Murphy (7-0, 5 KOs), now living in Pensacola, Florida, is making his third main event appearance at Legends Casino. The 23-year-old is geared up for another ten-rounder.

Kerwat (13-3, 5 KOs), originally from Tunisia and now calling Frankfurt, Germany, home, turned pro in 2015 post-motherhood. She quickly grabbed titles, including the WBC International lightweight and WBF World welterweight titles. Under Jones since 2017, she’s a force to be reckoned with.

Jangra (6-0, 4 KOs), hailing from Kharian, India, brings a sparkling amateur record, including Silver Medals at the Asian Amateur Boxing Championships and Commonwealth Games. He’s been honing his skills under Jones.

The card also features local boxing talent in a heavyweight clash, a cruiserweight showdown, and a super featherweight scrap, all promising edge-of-your-seat action.
