In a rematch of her USA Boxing national championship bout, Lexington's Samantha Kinchen will be the featured fighter when Lexington Legends Boxing hosts a multi-bout card Saturday.

Kinchen, a Henry Clay graduate who will be attending the University of Kentucky next fall, won the national title at 152 pounds in April by scoring a first-round TKO over Taylor Carroll of Monroe, Mich. In Saturday's rematch, Kinchen's national title will not be at stake, but a "Legends of Lexington" championship belt will be on the line.

Eight to 10 bouts are expected to take place, starting at 6 p.m.

Other boxers include Kinchen's younger brother Rocky and her sparring partner, Davonte Davis.

Tickets are $14 for adults, $7 for children 12-and-under.

Legends is located at 1195 Versailles Road.
