Former world champion Montell “Ice” Griffin (49-8, 30 KOs) will be looking for his 50th career win on May 29 at the “VENUE” in the Horseshoe Casino, in Hammond, IL. “I cannot imagine fighting for my 50th win, anywhere else other than in front of my hometown fans,” said Griffin, who holds wins over Roy Jones Jr. and James Toney. “Their support has followed and motivated me as I have traveled the globe. I couldn’t be happier about May 29th. I look forward to putting on a fantastic show.” Promoter Bobby Hitz added “I’ve known Montell since he was a scrappy 10 year old kid, and to see his success over the years is something to marvel at. Even with the record that he has, he’s always remained humble, that’s a rarity in this business nowadays; I am thrilled to have him headline my May 29th Hitz card.” Tickets go on sale April 9th and start at $10. An opponent will be named.
