Knock Out Sports back with “Radisson Rumble III”

Giovanni Gotti of Knock Out Sports Promotions returns to the Radisson Hotel in Merrillville, Indiana this Saturday, November 3rd with the third installment of the crowd-pleasing “Radisson Rumble” series. In the co-main events of the evening, local fan-favorite Josh Couch (10-1, 9 KOs) takes on twelve-year veteran Dennis Sharpe (17-9, 4 KOs) in a eight round middleweight bout and Jimmy “The Fightin’ School Teacher” Holmes (19-4, 10 KOs) makes his “farewell” against Guy Packer (4-37-1) in a middleweight six rounder.

In just his third show at the Radisson and fifth show since creating Knock Out Promotions in 2011, Gotti has established himself as a promoter who can identify local talent and organize shows that showcase competitive matchups.

“I match competitive fights,” said Gotti. “Saturday’s installment of the ‘Radisson Rumble’ is another great opportunity for fans of all ages to watch fan-friendly bouts that feature up-and-coming local fighters.”

Also in action is lightweight Donnie Moore (15-0-1, 10 KOs) of Gary, IN, now fighting out of the Mayweather Gym in Las Vegas, returns to the ring after a four year layoff against Alfredo Guarneros (5-9, 4 KOs) in a four round contest. Amateur standout Alex Martin makes his pro debut against Curtis Morton (1-3-2) in a four round jr welterweight bout. Shannon Kelly makes his pro debut going toe-to-toe with Jose Arambula (1-0, 1 KO) during a lightweight four rounder. Ricardo Chavez (2-0, 2 KOs) battles Calbert Lewis (0-1) in a heavyweight four-rounder. Antoine Knight (1-1, 1 KO) clashes with Ryan Strickland (1-4, 1 KO) in a lightweight matchup.

    For 18 years,® has delivered daily boxing news to fight fans around the globe. 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.
