ESPN’s Friday Night Fights takes over The Prudential Center’s Amerihealth Pavilion in Newark, New Jersey, this Friday May 20th. Joel “Love Child” Julio and Sadam “World Kid” Ali are the headliners of the latest installment in the Brick City Boxing Series, promoted by Main Events. ESPN’s broadcast begins at 9pm ET/6pm PT.
Julio was scheduled to take on Antwone Smith in the main event. Due to an elbow injury sustained by Smith, Anges Adjaho (25-5, 14 KO), who is 1-4 dating back to 2009, has been chosen as the opponent to welcome Julio back to the welterweight division. Joel Julio (36-4, 31 KO) last fought in August of 2010, winning a 10-round unanimous decision over junior middleweight journeyman Jamaal Davis, following last April’s TKO loss to Alfredo Angulo.
Opening up the broadcast will be welterweight prospect Sadam Ali (12-0, 7 KO), taking on junior welterweight journeyman John Revish, in a scheduled 8-round bout.
