Sadam “World Kid” Ali
Heads Up April 9th
Adamek vs. McBride Undercard
Brooklyn’s Sadam “World Kid” Ali, 11-0, 6 KO’s, will step up into the co-feature on Saturday, April 9th vs. tough Javier Perez, of Ponce, Puerto Rico, when Tomasz Adamek faces Kevin McBride at Newark’s Prudential Center.
Apparently, Main Events matchmakers, Russell Peltz and Jolene Mizzone, have had their work cut out for them trying to match up the former Olympic standout. It seems Ali has struck fear in the hearts of most of the local welterwieght boxers. Mizzone said, “It’s ridiculous, you would think his first name was Muhammad!” Perez, who in his last fight scored a unanimous decision over Alexis Cintron, says he has no problem taking on Ali.
The rest of the undercard promises to live up to the benchmark set by the Main Events Brick City Boxing Series, and to continue thrilling local and true boxing fans:
