Ray Robinson tops Feb. 21 Dover, DE card

By Rick Scharmberg

IBF #15-ranked welterweight Ray “The New Ray Robinson” Robinson (16-2, 7 KOs) will headline the February 21 show against an opponent to be named at Dover Downs Hotel & Casino in Dover, Delaware. Robinson last fought on August 2, 2013, when he won the vacant USBA welterweight title with a spectacular seventh round KO over Ray “The Emperor” Narh at the Bob Carpenter Center in Newark, Delaware. Robinson has won five straight fights since dropping a decision to current IBF welterweight champion Shawn “Showtime” Porter in a nationally televised bout back in 2010.

The card, which is being presented by Dover Downs Hotel & Casino, is still shaping up. Other fighters scheduled to appear in separate bouts include super featherweight Cornelius Lock (21-6-2, 13 KOs), popular lightweight “Jolt’n” Joey Tiberi (11-1, 5 KOs), and Dover’s unbeaten super middleweight John “Church Boy” Bowman (8-0-1, 1 KO).

Tickets are on sale now, and can be purchased by calling 1-800-711-5882.
