Junior middleweight contender Jimmy Lange (33-4-2, 22 KOs) is back in action this Friday night, hoping to continue his winning streak after scoring a second-round knockout over Jimmy LeBlanc in his last bout on July 10. Lange, a lifetime resident of Northern Virginia, returns to the ring on Friday in Greensboro, NC, beginning a busy three-fight schedule leading him to Monroe, MI in September and back home to the Patriot Center in November.
Lange will face Baltimore veteran Mike McFail in a six-round special attraction bout as part of Walter Johnson Promotion’s “Friday Night KO Fights” this Friday, August 20 at the Greensboro (NC) Coliseum Complex’s War Memorial Auditorium.

Tickets, starting at $15 for general admission, are available in advance at the Greensboro Coliseum box office or at the door on fight night. Seven bouts are scheduled for the card.
After the stop down south, Lange will travel to the Midwest on Saturday, September 18 to be part of a Monroe, MI show headlined by former WBO Light Middleweight world champion and Michigan native Bronco McKart.
