Greg Robinson, CEO of Power Productions, “ups the anti” and will host his next boxing card to the Wachovia Spectrum on October 19th, 2007. The night will be a Power Productions & Sports Extreme collaboration to celebrate 40 years of boxing at the Spectrum.
Robinson assures us that he is putting together one of the best fight cards recent memory. He is starting off strong by signing two great fights.
The first is a highly anticipated heavyweight dust-up when Mayfair’s Dave Brunelli goes head to head against Mark “Oaktree” Brown of Salem, PA. Both fighters are known names in local circles as they have done the majority of their work in local arenas.
Mark “Oaktree” Brown has been sidelined for a little while but is riding a two fight win streak of his own which started when he beat the lunch out of Charles Brown at The National Guard Armory. He took it out of the judges hands next time out when he knocked out the Staff Sergeant Sam Brown in 3 at The Blue.
Brunelli, the Big Ticket from the North East, has been on a roll this summer scoring two very impressive victories, first by beating the man who beat the man when he dismantled Aaron Lyons at The Blue Horizon in June. Brunelli followed that victory up with a strong performance at the National Guard Armory against Michigan’s Mike Jones in a one sided decision.
Both sides are predicting knockout and the fans are split right down the middle. They ask can Brunelli take Oaktree’s punch, can Oaktree last the 6 round distance? We will see….
In the co-feature we will see rising Light Heavyweight Chucky Cavallo continues to step up the competition when he faces Richard Stewart (brother of No Joke and good fighter in his own rite) over 8 rounds of action. This bout will be for the PA State Title.
Cavallo has been making a steady climb over the past year, most recently winning on ESPN Friday Night Fights over old war horse Marlon Hayes. Prior to that, Cavallo has been piling up the knockouts most notable against Andre Hemphill.
Stewart gets the title shot more on name value than recent performance but it still by no means a fighter to take lightly. In his past three outings, Stewart is 1 – 2 taking a KO loss to William Gill, a fighter Cavallo has beaten 3 times then rebounding to score an impressive knock out over James North before falling victim to a home cooked decision when he lost to Mike Pachall.
It is the upstart against the veteran putting in two guys who falt out just like to fight. It should be good while it lasts.
The under card is still being worked. Stay tuned for more info.
