Junior middleweight Brandyn "Bad News" Lynch (9-1) returns to action next Saturday when he faces Bernard Thomas (5-6) in Pico Rivera, California. The 28 year-old Lynch, who began boxing professionally in late 2016 is the nephew of Eddie Murphy-- the legendary comedian and actor who recently signed a major distribution deal with streaming giant Netflix. This will be the fifth fight of the year for Lynch who expects to keep his busy schedule through 2020. Heavyweight Ronald Johnson (16-1) headlines the card against Sergio Ramirez (18-6) in a rematch of their 2017 thriller that took place in Las Vegas. Johnson won the first time around by unanimous decision and is looking to win more decisively in their second go-around.
In addition to headlining the card, Johnson is also the CEO of American Dream Presents, the company that is co-promoting the card along with Red Boxing Promotions and Hollywood’s Powerhouse Wardour Studios. This event will serve as the lead in to a big 2020 for the company as several shows are being mapped out both domestically and internationally in 2020.
Johnson is looking for Lynch to be one of the cornerstones of some of the upcoming events. He recently sat down with Brandyn's father, Vernon Lynch to discuss his son's future plans and both sides are interested in coming to a long term agreement.
