Nicholas Guivas sees Witherspoon opportunity a gateway to bigger fights

Atlantic City, NJ (August 13, 2015)–This Saturday night at The Playground inAtlantic City, Heavyweight contender Chazz Witherspoon will look to further his pursuit at a championship opportunity when he takes on Nicholas Guivas in a 10-round bout that will headline a 12-bout card.

The fight card is promoted by Silverspoon Promotions in conjunction with the Atlantic City Boxing Hall of Fame.

Guivas of Topeka, Kansas has other ideas in mind as he has aspirations of his own to compete at the highest level and a victory over the well regarded Witherspoon will help facilitate those major opportunities.

The 36 year-old Guivas is coming to win and has been working hard in his native Topeka.

“I have been training very hard and everything is going pretty good,” said Guivas, who by day is a service technician at Coca-Cola.

“Saturday I will be there to do a job.  I have worked very hard and now it is time to take care at the task at hand.”

Asked what he knows about Witherspoon, Guivas said, “He is a long guy who has a strong jab.  From what I have seen, he moves well.  I will have to get on the inside and stick to the gameplan.”

Guivas has won 4-straight which includes three straight first round knockouts and he is coming off a 6th round stoppage over Justin Willms on June 6.  Because of the streak, Guivas is brimming with confidence.

“I have had hard fights.  The last fight was tougher than it should have been.  I wasn’t ready mentally.  I was ready physically so I was able to push hard and do what I had to do.”

Guivas who started boxing at 7 years-old and is passionate about the sport knows that a win on Saturday night will take him to places and fights that will change his life.

“This is a huge fight for me.  My goal is to handle business and when that happens I will shoot up in the rankings and will be in the mix for big fights.”
