26-year-old bantamweight James Gordon Smith (10-0, 6 KOs) of Detroit was last seen at a previous Detroit Brawl, on May 14 of this year, going to electrifying war against Mexico’s tough Pablo Cupul. Smith won a unanimous six-round decision and the hearts of the fans with his thrilling back-and-forth victory.
21-year-old bantamweight Jarico O’Quinn (3-0, 2 KOs) of Detroit was last in the ring on August 6 in Temecula, California, winning a unanimous four-round decision over local product Johnathan Quiroz on CBS Sports Network.
29-year-old super welterweight Serdar Hudayberdiyev (3-0, 2 KOs) of Brooklyn, New York via Turkmenabat, Turkmenistan, was last seen on July 16 of this year at yet another Detroit Brawl, winning a four-round unanimous decision over formerly undefeated Steven Andrade.
28-year-old super middleweight Dorell Van Horn Jr. (9-1, 6 KOs) of Detroit will be looking to rebound from suffering his first career loss in August of this year. Fighting on the undercard of a Showtime-televised event, Van Horn dropped an action-packed four-round unanimous decision to New York veteran Henry Beckford at Rhinos Stadium in Rochester, New York.
29-year-old cruiserweight Alexey Zubov (12-1, 7 KOs) of Brooklyn, New York via Magnitogorsk, Russia, last fought in August was well. Zubov won a unanimous six-round decision over Eric George at the same Showtime show at Rhino’s Stadium.
“I am proud of The Detroit Brawl and the fighter development and action for the fans the series provides,” said Dmitriy Salita. “We have several popular fighters returning from Detroit and around the world and they’ll all be in tough fights to further their careers and keep the Detroit fans on the edge of their seats. I’m also proud to announce that this show, like all the Forgotten Harvest, one of the nation’s largest food rescue organizations. The last show was able to donate over 3000 meals to worthy families.”
