Duluth, Minn. - He has been a headliner and now, the 'Haitian Temptation' is the headliner as Al Sands will main event the 'Cold War' boxing card next month in Carlton.

At a press conference at Jungle Boy's Gym in Duluth, Sands (11-1) spoke about fighting Henry Namauu (10-7) of Las Vegas, Nevada on January 25th at Black Bear Casino. It won't be for the Minnesota Cruiserweight Title, since Namauu is from out-of-state. Sands is currently ranked seventh in his weight class nationally by BoxRec. Sands has won nine straight fights and is excited to main event.

"Had dreams about it in the past and the time has finally come, we have beat who we need to beat and we have the state title and we are ready to take that to the national level and it is just another step in the right direction towards a world championship," says Sands.
