Prize Fight Promotions and Sky Ute Casino Resort in southern Colorado presents “Rumble in The Rockies II” – a six-bout card lined up for tomorrow night, and featuring legend James “Lights Out” Toney.

Toney, (74-8-3, 45KOs), will take on Colorado-based heavyweight Kenny ‘Sagrado Warrior’ Lemos, (12-7-2, 8KOs), in the eight-round main event. Toney is a legend in the sport but has taken a long slow slide downward. His last bout was a decision loss in Australia to Lucas Browne in April. Lemos fought twice in 2012 going 1-0-1. Lemos’ biggest enemy in the ring has always been his weight. He was a fast-handed and promising amateur before turning pro and running his record to 8-1-1, before facing future world title challenger Chris Arreola. The co-main will see promising New Mexican middleweight Gerardo Quintana, (3-0, 3 KOs), who looks to keep his knockout streak alive facing MMA convert Chris Leyva who will be making his pro boxing debut. In three fights, Quintana has a mere 3 and a half rounds under his belt.

In another middleweight bout, John Grant, (1-0) fights un-won Zamir Young, (0-1) in a six-rounder. Grant will have the hometown advantage as he is from nearby Farmington, New Mexico. Colorado’s Raymond Nichol, (3-1-1, 2KOs) will share the ring with Jazzma Hogue, (2-5-1, 0KO) in a five-rounder. Hogue has lost five bouts in a row while Nichol lost his first fight as a pro in July of last year and will look to get back on track.

Rounding out the undercard will be Steve Victor, (1-2-1, 0KO), against Carlos Sanchez, (5-4, 2KOs) and Shanatu Hogue (0-2), versus Ronnie Reams, (1-2, 0KO) in five-round bouts.

Tickets are available at the door ranging in price from $25 to $45. The doors open at 6pm with the first bout scheduled to start at 7. The Sky Ute Casino is located at 14324 Hwy 172 N, Ignacio, CO 81137. For more information visit or call (970) 563-7777.
