Adding yet another national name to an already outstanding card, Joe DeGuardia's Star Boxing and One Punch Productions are pleased to announce the addition of undefeated WBO #1 ranked Jr. Welterweight "Mighty" Mike Arnaoutis to the Nate Campbell vs. Isaac Hlatshwayo IBO Lightweight Title / IBF Lightweight Eliminator card set for this Friday April 7 to be televised on ESPN2 Friday Night Fights. The fight will be held in the Entertainment Hall at The Florida State Fairgrounds in Tampa, Florida.
Arnaoutis (16-0-2, 8 KO's), a native of Athens, Greece, now joins former 2004 Olympian Roberto Benitez on the 10-bout card from Entertainment Hall at the Florida State Fairgrounds.
"We are pleased to add Mike Arnaoutis, the top Jr. Welterweight prospect in the world, to a talent-filled card such as this one. He adds excitement and fanfare to an already explosive event" stated Joe DeGuardia of Star Boxing.
"Aside from the significance of the Campbell-Hlatshwayo bout, which will be broadcast live on ESPN2 Friday Night Fights, this event now will also be a chance for the large Greek community in the Tampa Bay area to come out and see "Mighty" Mike in person, so of course Joe DeGuardia, Mike Michaels, and myself are extremely pleased that this additional deal came together, even if it is on somewhat short notice" stared Terry J. Trekas of One Punch Productions.
