J'Leon Love To Face Bronco McKart on Feb. 23rd

By Ryan Burton

BoxingScene.com has been advised that a fight between J'Leon Love (14-0) and former champion Bronco McKart (54-10) has nearly been finalized. The fight will take place on February 23rd and will be televised by Showtime from the Masonic Temnple in Detroit, MI.

Devon Alexander defends his IBF welterweight title against Kell Brook in the main event and Detroit native Cornelius "K9" Bundrage will put his IBF junior middleweight title at stake against Ishe Smith in the co-main event.

Love versus McKart will be an interesting battle of youth versus experience and also is a local rivalry.  Love hails from Detroit and McKart from nearby which Monroe which should provide a big boost to the gate.
