Dale Brown: The Cowboy Is Back In The Saddle Again
HOLLYWOOD, FL, June 23 – There has never been a nickname so fitting for a fighter than Dale Brown’s ‘Cowboy’ moniker. Like the legendary cowboys of the past, this Cruiserweight contender isn’t one for a lot of meaningless talk or outlandish statements. He goes in, does his job, gives a tip of his hat, and he’s off to do it again. That’s been the story of Brown’s career, which spans over 11 years and that has seen him battle the elite Cruiserweights in the world. More importantly, his out of the ring demeanor has gained him a legion of fans who will follow him wherever he goes..

On Friday, June 30, Brown will be returning to the Seminole Hard Rock Live Arena in Hollywood, Florida to take on Shane Swartz in a ten round bout on the “Ring Warriors” card.
“This is an important fight for me because if I win, I stay in the title picture; I lose, and that may be it for me,” said Brown. “So I’m training as hard as ever and I’m looking forward to putting on a great show for the Florida fans, who have been very good to me over the last couple of years.”
For Brown, who has won two in a row since a highly disputed 12 round decision loss to current undisputed Cuiserweight Champion O’Neil Bell in May of 2005, it’s a fight that will move him one step closer to a rematch if he can pull off the victory.
“I definitely want a rematch with O’Neil Bell because we have unfinished business to settle,” said the Calgary native. “This time I’m determined not to leave the fight in the hands of the judges though, and I believe I can achieve that goal if we fight again.”
In the “Ring Warriors” main event, unbeaten knockout artist Juan Urango will face Australia’s Naoufel Ben Rabah in a 12 round bout for the vacant IBF Junior Welterweight Championship of the World. ESPN2 Friday Night Fights will televise the show, beginning at 9pm ET / 6pm PT.
Also featured on “Ring Warriors” will be an important Heavyweight bout between former World Champion Oliver “The Atomic Bull” McCall and power puncher Gary “Bring Da Pain” Bell.
