"I feel good and rejuvenated after the layoff," said Witherspoon.

"I haven't been out this long because I wanted to.  I had several fights fall through, so I decided to start my own company and do my own shows and I can't wait until July 12 to put on a great event not far from where I live," said Witherspoon.
