The fists will be “A Flyin” on this upcoming Thursday, April 29th, at the posh Houston Club located on 811 Rusk St. as former IBA Heavyweight Champion Lou Savarese features an April show in Houston  lighting up the Spring Bayou City skyline with explosive action featuring power punching Light Welterweight Tiffany Junot going for the Texas State Jr. Welterweight title vs former victim, Kita Watkins (5-5) who recently pounded the formidable Rita Figueroa into retirement.  The battle looks to be a pitched one much like the first with Junot’s superior boxing skill and athleticism being the difference.  Junot, (7-2-1, 5 KO’s) is not taking Watkins lightly this time around, and has trained harder, sparred more rounds, and run further for any other fight in her illustrious career thus far.

Also on the card: Undefeated heavyweight Justin Jones (7-0-1, 4 KO’s) and towering Skip Scott (6-1), all 6 feet 8 inches of him, back the line in this powerful card which promises to be action packed and full of bloodletting violence for all of the lucky Houston fight fans that will be in attendance.  Also slated to appear is top ranked Light Heavyweight Chris “Hard Hittin’” Henry’s chief sparring partner, Willie “Dynamite” Edwards (7-1, 2 KO’s) and undefeated Welterweight winger, Gerardo “Tin Tin” Ibarra (7-0, 6 KO’s) who is a dynamic hitter and one prospect to keep an eye out for. Jose Cruz and Mark Blankenship round out the big time fight promotion that will for sure “rock the house” from its very foundations from the 10th floor at the Houston Club that will be filled with volcanic boxing action for the crowd as the days grow warmer for the victors here and the nights grow shorter for the losers.

Savarese Promotions’ ‘Fury on the Mainland’ Electrifies Galveston County

By Karl Hegman

Big time boxing returned to Galveston County for the first time in 17 years in the main ballroom at the Doyle Convention Center in Texas City on March 18th as Eugene “Mean Gene” Hill retained his Texas Heavyweight Championship with an 8 round unanimous verdict over clever veteran Andrew Greeley in the evening’s Main Event. The big punching Hill (20-1, 15 KO’s) pressed the action the entire way, looking for the big bomb to end it all, but Greeley (14-32, 8 KO’s) was in there to survive and in defensive mode the whole way, and took very few chances in trading with the Dickinson native, and Hill won every round on the official scorecards.  The trimmed down Hill did score with some mean body shots to the veteran’s side and midsection, but Andrew, who had a moment or two, hung tough in there against a much younger and stronger opponent and lasted to hear the final bell.

The charismatic youngster from Dickinson moves on to his next fight, scheduled in April in Houston against an opponent yet to be determined.  “This wasn’t my toughest fight, but the guy could take a punch.  Those body shots I hit him with would have gotten a lot of guys out of there, and I am really pleased that Big Lou gave me an opportunity to fight in front of my fans in my backyard, and I am looking for bigger and better things down the road in the future.  Thank you all!” concluded the up and coming slugger, and we at the CBZ look forward to covering his skyrocketing career as he continues to ascend the very tough, yet very rewarding, fistic ladder.
