Main Events Moves Forward
By Steve Kim, MaxBoxing (Jan 19, 2012) Doghouse Boxing
Main Events announced earlier Tuesday that since no suitable replacement was found as the opponent for Sergei Liakhovich (who was scheduled to face Eddie Chambers before he suffered injured ribs) that a pair of local heavyweights from the Philadelphia area, Maurice Byarm and Bryant Jennings would now co-headline their inaugural shows on the NBC Sports Network from the Ayslum Arena in Philly.

When the usual suspects like Ty Fields were brought up to pinch-hit for Chambers( which is ironic given that the last time this network was in the boxing business they were fit to be ’Tyed’) Kathy Duva decided it was time to move forward and attempt to make a real fight, instead of just trotting out two names. I give her credit, it takes some guts to do that. Besides, from the get-go this was going to be tough, finding suitable replacements on such notice is difficult.

The co-main event is a jr. middleweight scrap between Jose Soto-Karass and Gabriel Rosado.
