HAMMOND, IN, August 21, 2011 — On the non-televised undercard of the Hitz Boxing in Association with Banner Promotions’ Fight Night at the Horseshoe ESPN Friday Night Fights event on Friday, August 19 at Horseshoe Casino in Hammond, Indiana, former world champion Montell “Ice” Griffin (50-8-1, 30 KOs) of Chicago notched his landmark 50th professional victory with a hard-fought unanimous decision over former world title challenger Deandrey Abron (15-10, 10 KOs) of Youngstown, Ohio. The two light heavyweights traded bombs throughout, but Griffin had the faster, more accurate hands. The scores were 80-72 x 3.

Secret Service agent and undefeated super middleweight Mike “Cujo” Kurzeja (5-0-1, 4 KOs) of Chicago fought his usual back-and-forth war on his way to a highly entertaining unanimous decision (40-36 x 3) over Sydney Ohio’s Jeremy Wood (1-4, 1 KO). Kurzeja’s aggressive style always makes for a good tussle and give respect to Wood, who clearly showed up with winning on his mind. (continue reading…)

Yusaf Mack Faces DeAndrey Abron May 30th

Light Heavyweight contender Yusaf Mack returns to action on May 30th in Tampa Florida.  Mack appears on the undercard of the world title showdown of Andre Berto v Juan Urango.  His opponent is former NABO and world title challenger DeAndrey Abron.

Abron is currently on an unlucky run of form since pushing WBO champion Zsolt Erdei all the way in Germany.  He has travelled over to Europe in order to stay busy and has felt the wrath of some poor refereeing along the way.   He fell short in his challenge to former WBA title holder Valery Brudov when he was stopped after 7 rounds when Abron’s own corner had seen enough, then he was harshly stopped in 2 rounds by undefeated Russian puncher Igor Michalikin.  Abron was knocked down by a solid right hand, but seemed to recover well, Michalikin jumped on him and the referee was all too quick to dive in and stop the action.  Now Abron returns to his own soil to turn around his poor run of form.
