WBC #12, WBA #13, WBO and IBF #14 light heavyweight Joey “KO Kid” Spina (25-1-1, 17 KOs) will take on former world champion Lou “Honey Boy” Del Valle (36-6-1, 22 KOs) ina ten rounder on Halloween night at the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Conn. “Joey Spina, pound-for-pound, remains one of the hardest-hitting fighters in the world,” promoter Jimmy Burchfield claimed. “He’s very exciting to watch and fans never know when he’s going to put his opponent to sleep with one big shot. Del Valle has a great chin, though, and he’s held his own against future Hall of Famers like Jones and Hill. A solid performance by Joey against a former world champion like Del Valle should put Spina in line for a major fight. It’s going to be a haunting experience, for sure.”
As previously announced, super bantamweight Mike Oliver (22-2, 7 KOs) faces upset specialist Andre Wilson (11-3-1, 9 KOs) in the 8-round co-feature. Ryan “The Polish Prince” Kielczewski (5-0, 2 KOs) and Frank Trader (6-0, 2 KOs), a pair of popular, undefeated lightweight prospects are scheduled to see action in four-round separate bouts.
