CHESTER, PA (December 4, 2014)- This Friday night at Harrahs Philadelphia, undefeated Omar Douglas will take on the battle tested Osnel Charles and one of the featured undercard of a six bout card.
The show is promoted by King’s Promotions and XFE.
In the main event, Jarrett Hurd (13-0, 8 KO’s) of Accokeek, MD will fight Emmanuel Sanchez (5-1, 1 KO) of Laredo, TX in a eight round Middleweight bout.
Douglas of Wilmington, Delaware has a record of 12-0 with 9 knockouts is primed and ready for the bout as he got solid preparation for the fight.
“Training went well. I have been getting decent sparring with Raymond Serrano and Jason Sosa and I am ready for Friday night,” said Douglas.
In Charles, he is fighting a guy who is better then his 10-11-1 record would indicate as he has wins over Zachary Smith (4-1), Danny McDermott (8-2-1) & two wins over Philly fan favorite Victor Vasquez.
“We fought in the amateurs. I won a decision” said Douglas. “I have known him for a long time. He has been around. I just want to get through this with an impressive victory. I just want to move on. I am focused as I fight every fight like it’s a world title bout.”
Douglas believes that 2015 is a potentially big year for himself as he gets into contention for big fights.
“I hope to be 16 or 17-0 by this time next year. The more I fight and busier I am will make me better. I just signed with Al Haymon and I know he will keep me busy. I want to impress with a knockout. If I continue to do that, I will be known as one of those top prospects.”
“I will show everybody that I have a lot of speed, smarts and ring savvy. I dedicate everything I do to boxing.”
