Acevedo Ready for Littleton Test

Although it may be the first big test of his professional boxing career, Puerto Rican prospect Roberto Acevedo (7-0, 4 KOs) says he’s treating it like just another fight when he takes on Chicago’s also undefeated Paul Littleton (6-0-1, 4 KOs) on Friday at Chicago’s UIC Pavilion. The pair will meet in a six-round super middleweight bout on the undercard of the ESPN Friday Night Fights televised night of boxing presented by 8 Count Productions, Round 3 Productions and Warriors Boxing and in support of the night’s 10-round middleweight main event between Windy City favorite Donovan “Da Bomb” George (24-3-1, 21 KOs) and former world title challenger David “The Destroyer” Lopez (41-13, 23 KOs) of Nogales, Mexico.

In the other featured bout, former world champion Kermit “EL Asesino” Cintron (33-5-1, 28 KOs) will drop back down to welterweight to face Chicago slugger Adrian “EL Tigre” Granados (11-2-1, 7 KOs).
