Former world title holder Steve Forbes will fight Emmanuel Lartey in a scheduled 10 round bout on Saturday, June 7th.

The bout will headline a "Battle at the Boat 96" card at the Emerald Queen Casino in Tacoma, WA. Brian Halquist Productions will promote the card.

Marvin Cordova, Jr. was originally listed as Forbes' opponent on Boxrec.com. Rick Glaser, who is the matchmaker for Brian Halquist, confirmed Lartey will face Forbes.

Forbes (35-12, 11 KOs) has not fought since a questionable 10 round majority decision loss to Johan Perez in January of last year. He has lost his last four bouts in a row and seven of his last nine bouts.

The Ghanian-born Lartey (15-2-1, 7 KOs) has lost his last two bouts in a row after going through his first 16 bouts unbeaten. He lost an eight round split decision to Felix Diaz on April 18th.

Glaser said a number of four round bouts will round out the card.
