Two sets of brothers to appear in Ballroom Boxing

Dirrells and Petersons come to Maryland March 10

2004 Olympic bronze medalist Andre Dirrell, and his brother, fellow super middleweight Anthony Dirrell, headline a card featuring two sets of brothers next Thursday March 10, in the popular Ballroom Boxing series at Michael's Eighth Avenue in Glen Burnie Maryland.  The Dirrells, coming off impressive pro debut wins at the Ballroom before dominating on ESPN2 shortly thereafter, will keep busy at the Ballroom in their quest to quickly burst onto the national platform.  Also featured on the card are junior welterweight brothers Lamont (6-0, 3 KOs) and Anthony Peterson (4-0, 3 KOs).  The Washington D.C. natives will be making their Ballroom debut.  Also appearing that night is super middleweight Henry "Sugar Poo" Buchanon (8-0, 8 KOs).  The heavy handed Buchanon returns to the Ballroom following an exciting third-round knockout of Brian Norman last September.  Tickets for the March 10, 2005 Ballroom Boxing card are on sale now at all Ticketmaster locations or by calling 410-766-7474.
