The winner will be back in the mix and in route for a World Title shot. Each fighter promises to stop the other. Even the promoters of each fighter are squaring off as Jeff Gibson, Castillo's promoter, issues a public wager to Luis DeCubas, Oquendo's promoter; the promoter of the losing fighter has to shave his head! We still have to hear if DeCubas accepts the wager.
The co-feature offers just as much excitement; Promter Jeff Gibson predicts a knockout to be inevitable as Eromosele Albert 20-1 squares off against Daniel "The Hatian Sensation" Edouard 18-1-2 for ten rounds of action. "Neither fighter gives an inch, both possess knockout power, and each fighter will throw punches nonstop, said Gibson. So someone has to go before ten rounds or we're going to have the fight of the year on our hands." Two jr. middleweights in route for a world title shot, and neither have plans of allowing anyone to hold them back!
Recently added to the card is a blockbuster sellout of it's own, as two local hot up and coming fighters accept the challenge; Ed Paredes 12-1 takes on Antoine Smith 4-1 in a welterweight matchup that promises to take second stage to neither the main event or the co-main!
Why is this show selling out so fast? Other than being an ESPN Friday Night series it is packet with talent, as well as hosting the "ELITE KNOCKOUT GIRLS" 2008 Calendar Contest.
The Mahi Shrine Temple in Miami will be a packed house on july 20th.
