Potapenko earned his shot at the title when he put on a great performance defeating Billy Ward at the promotion’s last event in July. He won the fight with a triangle choke at :57 seconds of the third round.
Paul is also coming into the fight with a good record and like his opponent Potapenko, has good ground and stand up skills. This fight is shaping up to be the fight of the night and could even be one of the best amateur fights of the year. Paul’s last fight with the promotion was in March when he defeated Billy Ward at 2:57 in the first round by rear naked choke.
The card will also feature fan favorites John Passarella and Chris Murphy. Several other tough fighters from some of the best gyms in the area will also be competing.
Raffles will be going on all night long with the funds going to support the Jeff Dunbar Fund. Supreme Promotions will take place tonight at the IBEW union hall at 1100 N.E Frontage Road in Joliet, Illinois. Doors open at 7 and fights begin at 8.
