Warner, of Philadelphia has a record of 6-4-2 with one knockout’s but has a record of 4-1 since he took more then a decade off from the ring.
He is more then capable as he has victories over Craig Tomlinson (5-0), Terrence Lewis (3-0) and this past January won a majority decision over the well regarded Dave Brunelli (6-1). He also held one-time Shannon Briggs conqueror, Darroll Wilson to a draw.
Abell, 15-1 with all of his wins coming by knockout has built up a big following at The Legendary Blue Horizon despite being a native of Minneapolis, Minnesota.
Abell has been extremely active in 2007 as this will be his seventh start (6-0, 6 KO’s) since his only blemish which came last December when he stopped in controversial fashion by Arron Lyons at The Legendary Blue Horizon.
Abell is coming off a first round stoppage over Mike Sheppard in a bout that took place on August 4th in Chicago on the widely watched David Diaz-Erik Morales Pay-Per-View event.
There also will be a ceremony to honor Philadelphia’s latest world champion, Steve “USS” Cunningham.
