Jargal Faces Howard February 15 At Mohegan Sun!

Arlington, VA lightweight "The Mongolian Mongoose" Bayan Jargal returns to action on Friday, February 15 when he faces Chris "Hurricane" Howard of Cincinnati, OH in a 10-round contest at the Mohegan Sun Casino in Uncasville, CT.  The bout is slated to be televised on ESPN2.

Jargal (17-3-3, 11 KO's) last fought on November 1 at Fight Night at the Washington Hilton Hotel in DC and scored a first-round knockout over former IBF Featherweight champ Eric Aiken.  This will be Jargal's second trip to Mohegan Sun. Jargal lost a 10-round unanimous decision to Breidis Prescott in April of 2011.

Howard (14-2-1, six KO's) has lost two straight bouts to undefeated boxers Mark Salser and Arash Usmanee.  Howard's loss to Salser on August 18 in West Salem, OH was a 10-round split decision loss.

This will be a barn burner and one fit for TV.
