In addition, previously announced unbeaten Eric Priest (13-0, 8 KOs) of Wichita Falls, Texas is now scheduled to face Janer Gonzalez (21-6-1, 17 KOs) of Colombia. The latter is coming off the defeat by knockout in the second round against Alejandro Luis Silva last November. The eight-round middleweight bout serves as the co-main event.

Plus, Tristan Kalkreuth (13-1, 10 KOs) of Carollton, Texas meets a new opponent, Anthony Hollaway (7-5-3, 6 KOs). The Peoria, Illinois native replaced previously announced Mexico’s Mario Aguilar (23-9, 19 KOs). Hollaway lost his previous bout in May by unanimous decision against Lawrence King. The 10-round cruiserweight bout is featured on the Fulghum vs Alexander undercard.
