Maurice Hooker Tops Ayala's "Boxing at the Ballroom"

Knockout artist and rising Dallas star light welterweight Maurice "Mighty Mo" Hooker (10-0-1, 8KO) will headline Paulie Ayala Productions, "Boxing at the Ballroom" this Friday, August 23rd at the Renaissance Worthington Hotel in Fort Worth, Texas.  Exciting super middleweight Samuel "The Main Even" Clarkson (7-2, 5KO) will fight in the co-main event.

Hooker has been on the fast track after starting his career in 2011 with a draw.  He has reeled off 8 knockouts in his 10 wins and continues to impress while doing so.  A slender build, ala Tommy "Hitman" Hearns, Hooker also packs a right hand reminiscent of the Kronk Gym legend.  Hooker will lace them up against the dangerous John Revish (10-6-2, 8KO). Revish has been in the ring with one of boxing's brightest stars and current World Champion Adrien Broner.   

On the other hand, Clarkson, after stringing together 5 wins to kickoff his pro career including 3 by 1st round KO's, has dropped 2 of his last 3 fights.  In his last fight, Clarkson lost a hotly contested, heart break split decision to Jas Phipps, who most recently lost his first fight on a Floyd Mayweather promoted card.  Clarkson is scheduled to fight veteran Preston Kenny.

There will be one MMA fight on the card that will showcase John Paul Bonansinga vs Joshua Coronado.  Other notable boxers include Atlay Miranda and De Anthony Bonner plus female Leticia Price in separate bouts.  See full card below.
