Jarvis is currently putting together what will be a star studded night and to this end approaches have already been made to a brace of boxing's biggest names including two former world champions to headline the event.
Later this week one of his team, Gianluca 'Rio' Di Caro, flies to London, England for discussions with various British and European fighters as the card will have a distinct international feel about it with around half the card consisting of fighters from outside the USA, mainly from South
America and Europe.
On the planned spectacular Jarvis says "We will be putting on a real show, something special for boxing fans. Just like our Salem fight night it's going to be non-stop action. We have already started a national and world-wide search for suitable opponents. We intend to find the most exciting fighters we can for this special event, ones that will give 100% from start to finish. Don't think that means there will be no local favorites though. No way would we ignore committed, entertaining fighters like Mark 'Oaktree' Brown and Willie 'For Real' Williams who put on an awesome show at Salem. The same as I wouldn't ignore any local fighter who is suitable. We want to make sure that both opponents in each fight are evenly matched not only by record but also by their entertainment value."
Further announcements will follow over the coming few weeks as the location and fighters are secured.
