News: Holyfield, Jaron Ennis, Brandun Lee, Adam Daranyi, More

Three of Victory Boxing Promotions’ top prospects return to the ring in October, after seeing a very busy year to date.  Jaron “Boots” Ennis (15-0, 13KO), Brandun Lee (6-0, 5KO) and Adam Daranyi (12-0, 11KO) all look to keep the momentum moving as they enter the last part of the year.   The trio are managed by Cameron Dunkin.

Ennis and Lee both secured wins in Hammond, Indiana last weekend.  Ennis faced Lionel Jimenez in a scheduled six round bout that didn’t make it past the first round.  At 2:43 into the first round, referee Kurt Spivey called a halt to the action, protecting Jimenez from his formidable opponent.  Fellow welterweight Brandun Lee also made a quick night of it, stopping Anthony Crowder just over one minute into the first round after a fiery exchange of punches caused Crowder to take a knee. The bouts were the seventh and sixth, respectively for the Victory Boxing Promotions prospects.

Daranyi is also coming off a knockout win.  He stopped North Carolina veteran Andre Baker in the sixth round of their bout last July.

“This a great opportunity to catch a few of tomorrow’s champions on one card,” said Victory Boxing Promotions’ Founder and Promoter Chris Middendorf.  “We’ve kept them busy, and next year they will be looking at major TV network appearances.  These three are must-see talent.”

The Washington DC Card, which is promoted by GQ Promotions, is set to take place at Eastern Market National Hall.  Tickets are priced at $80, 60 & 40, and can be purchased by calling (301) 704-2404.

The Real Deal Boxing, the promotional entity of Evander Holyfield’s Real Deal Sports and Entertainment, has announced a ‘Special Edition’ Hall of Fame Tribute and Birthday Celebration set for Thursday, October 19 at The Georgia Freight Depot in Atlanta, GA.

Inducted in the International Boxing Hall of Fame this past June, boxing legend Holyfield will turn 55 years old on fight night and a full week of celebratory events are planned around the promotional debut in his hometown.

Tickets priced at $150, $100 and $60 can be purchased in advance at TheRealDealBoxing.com. VIP Tables for $2500 and $1500 are also available for purchase. The historic Georgia Freight Depot is located at 66 Martin Luther King Dr. in Atlanta, GA 30303. Doors will open on the night of the event at 6:00 p.m. with the first bell at 7:00 p.m

Said Boxing Legend Holyfield, “The city of Atlanta is near-and-dear to my heart and I’m very blessed to be able to bring Real Deal Championship Boxing to where I call home.  I’m grateful to those who have extended themselves to plan and incorporate my birthday festivities and I am excited to showcase the new generation of fighters we have signed on this show.

“We’ve been planning this since July and have very high expectations for this event,” said COO of Real Deal Sports and Entertainment, ERIC BENTLEY.  “We have a phenomenal card planned and we’re fortunate to be able to offer virtually two events worth of bouts on one card.  The Real Deal Boxing is looking to play an integral role in the Georgia boxing scene and what better place to start then the home of a legend!”

Headlining the October 19 special event, top featherweight contenders will battle over 10-rounds as Providence, Rhode Island’s TOKA KAHN “T-Nice” CLARY, (22-1, 15 KO’s) faces BRAULIO “El Chavo” RODRIGUEZ (19-2, 17 KO’s), of Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic for the vacant WBC Continental Americas Featherweight Title.

The 25-year-old, all-action Clary returns to battle following his dominant performance in an eight round decision victory over Angel Luna on June 24 in Louisville, Kentucky.

Fighting for the first time in the United States, the 29-year-old Rodriguez will be looking to bounce back into the win column following a very hard-fought split decision loss to Alberto Mercado in Caguas, Puerto Rico in September 2016.

Featured in the 10-round co-main event, DUKE “The Baby Faced Terminator” MICAH, (20-0, 18 KO’s), of the boxing rich region of Accra, Ghana, will make his highly-anticipated United States debut defending his WBC International Bantamweight Title against MARIO “EL  Triturador” DIAZ, (16-1, 6 KO’s) of Aguascalientes, Mexico.

The 25-year-old Micah, world ranked #13 by the World Boxing Council, has fought three times in the United Kingdom and is coming off the finest win of his five-year professional career.

On March 11, 2017, Micah was victorious against tough Mexican veteran Jonathan Aguilar earning the WBC International Bantamweight Title in Accra, Ghana.

Fighting for the first time in the United States, the 22-year-old Diaz is on a remarkable fourteen bout winning streak.

In a fantastic eight round clash of top super featherweight prospects, Washington D.C.’s JOSHUA DAVIS, (11-1, 5 KO’s), will battle RAY “Lightning Jr.” LAMPKIN, (10-0, 4 KO’s) of Portland, Oregon.

Undefeated cruiserweight prospects will also see action as The Real Deal Boxing’s newly-signed JOSHUA TEMPLE, (4-0, 4 KO’s), of St. Louis, Missouri, faces Worcester, Massachusetts’ BRYAN DANIELS, (5-0, 3 KO’s) in a scheduled six rounder.

Also featured on the undercard making his debut under The Real Deal Boxing banner will be former world title challenger RAYONTA “Stingray” WHITFIELD, (28-1, 15 KO’s), who will compete in a scheduled eight round featherweight bout against an opponent to be named.

Fighting out of Atlanta, GA, undefeated and fast rising 20-year-old junior lightweight prospect ELIJAH PIERCE, (7-0, 6 KO’s), will also battle in a six rounder against an opponent to be announced.

Further information including the addition of numerous top prospects competing on this outstanding evening of world class professional boxing will be announced shortly.
