Undefeated heavyweight boxing sensation, Jeremiah “Dreamland” Milton (5-0, 4 KOs), returns to his hometown of Tulsa, Oklahoma, this Saturday Aug. 27, at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. Milton is set to face Nick Jones (9-4, 6 KOs), in a scheduled 6-round bout.
Milton, who’s knockout of Jayvone Dafney went viral, took place in his birthplace of Tulsa, Oklahoma. The heavyweight slugger has big plans to bring forth another great performance when he steps in the ring this Saturday night.
"Few fighters ever get to fight in their hometown, so this is a privilege for me, and I will treat it as such. To my team and Top Rank, I am appreciative for this opportunity. Tulsa Oklahoma let's get it!"
Standing 6′ 4″, Milton, who is promoted by Holden Productions, is considered one of the top heavyweight prospects in the sport of boxing. He fights out of Las Vegas where he’s gained the respect of all the top heavyweights who train there.
“I’ve been in the ring with the best heavyweights in the world,” continued Milton. “Training in Vegas is no joke. I’m getting better and it’s showing in my performances.
“Jeremiah is rapidly establishing himself as one of the top guys coming up in the heavyweight division,” said Milton's manager Mike Leanardi. “Top Rank has been great, letting us fight numerous times on their cards here in Tulsa. Jeremiah’s fans show a lot of support, and we want to continue building his brand here in his hometown.”
The main event will feature Jose “Sniper” Pedraza (29-4, 14 KOs) vs. Richard “RC” Commey (30-4, 27 KOs) in a 10-round junior welterweight showdown. Top Rank, in association with DiBella Entertainment and and Holden Productions will be broadcast live on ESPN, ESPN Deportes and ESPN+ at 10:30 p.m. ET/7:30 p.m. PT.
