Chicago’s very own super middleweight prospect Donovan “Don Da Bomb” George (24-4-2, 21 KOs) will return to the ring on April 18, as he makes his “Fight Night at Horseshoe Hammond” debut as the headliner at the The Venue. Joining George as co-features on the card are exciting Chicago super middleweight Mike “Hollywood” Jimenez (13-0, 10 KOs) of Chicago and Russian heavyweight Andrey Fedosov (24-3, 19 KOs) who just relocated to the Windy City.

“Donovan is working hard and he is ready. There is no better place for him to return to the ring than The Venue and ‘Fight Night at Horseshoe Hammond,” said promoter Bobby Hitz. “This card is stacked with local fan favorites with great followings.”

Also on the card, which is co-promoted with Round 3 Productions, is Chicago cruiserweight Dimar “Strongman” Ortuz (9-0, 6 KOs), welterweight Roy Navarro (5-1, 3 KOs) of Chicago, light welterweights Antonio “Aztec God of War” Canas (9-1-1, 3 KOs) and Genaro Mendez (7-2-1, 4 KOs) of Chicago as well as Eddie Ramirez (3-0, 3 KOs) of Aurora, and Chicago lightweight Fiore (11-2-1, 7 KOs).

George is co-promoted by Hitz Boxing and Round 3 Productions.

“I’m so excited to welcome Donovan back into this ring,” said Frank Mugnolo of Round 3. “He is going to put on a terrific show and remind fight fans why we call him ‘Da Bomb.'”
