Although at first glance Promoter Andre Kut's KEA Boxing's first show in North Jersey doesn't stand out, a closer examination yields the makings of a high quality show. The show will take place next Friday June 25th at the Hanover Marriott in Whippany New Jersey. Kut announced the fights and introduced many of the fighters at the press conference yesterday, which took place at the classy Sienna restaurant in Kinnelon, New Jersey. Siena's owner Steve Derricks supplied excellent food for the presser, and Ross Thompson and the rest of the fighters in attendance guaranteed excellent action come fight night.

In the main event, Ross "The Boss" Thompson (26-9-2, 17 KOs) will be taking on Rico Cason (16-10-2, 4 KOs). In his last appearance Thompson dropped a close ten-round decision to world title contender Antwun Echols on the undercard of the Manny Pacquiao-Juan Manuel Marquez title fight in Las Vegas. "Thompson is a talented fighter who has suffered tough losses in bouts that could have catapulted him to the next level," states his promoter, Kut. "He knows that it is now or never if he's serious about his goals. I believe in him and that's the reason I have him jumping right back into the ring after the Echols fight." Thomson stated that the plan was to fight Cason at 160 and then in his next fight get right back into 154 pound class and back in the mix with the top fighters in the division, something he is very capable of doing.
