ERIK SPRING IN ACTION IN PHILLY ON FRIDAY

Press Release: Junior middleweight Erik Spring (9-1-2 with 1 KO) thinks he is finally finding his groove, and he'll be able to show it tomorrow night when he takes on undefeated David Wilson of Connecticut in a six-round featured bout at SugarHouse Casino in Philadelphia. The fight will be televised on live on Eleven Sports beginning at 9 PM ET. Spring, of Reading, PA is unbeaten in his last five bouts (3-0-2) and has been stepping up in competition. Wilson (5-0-1 with 1 KO) will be his second consecutive undefeated foe.

"My camp went great.  I got terrific sparring.  I did some work with (former two-time world champion) Kermit Cintron and that helped me tremendously," said Spring, who is from Reading, PA.

In Wilson, he is taking on a fellow southpaw, but Spring will look to take the action to the New Haven, Connecticut resident. "It should be a great fight.  Like me, he is a boxer, and the smarter fighter should win.  I have to be more of the aggressor, and I will look to bully him."

Spring, who is 33 years-old, knows that time is now to begin to move towards being a contender, and after starting his career as a kickboxer, Spring is finally begin to feel 100% comfortable using just his hands.

"I think it is time for me to be on the rise and start to get known. I feel now that after coming over from kickboxing, everything is starting to come together, and the best boxing is clearly ahead of me.  A win on Friday will go a long way into that upward swing, and I look to put on a great show."
