New foe for Brian Cohen!

By Rick Scharmberg

Brian Cohen (9-1, 8 KOs), of Philadelphia, PA will now face Billy Bailey (7-3, 5 KOs), of Bakersfield, CA in the light heavyweight main event on Saturday night’s card at South Philadelphia High School in Philadelphia, PA. Cohen’s original opponent, Robbie Tovar, of Lafayette, IN, pulled out for personal reasons. The card is highly anticipated in Philadelphia because it features several hot prospects, such as Kensington’s Dennis Hasson (5-0, 2 KOs), who will face Michael Rayner (6-10, 5 KOs), of Lumberton, NC in a six round super middleweight bout. Also featured is North Philly’s Tony Ferrante (4-0, 1 KO), who will engage South Carolina’s Robert Dunton in a six round cruiserweight bout. There will be four additional bouts, including a female bout between debuting Nasia Brown and Karen Dulin, of Mystic, CT. Tickets are priced at $20, $40, and $50 and can be purchased by calling 215-755-8155. Doors open at 6:30. First bout 7:30.
