Prescott returns February 20!

On February 20th, promoter Ahmet Öner will present his next FNF show live from the University Center Arena at Nova Southeastern University in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. The show labelled as “The Gunslingers” will feature rising Colombian lightweight star Breidis Prescott (20-0, 18 KOs), fellow Colombian jr. middleweight contender Richard Gutierrez (24-2-1, 13 KOs) and hot Cuban jr. middleweight prospect Erislandy Lara (3-0, 2 KOs). The 25-year-old Prescott shocked the world in September when he knocked out uo-and-coming British star Amir Khan in his backyard in Manchester.

While Lara is seeking to back up the hype he started with his 1st round TKO-win last week in Nevada, Gutierrez tries to find back to the winning ways after an upset draw against Jerome Ellis last July and his loss to hard hitting Alfredo Angulo last May.

ARENA has started off this year’s ESPN “Friday Night Fights” series last week with Yuriorkis Gamboa, Odlanier Solis and Erislandy Lara scoring impressive wins in Primm, Nevada. “I think we had a great start into the new year with Gamboa, Solis and Lara”, stated Öner. “And we will be happy to continue promoting great shows with exciting fighters. Thanks to ESPN we can present our young, wild and hungry guys to the world.”
