In the main event, Neequaye makes his U.S. debut against Federico Flores Jr. (7-4-1, 2 KOs) of Mission, TX. Neequaye is from Accra, Ghana, the same hometown of the legendary Azumah Nelson, who is widely considered as the greatest African boxer.

In the co-main event, reigning New York State middleweight champion Nick Brinson (9-1-2, 5 KOs) of Geneva will defend his title against cross-state rival Markus Williams (10-2, 1 KO) of Schenectady.
