Magdaleno vs. Dogboe headlines a card with plenty of Philadelphia flavor. Amateur rivals Bryant 'By-By' Jennings and Joey Dawejko square off in a 10-round bout to decide Philadelphia heavyweight supremacy, while Jesse 'Hollywood' Hart, son of Philadelphia middleweight legend Eugene 'Cyclone' Hart, continues his march to another super middleweight title shot against Demond Nicholson in the 10-round co-feature.
