vs. Alvarez Title Eliminator Undercard
Undefeated, Haitian born, Long Island super welterweight
WENDY "HAITIAN FIRE" TOUSSAINT (11-0 5KO's) has been making
a name for himself in the tri-state area since his pro-debut
at Star Boxing's "Rockin' Fights" series.
Now, the 28-year old Toussaint will lace them up in Las
Vegas for the first time in his toughest test to date,
against Detroit's ISIAH JONES (9-2 3KO's). The bout will
take place on the undercard of Toussaint's fellow Long
Island sparring partner and Star Boxing stablemate, #4 world
rated (WBO) light heavyweight, JOE "THE BEAST" SMITH JR.'s
(25-3 2KO's) WBO World Title Eliminator against #3 world
rated (WBO) light heavyweight, ELEIDER "STORM" ALVAREZ
Toussaint has found dynamite in his hands as of late,
winning five of his last six bouts by knockout. This past
February, Toussaint took on the always tough Jermaine Corley
at The Paramount. With his full arsenal on display,
Toussaint disposed Corley via second round TKO after a
vicious uppercut, followed by a right hand.
Watch the full fight, HERE. Toussaint had this to say about
the opportunity, "I am ready to fight. I am always ready to
fight. Nothing changes for me. The Haitian Fire is ready,
Jones will be making his third straight appearance at The
Bubble, against his fourth consecutive undefeated opponent.
In his most recent bout, Jones earned a tough fought
majority decision over previously unbeaten Donte Stubbs. The
26-year-old Detroit native will look to keep the momentum on
"Wendy is a talented boxer," said Star Boxing CEO JOE
DEGUARDIA, "he has a very high ring IQ and power in both
hands. He has tremendous potential. Jones will be a great
test for Wendy."
