Tonight at Veterans Memorial Park in Beach Haven, New Jersey, undefeated Lightweight O’Shanique Foster will be in action in a 4-round bout against Darius Jackson.
Foster, of Orange, Texas has a record of 7-0 with 4 knockouts, has a lot on the line because with a win, he is in line for his national television debut when he is scheduled to take on Samuel Teah on ShoBox: The New Generation.
The 22 year-old Foster is not taking Jackson lightly as he knows that he needs a victory to advance his promising career.
“Training camp was great. I had a lot of good sparring and put a lot of roadwork in,” said Foster.
When asked about taking a “tune-up” fight just 6 weeks before a big fight on television, Foster is treating this fight just as serious.
“This fight will prepare my mind for November 6. It will be my first television shot but I take every opponent one at a time. I treat all opponents like they are world champions. I do not know much about him except that he is a little taller and we have a gameplan to get inside.”
“I am looking for a big win on Saturday and that will get me to the November fight and I expect to put on a great show on that night as well,” said Foster.
GH3 Promotions will also be keeping a close eye on undefeated Middleweight Arturo Trujillo of Easton, PA.
Trujillo has a record of 6-0 with three knockouts and is taking on Alec Asbury in a 4-round fight.
“We are looking at Arturo as our next signee,” said GH3 Promotions president, Vito Mielnicki.
“He is managed by Pete Festa and we have formed a great relationship with Pete in terms of working with his fighters”
