In the main event, Ty Barnett take on former world title challenger Daniel Attah in a Super Lightweight battle scheduled for 8-rounds.

Barnett of Washington, D.C. has a record of 22-4-1 with 14 knockouts.

Attah of Washington, D.C via Nigeria has a record of 28-21-1 with 11 knockouts.

Barnett is excited and honored to be headlining in front of his hometown fans against a former world title challenger.

“Everything is going great in training.  Attah is a cagey veteran, who is a southpaw that fights everyone.  He has gone the distance with a lot of good fighters such as “Chop Chop” Corley.  He was an Olympian in 1996, but he is no threat to me,” said Barnett.

“It means a lot to me to headline at home here in Washington.  I can fight in front a lot of my family and friends.”

Barnett knows that with a couple wins, a big opportunity can arise in the 140-pound division.

“This is just a steppingstone fight for me.  I am not a guy who picks and chooses opponents.  I want to fight anybody.  It does not matter.”

“Come February 27, I will be back in action and all my fans and people in boxing will know that I am back and big things are ahead of me.
