Adrien Broner and R&R Promotions giving complimentary tickets to all military

FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. (July 4, 2013) – In honor of Independence Day, three-time world champion boxer Adrien Broner and R&R Promotions are giving one complimentary ticket to Friday’s “Independence Explosion” fight card to each military member who presents a military I.D. Broner, one of the sport’s youngest superstars, will be appearing at the event as a special guest.

The 10-bout card which is taking place at the Crown Center (1960 Coliseum Dr., Fayetteville, NC 28306) at 7 p.m. is not only featuring some of the top young talent in the sport, but four former U.S. Olympians and two fighters who were members of our nation’s armed forces – U.S. Marines Jamel Herring and Jonathon Steele.

Our nation’s holiday is not the only inspiration for the giveaway. Since his first USO tour of Kuwait and Iraq in 2011, Broner has held a special admiration for the work our troops do in protecting our country. In part of an attempt to honor them, Broner and Andrew Williams, CEO of R&R Promotions, decided to offer this special giveaway for any member, current or past, of the U.S. military.

As home to Ft. Bragg, the city of Fayetteville is the perfect place for Broner to continue paying homage to the military.

The fight card named “Independence Explosion” features three-time Olympian Rau’shee Warren (5-0, 3 KOs, 13-0 including World Series of Boxing fights) in the main event, 2012 Olympians Dominic Breazeale (5-0, 5 KOs), Jamel Herring (4-0, 2 KOs), 2008 Olympian Raynell Williams (debut), Brandon Bennett (15-0, 7 KOs), and North Carolina’s own Lamar Russ (13-0, 7 KOs).

Complimentary tickets can be retrieved at the Crown Center box office. A valid military I.D. must presented at the time of redemption.
