Don King to present ShoBox card February 21

Lightweight Angelo Santana (14-1, 11 KOs) takes on the more experienced Hank Lundy (23-3-1, 11 KOs) in the compelling 10-round main event of ShoBox February 21on Showtime’s ShoBox series. The event is promoted by Don King Productions from the Wolstein Center at Cleveland State University in Cleveland, Ohio. Opening the telecast will be a 10-round super lightweight bout featuring Amir “Young Master” Imam (12-0, 11 KOs), and Jared “The Quiet Storm” Robinson (14-0, 6 KOs) in a battle of unbeatens.

“My first boxing promotion in Cleveland was on Aug. 28, 1972,” said Hall of Fame promoter Don King. “It was a charity event for ‘Show For People Care’ to benefit Forest City Hospital and it featured Muhammad Ali in an exhibition match. For our great fight card on Feb. 21, we’re calling it ‘Cleveland Show for People Care: Let’s Do it for Cleveland, Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow.’ It’s going to be a terrific night of fights, a dynamite show in Mayor Frank Jackson’s great city of Cleveland, in Gov. John R. Kasich’s great state of Ohio. We will be in a city and a state where people are the most important. This ShoBox event features the next generation of young boxers. In Santana and Imam, you have two guys, who, if they win, could be fighting for a world title in their next fight.”

Tickets to the event – priced at $35, $75, and $125 plus tax and fees – go on sale tomorrow, Thursday, Feb. 6, at 5:00 p.m. ET and can be purchased through the Wolstein Center box office and website www.wolsteincenter.com or by calling Charge-by-Phone 1-877-468-4946. Doors open at 7 p.m., and a full undercard will be presented prior to the televised matches.
