Dirrell vs Munoz Set For Michigan Showdown on July 2

On July 2 in Flint, Michigan, the Universal Boxing Organization™ Inter-Continental Super Middleweight title will be at stake when Anthony Dirrell (21-0, 18 KOs) takes on Michi “El Matador” Munoz (23-6, 16 KOs) at the Atwood Stadium.

Dubbed “Fights & Fireworks”, the Dirrell vs. Munoz UBO title fight will headline the first professional boxing show at Atwood in 64 years. The venue can hold up to 11.000 spectators, and usually hosts concerts as well as football and baseball games.

26-year-old Anthony Dirrell, the younger brother of Super Six star Andre, will be in his first title fight since turning pro in 2005, while Michi Munoz (30) is a former NABC Champion and lost WBO, WBC and UBO title challenges against Joey Gilbert, Carson Jones and Bronco McKart.

Dirrel last fought in May where he stopped Alberto Mercedes in three rounds in Santa Ynez, California. Munoz, born in Mexico but fighting out of Kansas his entire career, is coming off a second round victory over Mike McGuire.

Dirrell vs. Munoz will be promoted by Team Dirrell Promotions, and the undercard will feature quality fights with, among others, NABF Heavyweight Champion Jonathon Banks (25-1-1, 17 KOs) and the return of local lightweight Wes Ferguson (20-4-1, 6 KOs).

Atwood Stadium is located on 701 University Avenue in Downtown Flint. Tickets are priced $15 - $95, and can be purchased through www.startickets.com or at the box office located at the front gate of the building on the day of the show.
