Televised coverage begins at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT and is headlined by undefeated prospect Caleb “Sweet Hands” Plant taking on hard-hitting Colombian Juan De Angel. Additional televised coverage will see undefeated light heavyweight prospects Carlos Congora and Ronald Mixon in an eight-round bout.

Rounding out the night of fights is New Yorker Yurik Mamedov in a four-round welterweight bout against Philadelphia’s Antonio Allen and New Jersey’s Daquan Johnson in a four-round welterweight fight against Atlanta’s Stephen Bass.
A young, up-and-coming fighter from Washington, D.C., Martin turned pro in 2014 and is yet to lose as a pro. The 20-year-old picked up four victories last year and owns a decision victory over Somner Martin in 2016. He will take on a fellow D.C. native in Grayton, who looks to bounce back after a loss to unbeaten Bryant Perrella in June. Previously the 29-year-old was unbeaten and had picked up a victory in January of this year over Daniel Souza Santos.
