Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) --- Minnesota state champion Al "The Haitian Temptation" Sands headlines the Fall Brawl at Black Bear Casino and the six fight card slated for Saturday put on by Duluth's Jungle Boy Boxing Gym.

Sands (10-1) has won eight straight fights all by knockout and is currently ranked No. 21 in the country in the cruiserweight division. Sands will take on No. 18 Bobby Thomas Jr. (12-1-1) in an eight round match.

Although Sands has 10 knockouts in his career coming into Saturday, he expects Thomas to be his toughest opponent yet.

"He constantly comes forward," Sands said. "He's a big, strong guy and has two titles out there in West Virginia. He's a big puncher and has knockout power, and he's been the full eight rounds so he'll be ready."
