New foe for Fres!

Two time heavyweight world title challenger Fres Oquendo (29-5, 18 KOs) will now face New Jersey native Mark Brown (15-1, 7 KOs) for the WBC Latino Heavyweight Title this Friday night in the ten round main event at the seven bout at Chicago’s UIC Pavilion, it was announced today by Dominic Pesoli, President of 8 Count Productions. Said Pesoli, “There was an issue with his original opponent, Gonzalo Omar Basile getting into the United States from Argentina . Brown is a very tough, heavy handed, heavyweight from New Jersey . He’s won eight in a row and had three knockouts in 2008. He’s coming to fight and I know Fres wants to put on a great performance for the fans so it should be a very good battle.” Advance tickets start at $31. Call 312-226-5800.
