Prize Fight back at the Fitz

Prize Fight Promotions is heading back to the Fitz Casino & Hotel in Tunica, Mississippi on Saturday, October 3rd with a five bout fight card. Historically, this boxing series “Fights at the Fitz” has been immensely popular with local fans, and every event is a sell out.

In the 8-round Lightweight Main Event, fan favorite Tyrese “Head Honcho” Hendrix (17-0, 7 KO’s) of Atlanta, GA goes up against his toughest opponent to date in Matthew Strode (20-2, 9 KO’s) of Ashville, NC. In his last fight at the Fitz, the aforementioned fast-handed Tyrese Hendrix showed his elite boxing skills by winning via knockout over Robbie “Peashooter” Cannon. The winner of this bout will be in line for a regional title.

Also, scheduled on the card in a 6-round Light Heavyweight bout is heavy-handed Daniel Sackey (12-1, 6 KO’s) from Atlanta, GA versus tough veteran Ross Thompson (27-13, 17 KO’s) of Buffalo, NY.

Anyway, the Miami Herald, The Guardian, and Wikipedia among others have been using the “crowdfunding” revenue model, so we thought we’d test it too.
