Robertson, 33, is ending a two-year layoff on Saturday. He has won four in a row after going 0-5-1 in his first six bouts.

At least four other fights are scheduled. Doors open at 6 p.m. with the first bout scheduled for 7 p.m. Tickets range from $55 to $125 and are available at the door.

Saturday’s card is one of three scheduled for the Claridge in the next two months.

On Nov. 18, Millville welterweight Thomas LaManna (24-2, 9 KOs) will end his brief retirement by taking on Samuel Amoako (23-16, 17 KOs), of Silver Spring, Maryland, in a 10-round bout. LaManna, 25, announced his retirement after beating George Sosa via decision at the Claridge on Aug. 19, but quickly reconsidered.

Pleasantville welterweight Anthony Young (18-2, 6 KOs) is scheduled to headline a card on Dec. 16 at the Claridge against an opponent to be named.
