Logan McGuiness Will Face Meacher Major on May 12

TORONTO – North American Boxing Association super featherweight champion Logan Cotton McGuiness defends his title May 12 in the 12-round main event against challenger Meacher “Major Pain” Major, headlining the Hershey Centre Fight Series, at Hershey Centre in Mississauga, Ontario.

The old-time Hershey Centre Fight Series card is presented by United Promotions in association with Hennessy Sports.

The May 12 show continues the highly-successful third season of boxing at Hershey Centre for United Promotions, which is comprised of three Ontario boxing promoters –Adam Harris (Hennessy Sports), Tyler Buxton (Buxton Promotions) and Don MacDonald.

“We are committed to this series and boxing fans are turning out on an increased basis to watch many of the best Ontario fighters,” MacDonald explained.  “We’re promoting as a unified group and the boxing scene here is exploding. We have three mores shows booked this year.  Our May 12th show promises to be the best yet from top to bottom.”

McGuinness (16-0-1, 8 KOs), fighting out of nearby Orangeville, is coming off of his sensational come-from-behind NABA title victory last October against Benoit Gaudet.  McGuinness overcame a severe cut and trailed substantially in scoring, but the 2012 NABA Fighter of the Year rallied and registered the knockout he needed in order to win the fight.  The wildly popular 24-year-old McGuinness is rated No. 8 by the World Boxing Association (“WBA”).

Major (20-4-1, 17 KOs) is a former WBA Fedecaribe and Bahamian lightweight champion.  Now living in Buffalo, he is riding a four-fight win streak into his showdown with McGuinness.

 “McGuinness is one of the best, most exciting prospects in boxing, not just in Canada,” Hennessy Sports Canada Director of Boxing Operations Jason Toufexis said.  “He is a tremendous prospect who local fans are behind 100-percent. Logan is closing in on a major fight, but he has to get past Major, who is a tough fighter that has valuable experience. We expected the Hershey Centre to be rocking once again May 12.  ”

Undefeated Brampton, Ontario cruiserweight prospect Denton Daley (5-0, 2 KOs),  a Sheridan College graduate (business major) and former Canadian amateur champion, moves up to his first scheduled eight-round bout versus dangerous Frank White (7-6-2, 5 KOs).

Fan favorite Brandon “Bad Boy” Cook (5-0, 2 KOs) faces TBA in a six-rounder, middleweight fight. Steve Wilcox (1-0, 1 KO), a lightweight from Hamilton, Ontario who is the oldest of five fighting Wilcox brothers at their father’s Steeltown Boxing Club, meets David Aucoin (2-5, 1 KO).

Junior middleweight Junmar Emon, of Toronto, makes his pro debut in a four-rounder against Hamilton’s Daryl Peron (0-1).  All fights and fighters are subject to change.

Tickets, priced at $30.00 and $50.00, are available at the Hersey Centre Box Office, or through Ticketmaster at 855.985.5000 or ticketmaster.ca.
