Horowitz Faces a Tough Test

Light heavyweight Samuel Horowitz is scheduled to face Simon Edward Buettner on February 7 at the Horseshoe Casino in Hammond, Indiana. Buettner marks Horowitz's toughest opponent to date.

Horowitz (2-0, 2 KOs) has two first round KOs in his career. His last one came when a thunderous right hand knocked Eli Smith out cold in November. Nicknamed the "Bear Jew," Horowitz has been in soft thus far, but Buettner represents a significant step up in competition.

Buettner (6-1, 3 KOs) has a sterling record, but there's more than meets the eye. All of Buettner's knockouts came against winless opponents. His six wins came at the hands of fighters with losing records. He's faced one opponent with a winning record and he lost.

The bout is scheduled for four rounds.
