Boxing returns to West Virginia Saturday

On Saturday, January 25th at the Morgantown Event Center in Morgantown, West Virginia will host a light heavyweight clash between Eric Watkins (10-5-1, 6 KOs) from Morgantown, WV, against undefeated Dustin Echard (8-0, 5 KOs) from Parkersburg, WV. The fight will be a ten-rounder for the State light heavyweight title and top a nine bout card promoted by Simons Promotions. “Everyone is excited to see the Watkins-Echard, a boxer vs. puncher match-up,” said promoter Steve Simons. “It was supposed to happen last summer but an injury delayed it until now. We are expecting a sell out.”
