A Trio Of Undercard for Prograis vs Indongo March 9th

NEW YORK (March 7, 2018) A stellar off-TV three-fight undercard has been
added to this Friday’s SHOWTIME BOXING: SPECIAL EDITION live on SHOWTIME at 10
p.m. ET/PT from Deadwood Mountain Grand in Deadwood, S.D., and presented by
DiBella Entertainment.

In a scheduled six-round junior middleweight clash, undefeated 2016 United
States Olympian Charles Conwell (6-0, 5 KOs) will look to continue his hot
streak as a professional. Just 20 years old, Conwell returns to battle
following a sensational hometown performance in Cleveland, winning a
dominant six-round decision versus Roque Zapata on November 10, 2017, in
his first nationally televised bout on SHOWTIME.

Son of former heavyweight champion Tommy Morrison, Tulsa, Okla. knockout
artist Trey Lippe Morrison (13-0, 13 KOs) is determined to forge his own
path to heavyweight stardom and will compete in a six-round bout. Fully
recovered from a hand injury that required surgery in April 2017, Lippe
Morrison is excited about his return to the ring where the charismatic
prospect has thrilled boxing fans throughout his home state of Oklahoma.

Rounding out the undercard, Matt “Sharp Shooter” Remillard (26-1, 15 KOs),
of Hartford, Conn., continues his rise in the junior lightweight division
with a scheduled 10-rounder against Sonora, Mexico’s Jesus “Chuito” Valdez
(22-3-1, 11 KOs). The 31-year-old Remillard has won three fights in a row
since losing to world champion Mikey Garcia, most recently stopping Yardley
Armenta Cruz in the fourth round, on October 28, 2017.

The 25-year-old Valdez finished 2017 with two third-round knockouts in Agua
Prieta, Mexico, and will be fighting for the second time in the United
States. On June 30, 2017, Valdez fought a hotly contested 10-round battle
against undefeated prospect Lamont Roach in Indio, Calif., losing a
decision.

SHOWTIME BOXING: SPECIAL EDITION live on SHOWTIME at 10 p.m. ET/PT is
headlined by a 12-round clash between undefeated 140-pound contender Regis
