Guillermo Jones (37-3-2, 29KOs) will defend his WBA title belt this Saturday, November 5th against former heavyweight Michael Marrone (20-3, 15KOs). The bout will take place at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Florida.
At 39-years-old, Jones is ranked 13th among cruiserweights and will be making his second title defense. In 2005 Jones lost to Steve “USS” Cunningham by SD but has won all six bouts since, five of those by TKO. In his last fight, Jones defeated Valery Brudov with an 11th round technical knockout.
Marrone had a successful amateur career and went on to win 18 consecutive bouts in the heavyweight division. But most recently, he’s suffered losses in three of his last five fights. Marrone is coming down in weight to the cruiserweight division hoping his power and quick hands will be more effective at this level.
WealthTV will be featuring this main event with coverage beginning at 8pm ET. Undercard bouts will feature Super Welterweights Joey Hernandez vs. Elco Garcia, Super Lightweights Angelo Santana vs. Broderick Antoine & Super Middleweights Gusmyr Perdomo vs. Lafarrell Bunting.
