Rematch of Wild Heavyweight Brawl LIVE on

NEW YORK, March 12, 2010 — Tonight on, Mark “Oak Tree” Brown will look to emulate his biggest win to date as he takes on Tony Grano in a rematch of one of the best and most exciting heavyweight bouts in years.

It was on September 27thm, 2008 when Grano dropped Brown two times only to see the personable “Oak Tree” come back and stop Grano in the final round of their scheduled eight round bout.

The seven bout card can be seen at 8pm eastern time for just $9.99 by clicking:

Now Tonight at Foxwoods Hotel and Casino in Connecticut, the question that will be asked is will we see repeat or revenge?

Brown of Salam, New Jersey has a record of 15-2 with seven knockouts and is just 1-1 since the fight with Grano.  He is coming off a third round stoppage loss to former world title challenger, Fres Oquendo back on June 26th in Chicago.

Grano of nearby Hebron, Connecticut has just that one blemish against sixteen wins and one draw with thirteen wins coming by knockout.

The loss to Brown may in a ways could have kickstarted his career as Grano is 2-0 since that fight with Brown with his previous bout being an improbable comeback stoppage victory over undefeated prospect Travis Kauffman on September 18th.

The card that is promoted by Jimmy Burchfield’s Classic Entertainment Sports (CES) has a solid undercard featuring a former bantamweight contender Mike Oliver (22-2, 7 KO’s) battling former two-time world champion Kermin Guardia (37-11, 21 KO’s)

Former 2008 U.S. Olympian, Sadam Ali (5-0, 2 KO’s) takes on Jose Duran (6-4-2, 3 KO’s) in a four round Welterweight affair.

In a four round Light Heavyweight bout, Joe Smith (2-0, 2 KO;s) battles Carlos Adams (2-7).

Manuel Antonio Lopes (5-0-1, 1 KO) will fight Greg McCoy (0-1) in a four round Super Middleweight bout.

In a four round Middleweight bout, David Bauza (3-0, 3 KO’s) looks to stay perfect when he tussles with Eric Quinteros (2-4).

In a four round Super Featherweight affair, Edwin Soto (2-0, 1 KO) will take on Joey Ortega (3-16, 1 KO)
