PEORIA, IL, August 22, 2011 — Tickets are now on sale for RUMBLE IN PAR-A-DICE, an action packed evening of professional boxing set for Saturday, September 10th at the Par-A-Dice Hotel and Casino in East Peoria, Illinois. Presented in association with Dominic Pesoli’s 8 Count Productions, HOME OF THE BEST IN CHICAGO BOXING, advance tickets priced at $40 and $20 may be purchased at the Hotel Front Desk or by calling 309-698-6083.

Headlining RUMBLE IN PAR-A-DICE will be a sensational middleweight clash featuring Lithuanian prospect Donatas Bondoravas and Mexican- American Adam Leal of Nogales, Arizona.

A fan favorite since moving to Chicago two years ago, the aggressive, all -action Bondoravas, 13-3-1 (3KO’s) is coming off his finest win of his of his career, a sensational six round decision over long time Detroit based contender Marlon Thomas on July 15th in Chicago.

The heavy-handed Leal, sporting a record of 8-3-0 (7KO’s), is coming off an eight round stoppage of Rosario Escalante on March 26th in Sonora, Mexico.

In the co-main event, ladies in the featherweight division will face off in an eight rounder as Chicago’s Evette Collazo challenges Jackie Trivilino of Plattsburgh, New York.

The 23-year-old Collazo, 4-2-0 (2KO’s), will have her huge crowd of Windy City supporters on hand as she looks to add to her win total.

Fighting out of Plattsburgh, New York, Trivilino 6-3-2 (1KO) returns to action following a hard fought majority decision loss to Nydia Feliciano on April 15th for the New York State Featherweight Title.

Middleweights will see action in a special feature attraction as knockout artist Josh Crouch of Schererville, Indiana challenges St. Louis’ Lamar “The Prince of Pain” Harris.

Crouch has scored all eight of his wins by knockout, stopping Eddie Gates in the fifth round on July 30th in Gary, Indiana.

Harris is best known for engaging in two outstanding wars last year with cross-town rival Ryan Davis, the first a six round draw in January followed by a very close, eight round decision loss in June.

In a six round featherweight cross-state showdown, Minnesota based veteran road warriors Antwan Robertson and Hassan Wasswa will look to settle their score for the last two years.

Rounding out the card is the highly anticipated pro debut of 24-year-old light heavyweight Junior Wright. A three-time Chicago Golden Gloves Champion and a highly decorated national amateur fighting out of Evanston, Illinois, Wright will compete in a scheduled four rounder against an opponent to be announced.
