Liakhovich-Jennings, Adamek Added To Judah-Paris

The White Wolf, Sergei Liakhovich will take on Philadelphia's hot Bryant Jennings in a 10-round co-feature, while heavyweight Tomasz Adamek makes his first ring appearance since facing Heavyweight King Vitali Klitschko on Saturday, March 24th  when the NBC Sports Network's "Fight Night" boxing series comes to Brooklyn's Aviator Sports Complex.  In the main event of the evening,  Brooklyn's Zab Judah takes on unbeaten Junior Welterweight Vernon Paris in a mandated fight for the #1 position in the IBF.

Jennings, 12-0, 5 KO's, who made an enormous hit with the NBC Sports Network audience, last month, when he stepped into the main event on just five days' notice on the inaugural "Fight Night" broadcast and captured the Pennsylvania Heavyweight Title in an exciting 12-round brawl with Maurice Byarm, will face one of the big men who he replaced that night.    Liakhovich, 25-4, 16 KO's, caught a tough break just a few days earlier when no suitable opponent could be found to replace top contender Eddie Chambers on short notice when he suffered two broken ribs in sparring and had to withdraw.  Always ready to do battle in the ring, Liakhovich was anxious to get back on the fight calendar as soon as possible.

Liakhovich, "I am glad to be fighting on NBC Sports Network. I look forward to my fight with Jennings. I like fighting guys who appreciate a challenge like me. I am in great shape and can't wait to get back in the ring."

Russell Peltz of Peltz Boxing said that Jennings was eager to get back in the ring, "We feel we should strike while the iron is hot. Why go backwards after the win over Byarm?"
 
A former World Light Heavyweight, Cruiserweight and IBF International Heavyweight champion, Adamek, 44-2, 28 KO's, is equally anxious to begin his climb back up to the top of the heavyweight rankings with his first ever appearance in Brooklyn.   A suitable opponent is being sought and his name will be released shortly.
 
"This show is shaping up to be quite extraordinary," promoter Kathy Duva said.  "There will be excitement from start to finish and I'm sure that every boxing fan who can't get a ticket won't want to miss the broadcast on the NBC Sports Network."

Gary Quinn, Sr. Director of Programming & Acquisitions NBC Sports Group added, "We are pleased with the high caliber of the March 24th card from top to bottom.  We are building on the positive momentum we established with our January 21 show. Fans will be able to tune in for another fantastic night of boxing March 24th on NBC Sports Network Fight Night."

All 3 fights will be televised for free on NBC and I agree it's a better card then most HBO and SHO fights.
