Before the cameras roll, nine undercard fights will take place that will feature a variety of prospects and contenders ,which includes popular Atlantic City based welterweight, Anthony “Juice” Young.
Young, who has a record of 11-2 with five knockouts is coming off a loss to Skander Halili at Boardwalk Hall.
“I switched my trainer to “Chino” Rivas and I am happy to get back in there. I am a sore loser,”” said Young.
“it’s been a great training camp. I have known Chino since I started boxing, but this is my first time working with him. It;s great to be in the gym with fighter’s like Jason Sosa, Tevin Farmer, Thomas LaManna & Anthony Burgin.”
“I don’t know too much about my opponent other than he fought my trainer’s son.”
Ït’s always important to fight home. I gave them a sour tatse with my last performance, so I want to get back.”
Said Young’s manager, Rich Masini, “We are excited to get Anthony back in the ring at home so quickly after that loss. We still think the world of him and that was just a minor setback and with a great performance on Friday, we feel that he will be back on a good line to get some great opportunities.”
