Promoter Les Bonano has announced that heavyweight Kendrick Releford (21-13-2, 10 KOs) will replace injured Leo Nolan in the main event to battle with “Big Fred” Kassi (15-1, 8 KOs) on April 24th at the Hollywood Casino in Bay St. Louis, Mississippi. “Releford will be the best fighter that Kassi has ever fought in his professional career,” said Bonano. Nolan pulled out of the Kassi fight late last week with a back injury. He forwarded copies of his medicals from Henry Ford Medical Center. Nolan’s representative stated that the fight with Kassi will be rescheduled when Nolan obtains the approval medically to fight.
