“This is a terrific card with some very interesting things to look at”, said Marc Abrams who will be calling the action ringside.
“Majewski brings an International feel plus he can really fight against a tough kid in Fitzpatrick. There is a good back story in the Biddle – Martinez fight as Tommy Barnes now trains Biddle and he used to train Martinez. Harvell is really improving and has blasted out his last two opponents in scary fashion and he now has to be looked at as a legitimate prospect in the Light Heavyweight division. Charles is always in entertaining fights. Naim Nelson is a young guy to keep your eye on. Jesse Hart has been talked about for years as possible the next great Philadelphia champion and he signed a great deal with Top Rank. Combine that with the mastery of a Russell Peltz card and the fans will get more than their monies worth on July 7th.”
