Jesse Hart, Toka Kahn Clary on Glen Tapia-Keenan Collins card


Super middleweight Jesse Hart, welterweight Egidijus Kavaliauskas, junior welterweight Julian Rodriguez and featherweight Toka Kahn Clary, all of whom are undefeated, will be featured on a June 14 card headlined by junior middleweight Glen Tapia against Keenan Collins at Bally's Event Center in Atlantic City, N.J., according to Pat Lynch, manager of Tapia and Rodriguez.

Lynch said the card is being promoted by Top Rank Promotions in association with Pound for Pound Promotions, the latter owned by his brother, John Lynch.

Hart, Kavaliauskas, Williams and Clary will all face opponents to be determined, according to Top Rank CEO Bob Arum.

The 24-year-old son of former middleweight contender Eugene "Cyclone" Hart, who also trains him, Jesse Hart (13-0, 10 KOs) is coming off last month's unanimous decision over Samuel Clarkson.

A Lithuanian Olympian in 2008 and 2012, the 25-year-old Kavaliauskas (5-0, 4 KOs) will be after his fifth consecutive stoppage win, having last been in action for a first-round technical knockout of James Harrison in March.

Clary, 24, is 11-0 with eight knockouts, and the 19-year-old Rodriguez (3-0, 2 KOs) was last in the ring for a first-round stoppage of Neyeine Muang in January.

A 24-year-old from Passaic, N.J., Tapia (20-1, 12 KOs) was last in action in December, when he was stopped in the sixth round by hard-hitting James Kirkland at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City. Collins (15-8-3, 10 KOs), 37, of York, Pa., recently suffered a fourth-round stoppage loss to Danny Jacobs in April of last year.

Tapia is being trained by six-time "Trainer of The Year" Freddie Roach, although Roach will not be in his corner on fight night. On the same evening at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, Roach will be with WBO 140-pound titleholder Ruslan Provodnikov when the Siberian faces Chris Algieri. Lynch said that Tapia is at Roach's Wild Card Boxing Club in Hollywood, Calif.

Prior to facing Kirkland, Tapia knocked out of Elco Garcia in five rounds and scored a bloody eighth-round technical knockout victory over Abraham Han.
