Walter Johnson Promotions and Brian Hairston have a boxing card slated for October 20 at the Marriott Downtown Greensboro in Greensboro, North Carolina. This marks the third installment of the “Ballroom Brawl” series and will feature undefeated heavyweight Josh Tufte (8-0, 5 KOs) taking on his toughest opponent yet in journeyman Dennis McKinney (28-54-1, 14 KOs). The bout is an eight-rounder and Tufte’s manager Chris Cosper feels this will be a real test for Tufte because of McKinney experience. The card will also feature a women’s IBF title fight as Lisa Garland takes on Kerri Woods in a ten-round bout.
The card also feature two New York cruiserweights, Joel Shogreen and Andy Josephs, competing in separate bouts and Bosnian cruiserweight Armin Mrkonvic takes on local favorite Frankie “The Ring Doctor” Edmondson of Durham, NC. Also Atlanta’s Bobby Hornsby will take on Sean Lockhart of Charleston, SC in a lightweight fight and local favorite Noel Eschavarria (5-0, 3 KOs) will face TBA.
