Sullivan Barrera-Lee Campbell Set, Jeff Lacy is Out

Wilkes-Barre, PA:    Before NBCSN Fight Night viewers at the Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs are treated to the IBF Light Heavyweight Title Eliminator between Anatoliy "The Gladiator" Dudchenko (19-2, 13 KOs) and Nadjib Mohammedi (34-3, 20 KOs) and the "Fight for Philadelphia Bragging Rights" between Karl "Dynamite" Dargan (15-0, 7 KOs) and Anthony Flores (11-4-1, 6 KOs), the live audience will be treated to a stacked undercard filled with exciting fights and hot prospects.  The doors at Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs will open at 5:00 PM for this unbelievable event. 
Hot Cuban light heavyweight prospect Sullivan Barrera (11-0, 6 KOs), who dazzled audiences at the Liacouras Center in Philadelphia, PA with his six-round unanimous decision victory over Larry Pryor on April 4, will face off against Lee "The Silverback" Campbell aka Alpha Male (7-0, 3 KOs) of Larinburg, NC in an eight-round light heavyweight battle.  Campbell is also coming off a victory at the Liacouras Center in Philadelphia, PA on April 4.  He defeated Roberto Acevedo in an eight-round majority decision.  Campbell is replacing Jeff Lacy, who was originally scheduled to take on Barrera but had to pull out due to managerial complications. 

About the change of opponents the undefeated Barrera said, "I just want to fight. I am grateful that Campbell stepped in so I can keep this opportunity to fight on June 21. I am ready for whoever steps in the ring against me." Campbell, also undefeated, replied, "I thank God for the opportunity to fight Barrera. Secondly, I want to thank Main Events for their support. I pray that all fighters exit the ring without serious injury. I am confident in my coach and team that we will give the fans a great show. I look forward to future opportunities."

Another undefeated prospect, Khalib Whitmore (5-0, 4 KOs), of Philadelphia, PA is scheduled for four rounds of light heavyweight action but his opponent is still to be determined. Whitmore is coming off a second round KO over Antonio Liles on January 25, 2014 at the Sands Resort Casino in Bethlehem, PA.  

Local favorite, Erik Spring (1-0), of Reading, PA and Jamil Gadsden (0-4) of Newark, NJ will meet up for four rounds of junior middleweight action. Spring made his professional debut on April 24, 2014 with a four-round majority decision victory over Lionel Charles at the Sands Casino Resort in Bethlehem, PA. Gadsden is looking for his first professional victory since making his professional debut in 2012.

In an all-Jersey showdown two junior middleweights will make their professional debuts. Hakeem Bryant of Middletown, NJ and Al Johnson of Vineland, NJ are scheduled to face each other for four rounds.
Finally, Wellington Romero (3-0, 1 KO), the undefeated light welterweight from Newburgh, NY who defeated then-undefeated Gerald Smith on March 29 at the Ballroom at Boardwalk Hall on the undercard of the Kovalev-Agnew fight will return to take on Mack Babb (0-2) of Brooklyn, NY for four rounds.

Jolene Mizzone, Main Events' matchmaker, wanted to showcase Barrera on this undercard and to include a lot of local talent, "Barrera is an up-and-coming prospect that is eager to stay busy to show he belongs in the competitive light heavyweight division.  The rest of the card is packed with local boxers looking to showcase their talent in front of their hometown fans."

Main Events' CEO Kathy Duva said, "There are six undefeated fighters on this card (two facing each other) and two pro debuts (also facing each other).  Everyone is matched well.  This should be incredibly exciting for the fans in attendance at Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs."
