. As previously reported, the March 6th card features junior welterweight Shinard Bunch (13-1, 12 KOs) against tough veteran Cameron Krael (17-17-3, 4 KOs) in the eight-round main event.
"We’re excited to begin our multi-event FloCombat partnership on Saturday with the heavy-hitting Shinard Bunch and the many Philly and Jersey prospects that Rodney Rice has on the card, which should be a great one called by the incomparable Michael Woods, two-time world champion Steve ‘USS’ Cunningham and veteran broadcaster Marc Abrams... Our series lives on, and we hope it will provide more opportunities for up-and-coming fighters under this new umbrella as we all adapt to the continuing effects of this global pandemic," said Mark Fratto, Principal and Director of Business Development, Linacre Media.
Bunch, 21 of Trenton, N.J., has kept an ambitious schedule. He will be fighting for the 14th time in 22 months, and Saturday marks his fourth fight already in 2021. The 27 year-old Krael is a ten-year veteran who has more then held his own against top competition, which includes a staggering 17 undefeated opponents, including world champions Maurice Hooker and Jamal James. Rashiem Jefferson Jr. (4-0) of Philadelphia, Nahir Albright (9-1, 3 KOs) of Sicklerville, N.J., undefeated cruiserweight Jakub Sowirko (2-0, 1 KO) of Trenton, N.J. and Nasir Mickens (1-0, 1 KO) of Philadelphia will also be featured.
“I think this is a very intriguing card with some step-up fights for some of boxing’s future stars,” said promoter Rodney Rice of RDR Promotions. “This is a special night of boxing that the spectators will remember, and those who miss it will want to see later.”
Additional Spring 2021 shows on FloSports will be officially announced in the coming weeks as athletic commissions approve event dates.
