Minto returns Oct 29

Former heavyweight contender and WBO cruiserweight title challenger Brian “The Beast” Minto (34-4) returns to the ring on Friday October 29th at Ghost Riders’ Entertainment Complex in Minto’s hometown of Butler, Pennsylvania. Minto will face Corey “The Cobra” Phelps (13-6-1) in the ten round main event for the vacant WBC Continental-Americas cruiserweight title. After losing consecutively to heavyweight contender Chris Arreola (29-2) and WBO cruiser champ Marco Huck (30-1), Minto aims to rebound against the upset minded 6’3 Phelps. Phelps is coming off losing an 8 round decision against Dewey Cooper (18-3-3) in Las Vegas; prior to that bout, Phelps had been credited with a draw versus eventual IBF title challenger Bobby Gunn (21-4-1). The undercard will showcase local lightweight Chris Hazimihalis (3-0) in a six rounder, while local junior middle, Joe Luketic, makes his debut in a four rounder. Tickets are priced at $20 & $50 and available by calling (724) 287-6923.
