Chicago, IL, Tuesday, October 14, 2014–Bobby Hitz announced that Hitz Boxing will close out its amazing 2014 with its annual Thanksgiving week “Fight Night at the Horseshoe Hammond” on Saturday, November 29 at 7:00 PM. The card will feature the always exciting Chicago super middleweight Mike “Hollywood” Jimenez (15-0, 10 KOs) who looks to maintain his perfect record as he takes on Ghanian Sena Agbeko (15-1, 15 KOs) in the eight round main event. Lightweight knock out specialist Frank “Time Bomb” Scalise (9-1, 9 KOs) and the hard working welterweight Genaro Mendez (8-2-1, 5 KOs) both of Chicago, fighting in separate bouts, are the co-main events.

“This has been a fantastic year for Hitz Boxing and we are closing out our 2014 campaign with this stacked card,” said Hitz. “Our guys have worked hard this year and the Hitz Boxing stable is stronger than ever. We look forward to hitting the ground running in 2015.”
The card features undefeated bantamweight Fidel Navarrete (6-0-2, 3 KOs), impressive welterweight Will Coix (4-0, 4 KOs), light heavyweight new comer Sammy “The Russian Concussion” Horowitz (1-0, 1 KO) and dynamic heavyweight Nick “The Terror” Asberry (6-0, 3 KOs), who looks to extend his unblemished record.
