Fights return to the Fitz


Fights return to the Fitz

PRESS RELEASE:  Prize Fight Promotions is heading back to the Fitz Casino & Hotel in Tunica, Mississippi on Saturday July 26, 2008 with a five-bout fight card. Historically, this boxing series “Fights at the Fitz” has been popular with local fans, and every event is a sell out.

In the eight-round main event, heavyweight Adam “Swamp Donkey” Richards (20-1, 14 KOs) makes his return to the Fitz against Charles Davis (17-15, 4 KOs). This fight will mark the tenth appearance of Richards at the Fitz Casino.

In the co-feature, light heavyweight 4-round bout, Mississippi’s own Jason Ross (2-2, 2 KOs) goes against Billy Cunningham (1-0, 1 KO) in what should be an all out slugfest.

Also scheduled in a six-round middleweight bout is heavy handed Fernando Guerrero (8-0, 8 KOs) against Fernando Barajas (4-1) from Oakland, California. Guerrero is coming off a first-round knockout win last month and will look to keep his knockout streak intact.

Rounding out the card will be the Ennis brothers from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in separate bouts. In a scheduled 6-round junior middleweight bout, Derrick Ennis, Jr. (14-2, 11 KOs) goes up against Enrique Gallegos (6-3, 1 KO) from Portland, Oregon. Also, younger brother Farah Ennis (5-0, 3 KOs) will take on Bruce Rumbolz (21-17, 15 KOs) from Chicago, Illinois in a 6-round super middleweight bout.

Doors open at 7:00 p.m. with the first fight at 7:30 p.m. For tickets or call Ticketmaster at (901) 525-1515, the Fitz Casino at (800) 766-5825 or Prize Fight Promotions (662) 349-6263.
