The main event will feature local favorite Alonzo "Big Zo" Butler (31-3-2) in a special heavyweight attraction.  Undefeated super bantamweight Vic Pasillas (15-0) will also see action on the card.  Roy Jones Jr. will have several fighters on the card including Rashid Akzhigitov (10-0), Shady Gamhour (12-0) and Ikram Kerwat (10-2).

"This is a great opportunity. I have been looking for somebody to come along and give these youngsters an opportunity to show themselves to the world. Not only that as you know I go back and forth to Russia and I got a lot of fighters over there as well and having a network that can travel and go there and showcase that talent gives we a global platform and that is something very needed and very necessary and is great for boxing," Jones stated.
