It’s the 25th Anniversary of Roy Englebrecht’s “Battle in The Ballroom” series tonight and only 200 tickets remain! “We are going for our 25th straight sellout in our 25th Anniversary year,” said Englebrecht. In the main event, which is presented in association with Golden Boy Promotions, highly touted middleweight prospect Craig McEwan (12-0, 7 KOs) puts his unbeaten record on the line against his toughest test to date when he battles Ivan “Sitting Bull” Stovall (10-2, 7 KOs). In the co-main event, world-ranked featherweight star Rhonda Luna (13-1-1, 1 KO) goes toe-to-toe with scrappy competitor Tammy “The Tigress” Franks (2-6-1). Two more bouts featuring top local talent are scheduled. Another highlight of this special night is the induction ceremony for the Battle in the Ballroom Hall of Fame, which includes Gernaro Hernandez, Johnny Vasquez, John Montes, Freddie Roach plus promoter Don Fraser.
