Las Vegas local J’Leon Love won’t have to travel far for his next bout, as he’ll be locking horns with Osumana Adama just a few miles from where he trains. The Love-Adama fight will be a featured bout on the next Premier Boxing Champions’ Toe-Toe-Toe Tuesdays card on Fox Sports 1 on Sept. 29, which will be held inside the Pearl at the Palms Casino Resort.
Love (20-1, 11 KOs) has won two straight since his shocking third-round knockout loss to Rogelio Medina last August. Scott Sigmon and Jason Escalera have both fallen victim to the Michigan native, who has looked like the stellar super middleweight contender he was before Median got him.
Adama (22-4, 16 KOs) is another in the long line of Ghanaian boxers. He twice fought for a piece of the world middleweight title, but he fell short in 2012 to Daniel Geale for the IBF version and then in 2014 for the WBA strap to Gennady Golovkin. He’s rebounded since the loss to “GGG” with a stoppage win over David Okai in February.
In the co-featured bout, undefeated junior middleweights Domonique Dolton and Oscar Molina will square off in an intriguing showdown. Dolton (17-0, 9 KOs) has feasted largely on regional opposition but it’s assumed that Molina (13-0, 10 KOs) will be his stiffest test thus far, and vice versa.
PBC also announced that former world champ Mickey Bey (21-1-1, 10 KOs) will fight Oscar Cortes (25-2, 13 KOs) in a 10-round lightweight bout and cruiserweight prospect Andrew Tabiti (11-0, 10 KOs) will take on Tamas Lodi (16-5-2, 13 KOs) in an eight rounder.
The televised portion of the card will go live at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT. and will be headlined by WBA junior lightweight champion Javier Fortuna (28-0-1, 20 KOs) defending his title against 2004 Puerto Rican Olympian Carlos Velasquez (19-1, 12 KOs).
