No Limits Promotions in association with Joey Eye Promotions are set to bring a star studded card of international intrigue to the “City of Brotherly Love” on Wednesday night, July 14.

The eight round welterweight co-feature of the evening, will feature the 2008 Olympic Gold medal winner from the Dominican Republic, Felix Diaz (5-0, 3 KOs).
