June 21st ESPN Friday Night Fights undercard set

The undercard has been announced for the Friday, June 21, night of ESPN Friday Night Fights boxing, presented by Seconds Out Promotions and Warriors Boxing, at the Minneapolis Convention Center.

 

A total of eight big fights are scheduled in support of the 12-round main event featuring Cuba's IBF #2-rated Rances "Kid Blast" Barthelemy (18-0, 11 KO) taking on Thailand's IBF #5-rated Fahsai "Mountain Boy" Sakkreerin (39-3-1, 21 KO) and the explosive, 10-round middleweight co-main between local hero "Golden" Caleb Truax (21-1-1, 12 KO) of Osseo, Minnesota, and Chicago's Don "Da Bomb" George (24-3-2, 21 KO).

An eight-round crosstown battle will highlight the night's undercard, as St Paul's Jeremy "Lights Out" McLaurin (10-5, 5 KOs) will face St Paul's Tony "2Sharp" Lee (7-1, 3 KOs) for the vacant Minnesota State Lightweight Championship.
