The show will begin at 7:30 pm eastern time.

Ennis of Philadelphia has a record of 17-0 with eleven knockouts and is coming off his title winning effort when he stopped Victor Lares in seven rounds this past November 19th in a bout that was seen all over the world on

In his previous fight he scored a third round stoppage over Reggie Pena on August 28th in Atlantic City as he is quickly becoming a force in the loaded Super Middleweight division.

The twenty-eight year old has a very diverse style as he has won fights by displaying his terrific boxing ability while in other bouts he has shown awesome knockout power like the aforementioned bouts.

In those bouts, Ennis has stopped Emanuel Gonzalez (9-6) in three rounds, Frankie Santos (17-8-4) in two rounds, Steve Walker (24-24) in one round and Ennis stopped grizzled veteran Demetrius Davis (20-23-5) in three rounds on July 30th in Philadelphia.

The twenty-seven year old Ennis turned pro in February of 2006 by scoring a second round stoppage over Sylvester Golding in Philadelphia.

Johnson of Oxon Hill, Maryland is perfect as he sports a 10-0 mark with four wins coming via knockout.

Johnson has been a fixture on the Beltway Boxing circuit as he has spent his pro career winning fights in Maryland and Washington, D.C.

He has a couple of signature wins such as a four round unanimous decision over Zeferino Albino which was seen live all over the United States on ESPN 2 and in his last bout, Johnson scored a second round stoppage over Andre Espuett on November 6th.

In the co-feature, explosive knockout artist, Amir “Hardcore” Mansour will take on grizzled veteran Hector Ferreyro in a bout scheduled for eight rounds.

Mansour has a record of 12-0 with nine knockouts and has quickly re-established himself as one of most devastating punchers in the Heavyweight division.

Mansour won his fist nine bouts before taking almost nine years off.  Since he has returned he has scored three of the most vicious knockouts in recent memory.

On August 27th, he annihilated Samuel Brown in two rounds when he landed a shot that dumped Brown face first on the canvas.  After taking out Joseph Rabotte in three, Mansour knocked Alexis Mejias out cold in round two of their February 25th bout.

Ferreyro of has a record of 21-9-2 with twelve knockouts is the most experienced for that Mansour will have faced to this point it looks to be his sternest test.

The native of Laredo, Texas has shared the ring cagey vets such as Dominic Jenkins, he holds a win over undefeated Leo Nolan (26-0); Kendrick Relford; Cisse Salif ( W via U dec); He won the IBC Heavyweight title with a twelve round unanimous decision over Arron Lyons.

Ferreyro will be looking to get back in the win column after he lost a ten round split decision Homero Fonseca on November 6th

In a second eight round co-feature, Heavyweights Damian Wills and Arron Lyons will tussle in what could be an entertaining scrap.

Wills of Los Angeles has a record 29-2-1 with twenty two knockouts is once again on the cusp of a major opportunity.

Wills won his first twenty-one bouts which included wins over Yaqui Diaz (13-3) and Salif.

He stepped up to face fellow unbeaten Chris Arreola as part of the Floyd Mayweather – Carlos Bladomir undercard and engaged in a toe to toe war before being stopped in seven by the future world title challenger.

Two fights later, Wills dropped a ten round unanimous decision to yet another undefeated future title challenger in Kevin Johnson before embarking on his currant seven fight winning streak which includes his latest outing when he stopped former Super Middleweight title challenger Rubin Williams.

Lyons of Las Cruces, New Mexico has a record of 12-9-1 with nine knockouts, should not be taken lightly as he has sprung the upset in the past.

Lyons has wins over then undefeated Joey Abell (9-0); two wins over Gabe Brown (18-6-3) and his last bout when he scored a shocking fourth round stoppage over Lenroy Thomas on December 11th.

The rest of the card will feature some great fights and prospects.
