After suffering his first loss, Young has won five of his last six, including four straight. In his last bout, Young won a six-round unanimous decision over James Robinson on January 20th in Atlantic City. This will be Young's ninth appearance in Atlantic City.
"I don't know too much about my opponent, but I will be ready for him. I do know that he has a good record and is moving up in weight," said Young. "It's always good to fight at home in Atlantic City. I get to sleep in my bed, and get to fight in front of my hometown fans."
Casarez of Batesville, Arkansas is 26 years oldl.

"I watched some tape of Young, and he is fast and moves well," said Casarez. "I know that I am stronger, and will bring pressure to him. I feel confident after the win in China. That fight gave me good experience and it taught me that I just need to be in 100% condition to win fights, and it really does not matter where I fight."
