There will be two other televised fights and local promoter Amber Bishop, Bishop Promotions will add five more local and regional matchups to the largest boxing event ever showcased in Shreveport-Bossier City. Local fighters, Kendrick Williams, Ariel Juarez and Blake Franklin on the card. Kendrick Williams from Shreveport, with Karate Mafia, will be making his pro boxing debut.
