WINTER PARK, FL- Along from the craziness that came with the fight lineup, there were a few more issues to resolve at the scakes before finally moving forward with Friday night's show at Full Sail Live on Full Sail University campus in Winter Park, Florida.

Topping the show—the second installment of Premier Boxing Champions' 'PBC on Bounce TV: The Next Round' series—Jamal James puts his unbeaten record on the line versus hard-hitting Juan Carlos Abreu in a 10-round welterweight bout. James weighed in at a trim and ready 144.4 lbs., while Abreu tipped the scales at 144.2 lbs.

The fight received an upgrade to main event overnight, after the originally intended headliner fell through. Caleb Truax was due to face Fernando Guerrero, but was forced to withdraw due to an issue with his pre-fight medicals not getting approved in time.
Guerrero is now off of the card, but still involved as he will appear on the broadcast as a guest analyst.  

With James-Abreu moving up to the top of the bill, Erickson Lubin will now be showcased in the co-feature slot. Two weeks shy of his 20th birthday, the blue chip prospect from Orlando plays in front of a hometown crowd versus veteran Orlando Lora in bout now scheduled for 10 rounds.

Lubin (11-0, 8KOs) weighed 154 lbs.; Lora was 153.8 lbs.

Advanced from non-TV to the televised opener, Tampa-based super welterweight Wilky Campfort faces Colombia's Ronald Montes in an eight-round bout. 

Campford (20-1, KOs) officially registered at 156 lbs., though requiring an additional hour to hit the mark. The Tampa-based Haitian was initially 0.6 lbs. over the 156 lbs. catchweight limit, returning roughly 55 minutes later and still having to strip down to his birthday suit in order to make weight.

Montes (16-2, 14KOs) came in at 155.2 lbs. for his first fight in the United States.
