Layla McCarter to return on April 4th in Portland

RINGSIDE 26/01/2020

On 2Pound Sports and Entertainment’s April 4th fight card at the Clackamas Armory just south of Portland, Layla “Amazing” McCarter will defend her WIBF and GBU welterweight titles in a 10 round main event against Colorado’s Brittany Cruz, former AIBA youth featherweight champion.

McCarter, who sports a record of 43-13-5 with 11 knockouts, fought once in 2019 and is on the hunt for a big fight with the likes of Claressa Shields, Katie Taylor and Cecilia Braekhus.

The undefeated Shields recently headlined a card on Showtime and respectfully acknowledged McCarter on social media following Layla’s critique of her victory.

McCarter won’t be looking past Brittany Cruz, however. Cruz is coming off a win over Darci Vigil in Denver and won’t be coming to lay down.

Also confirmed for April 4th is 1-1 Abdul Kamara, making his return to a 2Pound Sports event to face 5-8-2 Kevin Davila in a 4 round bout.

Making his pro debut will be Ramon Martinez of Hood River against Roman Avetisyan 0-3 in a 4 round bout.

Undefeated from Bend, Oregon Chris “The Truth” Johnson 7-1 (1KO’s) is penciled in to face an opponent to be announced, and 2Pound Sports has more news in store!
