Undefeated Heavyweight “Brutal” Brendan Barrett back in the boxing ring this Saturday night at The Claridge in Atlantic City 

Anthony “Juice” Young battles Samuel Amoako in main event

Plus undefeated  Yurik Mamedov

Also seeing action: Dan Pasciolla and Gabriel Pham
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Atlantic City, NJ (March 8, 2017)–Undefeated heavyweight Brendan Barrett returns to the boxing this Saturday night at the Claridge Hotel in Atlantic City.
 
Barrett will take on Philly tough guy Brian Donahue in a bout scheduled for 4-rounds.
The Show is promoted by Rising Promotions.
Barrett of Little Egg Harbor, New Jersey has a pro boxing record of 4-0-2 with 4 knockouts, and will be making his return to the ring after being out of the squared circle for 11 months.  In his last boxing match, he stopped Alando Pugh in 2 rounds in Atlantic City.
Barrett, who is an MMA veteran of 19 fights last fought in the cage on September 23rd.
“Everything is going well,”said Barrett.  “My focus has been on boxing, and since my last boxing match, I have been focusing more on strength and conditioning plus my diet.  Fans will see a bigger version of me.  You can really see the transformation as I been concentrating a lot on what I eat and meal prepping on my Facebook and Instagram accounts.”
In Donahue, he is facing a guy whose record reads just 3-13-3, but Donahue is known for his hard nosed style and is always a tough-out.
“Donahue is a tough guy.  A brawler, and is a hard guy to stop”
The 11 month layoff was not something that Barrett wanted.  He was scheduled to fight during the summer, but opponents have been hard to come by.
“I am always looking at opportunities to fight.  I had 7 or 8 opponents fall through on me, so I took the MMA fight in September.”
Going back and forth between boxing isn’t a problem for Barrett as he has a gameplan on how he bides his time between the 2 sports.
“It all depends on the opportunity.  I make more money in MMA, but I am very interested in boxing.  After this fight there could be some boxing opportunities in China, so I am still gathering all the information on that.”
This will be Barrett’s 3rd consecutive fight on the boardwalk, and that is conducive for his fans in Little Egg Harbor, which is just up the coast on the Jersey Shore.
