By Julio Thyme 03/07/2009
American Boxing Promotions hosts their inaugural card “The Rematch” this Friday at the South Point Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada. The main event features WBA and lightweight champion Layla McCarter (31-13-5, 7 KOs) of Las Vegas against Fujin Raika (18-5-1, 6 KOs) of Tokyo, Japan in a rematch that’s been seven years in the making. In April of 2002, McCarter traveled to Tokyo Japan and won a majority 8-round decision over then undefeated Raika. McCarter would go on to win four world titles while Raika vowed to exact revenge.
