All fighters made weight for the next edition of Premier Boxing Champions (PBC) on Bounce TV, which takes place Sunday evening at Lakeland Events Center in Lakeland, Florida.
Kanat Islam makes his first appearance as a U.S. televised headliner, as he faces Juan De Angel in a scheduled 10-round super welterweight battle.
Islam (20-0, 17KOs) – a two-time Olympian for China, but who proudly represents his Kazakhstani heritage – tipped the scales at 152.8 pounds. De Angel (18-3-1, 17KOs) weighed 154.2 pounds for his second career fight outside of Colombia.
The bout that can potentially steal the show comes in the co-feature, as friends-turned-rivals Miguel Cruz and Samuel Figueroa meet in an eight-round welterweight bout. Both boxers weighed 146.6 pounds.
