It takes a bomber to know one.  Former heavyweight champion Mike Tyson said of his main event fighter, ”The first time I watched Sammy Vasquez Jr. fight I knew he had something special. He fights with urgency and focus unmatched by most. When that bell rings, whether the other guy knows it or not, he’s in a war and he’d better be ready because Sammy wants to end it quick.”

And his upcoming opponent this Friday night isn’t bad, either.  “James Stevenson is 21-0 and wants to get to 22-0. Should be a great fight. I can’t wait. If you’re a boxing fan, you need to check this fight out. It’s the kind of fight you can expect from IMP. It’s a great challenge for Sammy who fights non-stop, punches in bunches from all angles. He’s a warrior but has boxing skills too. I love watching him fight. Trust me, I know what I’m talking about, tune in and check Sammy out against his biggest challenge yet, you won’t be disappointed.” (continue reading…)

BALTIMORE, MD, July 22, 2009 — This Saturday, Baltimore, MD’s James “Keep em Sleepin” Stevenson will step into the ring with an ever so confident Ken Dunham. Dunham, who came away short handed in their first fight, will enter the squared circle with momentum on his side as his last two victories came via knockout of a previously unbeaten hometown fighter. Stevenson, 9-0 (8 KO’s), understands that if he doesn’t take Dunham seriously, he could very well take his first loss as a pro.


“I don’t take anyone lightly,” said Stevenson, who will battle Dunham for the NABC and WBF Americas Welterweight titles. “I am training extra hard because anything can happen in the ring so I will be fully prepared come Saturday.” The Stevenson-Dunham match up is slated for the eight round main event.
