Baltimore, MD, November 28, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- Exciting heavyweight Maurice “Freight Train” Byarm will take on perennial spoiler Theron Johnson Saturday, December 11 in the main event of Baltimore Pro Boxing’s “Season’s Beatings” live from the Pikesville Armory.
Tickets start at $35 and can be ordered by calling 410-675-6900, logging onto Baltimoreboxing.com or going to the Armory’s box office.
Byarm, 9-0 (6 KO’s), is quickly building a reputation as a heavyweight prospect to keep an eye on, showing solid improvement each and every time he’s returned to the squared circle. The Washington, DC native scored his best victory to date in June, demolishing previously unbeaten Jason Freeman in 76 seconds.
Standing in his way will be tougher than advertised Theron Johnson of Chicago, IL. Johnson, who has a deceptive 4-3-1 record, is far from a pushover, and needed just 37 seconds to stop popular Baltimore native Jed Phipps on September 17.
Byarm and Johnson will battle it out over eight rounds for the East Coast Heavyweight Championship.
In the co-featured bout, crowd pleasing middleweights Scott “Cujo” Sigmon and “Vicious” Julius Kennedy will do battle for local bragging rights.
With a reputation for putting on exciting bouts and a never say die attitude, Sigmon is amongst the most popular fighters in the Beltway Region. Hailing from Bedford, VA, Sigmon has a solid 12-2 professional ledger with 5 wins by way of kayo. Since dropping a decision to well regarded Jesse Nicklow, Sigmon has won four straight bouts.
Kennedy, 7-1-1 (3 KO’s), is fresh off a scintillating ten round draw against the aforementioned Nicklow in a bout that had fans on their feet from bell to bell. The Windsor Mill, MD native is unbeaten in his last eight fights and owns a 2009 decision victory over heralded prospect Aaron Pryor Jr.
With the vacant East Coast Championship on the line, Sigmon and Kennedy will duke it over ten rounds.
Appearing on the action packed undercard will be multi-time amateur champion “Slick” Nick Kisner (6-0, 4 KO’s), former Towson soccer star Shelly Seivert (4-1-1, 1 KO), light heavyweight Dale “Hit Hard as Hell” Roberson-El (5-0, 3 KO’s) and heavyweight Mark Orendorff (1-0) amongst other local favorites.
In addition to $35 general admission seats, tickets are available for $50, with individual VIP seats on sale for $75 and $100. VIP tables are sold out. All VIP ticket holders will receive free Hor’dourves and half priced drinks.
