Fight Details:

Main Event: Stiverne, a Florida resident of Haitian descent, first met California-based, Mexican-American Arreola last April for the right to challenge then-Heavyweight titleholder Vitali Klitschko for the WBC belt. Stiverne scored a 12-round unanimous decision win earning the right to face Klitschko. After Klitschko vacated his title in December to focus on his political career in Ukraine, Stiverne and Arreola were chosen to fill the vacant title. The two will not only battle for the vacant WBC World Heavyweight title, but also to become the first boxers of Haitian or Mexican descent to hold a Heavyweight title.

Co-Feature: Friday's eight-round co-feature will pit undefeated Junior Welterweight Amir "Young Master" Imam (13-0, 12 KOs), against Yordenis "The Black Prince" Ugás (15-2, 7 KOs).
