Amidu vs. Revish New Main Event for April 9 Boxing Event at Horseshoe Casino

Battle for the NABA-US Super Lightweight Championship

The main event has changed again for the Hitz Boxing Fight Night event on Saturday, April 9, at the Venue in the Horseshoe Casino, in Hammond, Indiana.

Yakubu “Black Mamba” Amidu (19-2-1, 16 KOs) will face Louisiana’s John Revish (10-2-2, 8 KOs) for the NABA-US Super Lightweight Title.

26-year-old Amidu’s only losses have come to current WBO champion Ricky Burns and multiple-time world championship challenger Ali Funeka. This will be Revish’s second consecutive title fight. He held capable veteran Jason Pires to a majority draw last March and even dropped him twice.

“This is shaping up to be a great fight between these two,” said Bobby Hitz, Founder of Hitz Boxing. “They can both punch and they’ve both been in with good opposition. Two solid pros going to war to see who can win this championship.”

The night’s undercard is packed with up-and-coming young contenders, mostly from the Chicago area.

Scheduled to appear are: Hammond’s own Ruben “Modern Day Warrior” Galvan (27-15-4, 10 KOs) in a welterweight match-up; Chicago middleweight Mike Kurzeja (4-0, 4 KOs); Chicago super middleweight Ninos Abraham (5-0, 2 KOs); Chicago heavyweight Dave Latoria (7-0, 3 KOs); Chicago junior lightweight Paulie Settepani making his pro debut; Chicago Junior Middleweight JOHN LEWUS (24-4-1, 20 KOs) and Chicago light welterweight Russell Fiore (4-0-1, 4 KOs) in separate bouts.
