The next installment of “Championship Boxing on CBS Sports Network”, scheduled for Friday, June 26, 2015, from the Seneca Niagara Resort & Casino in Niagara Falls, New York, is taking shape. The night’s 10-round main event will feature Dennis “Hurricane” Hogan (21-0-1, 7 KOs) of Queensland, Australia (via Kildare, Ireland), facing Kenny Abril (14-7-1, 7 KOs) of Rochester, New York.
In the co-featured bout, Canada’s Tony “Lightning” Luis (19-3, 7 KOs) returns to the ring for the first time since his highly controversial “loss” to England’s Derry Matthews for the WBA World Championship last April. Luis will take on tough veteran Edward Valdez (13-10-2, 3 KOs) in a 10-rounder.
And in two very special added features, American heavyweight knockout artist Jarrell “Big Baby” Miller (13-0-1, 10 KOs) will return to the ring just 22 days after his main-event TKO 2 over Damon McCreary to take on local slugger Excell Holmes of Buffalo in a six-rounder; and middleweight “Mean” Joe Greene (25-1, 16 KOs) will return to the ring for the first time in over two years to face Michigan’s Guy Packer in a six-rounder.
On the undercard, two local prospects will make their pro debuts, as Rochester, New York, super featherweight Hashuan Sambolin will go his first four against Cincinnati’s Micah Branch; and Buffalo lightweight Daniel DeJesus will make his debut against TBA. And rounding the action, Kazakhstan’s undefeated Bakhtiyer Eubov will look to keep his perfect 5-0, 5 KOs record intact against New York welterweight Jason Thompson (5-10-4, 4 KOs).
