Pro boxing returns to Michael's Eighth Avenue in Glen Burnie, MD on Friday, May 12th as Baltimore Pro Boxing Promotions brings an exciting main event to the card.
Baltimore, MD cruiserweight "Slick" Nick Kisner will make the first defense of his NABA Cruiserweight title against former NABA champion Alex Guerrero of Salisbury, MD. The bout is scheduled for 10 rounds.
Kisner (19-3-1, six KO's) fought on the last card at Michael's, winning an eight-round split decision over Lamont Singletary on March 30th. Kisner won the NABA title on November 23 with a 10-round majority decision over Brian Holstein in Columbus, OH.
Guerrero (12-1-1, six KO's) captured the vacant NABA title with an eight-round stoppage of Anthony Ferrante in November of 2014 in Wilmington, DE.
