Sullivan Barrera is back, healthy and ready to make a run at another world title opportunity.
Barrera, a former light heavyweight title challenger, will fight Seanie Monaghan on November 3. The 12-round bout will take place at The Aviator Sports and Events Center in Brooklyn in the main event of a boxing card streamed exclusively on Facebook.
The fight was originally scheduled to take place on August 18 but was postponed when Barrera suffered an eye injury. Barrera has since recovered, and Monaghan remained available to put the bout back on the Facebook Watch series, a collaboration between Golden Boy Promotions, Facebook and Main Events.
The 36-year-old Barrera has not fought since getting stopped in the 12th round of a WBA light heavyweight title fight against Dmitry Bivol. That loss snapped Barrera's four-fight win streak since his first pro loss, which was a unanimous decision loss to former unified world champion Andre Ward in 2016. Barrera is currently ranked No. 4 by the WBA and No. 15 by the WBC in their respective rankings at 175 pounds.
As for Monaghan, he has not fought since winning a unanimous decision against Evert Bravo on the undercard of Deontay Wilder's heavyweight world title defense against Bermane Stiverne this past November. Monaghan started his career by winning his first 28 fights, but had his win streak snapped when he lost to Marcus Browne last year. The 37-year-old New York native is currently ranked in the top 10 by the WBC, WBO and IBF.
