Brandon Adams Takes on Sonny Duversonne on Ring City USA
Junior middleweight contender Brandon Adams (21-3, 13 KO's) will now be put to the test against Sonny Duversonne (11-2-2, 8 KO's) in the eight-round main event of Ring City USA's second fight card airing live from Wild Card Boxing Club on Dec. 3 at 9 p.m. EST/6 p.m. PST on NBCSN.
Duversonne replaces the hard-hitting Serhii Bohachuck (18-0, 18 KO's), who was forced to pull out of the fight after he joined the growing list of professional athletes who have tested positive for Covid-19. Bohachuck hopes to reschedule his highly anticipated matchup against Adams for early 2021.
Adams, who is promoted by Banner Promotions and The Tournament of Contenders, enters the ring on Dec. 3 for the first time since June 2019, when he challenged Jermall Charlo for the WBC Middleweight Title. Adams has sparred with the likes of Shawn Porter and Gennadiy Golovkin.
"I am grateful that the show continues," Adams said. "It is unfortunate that Bohachuck got sick, but the show goes on. I am excited to be the first big name fighter to fight on this new series, and I look forward to putting on a great performance.
The undercard action remains, with former Olympian hopeful Brian Ceballo facing off against Larry Gomez in a 10-round welterweight challenge. Standout female heavyweight contender Danielle Perkins will fight the undefeated Princess Hairston in a six-round matchup. In an eight-round welterweight matchup, Gor Yeritsyan will face Mahonri Montes
