“Big-Time Professional Boxing at Wild Bill’s Concert Hall”
A Night of Champions Power, Pride and Honor
Wild Bill's Concert Hall - We have great news for fight fans in the Atlanta metropolitan area. On Tuesday April 18, for the first time ever, a fistic 8 fight professional boxing card comes to Wild Bill's Concert Hall located in Duluth, GA.
Promoter Dana Pitcher of Dana Pitcher Productions, along with legendary matchmaker Peyton Sher have put together an exciting card totaling 50 plus rounds of professional boxing, featuring world class boxers and local young talent in competitive bouts.
The main event is headlined by former IBF World Bantamweight Champion “The Cincinnati Kid” Tim Austin, perhaps the most feared contender in boxing against Colombia’s, Luis “El Monstruito” Bolano 41-5 (31KOs). Austin, 27-1 with 24 knockouts, who is currently ranked #8 in the March WBC ratings, will box against Bolano in a 10-round contest.
In the co-feature, Atlanta's most popular featherweight Jorge "Baby Face" Lacierva 27-6 (18 KOs) steps it up in a 10-round bout against Colombia’s knockout artist Reynaldo “El Doberman” Hurtado 37-8 (28KOs). He is a world-class fighter who has fought on Telemundo, Telefutura, ESPN, and Fox Networks. Lacierva has won several titles including the WBC Latino Title, IBA World Championship, NABO Championship, and he has challenged for the IBF World Championship.
Lacierva is especially looking forward to his fight on April 18; this is because he will be fighting in Atlanta.
“I’m really excited about fighting at Wild Bill's Concert Hall,” said the 27-year-old Santa Anita, Mexico native. “Everyone has been extremely supportive and it’s an honor for me to be fighting here in front of all my friends and family, he said.”
Also featured in a lightweight 10-round special attraction Accra, Ghana’s Alex “Ali” Baba 21-9 (16KOs) steps it up in a 10-round bout against Ocotlan, Mexico's Jose German Cruz 16-2 (14 KOs). Baba now makes his home in Doraville, GA and he is ready to give local fight fans what they have been waiting for. Previously, you have seen him on Fox Sports, ESPN, Comcast Sports, HBO, Showtime, and MSG and now you can see him live.
A full under card features great match ups including welterweight Ed Paredes 6-1 (3Kos) from Puerto Rico against unbeaten pugilist from Mexico City, Mexico Aaron Martinez 3-0 (1KO), in what should be a very competitive 6-round fight.
