Dargan (11-0, 6 KOs) will fight Ramesis Gil on Saturday at the Paramount Theatre in Huntington, N.Y. Nicknamed "Dynamite," the 27-year-old Dargan has won his last two fights by knockout.
He signed a contract in January with Main Events, the same promotion company that helped propel the careers of Philadelphia's Bryant Jennings and Gabriel Rosado through their NBC television series Fight Night.
Dargan is trained by his uncle Naazim Richardson. Richardson also trains Bernard Hopkins and Steve Cunningham.
"He has a lot of knowledge, but if you told him he was the best trainer, he would tell you he was not," Dargan said. "Because he feels that he still has a lot to learn."
Cunningham-Fury. Philadelphia heavyweight Steve Cunningham (25-5, 12 KOs) will face Britain's Tyson Fury (20-0, 14 KOs) on April 20 at Madison Square Garden. The fight will be televised on NBC, and the winner will be the mandatory challenger for champion Wladimir Klitschko.
