Two promising local prospects,
Marlon Harrington and Gheith Karim,
will clash for the vacant World
Boxing Federation (WBF) North
America Super Welterweight title on
June 3 at the Little Ceasars Arena
in Detroit, Michigan, USA.
Headlining the card will be WBF
Womens World Middleweight champion
Claressa Shields defending her title

his career, as he lost a decision to
12-1-2 Marquis Taylor last October,
and he is not taking the easy road.

residing in nearby Dearborn, he will
be facing an undefeated southpaw
full of confidence going into his
first championship fight.
For both men it is a big chance to
make a name for themselves on a huge
stage, in front of a big crowd,
