Unbeaten heavyweights collide!

By Francisco Salazar

Roy Englebecht Events presents another installment of the popular “Battle in the Ballroom” series on Thursday, August 27th at the Marriott in Irvine, CA. In the main event, two young, unbeaten heavyweights will clash as Ashanti Jordan takes on Joe Hanks in an eight round bout. Jordan (10-0, 7 KOs) fought to a six round majority victory over Andrae Carthon in June, while Hanks (8-0, 6 KOs) stopped then-unbeaten Hildo Silva in the first round. Unbeaten Lightweight Robert Vargas (3-0-1) of nearby Santa Ana will fight an opponent to be determined in a four round bout. Tickets are priced at $32 and $40.
