Charles Conwell to return to action on May 18

By Francisco Salazar

Junior middleweight prospect Charles Conwell returns to the ring Thursday night, promoter Lou DiBella confirmed to RingTV on Tuesday afternoon.

The 2016 U.S. Olympian will face Jeff Souffrant in a six-round bout at the Paramount Theater on the campus of Long Island University (LIU) in Brooklyn, New York.

Conwell (1-0, 1 knockout) made his pro debut on April 21 in Miami, Oklahoma, stopping Jeremiah Page in 41 seconds of the opening round.

The 19-year-old Conwell, who resides in Cleveland, Ohio, is managed by David McWater.

Souffrant (3-1, 1 KO), who resides in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, has won his last two bouts since losing to unbeaten Carlos Adames in July of 2015.

In the main event, unbeaten featherweight Heather Hardy will square off against Edina Kiss (14-3, 8 KOs) in an eight-round bout.

The fight is a rematch of their March 4 clash, which Hardy (19-0, with 4 KOs) won by unanimous decision.

Welterweight Noel Murphy (9-0, 2 KOs) will face Brian Jones (14-7, with 8 KOs) in an eight-round bout.
