GFL PRESENTS “JOE HAND PROMOTIONS: WEBSTER VS SAI” BEGINNING DECEMBER 22
December 19, 2014
GFL, The Comcast Network and Comcast SportsNet continue their weekly combat sports series, REAL FIGHTS, with world class boxing as Joe Hand Promotions presents another show stopper with Webster VS Sai, featuring a full lineup of up and coming boxers from around the East Coast.
Undefeated super middleweight contender Derrick “Take It to the Bank” Webster will headline the third installment of Parx Casino Tuesday Night Fights.
The 6-foot- 4 Glassboro, N.J., resident, who owns an impressive 17-0 record with eight knockouts, will take on Obodai Sai (23-1, 17 KOs) of Ghana. Webster, who will compete in his fourth fight in 2014, is coming off a six-round, unanimous-decision win over Michael Gbenga on May 30. Sai currently resides in Washington, D.C., and is a former Commonwealth British Empire light middleweight champion with a seven-fight win streak.
In the co-main event, Philadelphia super bantamweight Antonio Dubose (6-0, 2 KOs) takes on Arturo Santiago (7-9-1, 4 KOs) of Puerto Rico.
Presented by Joe Hand Promotions and D and D Management Team, Parx Casino Tuesday Night Fights showcases both amateur and professional fighters representing various boxing gyms throughout the Philadelphia area.
The November 25 card will feature five professional fights, including the return of fan favorite Avery Sparrow (2-0, 1 KO), who delivered a devastating knockout in his last performance at 2300 Arena. Sparrow takes on Jesus Lule (6-9, 1 KO) of Fort Myers, Fla., in a four-round featherweight bout.
Also, two four-round welterweight pro bouts will feature Jerome Conquest (1-0) and Blair Cobbs (3-0, 3 KOs), both from Philadelphia. Conquest will face Piotr Apostle (1-0) of Atlantic City, N.J., while Cobbs squares off against Julio Sanchez (1-0) of Houston, Tx.
Seven national champions from across the country, including National Golden Gloves champ Christian Carto of Deptford, NJ, will be featured on the amateur card. Carto, who has his sights set on the 2016 Olympics, faces a very tough 114-pound challenger in Jordan White, an eight-time national champion from Landover, Md.
