Tickets officially went on sale today for the much anticipated inaugural show of the NBC Sports Network Fight Night series on January 21, 2012, at Asylum Arena, in Philadelphia, PA. Fight fans will want to purchase tickets early as the arena is intimate and seats will sell out quickly.

Philadelphia heavyweight contender "Fast" Eddie Chambers takes on former World Heavyweight Champion Sergei "White Wolf" Liakhovich when the NBC Sports Network (currently named VERSUS) brings its first NBC Sports Network Fight Night broadcast to the City of Brotherly Love. 

Making his first hometown appearance since 2008, Chambers, (36-2, 18 KO's), who learned to fight in Philly's legendary gyms, will have his hands full when he faces "The White Wolf" of Scottsdale, AZ (25-4, 16 KO's) at Philadelphia's Asylum Arena. 

A former Russian Olympian, Liakhovich is an aggressive, heavy-handed competitor who rarely takes a step backwards and always makes great fights. His epic 2006 brawl with Lamon Brewster, when the native of Vitebsk, Belarus won the WBO Heavyweight Championship, is still characterized by many boxing pundits as the best heavyweight fight of the past ten years.

Opening the television broadcast at 9 p.m. will be a blistering junior middleweight battle between "King" Gabriel Rosado of Philadelphia (18-5, 10 KO's) and Jesus Soto-Karass of Tijuana, Mexico (24-6, 16 KO's). Promoted by Main Events, Peltz Productions and Goossen Tutor, the non-televised undercard fights will begin at 7 p.m. The remainder of the card will be announced in the coming weeks.
