“I watched 30 seconds of Jose Lopez and said, ‘Oh yea, we got this.’ I took the fight in eleven days notice. I could have done better. But I won convincingly.”

“I’m pushing to be a world champion. I got to beat certain guys and do certain things to get there. But I am willing to do those things. I’m getting better every fight. I train for a 12-round world championship fight every fight.”

Jerome Conquest, WBF Lightweight Champion
Conquest of Philadelphia, a former Parx Casino® employee, will test himself against seasoned veteran Tyrone Luckey of Neptune, NJ.

Nahir Albright, Junior Welterweight
Albright of Sickerville, NJ faces off with Sidney Maccow of New York, who will be traveling to Pennsylvania for the first time since his pro debut in 2014.

I like Manny Pacquiao. He came from nothing. He used to run with no shoes. It shows you that hard work will get you anywhere in this sport.” -Nahir Albright

Isaiah Wise, 2017 Briscoe Award Nominee, Fight of the Year vs Fred Jenkins
Wise of North Philadelphia, will be in a classic Philly vs. New Jersey match up when he goes toe-to-toe with Anthony Prescott of Cherry Hill.
