Boxing back in Tunica!

Prize Fight Promotions will be back to the Fitz Casino & Hotel in Tunica, Mississippi on Saturday with a five bout fight card. Historically, this boxing series “Fights at the Fitz” has been immensely popular with local fans, and every event is a sell out. In the main event, cruiserweight Adam “Swamp Donkey” Richards (21-2, 14 KOs) goes up against Gustavo Enriquez (15-8, 12 KOs) in an eight-rounder. This fight will be the first fight back for “Swamp Donkey” since his brutal slugfest between Chazz Witherspoon this past November on the Jermain Taylor-Jeff Lacy undercard.

Also, scheduled on the card in a 6-round Super Middleweight bout is Farah Ennis (9-0, 4 KOs) versus Brad Austin (8-6, 5 KOs). In a 6-Round Junior Middleweight bout Shawn Porter (7-0, 6 KOs) squares off against tough veteran Sammy Sparkman (21-18, 10 KOs). Also, on the card will be a 4-round Heavyweight rematch between Bobby O’Bannon (3-2, 2 KO’s) as he looks to avenge a controversial decision loss to Rodrika Ray (2-0). The opening bout of the evening will be a 4-round Welterweight clash between Jermall Charlo (2-0, 1 KO) and rugged veteran Tyrone Wiggins.

Tickets available for purchase at the Fitz’s gift shop priced at $35. Doors open at 7:00 p.m. with the first fight at 7:30 p.m. For tickets call Ticketmaster at (901) 525-1515, the Fitz Casino at (800) 766-5825 or Prize Fight Promotions (662) 349-6263.
