R&R Promotions presents Championship Fight Night Nov. 30

R&R Promotions is proud to present three WBC title fights featuring popular Cincinnati boxers Brandon “Untouchable” Bennett, Aaron Pryor Jr., and William Jackson Nov. 30 at the Duke Energy Center in Cincinnati. The “Championship Fight Night” event will be an exciting night of boxing with 12 bouts scheduled in total and is the first time in the USA three WBC titles will be up for grabs in one event.

Bennett has been working his way towards a title opportunity and at 16-1, the 5-foot-6 southpaw is gracious to have earned the opportunity from the WBC to fight for the U.S. title.

Bennett, 25, has grown in the same gym as his friend Adrien Broner, a three-time world champion also from Cincinnati. Bennett serves as Broner’s chief sparring partner for all of his fights and as such Broner will be in attendance at the event to offer his support.

Pryor Jr., 35, is riding a two fight win streak and is looking to maintain that momentum against Kurtiss Colvin, a 9-1 power puncher with 8 knockouts. At a tall and lean 6-foot-4 Pryor always presents a difficult challenge for his opponents. This fight will be contested at the super middleweight division.

Jackson, 24, is another welterweight contender from the Queen City who trains at the same gym as Broner and under trainer Mike Stafford. At 10-2-1 Jackson is looking to deliver a lights out performance against undefeated Chris Rudd (12-0, 8 KOs) of Covington, Tenn.

The undercard features even more local Cincinnati fighters such as heavyweights David Long (12-2-2) and Danny Calhoun (2-0), super featherweight Devonte Allen (5-1), and promising welterweight Jonathan Steele (2-0), a former U.S. marine.
