night of action. The Light Heavyweight division always produces good
fights, whether it is on a World or Domestic scale.

hard to pick who is going to win. The last Ultimate Boxxer sprang a
surprise and it the second one could too. It’s anyone’s to win and
it’s going to be a fantastic night in and out of the ring.”
