I have a fine tuned ear to what fans are looking for, and in this day and age with the economy the way it is, I have a duty to put on an amazing competitive fight card if I am asking fans to spend their hard earned money on my event. Having James “Buster” Douglas ringside is the icing on the cake.. he is an incredible figure in boxing, he upset the invincible “Iron” Mike Tyson and yet after 20 years he still remains the same; humble.”-Bobby Hitz.
