The card is set to be headlined by a 12-round middleweight main event between Roman “Made in Hell” Karmazin and Dionisio “Mister Knockout” Miranda.
The event will also be broadcast live on ESPN2 as the network’s 2010 premiere of “Friday Night Fights.”
The event is also scheduled to feature many of the same local fighters that the first Glendale Glory did such as previous main-eventer Andrey Fedosov, a rising heavyweight, and Glendale up-and-comers Art “Lionheart” Hovhannesyan and Gapo “The Ghost” Tolmajyan.

ROSE-JOHNSON HEADED TO NEW MEXICO
Reigning All-Area and All-CIF goalie, Amanda Rose-Johnson of Crescenta Valley High has accepted a scholarship offer to play soccer for New Mexico Highlands University beginning next fall.
“I’m really excited,” she said. “Words can’t describe it.
“I like the school and the area.”
Rose-Johnson was a focal point in the Falcons claiming a Pacific League title last season and reaching the CIF Southern Section Division II quarterfinals.
Beyond just her talent, Reggie Rivas, Rose-Johnson’s coach at Crescenta Valley and with the Crescenta Valley Soccer Club since 2001, believes the senior’s work ethic was the biggest reason she reached the next level.
“Her hard work, her determination to get better every day [is what earned her a scholarship],” Rivas said. “She worked hard everyday and it paid off.”
The talented goalie has three shutouts thus far for the Falcons, who are ranked seventh in the division.
New Mexico Highlands, which went 4-16 overall this past season, is an NCAA Division II school and a member of the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference.
