The next installment of Hitz Boxing’s “Fight Night at the Horseshoe” series will be held on February 18 at the Horseshoe Casino in Hammond, Indiana, featuring heavyweight contender “Merciless” Mike Mollo (20-3-1, 12 KOs) of Oak Lawn, Illinois; NABA-US Champion Yakubu “Black Mamba” Amidu (20-2-1, 18 KOs) of Los Angeles via Ghana; Vladikavkaz, Russia’s undefeated welterweight prospect Alanbek Kozaev (19-0, 6 KOs); the unveiling of newly signed Cleveland-based junior welterweight prospect Prenice “Greatness” Brewer (16-1-1, 6 KOs); along with a host of local favorites. The opponents are yet to be determined.
“I’ve been doing shows here for quite some time,” said promoter Bobby Hitz, “and I am honored to continue providing the boxing to this beautiful casino. To maintain quality standards at our shows, what we’re going to do from now on is feature only fighters who want to fight. We’re not going to focus on getting wins for local kids like some other promotions do. In fact, I don’t care if you’re from the same gym as another guy. If you fight at the Horseshoe, you have to be willing to be in tough, maybe even against another local kid. Let’s call it a tournament of sorts to see who the best fighters in the area really are by fighting one another.”
