VERONA, N.Y. (WKTV)
- Turning Stone Resort and Casino is getting ready for its third nationally televised boxing showcase, scheduled for Friday night.
ESPN's "Friday Night Fights" will feature a 12-round main event between Middleweight Champion Brian Vera and former Junior Middleweight Champ "Razor" Zin-Zurik.
Champion Vera says he is confident that he will retain his title.
"I'm happy for the opportunity to fight," he said. "I'm glad for the opportunity and I will be victorious."
This will be the third nationally-televised boxing event to take place at the Turning Stone in the last five months.
"HBO Boxing After Dark" was held at Turning Stone in September and October of last year.
