'Cujo' Sigmon Added to Gonzalez-Russell Undercard; Johnson, Pettway, Harrison Appear at Amateur Card in Glen Burnie!

Bedford, VA super middleweight Scott "Cujo" Sigmon will face Mayweather Promotions prospect J'Leon Love of Dearborn Heights, MI in an eight-round contest on Saturday, March 28 at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas, NV.  The bout will be on the undercard of the WBC Featherweight title bout between champion Jhonny Gonzalez and challenger Gary Russell, Jr.

Sigmon (24-6-1, 13 KO's) is coming off an eight-round TKO loss to Caleb Truax on November 1 in Chicago, IL.  Love (18-1, 10 KO's) returns to the venue where he suffered his first pro loss -- a third-round knockout to Rogelio Medina on August 30.

There is a possibility that the bout may appear on the Showtime Extreme telecast that will precede the Gonzalez-Russell main event that will be on Showtime.
