At 11 p.m. ET/PT (delayed on the West Coast) from Chumash Casino Resort, Santa Ynez, Calif.
NEW YORK (Feb. 1, 2011) – Undefeated lightweight prospect Archie Ray Marquez suffered an injury during training and was forced to pull out of his scheduled bout against Marvin Quintero on this Friday’s ShoBox: The New Generation on SHOWTIME®.
The scheduled main event and co-feature remain intact. The telecast begins at 11 p.m. ET/PT (delayed on the West Coast). The Marquez-Quintero bout will not be replaced.
In the 10-round main event, undefeated featherweight prospect and Cuban Olympian Luis Franco (8-0, 5 KOs) will look to take another giant step towards challenging for a world title in 2011 when he takes on veteran Leonilo Miranda (26-2, 25 KOs).
In a co-feature worthy of main event billing, crowd-pleasing, Freddie Roach-trained Lateef Kayode (15-0, 14 KOs) will be looking for his 15th consecutive knockout as he squares off against Tampa native Nicholas Iannuzzi (16-1, 9 KOs) in a 10-round cruiserweight bout.
Who will win? Wladimir Klitschko or Tyson Fury?
