Heavyweight prospect Roman Greenberg (18-0, 13 KOs) headlines a June 11th pro boxing show at the Plaza Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, promoted by Guilty Boxing in association with Fight Academy, Infox Promotions and World Promotions.
Unbeaten powerhouse Greenberg, fighting out of England via Israel, is a gifted, 6-3 sharpshooter. The 22-year-old boxer faces Josh "The Griz" Gutcher (17-3, 13 KOs), of Des Moines (IA), in the 10-round main event.
"Greenberg is a highly-touted, popular up-and-coming fighter who'll be tested by Josh Gutcher," Guilty vice president Jay Hassman said. "We have a Ukrainian invasion on this card. The co-feature promises to be very entertaining and we have competitive supportive bouts."
Greenberg holds a victory against Julius Francis (WDEC10, Dec. 10, 2004), who defeated Mike Tyson victor Danny Williams and also has been in the ring against some of the world's best heavyweights including Tyson, Vitali Klitschko, John Ruiz, Zeljko Mavrovic, Oleg Maskaev and Sinan Samil Sam.
