Live boxing will be coming to Saint Petersburg this coming Friday, June 18, inside of the Saint Petersburg Clearwater Marriott.
The event will be in conjunction with this weekend’s Florida Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony, and presented by T & K Boxing Promotions.
Some notable names that will be appearing on the show:
Antonio Tarver Jr., son of the former champion Antonio, will put his 6-0 (4 KO’s) record on the line against Thomas Turner (5-10, 4 KO’s). The bout marks the first fight for Tarver in over two years.
Tampa’s Ivan Franco (8-0, 6 KO’s) will look to continue his unbeaten steak against Ubaldo Lara (1-3-1). An August 28th return date appears to also be lined up for Franco if he is successful.
Ocala’s Jose Ocasio (7-1, 6 KO’s) faces veteran Ernie Marquez (10-16-2, 3 KO’s) in a super flyweight attraction. Marquez is very tough and has gone some rounds with some good fighters, so he should provide an interesting step-up for Ocasio.
Notable guests will 2021 inductees Antonio Tarver and Glen Johnson, who were great rivals in the ring, as well as former champion Nate Campbell.
We will be at the fights this weekend. Stay tuned for post-fight coverage.
