American Boxing Promotions hosts their inaugural card “The Rematch” this Friday at the South Point Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada. The main event features WBA and GBU lightweight champion Layla McCarter (31-13-5, 7 KOs) of Las Vegas against Fujin Raika (18-5-1, 6 KOs) of Tokyo, Japan in a rematch that’s been seven years in the making. In April of 2002, McCarter traveled to Tokyo Japan and won a majority 8-round decision over then undefeated Raika. McCarter would go on to win four world titles while Raika vowed to exact revenge. Also in action are former world title challenger jr middleweight Carlos Nascimento (23-1, 20 KOs) and once-beaten welterweight Antonio Mesquita (34-1, 28 KOs). Tickets for “The Rematch” start at $20 and are available at the South Point Hotel Casino box office (702-797-8055).
