Dib vs. Evans Showdown Headlines
Buffalo Run Fight Card April 21
World-ranked junior lightweight Billel “Babyface” Dib and
former WBC Youth titlist Yuandale “Money Shot” Evans will
square off in an important ten round bout Friday, April 21
at the Buffalo Run Casino In Miami, OK.
Hailing from Sydney, Australia, Dib has an outstanding 21-1
record with 10 victories by knockout. Currently ranked #7 by
the WBO and #13 by the WBA, Dib impressed in his debut at
the Buffalo Run Casino last December, outpointing Colombian
contender Carlos Padilla over eight rounds. A victory on the
21st will move him closer to fighting for a world title.
Living and fighting out of Cleveland, OH, Evans is 18-1 with
14 KO's. He has eight first round knockouts and captured the
WBC Youth title via fifth round KO of Ruslan Berchuk in his
native Russia. Defeating the highly-regarded Dib would put
Evans in the picture at 130 pounds.
Middleweight Charles Conwell fights for the first time as a
pro against an opponent to be named in the four round
co-feature. The 19-year-old represented the United States in
Rio at the 2016 US Olympics and is now a member of Holden
Productions' “Four State Franchise” team. Named Ohio's
Amateur Athlete of the Year for his remarkable 2016, Conwell
has a fan-friendly style that is expected to quickly make
him a crowd favorite.
“We are pleased not only for Charles Conwell's pro debut but
also to have a quality main event between two very good
fighters,” said Tony Holden. “Charles is already generating
buzz locally and the fans are eager to see him in action.”
Kenzie Witt-Morrison of Tulsa, OK looks to avenge a prior
draw against Oklahoma City native Aaron Chavers, 7-2-1 (3
KO's), in six round heavyweight rematch. The son of late
heavyweight champion Tommy Morrison and half brother of
fellow “Four State Franchise” member Trey Lippe-Morrison,
Witt-Morrison is 10-0-2 and has 9 victories by knockout.
Undefeated welterweight Jarrett "The Legacy" Rouse of
Bartlesville, OK will face an opponent to be named.
Representing the “Four State Franchise,” Rouse is a
multi-sport standout, compiling a 10-0-1 record with 4 KO's
in the ring along with a 3-0 professional record as a mixed
martial artist. In December 2016, he scored a career best
victory by outpointing once-beaten Shadi Shawareb.
Dillon "White Lightning" Cook was also scheduled to appear
but had to withdraw due to an elbow injury.
Opponents and additional bouts will be announced shortly.
