This Friday night’s ShoBox card from Rochester, New York, has a new co-feature, as lightweights Thomas Mattice and Will Madera will meet in an eight-round fight.

Mattice-Madera replaces the previously scheduled bout between Logan Yoon and Richard Zamora. Yoon suffered an injury in training and is off the card.

The 28-year-old Mattice (13-0-1, 10 KO), from Cleveland, is a familiar face to ShoBox regulars, as his last two bouts have come on the series, both against Zhora Hamazaryan. In July of last year, Mattice received a highly controversial split decision win over Hamazaryan, and the two rematched two months later, ending in a draw. The draw wasn’t nearly as controversial as the result of their first bout.

Madera (12-0-2, 6 KO) is a 28-year-old hopeful from Albany, New York, and has mostly been matched softly thus far. He’s gone to a draw in two of his last three bouts.

The main event for the show will see super middleweights Ronald Ellis (15-0-2, 10 KO) and DeAndre Ware (12-1-2, 8 KO) square off in a 10-round bout, and the opener is a matchup between unbeaten super featherweights Abraham Nova (14-0, 10 KO) and Oluwaseun Joshua Wahab (18-0, 11 KO).
