The professional segment of the card is scheduled to be headlined by Trinidad and Tobago-based Guyanese, Dexter Gonsalves (5-1, 2, 2 KOs) and Barbadian Revlon Lake (6-8, 2, 1 KO) for the local junior lightweight title. Lake, the former national lightweight champion, is on a three-fight losing streak while Gonsalves has not fought since 2009.

Both boxers will be looking to resuscitate their respective careers. An all-out brawl is envisioned.

The undercard will feature debutants Laured ‘Nightmare’ Stewart and Romeo Norville.  Stewart will take on Anson Green in a four-round welterweight fight while Norville will face Eversley Brown in a middleweight contest also scheduled for four rounds.

Troy Lewis (4-16, 1, 2 KOs) will also make his return to the ring; he will face the hard-hitting Berbician, Kelsey George in a four-round super middleweight rematch. Lewis defeated the Berbician in his debut bout in September 2011.

George (0-6) will be aiming to turn the tables on Lewis and record his first professional victory while Lewis will be looking for his fifth win since turning pro in 1999.

Former world rater, Leon ‘Hurry Up’ Moore (29-2, 23 KOs), Errol Trotman, Shahid Alli and his United States of America opponent, Alan Phelan are also slated to do battle on the card. Moore will take on Fraser in an eight-round match up while Alli will face Phelan over four rounds.
