The two Josh’s will headline United Promotions’ return to Brampton’s CAA Centre Saturday with a seven-fight card featuring unbeaten Josh Wagner (13-0) and Brampton’s own Joshua Frazer, sporting a perfect record (7-0) of his own.

The promotion was in Pickering last month to open the Pickering Casino Resort’s new arena with a card featuring high-profile Ajax fighters Sukhdeep Singh Chakria and Brandon Cook and now comes back to their home base in Brampton with a deep lineup of fighters on the program.

Orangeville’s Wagner will headline in a welterweight bout against tough Italian Xhuljo Vrenozi (18-5), who went the distance against Chakria his last time in the ring, while Frazer, the son of former Jamaican Olympian DeWith Frazer, will face veteran Mexican fighter Uriel Hernandez (13-7) in the co-headline super welterweight tilt.

Also on the card is Helmund Alekozai, 8-0 and fighting out of Mississauga, against Cody Kelly (4-5-3) of Wasaga Beach in a super lightweight fight; promising light flyweight Sara Joo, who won her only pro fight but has 105 amateur bouts on her resume, against veteran Mayela Perez (19-24-4); Gregory Miller (1-5) vs Drake Olchowecki (0-2) in a middleweight bout; super welterweights Daniel Roach (2-1-1) and Joe Belanos (2-6-1); and Mehdi Abidi (2-0) vs Antonio Scaringi in super middleweight fight.

The event kicks off at 6:30 p.m.
