In the main event, world ranked Lightweight, “Hammerin” Hank Lundy takes on Ray Beltran.

Andrews of Stuarts Draft, Virginia has a record of 3-1-3 with one knockout and will be facing his fourth undefeated fighter. In his last bout, Andrews dropped a four round majority decision to undefeated Kevin Womack Jr. on Februry 11th”
“It’s a big night for 'Juice' to be fighting at home”, said Young’s manager Rich Masini. “We have a lot of respect for Andrews as we know he is a tough guy who is coming to win. We haven’t given Anthony any easy fights and this is another tough fight”.
“Anthony has such a good work ethic that we believe that we can get four more fights and make it 10-0 before the year is out. 'Juice' is already looking for big fights and its my job to know when it is time for that”.
Because of his success, Young already has acquired many sponsors such as Hard Energy Drink (Greg Posella & Jason Frankovich), Sticky Entertainment Group (Robert Henricks & Cody Masino), A-One (Anthony Priester) who is a rapper who will be walking "Juice" to the ring.
“It helps a lot that 'Juice' has tremendous family support from his mother Rosa, father Teany and Uncle Bucky.
“We have a great team in place with trainer Ray McCline, Joe Alvarano and my partner Paul Pape as well as our Heavyweight John Lennox who we expect back in action in August”.
