FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Philadelphia, PA (November 29, 2017) – They fought as amateurs, and are both considered among the best super middleweights in the city.
This Friday night, Brandon Robinson and Christopher Brooker meet as professionals in what could shape up to be an explosive co-feature bout of a 12 fight card at the

2300 Arena in Philadelphia.
The eight-round bout is for the UBF All-Americas title.
The loaded show is promoted my King’s Promotions.
The main event will pit Tyrone Brunson (25-6-2, 23 KOs) against Manny Woods (16-6-1, 6 KOs) of Saint Petersburg, Florida in a junior middleweight bout scheduled for ten rounds.
“Training has been great.  This has been the best camp that I have had since turning professional hands down,” said Robinson. 
Although this could be a breakthrough fight for 29 year-old Robinson, He has been looking at Brooker no different than any previous foe.
“I look at every fight as a big fight.  I see each fight as if I am fighting Canelo or Golovkin, so I get my self in the best shape I can be.”
Being that they are in the same city, there is the aforementioned history between the two fighters.
“We fought as amateurs, and I won that fight.  Since the, we have sparred a couple times, and that has given me a great scouting report on him, and let’s just say I feel very comfortable going into this fight.”
Fighting against another Philly fighter is nothing new for Robinson as he already has a victory over Lamont McLaughlin.
“I have been through this, and these kind of fights bring out the best of me, and with a winon Friday, this will open up many doors for me that I never expected to be opened.  I am looking for a complete performance,  The fans will see power in both hands, craftiness, ring generalship and a huge heart.  I just want to thank King’s Promotions, and I am looking to take home the UBF All-Americas Super Middleweight title.”
For the 26 year-old Brooker, he has been here before but he wants to get back in the win column after losing to undefeated Light Heavyweight Ahmed Elbiali in a fight that he took on short notice on July 18th.
“I got right back in the gym after that fight.  I been working for 12 weeks.  I have a new personal trainer Jermaine Clark and my new trainer Octavio Pineda,” said Brooker.
Brooker does not believe that the amateur loss to Robinson means anything going into Friday night.
“Yea, it does not mean anything.  It was my 3rd amateur fight.  The sparring sessions were good.  I treated them like I wanted to get some revenge for losing to him, and I am very confident after those sessions.  This fight for me is about getting this belt .  People will see me outwork him and outclass him.”
Brooker has made his name throughout the boxing circles with his willing to fight and defeat anybody at anytime.  That is evidenced by his wins over Leo Hall, John Magda, Antowyan Aikens and Gabriel Pham.  Brooker also stepped up to face Elbiali, Ronald Gavril and Ronald Ellis, and he became a favorite on national television because of his tough as nails style.
“Robinson is just another guy in front of me.  I been in and defeated much more experienced fighters then him.  He has not have anything that I have not seen in the ring.  I am not looking past him, I am looking through him.  I was beating Gavril before the fight was unjustly stopped.  He went on to barely lose in a bid for a world title and now he is getting a rematch with him, so that just shows what level I am on.  I want that rematch or (WBC Champion) David Benevidez.”
“I appreciate King’s Boxing and I am honored to fight for another belt.  I appreciate Brandon for signing the contract.  Friday night is a big fight for me, my family and all of my supporters.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Fort Washington, MD (February 9, 2017)– Despite having a perfect record, cruiserweight Darnell Pierce doesn’t mind fighting in hostile territory.  In fact a boxing ring is almost walk in the park compared to some of the tasks that this United States Army veteran has endured.
Pierce takes on Luther Smith in the 6-round co-feature bout this Saturday night at the Rosecroft Raceway in Fort Washington, Maryland.
In the main event, undefeated junior welterweight Mykal Fox takes on Tre’Sean Wiggins in a bout scheduled for 8-rounds.

The show is promoted by King;s Promotions.

Pierce of Austin, Texas has a record of 5-0 with 1 knockout, and has been working hard in Houston with some big name fighters to get ready for this important fight.
Pierce had a brief amateur career going 9-2, but that due to Army duties, that was spread out over 5 years.
“The military opened up a lot of doors for me.” 
“I have been working hard.  I was in camp with (WBO Cruiserweight champion) Oleksandr Usyk and this cam has been spent with Travis Kauffman and Steve Cunningham,” said Pierce.
In Smith, Pierce has not done much studying, but he is ready for anything on Saturday night.
“I really don’t know much about him.  We fought on the same card, but I really did not pay much attention to his fight.”
Despite having the undefeated record, Pierce will be fighting in the hometown of Smith, but that doesn’t faze the 30 year-old Army vet.
“I have had 5 fights, and I have been the opponent in all of them.  I know he will have the fans there, but that doesn’t bother.  I am not fighting his fans.”
“I am not too concerned by not having the fan support.  When I started fighting, I did that on my own, and this is no different.  I spent a little time in Maryland, but I am from Texas.  Because my promoter (King’s Promotions) is located on the East Coast, I will be fighting on the East Coast a lot, so until I can build up a fan base, this is how it will be.”
“I go about my business.  I just enjoy the sport and competing.”
Because of his mindset, Pierce just goes about his training,  and with success the supporters will be behind him.
“I just plan on winning and the rest will take care of itself.”
In 6-round bouts:
Marcus Bates (5-0-1, 4 KO’s) of Washington, DC will take on
Alec McGee (2-0) of Reno, Nevada in a super bantamweight bout.
