8-Time World Champion Roy Jones Jr. in association with TNT Promotions Presents "Live Championship Boxing from The Harv at Mountaineer Casino, Racetrack & Resort" on Saturday April 28th.
A Double Feature is planned for the evening’s headliners when Youngtown, OH’s Jake “The Bull” Giuriceo (15W-0L-1D, 3KO) battles former WBC Latino Super Lightweight Champion Juan "Chago" Santiago (14W-8L-1D, 8KO) and power punching sensation Joel Diaz Jr. (8W-0L, 7KO) takes on Russian native Georgi Kevlishvili (10W-3L, 3KO).
Giuriceo is looking to fight his way into the world rankings when stepping in with the rugged Santiago, a proven contender with multiple national television appearances.

Kevlishvili is coming off of SHOWTIME appearance himself dropping a hard fought split decision to unbeaten Casey Ramos. Kevlishvili’s three losses were to opponents who had a combined record of 34W-0L at the time he fought them.
