Anthony Laureano returns to Resorts World Catskills, putting his ABO America’s Super Lightweight belt on the line, in his first title defense against, BRIAN “SWEET” JONES in a scheduled 8-round super lightweight bout. Laureano recently defeated, Dieumerci Nzau, in a thrilling bout on by sixth round TKO to win the ABO title.

Jones (Clarksville, TX 15-10 9KO’s) has experience against some of the top guys in the division including Ivan Redkach, Thomas Dulorme and various undefeated prospects. Fans can expect to be on their feet throughout, as any time Laureano steps into the ring, it is all action.
