See also

Friday, Jan. 17, Brooklyn's Frank "Notorious" Galarza (11-0-2) will take on Newark's John "Apollo Kid" Thompson (14-0) in a light middleweight match up. The bout will be held at the Cook Convention Center in Memphis, Tennessee and will be televised on Showtime.

For Galarza, the bout is a significant opportunity for him to showcase his skills on national television and become a notable contender within the light middleweight division. At the same time, Thompson is looking to achieve the same feat and will surely have the stage to do so. Credit must be given to both fighters as it is rare for fighters to put their undefeated records on the line at this stage in their careers.

Promotionally, the card is being promoted by DiBella Entertainent and will feature many prospects such as Antoine Douglas, Luis Orlando Del Valle and Ivan Redkach.

Notably, Galarza's promoter, New Legend Promotions, and Thompson's promoter, GH3 Promotions, have done great jobs getting them to this position in their careers and it is now up to each respective fighter to take his career to the next level. Only time will tell, but boxing fans should tune in as the match up is certainly a big step towards a greater goal.
