Public Weigh In Today - "Fight Night at the Horseshoe"


The Media and General Public are invited to today’s official weigh-in for Hitz Boxing’s "Fight Night at the Horseshoe" event.


Today’s official weigh-in will be held at 5 pm on the casino floor in The Sixth Street Sports Bar, inside the Hammond Horseshoe Casino (777 Casino Center Drive, Hammond, IN). All fighters involved, all promoters and organizers will be available for interviews and photos.

  Tomorrow night, Friday, February 15, "Fight Night at the Horseshoe" will be held at The Venue inside the Hammond Horseshoe Casino.  

The main event will feature the rematch of an explosive war held last November at the very same venue, as Chicago (via Lithuania) middleweight Donatas Bondorovas (16-3-1, 5 KOs) will once again face Evansville, Indiana’s "King" David Thomas (10-3-2, 8 KOs) in an eight-round battle.  

In their first encounter, Bondorovas had to get off the floor and survive several shaky moments before storming back to win via a come-from-behind (and some would say early) stoppage in round two. Plenty of doubt remains and both fighters are eager to do it again and prove their superiority once and for all.  

Several Chicagoland favorites are scheduled to appear in supporting bouts including Chicago’s red-hot undefeated Dimar "Strongman" Ortuz (7-0, 5 KOs), who will go six rounds in the cruiserweight division against Memphis southpaw Grover Young (7-8-1, 4 KOs).  

Also returning for a six-rounder is wildly popular Chicago super middleweight prospect Mike "Hollywood" Jimenez (8-0, 5 KOs), who is fresh off his very impressive stoppage of former world title challenger Antwun Echols last November at the Horseshoe. Jimenez will fight local veteran Michael Walker (19-17-3, 12 KOs).  

In other matches, Hammond, Indiana’s own heavyweight powerhouse David Martin III (6-0-1, 5 KOs) is coming back for a six-rounder against Chicago tough guy Felix Abner (3-2, 2 KOs); and 21-year-old Rockford, Illinois, lightweight Anthony Linenfelser (3-3, 3 KOs) will bring his brand of excitement to bear against explosive Chicago native Russell "Rocky" Fiore (6-2-1, 6 KOs) in a four-rounder.  

Popular locals also featured in four-round fights will be junior welterweight Genaro Mendez (5-1-1, 3 KOs); pro super flyweight and former National Jr. Olympic Champion Johnny "WiteBoi" Determan (5-0, 4 KOs) from Nebraska, as well as the other heavily decorated Chicago-based amateur he is on a collision course with: 21-year-old super flyweight prospect Adan Ortiz (5-0, 4 KOs); welterweight "Irish" Jimmy Murphy (1-0, 1 KO) and the second fight of welterweight Nick Ramirez (0-0-1).

The high-class atmosphere and luxurious surroundings the Horseshoe has to offer make their boxing shows a Las Vegas-style night of boxing that Chicago-area fans don’t have to get on a plane to enjoy.  

The Horseshoe Casino has an intimate, comfortable venue with luxurious seats, a spectacular gaming area, free parking, exquisite food and all the amenities -- and is just 20 minutes from Downtown Chicago.  

Tickets are priced at $90 Ringside & $40 Orchestra and available at all Ticketmaster outlets and ticketmaster.com.

On fight night, doors open 6:30 pm and the action starts at 7:30.

 

All bouts are subject to change.
