Andrzej Fonfara-Tommy Karpency Set For Nov. 16th

CHICAGO, IL - Advance tickets for “WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP BOXING” will go on sale THIS MONDAY with the return of “Chicago’s Polish Prince Andrzej Fonfara” set for FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 16, in an IBO Light Heavyweight World Title Bout against former world title challenger Tommy Karpency of Adah, Pennsylvania at Chicago’s UIC Pavilion. 

Presented by Round 3 Productions, advance tickets priced at $150, $100, $50 and $30, may be purchased through Ticketmaster ( www.ticketmaster.com , phone 1-800-745-3000) or at the UIC Pavilion Box Office (phone 312-413-5700) in addition to the Round 3 Productions Office (phone 708-345-9999).

The UIC Pavilion is located at 525 S. Racine on the near West Side of Chicago. Doors on the evening of the event will open at 7pm with the first bell at 8pm.

Just 24-years-old, Warsaw, Poland native Fonfara is coming off his career best win, a dominant ten round decision over former world champion Glen Johnson on JULY 13 at the UIC Pavilion in a clash broadcast on ESPN’s Friday Night Fights.

Sporting a record of 22-2-1 (12KO’s), the heavy handed Fonfara, one of the best young fighters in the sport, has captured the interest of the huge Polish population in the Windy City along with the Chicago fight crowd, drawing massive crowds to his fights at the UIC Pavilion where eleven of his last twelve bouts have taken place.

Fonfara is currently world ranked #8 by the WBC and #11 by the WBO.

The 25-year-old Karpency brings a record of 21-3-1 (14KO’s) into the world title bout with Fonfara. Most recently the southpaw traveled to Cardiff, Wales on FEBRUARY 25 to challenge WBO Light Heavyweight Champion Nathan Cleverly, losing a hard fought twelve round decision.

Two years ago while riding an eight bout-winning streak, Karpency fought Karo Murat for the WBO Inter-Continental Light Heavyweight Title, battling to a very close decision loss.

Further details including an excellent undercard to this world title fight will be announced shortly.

What a joke. Why are “world champions” and contenders fighting a full time nurse? What a joke.

Karpency is the right opponent for Fonfara at this stage in his development.
