and equally exciting lightweight Frankie “Time Bomb” Scalise (6-1, 6 KO’s) are the co-features for the evening.

“Fres is working hard to defend his WBA Latin American title and hopes to pick up the NABA belt,” said Hitz. “As he waits for his shot at the world title, a strong opponent like Derric Rossy will prove to be a worthy test.”
