Two former world title challengers, Angel “Toro” Hernandez and Antwun Echols, meet in a crossroads fight, Friday, August 21st, at the Horseshoe Casino in Hammond, IN.

Both fighters have challenged for world titles and have a combined 84 fights with 43 knockouts. 

Echols, for his part, is promising a big win to launch himself back into title contention.

The hard hitting Hernandez, (29-7, 16 KO’s), upset hot prospect James McGirt Jr. earlier this year on ESPN 2.  Hernandez looks to rack-up an impressive victory over Echols, in a fight that promises bell-to-bell action.

Rounding-out the card is Indiana’s fighting Cook brothers, Nick (15-1) and Jason (3-0 ), Heavyweight, MMA scrapper, Tim Martin (1-0) and former Chicago Golden Gloves champion Ninos Abraham (3-0), David Thomas (7-1)  and Mike Kurzeja (2-0).

Tickets are $30, $40 and $90.  Call 800-745-3000.  Doors open at 6:30 pm with the first bout starting at 7:30 pm.  You must be 21 years or older to attend this casino show.  Wild Bill’s Boxing is promoting in association with Hitz Entertainment. “Boxing, It’s Better Live!”
