Undefeated middleweight prospect Fernando Guerrero headlines in his first pay-per-view main event Friday night, headlining the “Boxing’s Future Champions” pay-per-view card in front of his passionate hometown fans at Wicomico Civic Center in Salisbury, Maryland. “Boxing’s Future Champions,” presented by Prize Fight Boxing, will air on PPV at www.PrizeFightTV.com, starting at 8 PM/ET, for only $4.95. “We’re excited to launch this series and bring world-class boxing to diehard fans all over,” promoter Brian Young said. “For a nominal fee fans can watch a first-class production featuring tomorrow’s champions today. We have six unbeaten fighters, including two former International amateur champions, and two pairs of brothers on this card.”
Guerrero (13-0, 11 KOs), born in the Dominican Republic, makes Salisbury his home where he regularly fights before a packed house. He has already fought twice on ESPN and once on Showtime. The talented southpaw takes on Brian “The Assassin” Norman in the 8-round main event. The 22-year-old Guerrero captured a gold medal at the World Cadet Junior Olympics and 2007 USA National Championships, among his more notable amateur accomplishments. Norman went the distance against Jean Pascal and he has also been in the ring against Henry Buchanan.
“It feels good knowing I’ll be fighting in my first main event,” Guerrero noted, “but every time I’ve fought at home, I felt that I was in the main event because everybody left after my fight. Now, everybody knows I’m in the main event.”
The 6-round co-feature pits 2007 World Golden Gloves champion Shawn Porter (8-0, 6 KOs), arguably the top US amateur boxer of the 21st century, against upset-minded junior middleweight Dion Savage (5-0, 3 KOs), in a rare match-up of unbeaten prospects. Porter, a 2008 US OIympic Team alternate, is a complete fighter who has tremendous upside.
Philadelphia super middleweight Farah Enis (10-0, 5 KOs) puts his undefeated record on the line against another unbeaten prospect, Bobby Jordan (6-0, 2 KOs), in an 8-round bout.
Also on the undercard is exciting middleweight Dominic Wade (2-0, 2 KOs) versus. Anthony Cannon (4-12, 1 KO) and Fernando’s older brother, Alex Guerrero, making his pro debut against cruiserweight Rodrika Ray (2-1, 1 KO) in a pair of 4-round bouts, plus Farah’s older brother, Derrick “Pooh” Ennis, Jr. (17-2, 12 KOs), faces junior middleweight Joshua “Poison” Onyango (14-17, 11 KOs) in an 8-round match.
