Already signed for a Feb. 3 rematch of their controversial July bout, light heavyweights Edison Miranda and Yordanis Despaigne will be featured on the Andre Ward-Carl Froch undercard at the Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City this Saturday. Miranda (34-6, 29 KOs), the heavy-handed two-time world title challenger from Colombia, will be taking on Australia-based Kenyan Kariz Kariuki (24-9-2, 19 KOs) in an eight-round contest. Kariuki's greatest claim to fame is a decision win over former middleweight world title challenger Randy Griffin in 2010. In his 35-fight career, he has also suffered losses to Daniel Geale (TKO 11) and Garth Wood (SD 7) Despaigne (9-1, 4 KOs), a Cuban Olympian with a DQ 5 win over Miranda and a unanimous decision loss to blue-chip prospect Ismayl Sillakh, will face Houston's Cornelius White (17-1, 15 KOs), who has mostly fought on the Texas club circuit, but scored a six-round split decision win over veteran journeyman Dhafir Smith in Atlantic City last July. Miranda and Despaigne will return against one another on the Feb. 3 edition of Friday Night Fights as a second part to their entertaining first encounter which saw Miranda drop a fifth round disqualification due to repeated low blows.
