Silver Spring, MD cruiserweight Darnell "The Ding-a-Ling Man" Wilson will challenge Galveston, TX's Felix "Bad News" Cora for the NABF Cruiserweight title on Friday, March 24 at the Seminole Hard Rock LIVE Arena in Hollywood, FL. The bout became an ESPN2 co-feature because of an injury to Hector Camacho, Sr. who was scheduled to appear on that card.
Wilson (18-3-3, 15 KO's) has lost his last two bouts, including a trip to the heavyweight division where reports say he hung tough against Owen Beck on January 7 in New York City.
Cora, who holds both the NABF and USBA cruiserweight titles, is an undefeated southpaw (17-0-2, nine KO's). This will be Cora's first bout in 2006. In his last outing, Cora stopped former IBF Cruiserweight champion Arthur Williams in the eighth round in October of 2005.
The ESPN2 telecast begins at 9 pm ET.
