Muwendo vs. Napunyi Clash is Set at Hyatt Regency

Minnesota’s next wave of fast rising, young, boxing stars will be on full display Saturday night at the Hyatt Regency in downtown Minneapolis.

The card is spearheaded by a featherweight clash for the ABO Mid-America title between the explosive Ismail Muwendo (11-0) and Anthony Napunyi (14-11). Fans have become accustomed to Muwendo’s lethal punching accuracy, complimented by his devastating power over nine career knockouts. Muwendo is coming off of a second round knockout of Leon Bobo in October.

Fresh off his most significant victory to date, Minneapolis based welterweight Jamal James(8-1) will be back in action against Patrick Boozer (5-1). The bout will be another step up in opposition for James, who beat in-state rival Corey Rodriguez in October.

One of the state’s most anticipated talents in recent memory will also see action Saturday night. Former Amateur elite Robert Brant (4-0) of Oakdale will continue his fast track transition into the professional level when he takes on Romon Barber (2-2).

The card will open with a strong preliminary line up of young talent as bantamweight, Jonathan Perez of Shakopee (3-0) looks to stay undefeated against Brian Jones(0-4). Tyler “The Hitman” Hultin (3-1) will face Steven Watt (1-0) in a junior middleweight contest, and featherweight Brad Heroff (1-0) faces Zach Wolff.

Fight weekend will kick off at the Sports page bar in Bloomington Friday afternoon at 5:00 PM where weigh ins, and media availability will be held. Tickets are available at sterlingmn.com.
