RESORTS INTERNATIONAL HOTEL AND CASINO ATLANTIC CITY

ATLANTIC CITY - When the popular nationally televised live boxing series Fight Night returns for its Friday, January 24th season opener on NBC Sports Network, the co-feature bout will be an intriguing clash for the NABF championship belt between two African cruiserweights. South African Thabiso "The Rock" Mchunu, 14-1, 10 KOs, meets Olanrewaju "God's Power" Durodola, 15-1, 14 KOs, of West Africa, in a 10-round fight at Resorts International Hotel and Casino, on the Atlantic City Boardwalk. Durodola stepped in when Garrett Wilson was forced to pull out of the bout due to an injury. The fight is the main supporting bout of a card headlined by the 10-round middleweight encounter between Curtis Stevens and Patrick Majewski.

 

Ramirez, in what many said was the toughest test of his young pro boxing career, scored a fifth-round KO of Denver’s Rob Frankel.

• The 22-year-old is now pointed toward a July fight in China that would be televised by HBO.

• A seven-bout card drew a crowd of 8,640 to Selland Arena.
