CHICAGO, IL, May 20, 2011 – 8 Count Productions stormed the UIC Pavilion with an exciting evening of fights highlighted by an explosive bout between Andrzej “The Polish Prince” Fonfara and the durable Canadian Anthony Russell for the WBO and NABO Light Heavyweight titles. Other highlights of the stacked card included a messy Indiana showdown between Middleweights Josh Crouch and Keon Johnson; a rematch between Jaime Herrera (coming off his first loss) and Eric Draper, out to avenge his loss to Herrera in their first outing; and the Windy City Fight Night debut of undefeated Middleweight Ninos Abraham.

The majority of the round was spent with both boxers fighting inside, launching punishing hooks to the body, most of which bounced off arms and elbows, to try to find a home for uppercuts and hooks to the head.
