NEW OPPONENT FOR J'LEON LOVE
Press Release: Bronco McKart has been sidelined by a rib injury sustained in training, so Gary, Indiana's Derrick "Superman" Findley (20-8) will step in to battle Detroit's J'Leon Love at the Masonic Temple Theatre in Detroit on Saturday, February 23rd. The ten-round middleweight bout will be telecast on Showtime at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT (delayed on the West Coast). The main event remains Detroit's Cornelius "K9" Bundrage defending his IBF 154-pound title against Las Vegas' Ishe "Sugar Shay" Smith.
Tickets are on sale now and are available for purchase at the Masonic Temple box office, online at www.ticketmaster.com, all Ticketmaster locations or by calling 800-745-3000.
In 2012, Detroit's J'Leon Love (14-0, 8 KOs) went five for five with two knockouts, two clear decisions wins and a disqualification win. How will the 25-year-old former amateur star top that in 2013? Odds are that he will find a way with his ever-expanding skill set and exciting style, both of which will be on display on February 23 against Derrick Findley.
Derrick "Superman" Findley (20-8, 13 KO's) is currently sporting a two fight winning streak that includes a second-round knockout of Ronald Hearns that took place in Taylor, Michigan last October.
