On February 13, Featherweight prospect Carlos Rivera 14-3-2 (5 KO’s) will take a step up in competition as he will battle Johnnie “Lumberjack” Edwards 14-3-1 (8 KO’s) in the main event of Starfight Productions’ “Fight Night” at the A La Carte Event Pavilion. Edwards, who has two wins over former world champion Freddie Norwood, is coming off a disputed majority decision loss to hot prospect Ty Barnett in November. Rivera is riding a wave of momentum as he is unbeaten in his last six trips to the squared circle. The Rivera-Edwards contest is scheduled for eight rounds.
In the co-main event will be undefeated Middleweight prospect Ahsandi Gibbs 9-0 (3 KO’s) vs Omar Bell 6-1 (4 KO’s) over six rounds. Bell is the brother of former undisputed Cruiserweight kingpin O’Neil Bell. Heavyweight Jason Barnett 10-8 (4 KO’s) will battle Moises Droz 13-6 (10 KO’s) in a six round rematch of their 2007 contest, which Barnett won by majority decision.
Light heavyweight Adam Hubinger 11-0 (10 KO’s) will return to the ring following a 3 ½ year layoff to challenge Terrance Smith 5-9-2 (3 KO’s) in a 6 rounder. Smith’s record serves him no justice as he has tangled with many prospects and contenders. Dillet Frederick 5-2-3 (2 KO’s) will take on Laquel Fleming 1-1-2 over four at Welterweight. Rounding out the card is a four round featherweight contest between Charlie Serrano 6-2 (2 KO’s) and Adrian Perez 4-1-1 (1 KO).
