The series finale of 'Friday Night Fights' and the finals of the 2015 Boxcino tournament will take place on the same day and in an unlikely venue.
Both will take place on May 22 at the outdoor Omega Products International in Corona, Calif., Banner Promotions Artie Pelullo told BoxingScene.com.
The semi-finals of the Boxcino tournament will take place this Friday night at the Sands Casino Resort in Bethlehem, Penn.
In the junior middleweight tournament, Stanyslav Skorokhod (9-0, 7 KOs) will fight John Thompson (15-1, 5 KOs), while Brandon Adams (16-1, 11 KOs) faces Vito Gasparyan (18-3-5, 8 KOs).
In the heavyweight tournament, Andrey Fedesov (26-3, 21 KOs) will fight Lenroy Thomas (19-3, 9 KOs), while Razvan Cojanu faces Donovan Dennis (11-1, 9 KOs).
All four bouts are scheduled for eight rounds, but the finals on May 22 in Corona will be scheduled for 10 rounds.
The Omega Products International in Corona was the venue on Friday where Petr Petrov defeated Gamaliel Diaz by unanimous decision over 10 rounds. The venue is a loading area of the Omega Products International business and it is situated along Interstate 15.
Thompson Boxing Promotions, which co-promotes a number of cards with Banner Promotions, have mostly used the venue for fight cards during the summer since 2003.
