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.
In 4-round bouts:
Tyrek Irby (1-0, 1 KO) of Washington, D.C. battles Lamont White (0-5) of Washington, DC in a junior welterweight bout.

Fox is wrapping up training camp in the D.C. area, and he believes that Wiggins could be the toughest test of his young professional career.
“Training camp has been great.  It has been another good camp,” said Fox.

Fox has been progressing up the ladder, and now he is considered to be on some prospects lists on the East Coast.  A win over the heavy handed Wiggins would solidify his status as 2017 progresses.
“I think fighting him is the next step in my progression.  I wanted to be tested, and Wiggins is a guy who has power.  I am not looking to take those punches, bit if I do, I will be ready for what he has.”

“We are both very motivated.  We are there for each other.  We feed off each other in the gym and it is a great motivator to train next to him every day.”
A win over Wiggins will keep Fox moving towards his short term goal for 2017.
“I am looking to get in a few more eight-round bouts, and then be able to get some some television bouts.  As long as I continue to stay busy, I see that happening.”

After finishing 3rd year of medical school, It’s back to boxing for undefeated super middleweight Devar Ferhadi

Crystal City, Virginia (August 18, 2016)–One of the best stories in boxing will have another chapter written this Friday night as Devar Ferhadi takes on  Christopher Petty in a four-round bout at the Crystal City Hilton in Crystal City, Virginia.
In the main event, Undefeated Mykal Fox will make his 2nd headlining appearance this Friday night when he takes on  Somner Martin in a junior welterweight bout scheduled for eight rounds
Ferhadi, of Frederick, Maryland has a perfect mark of 6-0 with five knockouts, just completed his third year of medical school in his native Kurdistan.
Because he finished up school at the end of June, the 21 year-old started his training camp in Kurdistan, before heading back to the states to spar with the likes of undefeated middleweight Immanuwel Aleem, undefeated junior middleweight Jarrett Hurd and recent light heavyweight world title challenger Thomas Williams.
“This has been a long camp, but I am ready to fight,”  said Ferhadi.  “I started over there and I came back home to finish camp off.”
Ferhadi, who will pursue General or internal medicine when his fight days are complete, is ready for what the unknown Petty will bring.
” He is a last-minute replacement and a southpaw, But I have prepared hard and I prepared to win.”
There were several opponents that were offered the fight with Ferhadi and due to his amateur pedigree combined with the world class sparring that Ferhadi consistently gets when he is home in Maryland, he is looking to step up the competition.
“We are always looking to fight better opponents and we have no problem stepping up.”
This will be Devar’s first fight since February, where he was home from school long enough to stop Travis Davidson in one round in Roanoke, Virginia.  But between training and a heavy school load, Ferhadi is grateful for the time off from the ring.
“The time off actually helps me.  It’s tough jumping from one camp right into another one, but I am ready to go and expect me to put on a show.”
Said Ferhadi’s manager, Jason Boyer, “Devar has three more years of medical school and when he is completed that, he will be come a full-time boxer.  At that point, he will just be about 24 years-old, so I know the best boxing years have yet to come.”
In a six-round heavyweight co-feature of undefeated heavyweights, Luther Smith(5-0, 4 KO’s) of Bowie, Maryland will take on Mike Balogun (6-0, 5 KO’s) of Upper Marlboro, Maryland.
