Carlos Rivera Vs Johnnie Edwards; Undefeated Knockout Artist Keith Thurman Headline “Fight Night” at A La Carte Event Pavilion February 13!
Thurman Looks For 9th Consecutive First Round Knockout!
For Immediate Release
Tampa, Florida - On February 13, Featherweight prospect Carlos Rivera 14-3-2 (5 KO’s) will take a step up in competition as he will battle Johnnie “Lumberjack” Edwards 14-3-1 (8 KO’s) in the main event of Star Fight Productions’ “Fight Night” at the A La Carte Event Pavilion. Edwards, who has two wins over former world champion Freddie Norwood, is coming off a disputed majority decision loss to hot prospect Ty Barnett in November. Rivera is riding a wave of momentum as he is unbeaten in his last six trips to the squared circle. The Rivera-Edwards contest is scheduled for eight rounds.
Topping the undercard is 2008 Olympic Trials Silver Medalist Keith Thurman 8-0 (8 KO’s). Thurman will take on battle tested veteran Thomas Davis 12-9-2 (8 KO’s) in a six round Welterweight affair. Davis, who stopped WBO Junior Welterweight Champion Kendall Holt in 2004, will attempt to push Thurman into the second round for the first time in his professional career.
Also on the card will be undefeated Middleweight prospect Ahsandi Gibbs 9-0 (3 KO’s) vs Omar Bell 6-1 (4 KO’s) over six rounds. Bell is the brother of former undisputed Cruiserweight kingpin O’Neil Bell. Heavyweight Jason Barnett 10-8 (4 KO’s) will battle Moises Droz 13-6 (10 KO’s) in a six round rematch of their 2007 contest, which Barnett won by majority decision.
Light Heavyweight Adam Hubinger 11-0 (10 KO’s) will return to the ring following a 3 ½ year layoff to challenge Terrance Smith 5-9-2 (3 KO’s) in a 6 rounder. Smith’s record serves him no justice as he has tangled with many prospects and contenders. Dillet Frederick 5-2-3 (2 KO’s) will take on Laquel Fleming 1-1-2 over four at Welterweight. Rounding out the card is a four round featherweight contest between Charlie Serrano 6-2 (2 KO’s) and Adrian Perez 4-1-1 (1 KO).
