Dover Downs Hotel & Casino will host the IBF North American Middleweight Title Fight as part of the Friday Night Fight series on August 27 in the Rollins Center ballroom. Fights begin at 7:30 p.m.
Terrance “Heat” Cauthen (35-6, 9 KOs) of Trenton, N.J., will face off against Ahmad “Babyface” Kaddour (22-2-1, 9 KOs) of Aarhus, Denmark, in this long-awaited, 12-round match.
An action-packed under card features a heavyweight bout with massive Amir “Hardcore” Mansour of Wilmington , Del. , who will re-enter the ring with a stellar 9-0 record, 6 KOs.
Mansour intends to prove his talent when he crosses the ropes again for the first time since 2001. “Nobody can match my speed, my size. I’ve got a Lamborghini body, blessed with good genes. I am in better shape now than at 28.”
The night will continue with great talent on the road to championships including middleweight “Mighty” Mike Tiberi (13-1, 6 KOs), of Smyrna, Del., currently on a seven-win streak, and relentless super bantamweight Ronica “Sweet Trouble” Jeffrey of Brooklyn, N.Y., undefeated at 3-0 with 1 KO, in what promises to be another exciting female bout.
Big man cruiserweight Dan “Bada Bing” Biddle of Hockessin, Del., returns to Dover with 3 wins – all by knock out – and 1 loss. Biddle TKO’d Eddie Otts in 2:04 minutes of the opening round in last February’s sold out show at Dover Downs Hotel & Casino.
Rounding out the card are light heavyweight Anthony “Caputo” Smith, undefeated (4-0, 3 KOs), light middleweight “Rockin” Ryan Belasco (11-4-3, 3 KOs), light welterweight Juan Oscar “El Bandito” Vasquez (4-1), super middleweight southpaw Gabriel Pham, undefeated (3-0, 2 KOs), and newcomer featherweight “Jolt’n” Joey Tiberi, Jr., who, in his debut fight on July 2 in Vineland, N.J., won by knockout against Javier Dennis.
