Joel Julio-Anges Adjaho Clash is Set For May 20, FNF

Main Events CEO, Kathy Duva, today officially announced a new opponent for Joel Julio's May 20th welterweight bout. Julio (36-4, 31KOs) will take on Anges Adjaho, of Cotonou, Benin (Africa), 17-5, 9KO's.  Antwone Smith was forced to withdraw from his fight against Joel Julio because of an elbow injury.
