Headlining the show, after almost a two year layoff will be super lightweight R.J. “T-Rex” Laase 12-2 who was suppose to fight a few months back for his return to the ring but his opponent couldn’t make the weight, so Laase continued to train and wait for his next opportunity. Now his first fight back since his loss to Rondale Hubbert almost two years ago for the Minnesota State Super Lightweight Title will be in the Main Event against a very tough opponent the Wisconsin Super Welterweight champion Benito Tovar 7-2-4. The reason for his long absence from the ring was because he chose to go back to college and finish his earning his degree. The Co-Main Event will feature Cruiserweight Al “The Haitian Temptation” Sands 16-2, who has had a great training camp with some new teammates and is excited to be stepping up against the crafty veteran “Dangerous” Damon Reed 48-18 who has been in the ring with some of the best, James Toney, Hasim Rahman, and the Heavyweight Champion of the World, Deontay Wilder.

He was a very outstanding amateur boxer and he will be going head to head with Tommy Ray 3-1 .The rumor is that Ray called him out for this fight and this won’t be the first time they have met in the ring, their last meeting was in the amateurs, the question is what will happen when they meet as professionals for the first time.  Also some time during the night it will get Nasty.
