World ranked #5 by the WBA and #11 by the WBO, the all-action 24-year-old Kambosos is hitting American shores following a ninth-round knockout of Krai Setthaphon on October 13, 2017, in his native Australia. He is training in Los Angeles under the guidance of a fellow Australian transplant, former heavyweight contender Justin Fortune.

Also fighting for the first time in the United States, Forero is returning to action following a hotly contested 12-round decision loss to Ibrahim Class in Hangelsberg, Germany, on July 1, 2017.

SHELLY “Shelito’s Way” VINCENT (21-1, 1 KO), of Providence, RI, clashes with Budapest, Hungary’s EDINA “DNA” KISS (14-6, 8 KOs). Riding a three-fight winning streak following her memorable nationally televised battle with Heather Hardy in 2016, Vincent returns to Foxwoods after an eight-round decision victory against Calixta Silgado on October 28, 2017. Kiss will be looking to jump back into the win column following a hard-fought split decision loss to WBO women’s featherweight champion Cindy Serrano on October 14, 2017, at Barclays Center in Brooklyn.

Fast-rising super lightweight prospect “Marvelous” MYKQUAN WILLIAMS (10-0, 6 KOs), of East Hartford, CT, will fight for his first title, challenging Puerto Rico’s ORLANDO FELIX (12-1-1, 4 KOs), for the vacant WBC USNBC Silver Championship over eight rounds. The popular 20-year-old Williams has become a fixture at Foxwoods where he will be fighting for the ninth time, his last two fights resulting in first-round knockouts. Seeking to keep his winning streak alive, Felix returns to action following a unanimous decision victory versus Juan Carlos Contreras on December 21, 2017.

In a battle of undefeated welterweight prospects, KHIRY “TNT” TODD (7-0, 5 KOs), of Lynn, MA, will compete against Lawrence, MA, native ADRIAN SOSA (6-0, 5 KOs), in a scheduled six-rounder. Todd began 2018 with a shutout six-round decision victory against Samuel Vasquez on January 26, in Melrose, MA. On the same card, Sosa scored a second-round knockout of Bryan Goldsby.

Undefeated HURSHIDBEK NORMATOV (5-0, 2 KO’s), of Brooklyn, NY, will face RONALD “Salvaje” MONTES (18-8, 16 KOs), of Barranquilla, Colombia, in a six-round middleweight bout. The 26-year-old Normatov impressed New York City fight fans on December 14, 2017, earning a six-round decision against then-undefeated Nicklaus Flaz.

Highly touted and undefeated junior lightweight IRVIN GONZALEZ JR. (9-0, 8 KOs), of Worcester, MA, will square off against JONATHAN “Popeye” PEREZ (37-20, 29 KOs), of Barranquilla, Colombia.
