For those who have already fought the lines at the Florida State Fair and are looking for an activity this weekend, there is a good chance to watch people legally fight each other.
Starfight Productions, Inc. will host “Fight Night at the Pavilion” on Friday at the A La Carte Even Pavilion in Tampa. Doors open at 7 p.m, and the first fight begins at 8.
Featherweight prospect Carlos Rivera 14-3-2 (5 KO’s) will step up in competition and fight Johnnie “Lumberjack” Edwards 14-3-1 (8 KO’s) in the main event. 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 unbeaten in his last six fights.
The undercard includes middleweight prospect Ahsandi Gibbs 9-0 (3 KO’s) taking on Mark Sanders (3-1-1, 2 KOs) in a sixth round fight. Gibbs has shown an impressive will to win in his first nine professional fights and is always a fan favorite. Sanders, from Lithonia, GA, is unbeaten in his last three fights and is coming off a draw with St. Petersburg prospect Inka Laleye last November.
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 sixth round fight. Other slated fights include welterweight Dillet Frederick 5-2-3 (2 KO’s) taking on Laquel Fleming (1-1-2) and featherweight Charlie Serrano 6-2 (2 KO’s) against Adrian Perez 4-1-1 (1 KO).
