All three will fight for the first time under the Real Deal Sports and Entertainment banner next Thursday, October 19 in Atlanta, Georgia at the Georgia Freight Depot in a ‘Special Edition’ Hall of Fame Tribute and Birthday Celebration for Holyfield who will turn 55 on fight night.
Tickets priced at $150, $100 and $60 can be purchased in advance at TheRealDealBoxing.com. VIP Tables for $2500 and $1500 are also available for purchase.

“I’m thrilled to be working with these three top prospects,” said Holyfield. “All three are very serious about putting in the work it takes to become a world champion and I look forward to providing them the opportunities towards that goal.”
Stated KEVIN O’SULLIVAN, V.P. of Operations and Development for Real Deal Sports and Entertainment, “We’re very excited to add Joshua, Marquis and Justin to our stable of world class contenders and top prospects. All three exhibit the qualities it takes to be a world champion and we can’t wait for boxing fans to watch their development.”
A two-time National Golden Gloves Champion, the 24-year-old Joshua Temple was known as one of the heaviest hitters in the amateur ranks before turning professional. Having won all four of his initial professional bouts by knockout, Temple will battle fellow undefeated cruiserweight prospect BRYAN DANIELS, (5-0, 3 KO’s) of Worcester, MA over six rounds next Thursday, October 19 at the Georgia Freight Depot in Atlanta, GA.
Since turning professional last year, the 26-year-old Marquis Moore has quickly impressed fight fans in Colorado and New York City compiling a record of 5-0 with three knockouts. One of the top national amateurs in 2013 and 2014, Moore is ready to graduate from six round bouts in the near future as his exciting style is truly geared towards success in the professional ranks.
Moore will battle ZACHARY BUNCE, (2-2, 1 KO), of Las Vegas, Nevada in a scheduled six rounder next Thursday in Atlanta. Moore is co-promoted by Jeff Coyle and Mountain West Professional Boxing.
Stated Jeff Coyle, “We have a world-class boxer in Marquis’s Moore, quite frankly I don’t see who’s going to be able to beat this guy. We couldn’t be more excited about teaming up with Real Deal Sports and Entertainment. These guys are a top notch group and we look forward to putting on some fantastic events with them in the near future.”
Known as ‘The Brooklyn Torch’, the 24-year-old Justin Biggs lit up the amateur ranks with multiple national and local accolades. Among his titles were 2013 USA Boxing Metro Champion, 2015 Bergen PAL Champion, 2015 New York Boxing Tournament Champion and 2017 New York Golden Gloves Champion.
With a wealth of press in the New York City area during his amateur career, Biggs’ highly anticipated professional debut in the junior middleweight division will be announced shortly. He is trained by Yoel Judah, father of multiple time world champion Zab Judah.
Biggs will make his pro debut next Thursday in Atlanta against KENDALL BATTS, (0-2), of North Carolina in a scheduled four round bout.
