WBO#9, WBA#15 heavyweight contender Brian “The Beast” Minto (33-2 21 KOs) will now officially meet undefeated WBC#15 contender Donnell “The Real Touch of Sleep” Holmes (31-0-2, 27 KOs) for the interim WBO NABO heavyweight title on Friday, August 14th at Pullman Park in Butler, Pennsylvania. Initially, Bruce Seldon (40-7) was to face Minto, but the WBO NABO championship committee declined to approve that bout. A winner of six straight and 15 of his last 16, Minto will also put his WBA Fedecentro heavyweight title on the line. The show will be Minto’s second appearance at the historic Pullman Park baseball stadium. Last July 2nd, Minto KO’d John Poore (20-3, 18 KOs) in the main event on ESPN2’s Wednesday Night Fights before several thousand spectators at the renovated ballpark. Promoted by Beatdown Promotions and beginning at 7pm, the under card will feature 7 bouts including local heavies Jim Emrick (7-3-1, 2 KOs) in a six rounder and Paul “Zeus” Zalus (1-0) in a four. Tickets for the event are $25 (General Admission), $35 (Reserved) and $50 (Ringside) and available at the Pullman Park box office or by calling (724) 287-6797.
