It’s going down! Team Ultimate’s Joseph Valtellini (5 – 0 record) will be competing tomorrow for the Friday Night Fights promotion in New York City. He’ll be facing Shawn Yarborough (15 – 1 record) in the main event. Yarborough is a top competitor from the west coast and is a former WBC Muay Thai USA National Champion.

“I am really looking forward to making a statement in my match with Shawn. I am training harder and smarter than ever and feel ready for new challenges against notable opponents like Shawn” said Joseph. “A win against Shawn will allow me to get those larger fights and show that my name belongs as one of the top in North America.
