JULY 24th – FIGHTS AT THE FITZ
Tunica, MS – Prize Fight in association with Global Boxing Gym and Tecate present one of the best fight cards and one of the best main events ever at the Fitz Hotel & Casino in Tunica, MS as it returns July 24th with it’s latest installment of “Fights At The Fitz”. “Fights At The Fitz” is a record breaking series that has showcased many of the top young fighters in the world today. World ranked fighters such as Fernando Guerrero, Shawn Porter, Lamont & Anthony Peterson and many more have see their careers blossom at “Fights At The Fitz”. This coming Saturday, July 24th should be no different as top lightweight prospects Ty Barnett and Tyrese Hendrix will meet in an 8 round battle with future title implications at stake. Barnett 17-1-1 (12 KO’s) from Washington D.C. looks to be the hunter in this fight as he attempts to use his great power punching ability and smooth boxing skills to limit the slick southpaw Hendrix. The veteran Hendrix 18-1-1 (7 KO’s) from Atlanta, GA will attempt to use great ring generalship, pure boxing ability and quick feet to keep Barnett off balance and land a shot that could swing the night into his favor. “This is probably the most competitive and compelling main event we have ever brought to the Fitz. It is an intriguing match up between the great boxer and the great puncher. Everything is on the line. The winner goes on to regional title fights and the loser has to climb the ladder again. I can’t wait!”, stated promoter Russ Young of Prize Fight.
The four bout undercard is also packed with very talented boxers. One of those young fighters is the outspoken and charismatic Taureano Johnson. Johnson is considered by many to be one of the top Jr. Middleweight prospects in the world today. Johnson 3-0 (3 KO’s), a member of the 2008 Bahamian Olympic Boxing Team and native of Nassau, Bahamas, has electric power in both hands and will look to impose that power on Roy Ashworth of New Orleans, LA in a 4 round clash. Also on the card is light heavyweight prospect Donta Woods 7-0 (6 KO’s) of Atlanta, GA as he will lay it all on the line against cagy veteran Terry Porter of Little Rock, AR.
