Undefeated welterweight prospect, Poindexter Knight, Jr. is looking to make his splash in his Atlantic City debut this Saturday at Boardwalk Hall when he takes on Jean Carlos Sepulveda in a bout scheduled for four-rounds.
Knight weighed in at 148.8 lbs while Sepulveda was 143.4
Knight (3-0, 2 KOs) of Philadelphia is eager in front of what is expected to be a knowledgeable and star-studded crowd on Atlantic City Boxing Hall of Fame Weekend.
“Training went great. I feel strong, and I am ready to show out,” said the 22 year-old former National Golden Gloves champion.
“I really do not know anything about my opponent. He is a last minute replacement.”
Knight, who hails just 60 miles from the famous shore town, has been thinking about this moment for a long time.
“Being from Philadelphia, I know all about the tradition of boxing in Atlantic City. This is a dream come true. All of the greats have fought there. I plan on making a statement. It gives me a lot of motivation to be able to perform in front of the legends of boxing. It is everything that I have dreamed about. I am going in there to make a statement.
Knight is managed by Split-T Management
