JacQuan “Da King” Townes prepares for his September 29th WBF Title fight in Charlotte, North Carolina with a little more at stake than his previous six fights.
A confident Townes 5-1 (4 KO’s) is training for what is currently, the biggest fight of his professional boxing career. Townes will battle Miree “The Pink Panther” Coleman on Vegas Grand Boxing Promotion’s card in a showdown, which will crown a new WBF Cruiserweight Silver International titlist.
The showdown, billed as “Marine vs. Army,” will not only crown a title, but it will settle a nasty rivalry, determine territorial bragging rights, and help determine which military division is stronger – the Marines or the Army.
Townes cherishes this opportunity, and he is training hard to win. “I’m training as hard as I do for every fight. I’m running daily, constantly eating right, training, and doing lots of sparring… “I’m doing everything I need to do to be ready when I step into the ring,” says Townes.
Townes, who is from Tarboro, North Carolina, began boxing as part of a weight loss program. In 2017, he became the North Carolina Boxing Newcomer. Townes believes all of his success comes from his love of fighting and his faith in God. “I love to fight. I don’t think you can’t beat someone who loves to fight,” says Townes. “Also, without God, you are nothing and through God, everything is possible!”
Townes has a very confident and calm demeanor as he talks about his battle with Coleman. “On paper, he is supposed to have all of the advantages over me. He has more experience and a better record; However, the biggest part of his game is his mouth. He talks a lot,” says a laughing Townes. “I just have to bring the fight to him.”
On September 29, Vegas Grand Boxing Promotions will deliver a powerful boxing card filled with some of North Carolina’s young talent. This must-see event will have added punch when United States Military rivalries are renewed and nasty rivals JacQuan “Da King” Townes and Miree “The Pink Panther” Coleman do battle in a fight billed “Marine vs. Army” for the WBF Cruiserweight Silver International title.
Townes 5-1 (4 KO’s) a former U.S. Marine turned to the sport of boxing as part of a weight loss program. After a minor setback in his first professional fight, Townes has run up a five-fight win streak. The 2017 North Carolina Boxing newcomer of the year leans on his faith in GOD and love to fight to draw strength. Townes is extremely confident and had this to say about the September 29th opponent Townes calls a “Facebook Thug”: “On paper, he is supposed to have all of the advantages over me. He has more experience and a better record; However, the biggest part of his game is his mouth. He talks a lot, laughs Townes. I just have to bring the fight to him.”
Coleman 6-5 (4 KO’s) is dubbed “The Pink Panther” because his army unit was called the Panthers and he wears pink boxing gear to bring awareness to breast cancer. Coleman, of Fayetteville, NC is one of a few North Carolina fighters willing to risk his young record and take chances against tough competition. Coleman’s showmanship is as good as any fighter in the world, and his move down to Cruiserweight should highlight his power and natural physique. “The Pink Panther” is very confident and does not see Townes as seasoned or skilled enough to present any problems and can’t wait for the first bell to ring, “We gonna settle it in the ring. We gonna see when that bell rings!”
Vegas Grand Boxing Promotions’ September 29th card will also include must-see talents Chordale “The Gift” Booker 10-0 (5 KO’s), Dijon “2 Slick” Cissel, Buck “Bombs Away” Courson, Demonte Cherry, Antonio “The Mechanic” Robertson, Lamarco “The Bull” Ellis, Tivan “Tezmania” Young, Bryan Rae Jr, Lionel Charles, Lavar Lowe, Preston “The Italian Stallion” Wilson, Stephen Dailey Jr, Khalil “Gods Warrior” Smoot, Will “Badnewz” Williams, Edvis Galloway, Rydell Mayes Jr, and Quinton “The Underdog” Rankin 12-5-2 (9 KO’s).
