Zlaticanin vs Herrera Headline BB King’s Tonight – Former WBC world lightweight champion Dejan Zlaticanin is back in action Thursday night in New York City.
Zlaticanin is making his first appearance since his January defeat at the hands of Mikey Garcia cost him his WBC belt. Zlaticanin won the belt in June of 2016 when he stopped Franklin Mamani and the win made him the first boxing world champion from the nation of Montenegro. Zlaticanin will be a major favorite to get back on track against Hevinson Herrera.
Promoter Lou DiBella is back at the BB King Grill with a six-fight boxing card that has several other notable fights. Undefeated fighters Will Madera and Wesley Ferrer meet in a lightweight eight rounder and undefeated heavyweight George Arias returns looking for his tenth win. The complete line-up appears below.
