Don "DA BOMB" George, Ready To Explode on ShoBox !!!
On April 30, 2010, ShoBox “The New Generation” will feature Cestus Management's undefeated Super Middleweight, Don "DA’ BOMB" George (19-0-1 w/17 KOS) in his home town of Chicago, Illinois. "DA’ BOMB” who is of Irish and Greek bloodlines is true to his fighting heritage and is ready able and willing to step-up to the next level and fight anybody. The first step will be taken against the tough and rugged African contender Osumanu Adama (17-1 w/13 KOS ) over eight rounds, at the UIC Pavilion in Chicago, Illinois. The fight is guaranteed to be a ShoBox shootout as both of these super middleweights can flat out bang!
In George's two previous outings he looked very impressive in disposing of the tough and experienced Jason Naugler and the hard punching Phil “The Drill” Williams, delivering sensational 3rd and 4th round knockouts. George who is notoriously know for his knockout power has KO'd 17 of his 20 opponents all within 5 rounds. These wins are a result of George using a good sound defense complimented with a savage offensive style that features an explosive and brutal one punch knockout capability.
George has been in training for this fight against Adama since the middle of February and has had a phenomenal training camp and is ready to put on the type of performance that ShoBox is always looking for, which is quality fighters who produce quality fights, that generate PURE EXCITEMENT!!!
Cestus Management, who is the manager of George and guides his career, feels that their charge has been properly groomed and is ready to experience the next level in boxing. The company’s vast experience with the ShoBox series and other premium television networks has served to prepare the Chicago Irish/Greek BOMBER for his first major moment in the spotlight.
Mike Michael (Exclusive Adviser) said, “Donovan George's two previous wins against Jason Naugler and Phil Williams where exceptional. “I’ve been saying this from day one, that it would only be a matter of time before Donovan becomes a force to be reckoned with in the Super-Middleweight division. Look at the savage ferocity that he displayed in his last two fights and the way that he dismantled two very live opponents in a combined total of seven rounds. In these fights "DA BOMB" produced entertainment, great anticipation, knockdowns and "KO"s and that's what boxing fans want to see when they pay their money.
Michael continued, "I have seen Donovan grow and mature and evolve as an athlete, where i have seen an overall improvement in his ability as a professional fighter. So i am very confident and feel that Donovan is 110% ready to take the next step when he makes his ShoBox" debut. Michael added, "Donovan George always reminds me of the fighters of the 1950's era, who where fearless and fought with a savage go for broke fighting style. I believe that Don "DA BOMB" George is a throw-back and everyone will see this on ShoBox April 30th.
