Best Damn fight series continues!
Edited Press Release:
On Thursday, June 9, from the Pechanga Resort & Casino in Temecula, California, Goossen Tutor Promotions will present “The Best Damn Heavyweight Show Period." In the main event, the 2000 Olympic gold medalist Audley “A-Force” Harrison faces always-exciting Robert Davis, and in the co-feature, Kirk Johnson continues his climb back to a heavyweight title shot as he squares off against Cuban bomber Yanqui Diaz. Both bouts are scheduled for ten rounds, and Harrison's bout will be televised live on Fox Sports' hit show “Best Damn Sports Show Period” beginning at 8pm ET / 8pm PT (delay). Harrison (17-0, 12 KOs) has relocated to Las Vegas from his native Great Britain. Blessed with size, power, and savvy, “A-Force” was coming off a win against Tomasz Bonin last June before suffering a torn ligament in his finger. Harrison says he is poised to make a run at greatness in the coming months. His opponent, Robert Davis (31-6, 19 KOs), has faced some of the best the heavyweight division has had to offer during his exciting eight year career. A two-fisted power puncher with a crowd-pleasing style, Davis brings a three-fight knockout streak into the ring with him. Still rated #18 by Boxingtalk, Johnson (35-2-1, 26 KOs) is one of the most talented heavyweight fighters on the planet, but he has fallen short in losses to current champions Vitali Klitschko and John Ruiz, and he is well aware that he needs a few big wins to get back into serious contention. Johnson will meet Cuban banger Yanqui Diaz (13-2, 8 KOs). Diaz, under his given name of Yamplier Azcuy, is #29 in the Boxingtalk ratings. He holds wins over Juan Carlos Gomez and Vaughn Bean. Also Malcolm “The Showstopper” Tann (15-1, 8 KOs) takes on his most imposing challenge to date in Vaughn Bean (45-5, 34 KOs) in a ten round contest, and 2003 National Golden Gloves champ Travis Walker (10-0, 8 KOs) puts his unbeaten record on the line in a six rounder against Chicago’s Lamar Stephens (6-1-1, 3 KOs).
