New Orleans-based heavyweight prospect Jonathan Guidry (10-0, 2 KOs) will face Aaron Chavers (8-4-1, 3 KOs), of Oklahoma City, OK, in a six-round clash Saturday, July 14, at Lakefront Arena in New Orleans.
A native of Dulac, Louisiana, the 28-year-old Guidry comes from a family of professional and amateur boxers. Starting as an amateur at the age of 14, the high school football standout compiled a record of 38-8, highlighted by winning the Ringside World Tournament.
Guidry made his professional debut on April 11, 2014, with a first-round knockout of Roosevelt Hudson. Trained and managed by the team of Les Bonano and Jonathan Liberto, Guidry has become one of the most popular fighters in the state of Louisiana and is coming off a second-round knockout of Lemarcus Tucker on June 2, in Metairie, LA.
The upset-minded Chavers looks to bounce back into the win column following a battle with Niall Kennedy on February 24.
