Barthelemy vs. Sakkreerin 6/21 Undercard is Announced

A total of eight big fights are scheduled in support of the 12-round main event featuring Cuba's IBF #2-rated Rances "Kid Blast" Barthelemy (18-0, 11 KO) taking on Thailand's IBF #5-rated Fahsai "Mountain Boy" Sakkreerin (39-3-1, 21 KO) and the explosive, 10-round middleweight co-main between local hero "Golden" Caleb Truax (21-1-1, 12 KO) of Osseo, Minnesota, and Chicago's Don "Da Bomb" George (24-3-2, 21 KO).

Tickets to Friday Night Fights at the Convention Center start at $35 and can be purchased through www.sofights.com .

An eight-round crosstown battle will highlight the night's undercard, as St Paul's Jeremy "Lights Out" McLaurin (10-5, 5 KOs) will face St Paul's Tony "2Sharp" Lee (7-1, 3 KOs) for the vacant Minnesota State Lightweight Championship.

Local bragging rights will be on the line for these two local scrappers, so expect fireworks. McLaurin has been in with the better opposition in his career, while Lee has fewer losses.

IBF has no shame at all. Rancid got his ass handed to him by Arash Usmanee and they rank Rancid #2. Pathetic.
