CORONA, Calif. (May 12, 2015) – Omega Products International, the nation’s leading stucco manufacturer, will be a part of boxing history on Friday, May 22.
The Omega Products Outdoor Arena will function as the backdrop to the final ESPN Boxing broadcast of the storied “Friday Night Fights” program that launched in the fall of 1998. The network has a new program in development that will broadcast 11 events next year on its main ESPN channel, and one afternoon broadcast on ABC.
The final telecast features two excellent fights in the heavyweight and junior middleweight divisions (ESPN2 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT).
“This is a special event for everyone involved,” said Todd Martin, vice president and general manager at Omega Products. “For ESPN, it’s the end of an era, but also the start of something new. We received tremendous exposure from these shows and will continue to host boxing events in the future.”
Heavyweight talents Donovan Dennis (14-2, 11 KOs) of Cleveland, Ohio and Andrey Fedosov (27-3, 22 KOs) of Russia will meet in a 10-round fight to determine the 2015 Boxcino Heavyweight Champion, a tournament style competition that began in January.
Junior middleweight Brandon Adams (16-1, 12 KOs) of Los Angeles faces the smooth boxing skills of John Thompson (16-1, 5 KOs) of Newark, New Jersey in the 10-round championship that decides the 154 lb. champion.
