Headlining the Warriors Boxing and Bad Dog Productions, in association with the Magic City Casino, event entitled “Friday Night Fights at Magic City Casino” will be a 12-round super featherweight main event between Miami’s own Rances “Kid Blast” Barthelemy (17-0, 11 KOs), currently ranked #5 in the world by the IBF, against fellow undefeated prospect and Afghani-Canadian Arash Usmanee (20-0, 10 KOs), who is ranked #8 in the world by the WBA.
