North American Boxing Federation champion Rodney Jones will square off against Teddy Reid in a super welterweight championship fight on Jan. 28 in Northern Quest Casino’s Pend Oreille Pavilion in Airway Heights.
The entire card will be televised nationally on ESPN2. To accommodate an East Coast audience, however, the action starts early. The doors will open at 3:30 p.m., with bouts beginning at 4:30.
The card is the first televised boxing card for the casino, which hosted its first professional boxing event last month.
Jones, 37, has a record of 34-3-0 with 22 knockouts. Reid, 33, moves up in weight from the welterweight division, where he has a record of 22-6-1 with 16 wins by knockout.
The co-main event also is a championship bout. WBA Fedelatin featherweight champion Whyber Garcia, 15-2-0, with 11 knockouts, battles undefeated top contender Valdemir Pereira, who has won his first 19 professional fights, 14 by knockout.
