LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- Professional boxing will make its debut at the KFC Yum! Center this April.
The arena will host the inaugural Jose Sulaiman World Invitational Tournament featuring eight fighters from around the world.
The fight night is put on by former champion Evander Holyfield and his Real Deal Boxing promotion and is the second fight card he's put on in Louisville.
WBC President Mauricio Sulaiman says the tournament is designed to give the fighters on the card exposure to build their careers.
The event is set for April 27 with tickets to go on sale Monday.
