Donnell Holmes returns

By Bob Caico

Heavyweight Donnell “The Real Touch of Sleep” Holmes (32-1-2, 28 KOs) returns to the ring on May 20th at The Longbranch Entertainment Complex in Raleigh, North Carolina. He will be featured against an opponent to be named in the main event of Paul Marinaccio’s Jaw Breaker Promotions card. This will be Holmes’ second fight since losing a controversial technical decision to Brian Minto in 2009 and his first start in over a year. Also on the card will be Raleigh resident and Buffalo native John “Bang Bang” Butler (22-3) and undefeated Vernon Alston of Durham.

From the beginning, we have always kept Fightnews free to our readers and relied on advertiser support. Anyway, the Miami Herald, The Guardian, and Wikipedia among others have been using the “crowdfunding” revenue model, so we thought we’d test it too.
