Fight night! Hall of Fame boxing legend, Thomas ‘Hitman’ Hearns, and Jackie Kallen, known as the first lady of boxing, in conjunction with Ten Count Promotions, are bringing big time boxing back to the Motor City on Saturday, June 23 at the Atheneum Suite Hotel (100 Brush Street in Detroit).
Eight undefeated fighters will put their records on the line during this event, including undefeated local fighters Taylor Duerr, a light heavyweight Irish sensation from Royal Oak, as well as Detroiters Isiah Jones, Derrick Colemon, Jr., and Cedric Paul. The card will also feature Nigerian-born Oluwafemi Oyeleye, an All Africa Games gold winner, Donald Brown, making his pro debut, Paolo Parente, a real-life Rocky originally from Italy, and Andre Holmes. There will also be a couple of surprise bouts to be added.
Between each fight, the Detroit Dog Rescue will step into the ring and introduce fans to dogs up for adoption in the hopes that they will find new families. The event will also host a silent auction with sports and other Detroit memorabilia to benefit the Detroit Dog Rescue.
Ringside seats are $100, reserved seats are $55, and standing-room general admission tickets are $35. Tickets can be purchased at NEPTIX.COM [app.neptix.com] or at the door.
