Kenny Ellis returns Saturday

19.06.05 - Veteran Kenny Ellis (34-6-2, 22KO’s) ventures back into the ring at the Emerald Queen Casino’s Battle at the Boat boxing series this Saturday, June 25th at the I-5 showroom. The first bout is scheduled for 7:30 pm. Ellis will face the steely and unorthodox competitor, James Lubwama (16-2, 9 KO’s) from Florida. Ellis, still fueled from his 6th round TKO win over Aaron Norwood (21-6-2), is ready for action..

“Kenny will be busy,” said promoter Brian Halquist. “We are sending ratings packages out to all of the major sanctioning bodies after this fight and are looking for a money fight, a fight that will get Kenny back in the world ratings,” Halquist said. This additional incentive promises the energy and tenacity of any high-stakes fight.

Also on the card will be rising star, Walter “2 guns” Wright (6-1-0, 3 KO’s) who is coming off a win on ESPN2 against Darnell Boone (4-1-1). This will be Wright’s third fight in six weeks. “Walter is always on weight, always training and eager to go, and he will get big opportunities because of it,” Halquist commented when asked about Wright’s future prospects. “The ESPN2 fight was a last-minute decision, but because of Walter’s great training and his love of the ring, he was able to land his first of many TV spots,” Halquist said. Wright will face Jerome Elder (9-7-0, 9KO’s) out of Indianapolis, Indiana.
