Spadafora’s (38-0-1, 15 KOs), ring return is the beginning of a personal quest to win another world title -- this time in the junior welterweight division. He captured the IBF world lightweight title in 1999, upsetting the heavily-favored Israel Cardona, winning a lopsided decision. After successfully defending his world championship belt eight times during his four-year reign, he vacated the title to move up to the 140-pound division.
An undercard will be announced in the near future.
Tickets, which go on sale Tomorrow! Tuesday, October 24, are priced at $60 (Golden Ringside), $40 (Ringside) and $20 (General Admission). They can be purchased at The Avalon Hotel, Dee’s Cigar Store, Johnny’s Sports Bar and Ringside Restaurant.
