“Action Heroes” Undercard: Watch Danny Garcia vs. Nate Campbell, Gary Russell Jr. vs. Sherali Dostiev, Rakhim Chakhkiev vs. Harvey Jolly Tonight at 7PM ET
The free preview main event, which will lead viewers right into the “Action Heroes” pay-per-view broadcast, will see Philadelphia welterweight Danny “Swift” Garcia (20-0, 14 KO’s) square off against former World Champion Nate “The Galaxxy Warrior” Campbell in a 10 round junior welterweight fight. Garcia is one of the sport’s top rising stars, but he will meet a wily veteran with something to prove in Jacksonville, Florida’s Campbell.
The middle bout of the free preview is a six/eight round featherweight matchup pitting Capitol Heights, Maryland’s 2008 U.S. Olympian and top prospect Gary Russell Jr. (14-0, 9 KO’s) against Miami’s Sherali Dostiev (8-0, 2 KO’s). Russell went 7-0 in 2010 and the 2008 U.S. Olympian already has one win in the bank in 2011. Dostiev is looking to keep his undefeated record intact and upset Russell when he makes his Las Vegas debut on April 9.
Kicking off the action will be a four round cruiserweight battle between undefeated Russian southpaw Rakhim Chakhkiev (9-0, 7 KO’s) and Michigan’s Harvey Jolly (11-16-1, 6 KO’s). Chakhkiev won an Olympic Gold Medal for Russia in the 2008 Olympic Games and will be making his United States debut on April 9. Jolly has amazingly faced 16 unbeaten fighters over the course of his six-year career and with Chakhkiev being number 17, it’s business as usual for the upset-minded “Candy Man.”
