HAMMOND, IN, February, 9, 2012 — The undercard of Hitz Boxing’s “Fight Night at the Horseshoe” series, scheduled for Saturday, February 18, 2012, at the Horseshoe Casino in Hammond, Indiana, has been announced and a strong group of local fighters are scheduled for intriguing battles.

In support of headlining undefeated welterweight prospect Alanbek Kozaev (19-0, 6 KOs) of Vladikavkaz, Russia and newly signed Cleveland-based junior welterweight prospect Prenice “Greatness” Brewer (16-1-1, 6 Kos) will be: unbeaten heavyweight slugger Dave “Diesel” Latoria (9-0, 5 KOs), who will face Oak Lawn, Illinois native Ed “The Iron Man” Gutierrez (15-10-1, 6 KOs) in a heavyweight six; popular local super middleweight Mike “Hollywood” Jimenez (5-0, 3 KOs) taking on Bruce “The Rage” Rumbolz (22-23-2, 15 KOs) of Sterling, Illinois; talented Lafayette, Louisiana, lightweight Chris Singleton (3-0, 2 KOs) versus pro debuting Nebraska resident Eddie Corrona; nearby Chesterton, Indiana, heavyweight Philip Triantafillo (1-0, 1 KO) doing battle with fellow Indiana resident Calbert Lewis making his pro debut; Chicago junior welterweight Genaro Mendez (3-1-1, 2 KOs) vs. Beloit, Wisconsin’s Josh Rodriguez (2-6, 1 KO); and the debut of Omaha, Nebraska-based former amateur heavyweight star (and newest member of the Hitz Boxing stable) Brian Houston in a surprisingly stern first test for his first time out against Chicago’s Felix Abner (3-2, 2 KOs).

And in a late addition to the card, “Italian Stallion” Russell Fiore (5-1-1, 5 Kos) will take on an equally determined foe in pro debuting Elvis Gori of Windsor, Ontario.

Kozaev and Brewer’s opponents will be announced shortly.

The high-class atmosphere and luxurious surroundings the Horseshoe has to offer make their boxing shows a Las Vegas-style night of boxing that Chicago-area fans don’t have to get on a plane to enjoy.

The Horseshoe Casino has an intimate, comfortable venue with luxurious seats, a spectacular gaming area, free parking, exquisite food and all the amenities — and is just 20 minutes from Downtown Chicago.
