A year ago knockout artist Joe Julio, 36-4 (31), of Monteria, Colombia, now out of Miami, FL, was in a war with Alfredo Angulo for the interim WBO light middleweight title before he was stopped in the eleventh round. In August he made his debut at the Prudential Center in Newark, NJ, for his promoter Kathy Duva of Main Events defeating Philadelphia’s Jamal Davis over 10 rounds. This Friday Julio is back at the Center against Anges Adjaho, 24-5 (14), of Cotonou, Benin, now out of Buffalo, NY in the main event match over 10 rounds.

For Julio he will be coming down to the welterweight division taking on Adjaho who lost his last fight fighting for the NABF welterweight title losing to Shawn Porter in February over 10 rounds. If Julio can bring that punching power down to a lower weight class it could be devastating. The last time he made 147 was in 2006 fighting in a WBA eliminator match.

Fan favorite 2008 Olympian Sadam “World Kid” Ali, 12-0 (7), of Brooklyn, NY, will be in the semi-windup welterweight bout over 8 rounds against John “Renegade” Revish, 10-3 (8), of Baton Rouge, LA, who a year ago fought to a draw with Jason Pires, 22-3. Ali has fought his last 5 fights at the Center being 6-0 overall there. Revish had his 8 bout winning streak stopped with the draw.

On the under card will be local favorites Jose Peralta Alejo, of Jersey City, 6-1 (4), and Joel Castillo, 8-0 (5), of the Bronx, in 6 rounder’s, Vinny O’Brien, 2-0 (2), of East Hanover, NJ, Angel Concepcion, 4-0 (0), of Newark and Tyrone Luckey, 3-0 (3) of Middletown, NJ, all in 4 rounder’s. Always a fun night at the Center!
