If you are a real boxing fan, you are going to love Friday night because three different cards will be televised on three different networks.
Closest to home, Antonio Orozco (18-0, 14 KOs) of San Diego will take on Miguel Angel Huerta (27-11-1, 18 KOs) of Mexico in the junior welterweight main event on a Golden Boy Promotions card at Fantasy Springs Casino in Indio (on Fox Sports 1). Julian Ramirez (9-0, 6 KOs) of Pasadena will take on Derrick Wilson (10-5-2, 3 KOs) of Fort Myers, Fla. in the featherweight semi-main event.
Over in Shelton, Wash., Thomas Williams (15-0, 10 KOs) of Fort Washington, Md. and Cornelius White (21-2, 16 KOs) of Houston will square off in the light heavyweight main event from Little Creek Casino Resort (on ESPN2).
Also, Curtis Stevens (25-4, 18 KOs) of Brooklyn and Patrick Majewski (21-2, 13 KOs) of Atlantic City via Poland will fight in the middleweight main event from Resorts International in Atlantic City (on NBC Sports Network).
Heavyweight contender Tomasz Adamek was to face Tony Grano in the main event Aug. 3 at Mohegan Sun in Uncasville, Conn. But Grano pulled out with a back injury and Adamek will now face former contender Dominick Guinn in the main event (on NBC Sports Network).
Houston’s Guinn, 38, is 34-9-1 with 23 knockouts. He has lost three of his past four bouts. Adamek, 36, is from Jersey City, N.J., via Poland. The former light heavyweight and cruiserweight champion has a record of 48-2 with 29 knockouts. Among his victories was one over Chris Arreola in April 2010 at Citizens Business Bank Arena in Ontario.
Three 10-round bouts – one in the heavyweight division – will highlight an Aug. 3 card at Mohegan Sun Casino in Uncasville, Conn., and all three will be televised on NBC Sports Network.
Leading the way will be heavyweight contender Tomasz Adamek (48-2, 29 KOs) of Jersey City, N.J. via Poland going against Tony Grano (20-3-1, 16 KOs) of Hartford, Conn.
“We are going to see Tomasz Adamek perform again, and we all know what that means,” promoter Kathy Duva said. “Excitement, action, fun, thrills. He’s going to fighting a hometown fighter. Tony Grano comes from Connecticut. So for a change, there’s going to be people on both sides cheering.”
Also, Eddie Chambers (36-3, 18 KOs) of Philadelphia will go against Thabiso Mchunu (13-1, 10 KOs) of South Africa in the cruiserweight division. And Curtis Stevens (24-3, 17 KOs) of Brownsville, N.Y., will take on Saul Roman (37-9, 31 KOs) of Mexico in a middleweight bout.
