With former World Champion Bronco McKart sidelined by a rib injury recently sustained in training, Gary, Indiana’s Derrick “Superman” Findley will step in to battle Detroit’s own J’Leon Love at the Masonic Temple Theatre in Detroit on Saturday, February 23 in a 10-round middleweight bout which will be telecast live on SHOWTIME®at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT (delayed on the West Coast).

 

In the main event on SHOWTIME, Detroit’s CorneliusK9″ Bundrage will defend his IBF Junior Middleweight World Championship against Las Vegas’ Ishe “Sugar Shay” Smith.

 

This exciting evening of world championship boxing is presented by Golden Boy Promotions and Mayweather Promotions and is sponsored by Corona and MGM Grand Detroit.  The SHOWTIME telecast begins at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT (delayed on the West Coast).

 

Tickets priced at $200, $125, $100, $75, $50 and $25, plus applicable taxes, fees and services charges are on sale now and are available for purchase at the Masonic Temple box office, online at www.ticketmaster.com, all Ticketmaster locations or by calling 800-745-3000.

 

Detroit’s J’Leon Love (14-0, 8 KO’s) took his game to the next level in 2012, going five for five with two knockouts, two dominant decisions and a disqualification win.  How will the 25-year-old former amateur star top that in 2013?  Odds are that he will find a way with his ever-expanding skill set and exciting style, both of which will be on display on February 23 against Derrick Findley.

 

Derrick “Superman” Findley (20-8, 13 KO’s) is a tough out for anyone he faces.  Currently sporting a two fight winning streak that includes a blistering second round knockout of Ronald Hearns that took place in Taylor, Michigan last October, the 28-year-old road warrior has no problem facing Love in his opponent’s backyard on February 23.
