The opponent for Palmer Park, MD featherweight Kevin "K-Smoov" Rivers, Jr. on Saturday, July 13 at Rosecroft Raceway in Fort Washington, MD has changed.
Originally, Rivers (8-0, six KO's) was supposed to face Cesar Cisneros of Bradenton, FL. However, the bout is now an all-Beltway battle as Rivers will now take on Landover, MD's Nuwan Jayakody (1-1, one KO). Jayakody, a native of Sri Lanka, last fought on June 1 and lost a four-round unanimous decision to Anthony Burgin in Atlantic City, NJ. No word yet on whether this bout will still be a six-round contest as originally scheduled for Rivers.
