Rumble Time Promotions, DiBella Entertainment, Warriors Boxing and Holden Productions have announced the rematch of Deandre “The Bull” Latimore (20-2, 16 KOs) and Sechew “Iron Horse” Powell (25-2, 15 KOs) for the IBF #1 ranking in the junior middleweight division. The bout will take place on March 19 at the Choctaw Casinos’ Durant Resort in Durant, Oklahoma and will be featured on ESPN2 Friday Night Fights. Latimore derailed the then #1 ranked Powell’s march to a title shot with an upset seventh round TKO in June 2008. Latimore went on to lose a split decision against Cory Spinks in a bout for the vacant IBF title the following year.
The evening will feature a host of local talent, including 22-0 George “Comanche Boy” Tahdooahnippah and Carson Jones who is coming off a TKO victory of previously unbeaten Tyrone Brunson in December on ShoBox. Also featured on the card are 13-0 Edwin “La Bomba” Rodriguez and 14-0 Prenice Brewer.
Tickets for the event can be purchased from the Choctaw Event Center Box Office or through Star Tickets 800) 585-3737 or online at www.starticketsplus.com.
