Former WBA super welterweight champion Yuri Foreman returns to the square circle.
Saturday June 19, the Underground Showdown returns to Buckhead Fight Club, presented by B.F.C The Last Round and Real Azul Tequila.
A full evening of boxing action is scheduled, headlined by former WBA super welterweight champ Yuri Foreman battling Jimmy Williams for the ABF super welter title, and Buckhead Fight Club’s own Abel Aparicio defending his 126-pound ABF title in his first home fight appearance.
The talent packed card includes Eric Moon, super middleweight; Floyd Schofield Jr. super featherweight;
Nafear Charles, lightweight; Mikhail Montgomery, feather weight; Christian Steele, super lightweight; Brandon Quarles, middleweight; Keedric White vs. Jalen Woodmore; Hendri Cedeno Martinez, super lightweight; Tahmir Smalls, welterweight; Morgan Griggle, and the pro debut of female fighter Melody Popravak vs. Nina Gallegos at 165 pounds.
“We’re really bringing the action with these fights,” promoter Terri Moss said. “Yuri Foreman is a great champion and a real fan favorite. It’s also exciting to have Abel Aparicio in a fight here in Atlanta for the first time, and as a former female champion, I’m always eager to have a female on a card, and Melody Popravak is ranked #6 in the world, so she’s coming to make a statement in her first pro bout.”
Buckhead Fight Club is located at 3293 NE Buford Hwy. #500. Tickets for the Underground Showdown are available at www.buckheadfightclub.com/event-details/underground-showdown-professional-boxing-series
