Ferndale, MD's "Slick" Nick Kisner has perhaps his biggest bout in his career on Friday, May 29 when he faces undefeated Lateef "Power" Kayode in Memphis, TN in a 10-round cruiserweight bout. The contest is slated to be televised by CBS Sports Network.
Kisner (14-1-1, five KO's) is coming off a six-round unanimous decision over Marlon Hayes on March 28 at the ABC Sports Complex in Springfield, VA. Kayode, a native of Lagos, Nigeria who fights out of Hollywood, CA (20-0, 16 KO's) was stopped in the first round by Luis Ortiz for the interim WBA Heavyweight title in his last outing on September 11 in Las Vegas, NV. However, the decision was overturned in January because Ortiz failed a drug test. Kayode has won numerous regional cruiserweight titles.
