Undercard action features a bevy of Chicago prospects as unbeaten welterweight Alex Martin (12-0, 5 KOs) takes on Dominican Juan Carlos Abreu (19-2-1, 18 KOs) in an eight-round bout, Jose Quezada (10-0, 6 KOs) competes in a six-round super lightweight bout against Hawaii's Cameron Krael (8-10-2, 1 KO) and Ramiro Carrillo (10-0, 7 KOs) enters the ring in an eight-round super lightweight bout.

Oxnard, California's Centeno had long been one of boxing's top prospects with victories over Ayi Bruce, Keandre Leatherwood, Angel Osuna and Gerardo Ibarra. In December 2014 he faced his stiffest test to date against James De La Rosa and passed with flying colors, scoring a spectacular fifth-round knockout. The 25-year-old has followed that up with victories over Lukasz Maciec and Josue Ovando heading into this June 18 showdown.
 
Fighting in the U.S. for the fourth straight time, the 27-year-old Sulecki most recently stopped Derrick Findley in the seventh round in January. Before coming to the U.S., Sulecki picked up impressive victories over previously unbeaten Robert Swierzbinski, former world title challenger Grzegorz Proksa and Lukasz Wawrzyczek. The fighter out of Warsaw, Poland was a three-time Polish Junior tournament champion and accumulated a 110-30 amateur record.

Wow i didnt know he had fought J-Rock till i read this, so i look up the fight n yea dude clearly quit, J-Rock was getting him looked Cent wanted out

Comment by Eastcoast on 06-18-2016

J-Rock was clearly beating Centeno when Centeno decided to quit on a cut. I still think Centeno is a legit fighter though and he'll show whether Sulecki is legit or not.

[QUOTE=Kigali;16777073]Centeno is not undefeated really...J-Rock made him quit.[/QUOTE] Yeah pulled a Devon Alexander in that fight. Tiny trickle of blood outside the eye... "I cant see, i cant see" Shame as it could have been somewhat of a break out…

Comment by Clegg on 06-18-2016

Looking forward to this one, Sulecki isn't well-known but looks good and is finding his power as he steps up his level of opposition. I'm thinking KO in 6 for the Polish Pulverizer.

[QUOTE=Kigali;16777073]Centeno is not undefeated really...J-Rock made him quit.[/QUOTE] Yeah, that's true. Julian Williams would have won that fight for sure.
