Alessi Promotions brings back championship boxing to the Westshore DoubleTree this Friday in Tampa, Florida. In the main event of the evening, undefeated Ray Ximenez (7-0-0, 3 KOs) will battle Jose “Chilli” Rivera (3-5-2, 0 KOs) for the NBA Junior Flyweight title. Ximenez was last seen in action just one month ago at the DoubleTree, knocking out Manuel Galaviz inside of a round. The young Texan prospect will look to continue this winning streak and capture the first of possibly many titles in his future.
The co-main event features Florida’s own “Silky” Wilky Campfort (10-1-0, 5 KOs) in action against Djolevi Ballogou (8-3-0, 6 KOs) of Togo. Also in action on the card is St. Petersburg’s Clarence Booth (3-1-0, 2 KOs), and Fort Myers’ Marcus Willis (11-2-2, 3 KOs). The Westshore DoubleTree is located at 4500 West Cypress Street, Tampa, Florida 33607. Tickets are still available and can be purchased from www.AlessiPromotions.com. First bell rings at 7:40 this Friday.
