Tyner vs. Gorges on 10/30

The stakes have just been raised for the main event of the Donofrio Boxing, in association with Jackie Kallen, professional boxing event being called the "WAR OF 1812 - THE REMATCH" at The Palace of Auburn Hills on Saturday, October 30.

Not only will Detroit's Lanardo "Pain Server" Tyner (24-3-1, 15 KOs) and Windsor, Ontario, Canada's Andre "Gorgeous" Gorges (9-1, 6 KOs) represent their countries in the ring to "break the tie" and finally determine the winner of the war of 1812, but now they will also battle for the NABA-US Welterweight Championship.

"Since there is so much on the line between the two countries, I thought it would be only proper for the winner to have a prestigious title belt to raise at the end of it," said event promoter Joseph Donofrio. "This is going to be a sensational cross-border battle and this only makes the tension that much higher."


Featured on the undercard will be Waterford, Michigan's "Pistol" Pete Cantu (16-6-1, 10 KOs) taking on Ann Arbor, Michigan's Robert "The Wolf" Jones (7-8-1, 2 KOs); plus Ypsilanti's Garvin "Chico" Crout (11-9-1, 6 KOs) going against Jackson, Michigan's Rasool Shakoor (3-8-1, 1 KO).

In a very special showcase attraction, Bakersfield, California, light welterweight Michael "The Silent Assassin" Dallas (15-0, 5 KOs) will face an opponent that is TBA, as will undefeated Chicago-based middleweight Ramon Valenzuela Jr. (2-0, 1 KO).

Additional fights are still TBA.

"This show will mark a triumphant return of boxing to The Palace of Auburn Hills and we're extremely proud to be able to offer such a compelling main event and undercard with so much local and international significance," added Donofrio.
