Duluth, Minn. - A Pro-Am boxing card on March 15th at Grandma's Sports Garden in Duluth will be a homecoming for Duluth native Al Sands (7-1) as the "Haitian Temptation" faces "Cold Steel" Chris Thomas.

This will be Thomas's first fight in the Twin Ports. The Cruiserweight from Chicago is 17-17-2 and has held titles in his career. Meanwhile, Sands is 7-1 and has won five straight fights, all by knockout.

"Keys to victory for me are going to be to stay formless, we have a lot of different tools and a lot of different tricks we can use. But, as long as we stick to our fundamentals and keep pressuring him and keep pressuring him, it is going to be a great night," says Sands.
