LOS ANGELES (May 17, 2016) — 2015 Boxcino Heavyweight Champion Andrey Fedosov (28-3, 23 KO’s) is working hard in Los Angeles for his ring return on Saturday, June 11.
Fedosov of Shuya, Russia is riding a four-bout winning streak and will face upstart Mario Heredia (11-1, 9 KO’s, 11 KO’s) live on SHO EXTREME (7 p.m. ET/PT) from The Turning Stone Resort Casino in Verona, N.Y. The fight precedes a SHOWTIME CHAMPIONSHIP BOXING tripleheader featuring Ruslan Provodnikov against John Molina Jr. in a 12-round junior welterweight bout in the main event.
Fedosov has been idle nursing some lingering injuries since winning the Boxcino finals, when he stopped Donovan Dennis in eight rounds on May 22, 2015.
Now he is back training at the Wild Card Gym and ready to take on Heredia.
“I’ve been sparring with some of the best heavyweights in the world and I feel after this fight, I will fight one of the big names if not one of the champions in the heavyweight division. I will be ready to fight for a title after this fight.”
Fedosov, who is currently ranked No. 9 by the WBA, will be defending his WBA Fedelatin title.
Heredia of Distrital, Federal, Mexico has a record of 11-1 with nine knockouts (1-2, 1 KO in WSB) was slated to compete in the Boxcino tournament before an injury took him out of the competition before it started.
Provodnikov-Molina Jr. will headline a tripleheader live on SHOWTIME CHAMPIONSHIP BOXING (9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT) that will also feature a WBC Super Welterweight Elimination bout between Demetrius Andrade and Willie Nelson, plus a battle for the vacant WBC Lightweight World Championship that will pit No. 1 Dejan Zlaticanin against No. 2 Emiliano Marsili.
Tickets for the live event, which is promoted by Banner Promotions, Inc., are priced at $85, $60, $45 and $35 and are on sale now. Tickets can be purchased in person at the Turning Stone Box Office, by calling 877.833.SHOW, or online at Ticketmaster (www.ticketmaster.com.
