ESPN Friday Night Fights/PUBLIC Weigh-IN This Thursday
Sherman Oaks, California (January 20, 2014) ESPN Friday Night Fights will hit the Pacific Northwest this week as Goossen Tutor Promotions brings a full card of world-class professional boxing to the Little Creek Casino Resort in Shelton, Washington.
Boxing fans from the Seattle-Tacoma area are welcome to join the local media as all fighters on the card will take part in the Official Public Weigh-In this Thursday, JANUARY 23 at 2:00 p.m. PT in the Squi Atl Room on the first floor of the Little Creek Casino Resort.
The Little Creek Casino Resort is located at 91 West State Route 108 in Shelton, Washington.
The “Little Creek Brawl IV” main event, broadcast on ESPN Friday Night Fights and presented by Corona Extra™ will feature an NABO Light Heavyweight Title clash between top undefeated prospect Thomas Williams Jr. (15-0, 10 KOs) of Fort Washington, Maryland and Houston based contender Cornelius White (21-2, 16 KOs), with former World Champion Rico Ramos (22-3, 12 KOs) taking on upset-minded Jonathan Arellano (14-2-2, 3 KOs) in a 10-round semi-main Featherweight Bout.
“From top to bottom we’ve put together an excellent fight card for the terrific boxing fans in the Seattle-Tacoma area and ESPN,” said Dan Goossen, Founder and President of Goossen Tutor Promotions. “The main event should be a sensational ten round crossroads matchup between Williams and White in the very hot light heavyweight division with the winner taking a much closer step toward a world title shot.”
“And our co-main event will be an exciting action packed featherweight battle with the former champ Ramos trying to keep his title hopes alive in a very tough battle with Southern California native Arellano, who won the fight of the night on an HBO undercard two months ago.”
“We’re also proud to welcome three of the Pacific Northwest’s finest fighters on the undercard, Seattle’s Eddie Hunter, who is facing Ronald Hearns the son of a true boxing legend, Thomas Hearns, Vancouver’s Virgil Green and Renton, Washington’s undefeated prospect Marcello Gallardo taking on fellow undefeated Juan Funez from Van Nuys, CA as part of our event.”
