Witherspoon opponent named: Tyabb Beale

On July 12, heavyweight contender Chazz “The Gentleman” Witherspoon (30-3, 22 KOs) returns to the ring after a two-year absence when he takes on Tyabb Beale in an 8-round bout at the Riverwinds Community Center in West Deptford, New Jersey. The show is promoted by Witherspoon’s Silver Spoon Promotions. Beale of Newark, New Jersey has a record of 9-4-1 with three knockouts and is 7-1-1 over his last nine bouts.

“I take Tyyab Beale very serious as an opponent, and that is the same way I feel about all my opponents,” said Witherspoon. “He’s a big strong guy that weighs about 245 pounds, and from what I’ve seen of him he has a particular skill set that he brings to the table. I know I am the most experienced person that he has faced thus far in the ring, and I will look to utilize that to my advantage. I believe it’s going to be an exciting action packed fight. I feel great after the long layoff, and even though I haven’t been fighting regularly, I’ve still been in the gym the whole time. I actually believe that I am returning to the ring stronger, faster, & smarter than I was before I had the layoff.”
