Summer is generally slow for boxing, but the middleweight division looks to heat up in the summer months in the Midwest portion of the USA. Action begins July 6th in Carlton, Minnesota, featuring 160-pounder Cerresso Fort (16-1-1, 11 KOs) from St. Paul, MN.
Davenport, Iowa, follows on Saturday July 13th as undefeated Illinois middleweight George Carter Jr. (9-0, 5 KOs) heads that ten bout card.
Next up is the July 19th show in Cicero, Illinois, featuring middleweight Ronald Hearns of Detroit (26-4, 20 KOs) in the main event.
July features more middleweight action in Cicero, on the 26th as Osumanu Adama (21-3, 15 KOs) from Ghana, now living and fighting out of Joliet, Illinois will headline that card.
Two of these middleweight contests are expected to be for regional title belts as the USA Midwest and Mid-American middleweight titles are both currently vacant.
