WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — Fight fans get ready! Ring of Dreams presents Fight Night Saturday, April 14, 2007, at the LJVM Coliseum Annex in Winston-Salem, North Carolina at 8:00 p.m. Undefeated Super Middleweight Derek “The Black Lion” Edwards (20-0-0) will square off against the also undefeated Joe Green (14-0-0) in a showdown that is sure to rock the house. Which man will walk away with a perfect record, and which will face his first loss?
In another match sure to ignite the room, Carlette “The Truth” Ewell will return to the ring on a mission to reclaim her title and #1 status in the world. Carlette will face off against Alexandra “Sweet and Sour” Maloy in a showdown for the vacant Universal Boxing Council (UBC) Cruiser weight world title. Previously, Carlette fought as a Super Middleweight, but she’s added muscle and size and now seeks to dominate at the Cruiserweight level. This could be her breakout bout in this new weight class.
Fans will get to see all of their Ring of Dreams favorites, plus a pair of newcomers in their debut professional fight. Fan favorite Ijeoma “The Praise” Egbunine (12-2-0) of Marietta GA will take on Veronica Rucker (4-6-1) of Cleveland, OH, and new heavyweight Ryan McClure will challenge Corey Whittfield to see who will earn the first win of his professional career.
