SOUTHAVEN, MS The card for FAWL BRAWL II at the Isle Of Capri in Lula, MS is finally complete. A surprise on the card is a grudge rematch between DeAndrey Abron 5-0 (4 KO’s) and James Johnson. Abron and Johnson met this past September and the fight was stopped due to a cut by Johnson’s corner. “He knew I was about to stop him. This time I will finish him early,” an upset Johnson said. “I got tired of him parading around like he was the future of the division. Come October 15th I will stop him in his tracks. He may never fight again,” Johnson also said.

“He is a mad and dirty fighter. I feel sorry for him. He tried to take our last fight to the streets and realized real quick that I feel at home in the streets,” Abron said. “If he could fight near as good as he could talk he would be somewhere by now.

The talking will be over next week. I will stop him early!” Also, KO artist Ty Barnett will display his one punch power against Steve Verdin in a six round Lightweight battle. The highly touted Anthony Peterson 13-0 (10 KO’s) will be on display again as he goes to war with Roy Bohannon 12-3 (7 KO’s) from Nashville, TN. “This is shaping up to be one of our best casino cards ever,” Nate Yoder of Prize Fight Boxing stated. “The main event between Alonzo Butler and Andrew Greeley for the Mid South Heavyweight Title is sure to be electric,” Yoder also said. “These shows are a tremendous opportunity for the Mid-South to view future world champions for a decent price. In my opinion there are at least 3 future world champions on this card if not more,” said Yoder. The main even between Alonzo Butler and Andrew Greeley is sure to be an intriguing match up.

Alonzo Butler is on his way up and understands the tough obstacle in his path is Andrew Greeley. “I am coming to destroy Andrew Greeley because it is my job. He stands in the way of my destiny and that is a shot at the big dogs,” a confident Butler said. “Alonzo has never fought anyone of my caliber. His over confidence is going to find him tasting the canvas early and often. His prospect days are over,” said an annoyed Greeley. The six bout card is promoted by Prize Fight Boxing in association with the Isle of Capri, Miller Lite, New York Suit Exchange and the DeSoto Athletic Club.
