October 6, 2020 (Uncasville, Connecticut)
#9 world rated (IBF), CHARLES “BAD NEWS” CONWELL (12-0 9KO’s) and fellow undefeated jr. middleweight, WENDY “THE HAITIAN FIRE” TOUSSAINT (12-0 9KO’s) tipped the scale today at Mohegan Sun in Uncasville, Connecticut, ahead of their 10-round IBF USBA Jr. Middleweight Championship in the main event on ShoBox tomorrow night. Conwell weighed in at 154 lbs. and Toussaint came in at a ready, 153 lbs.
Toussaint enters Wednesday nights main event bout looking to return to Long Island with Conwell’s IBF USBA Title. With a win over Conwell, Toussaint will not only return with a title in tow, but is likely to find himself rated inside of the top 10 of the Jr. middleweight division. Conversely, Conwell is looking to defend his title, separate himself, and continue his climb into world title contention. ShoBox: The New Generation is set to go live at 9PM ET on Showtime.
