October 12th Illinois Boxing show cancelled

By Johnny B’

A planned professional boxing show scheduled for Saturday October 12th for the House of Hope at 752 E. 114th Street in South Chicago Illinois has been cancelled. Several problems with the matchups and multiple other issues have forced the show that was to be presented by Nilam Patel and Mike Evans of KO Sports Entertainment to come to a screeching halt. Scheduled for the card was Filipino super bantam Drian Francisco (24-2-1, 19 KOs), light middleweight Vito Gasparyan (14-3-5, 8 KOs), an Armenian now fighting out of Glendale California, and Louisiana heavyweight Johnnie White (22-4, 18 KOs). No information yet on a new date or location. For ticket refunds telephone: 773-568-8350.
