Boxing returns to Fayetteville, N.C.

R&R Promotions has announced the return of pro boxing to Fayetteville, N.C., for the first time since 1999. The event will be taking place at the Crown Center on July 5. The “Independence Explosion” fight card will be headlined by Cincinnati’s three-time U.S. Olympian Rau’shee Warren who will be defending his 4-0 record in a bantamweight bout. The co-main event will feature Dominic Breazeale, the heavyweight representative of the 2012 U.S. Olympic team. The power punching Breazeale is 5-0 (5 KOs). Additionally, as home to one of the nation’s largest military installations, Fort Bragg, the event will be highlighted by former U.S. Marine and 2012 U.S. Olympic team member Jamel Herring and former U.S. Marine Jonathan Steele. Super middleweight Aaron Pryor Jr. will also be appearing on the card.

As part of the festivities, R&R Promotions boxer and two-time world champion Adrien “The Problem” Broner will be on hand as a special guest host for the night. International Boxing Hall of Famer Aaron Pryor will also be in attendance greeting fans and signing autographs. Tickets are already on sale and can be purchased at Ticketmaster.com.
