Las Vegas, NV, August 01, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- TV4U will be heading to Atlanta this week for the August 4 “War in Cobb County” boxing event. There Maricela Cornejo will be battling Mia Henderson in the Boxing Illustrated Novice Middleweight Championship. Maricela Cornejo hopes to keep her streak going of never seeing an opponent survive the first round, now at the professional level. The boxing card will be held at the Cobb Galleria Center in Atlanta. The Yakima Washington area wunderkind, now fighting out of her MCB Home of the Elite gym in Las Vegas, is making her pro debut.
Also on the card, former Contender series star Grady Brewer will battle Giorbis Barthelemy for the IBO Inter-Continental jr. middleweight title. The winner of this match-up will also earn a shot at the IBO world championship. Brewer stopped fast-rising star Fernando Guerrero with a 4th round KO last June as the main event of ESPN’s Friday Night Fights to get him back into the title picture, while Barthelemy stopped hot prospect Derek Ennis in two rounds last March to put him in the spot to face Brewer for the IBO’s vacant Intercontinental belt.
The semi windup features Anthony Hanshaw vs. Shannon Miller.
“War in Cobb County” is being co-promoted by Golden Girl Promotions and Beddingfield Management Entertainment. For ticket information call 678-360-2484.
The Maricela Cornejo Mia Henderson championship belt will be seen on TVS Boxing.Net on the TV4U 48 channel IPTV network.
