Default 3x SHW Nat'l Champ Mike Wilson to debut against Marvin Hunt (12-23-1) on 8/29

I'm posting this because Wilson is actually from my hometown (not many boxers from around here) and I just saw he's debuting next week. Marvin Hunt seems like a stiff test for a debut fight.

Here is an article on the event (apparently it can be watched for $5 at www.PrizeFightTV.com).
Quote:
“Boxing’s Future Champions II”

Streaming live PPV from Tunica - Guerrero, Porter & Co. to be showcased

SOUTHHAVEN, Miss. (August 19, 2009) – An unbeaten duo of soon to be ready-for-primetime prospects -- middleweight Fernando Guerrero (14-0, 12 KOs) and junior middleweight Shawn Porter (9-0, 7 KOs) -- will be showcased August 29 on the “Boxing’s Future Champions II” pay-per-view pro card, live on streaming video from Fitzgerald’s Casino & Hotel in Tunica, Mississippi.

“Boxing’s Future Champions II,” presented by Prize Fight Boxing, will air on PPV at www.PrizeFightTV.com, starting at 8 PM/ET, for only $4.99.

Also fighting on this entertaining card is once-beaten Philadelphia heavyweight “Gentleman” Chazz Witherspoon (25-1, 17 KOs), as well as exciting middleweight Dominic Wade (3-0, 3 KOs), 4-time Junior Olympic champion, and 2004-2005 U.S, Super Heavyweight Champion Mike Wilson in his much anticipated pro debut.

“We’re committed to bringing world-class boxing to diehard fans all over,” promoter Russ Young said. “Fight fans can watch tomorrow’s champions today from the comfort of their computers for a very affordable price. Fernando and Shawn are two of the hottest, most exciting prospects in boxing. Plus, we have Chazz and Dominic on the card, and everybody’s excited about Wilson’s pro debut. It’s going to be a great night of boxing.”

Guerrero (14-0, 12 KOs), born in the Dominican Republic, has already fought twice on ESPN and once on Showtime. The talented southpaw headlined the inaugural “Boxing’s Future Champions” show this past June in his hometown of Salisbury, Maryland, knocking out Brian “The Assassin” Norman in the second round.

The 22-year-old Guerrero, who captured a gold medal at the World Cadet Junior Olympics and 2007 USA National Championships, has also cracked the ratings and is No. 10 in the NABF and No. 14 in the NABO. He faces Chris “On Target” Archer (11-7, 7 KOs), in the 8-round main event.

The 6-round co-feature matches 2007 World Golden Gloves champion, 2008 U.S. OIympic Team alternate Porter (9-0, 7 KOs), against Lamar Harris (6-2, 4 KOs).

Witherspoon was the 2004 National Golden Gloves champion and his only loss in 26 pro fights was to world title challenger Chris Arreola, last year by a controversial disqualification. Witherspoon, whose cousin Tim was world heavyweight champion, takes on gatekeeper Stacy “Big Foot” Frazier (14-5, 13 KOs) in an 8-round bout.

Also on the undercard in 4-round bouts is Wade, versus 23-fight veteran Tyrone Dowdy, and Wilson, who meets battle-tested “Marvelous” Marvin Hunt. Wilson defeated Travis Kaufman and Mike Marrone in the amateurs.

For more information go to www.PrizeFightPromoters.com or www.PrizeFightTV.com.
*Wilson won the national championship in 2006 as well with a razor thin finals victory over Michael Hunter, but the bout was overturned because Wilson's drug test came back positive for marijuana. Wilson was declared the runner-up and suspended for 3 months.

I'd be very interested to hear any comments, particularly on the choice of opponent for Wilson's debut. It seems like they're throwing him straight into the fire, which is rare these days, especially for a fresh prospect.

I just noticed something while looking at Hunt's boxrec:

won 12 (KO 5) + lost 23 (KO 20) + drawn 1 = 36
