TAMPA, FL - Boxing returns to Atlanta as Garry Jonas’ Probox Promotions presents “Future Stars” on November 19th.

“Atlanta has recently shown that it is a boxing town, and we are thrilled to showcase some of our best talent in Buckhead on November 19th,” Jonas said.

In his previous venture, Jonas was owner, founder, and former partner of Mike Tyson in ‘Iron Mike Promotions’. Now he plans on bringing his extensive experience in the boxing business to his new project. 

“Probox Promotions has some big plans that will be announced in the near future, and Atlanta fits perfectly into them. We have one of the best young stables in boxing. We are taking the world’s best amateurs and properly transitioning and developing them into professionals. Fight fans in Atlanta will have an opportunity to see that firsthand.”

November 19th will feature undefeated German heavyweight Christian Thun (6-0, 4 KOs). Thun, who is 6’8’’ 270 lbs and was a primary sparring partner for WBC heavyweight champion, Tyson Fury, looks to bring the heat to Hotlanta as he is set to face Terrell Jamal Woods - a veteran of eighty-four professional bouts. Thun vs. Woods is scheduled for six rounds. 

Top cruiserweight prospect and Atlanta’s own Najee “Chino” Lopez (1-0, 1 KO) continues his professional campaign at home. Lopez, who was a standout amateur and Olympic hopeful for both the United States and Puerto Rico, is coming off of an exciting first-round knockout win over Wallace Nass Silva in August. For his second bout, Lopez is stepping up the competition and is scheduled to fight Anthony Hollaway (3-1-2, 3 KOs) in a six-rounder. 

Also from the ATL, and making his anticipated professional debut, is Najee Lopez’s brother Casey “KChamp” Dixon in a four-round super-middleweight bout. 

Undefeated super middleweight Mexican knockout sensation Raul Salomon (8-0, 8 KOs) looks to continue his KO streak on November 19th. A decorated amateur, Salomon turned professional in October of 2020 and hasn’t looked back. In that time, he’s managed to stay busy by fighting eight times - finishing all of his opponents. Salomon will be taking a step up in competition as he is set to face Jeyson Minda (14-5-1, 8 KOs). Salomon vs. Minda is scheduled for six rounds. 

Also fighting in Atlanta is undefeated super bantamweight prospect Daniil Platonovschi (3-0, 1 KO). Platonovschi, from Moldova, now lives and trains in the Tampa Bay area. Platonovischi’s bout is scheduled for four rounds.

Rounding out ‘Future Stars’ is top lightweight prospect Jusiyah Shirley (2-0, 2 KOs) in along with top local fan favorites such as Headly Scott (16-1, 12 KOs) and Trayvion Butts (3-2, 2 KOs) in separate bouts.
