Mike “Hollywood” Jimenez, ranked #21 in the USA boxing rankings, will meet Aaron Pryor Jr. for the second time June 23 at The Dome at the Ballpark in Rosemont, Illinois.

 

Jimenez (21-1, 14 KOs), and Pryor (19-10-2, 10 KOs), battled to an exciting majority draw at the Horseshoe Arena in Hammond, Indiana last year. Jimenez stopped Miguel Cubos five months later. His rematch with Pryor will be his fight of the year.

 

The card also features undefeated Chicago light heavyweight Mike Lee, and the return of the always-exciting Don “The Bomb” George. Lee defeated Justin Thomas at The Hanger in Costa Mesa, CA, and is the current USBA light heavyweight champion. George, who gave WBC light heavyweight champion Adonis Stevenson everything he could ask for in 2012, will be hoping to snap a three-fight losing streak.

 

The bouts will be televised nationally on CBS Sports, and are being promoted by Hitz Boxing, in association with Round 3 Productions.


“Rosemont has always been a special place for Hitz Boxing,” said Hall of Fame Promoter Hitz.  “I had my first card there, and had a great run with the Ramada Rumble.  We’re coming home, bringing the first fights ever to The Dome, and putting together fights with some really special local guys. It’s going to be a big night for Chicago area boxing.”

 

 

Tickets are priced at $200, $150, $100 and $40, and go on sale this Wednesday, May 9 at www.hitzboxing.com,  Doors to The Dome at the  ballpark open at 6:00 p.m., and first bell is at 7:00 p.m.  The CBS Sports broadcast begins at 8:00 p.m. local time/9:00 p.m. EST.
