WINSTON-SALEM, NC /Send2Press Newswire/ -- On April 16, 2005, Oliver "The Atomic Bull" McCall (42-8-0, 31KOs) will face Cornelius Ellis in the Ring of Dreams Fight Night Main Event at the M.C. Benton Jr. Convention Center in Winston-Salem, NC. McCall, best known for winning the WBC World Heavyweight Champion title after knocking out then champion Lennox Lewis in the second round of the 1994 world championship fight, is staging a comeback that he hopes will lead to another world title shot. McCall, who calls this a "tune-up fight," also intends to extend his record of never having been knocked down or knocked out.

The WBE middleweight world title will also be on the line, with Bonnie Mann (8-7-0, 3KOs) of Raleigh, North Carolina, squaring off against Carrie Flock (5-2-0, 3KOs), of Charlotte, North Carolina. With such close records, this should be an exciting match up.
