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.
A terrific nine bout card is now set that will feature many up and coming stars in the Beltway region.
