Billings' Jesus Vallejo will take on Derrick Jones of Dallas in a main event 147-pound professional boxing bout Friday at the Shrine Auditorium.

The boxing show -- dubbed "Friday Night at the Fights" -- begins at 7 p.m. The doors open at 6 p.m. The card consists of four professional fights and four semi-pro matches.

Two fighters are on the card from Dallas, one from Toledo, Ohio, another from Oregon and one from Michigan. Billings favorites Joe Broken Rope and Daniel Gonzalez will also box professionally.

A 50-50 drawing will be held with all proceeeds going to Koni Dole, who is a Huntley Project football player in need of an athletic prosthetic following a leg amputation procedure in October.

Broken Rope, a former Club Boxing star who turned pro, will retire from boxing after his bout Friday said promoter Aaron Romero.
