It begins June 5: Antonio Johnson, sometimes of St Paul, will fight on the undercard of the Celaya-Cortes bout at the HP Pavilion in San Jose, CA. Johnson says that it’s too soon to know who his opponent will be, but he’s looking forward to the activity following a yearlong layoff.
One day later, June 6 will see Anthony Bonsante’s return to the ring (against former title holder Carl Daniels) after a heel injury idled him all spring. Allen Litzau will fight for the first time in over a year, and Kenny Kost returns to the ring for his first fight after a disappointing loss to the pudgy but effective Hector Camacho Jr. This all takes place at Grand Casino Hinckley on June 6, with additional fights on the undercard including Phil Williams and Wilton Hilario, and more.
Finally, on June7, Zach Walters and Andy Kolle are the stars of a 5-fight card at the Wessman Arena in Superior, WI. This event is expected to mark Walters’ first defense of his WBC-ABU light heavyweight title and Kolle’s first return to the ring since his much-hyped defeat of Matt Vanda last November.
