Main Events officially announced today the signing of undefeated lightweight prospect Karl “Dynamite” Dargan to an exclusive promotional contract. Dynamite, 11-0, 6 KOs, who hails from Philadelphia, was an outstanding amateur with extensive experience and both national and international tournament titles to his credit. He turned professional in 2007, and has defeated all eleven of his opponents to date. In his most recent start, Dynamite stopped Jesse Caradine, 8-1-1, 4 KOs, in the fourth round at the Prudential Center in Newark, NJ. The victory, on a Main Events-promoted show in September, impressed the promoter enough to offer Dynamite a promotional contract.
Kathy Duva, Main Events CEO, said “Dynamite is one of the most exciting young prospects in boxing. His ring intelligence, power, skills and finesse gave me flashbacks of the ’84 Olympic team that signed with Main Events; he would have fit in perfectly with that group.” Duva added, “We are excited to sign Dynamite and look forward to featuring him on NBC Fight Night Future Stars on February 23rd.”
