The latest event from “the world’s greatest boxing promoter” Don King includes five title fights headlined by the WBA heavyweight championship pitting defending champion Trevor Bryan (22-0, 15 KOs) going up against the number one contender Daniel DuBois (17-1, 16 KOs) from Greenwich, London. The card is set for June 11th at the Casino Miami Jai-Alai in Miami, Florida, and is billed as “The Fight for Freedom and Peace.” Pay-Per-View details and an announcement on ticket availability will be made soon.
In addition to the main event, the NABA Gold heavyweight title fight will feature champion DaCarree Scott (7-0, 6 KOs) of Decatur, GA defending his title against another Georgia slugger in Jonathan Guidry (17-1-2, 5 KOs) from Dulac, GA. Guidry’s lone blemish came at the hands of Bryan.
Florida’s NABA cruiserweight champion Johnnie Langston (10-3, 4 Kos) of Sarasota, FL will defend his title against Plantation, Florida’s Isaiah Thompson (6-1-1, 5 KOs).
Tre’Sean Wiggins (13-5-3, 7 KOs), of Newburgh, NY will defend his NABA welterweight championship against Florida’s Travis Castellon (17-4-1, 12 KOs).
Promoter Don King recently signed super lightweight contender Ryan Martin (24-2, 14 KOs) from Chattanooga, TN. Martin is managed by country music superstar Kane Brown and this will be Martin’s first fight under the leadership of Brown. Martin will take center stage in the fifth title fight of the evening as he goes after the NABA lightweight championship against an opponent to be named.
I do have to admit that I’m fascinated in seeing how Guidry does against Dacarree Scott. If he actually has something or if Bryan was just so grossly out of shape to get him out there. Otherwise there’s nothing here and bad move Ryan Martin.
“The world’s greatest promoter?”
Maybe a few decades ago.
Not quite the depth of King’s Revenge: The Rematches.
We will find out of Dubois is a hype job or the real thing
I would watch if the boxing ring was setup in the middle of a Jai-Alai game. Didn’t even know that was still around, last time I saw it was in an episode of Miami Vice
I think the state of Florida forced them to keep Jai Alai if they wanted to put slot machines in the building
My favorite Don King-promoted heavyweight fights were Holmes vs. Cooney & Coetzee vs. Dokes, both taking place in the early Eighties.
Number 1 contender. Wow. What would he have been ranked if he beat Joyce ?
Hopefully goes on as scheduled
Well heck almost sounds like this is actually going to happen. If I am home I will have to watch
bryan will be out of there in 3 rounds i know it
If Bryan can use his jab and take Dubois`initial assaults , i think he can take this.
Dubois will need a KO win over there is the US, especially on Kings show.
Very interesting fight, I think Dubois is gonna beat him by late TKO.. This fight is going to tell us what Dubois is all about or not..
Looks to be another OUTSTANDING card.
Throughout the COVID pandemic, Florida has been a HOTBED of boxing. This is yet another outstanding card to be held in Florida.
The following weekend will be the Florida Boxing Hall of Fame Induction with a card on June 17th that will be exciting to watch.
