The Hitz Boxing event scheduled for October 2 at the “Venue” in the Horseshoe Casino, in Hammond, Indiana, will feature several prominent Chicago-based fighters in addition to Irish middleweight prospect Andy Lee (22-1, 16 KOs). Scheduled to see action at the latest installment of “Fight Night at the Horseshoe” are comebacking middleweight “Macho” Miguel Hernandez (20-11, 10 KO’s), blood-and-guts junior middleweight Henry “Western Warrior” Coyle (11-2, 10 KOs), talented welterweight Achour Esho (8-0, 5 KOs), middleweight knockout artist Josh Crouch (6-1, 6 KOs) and up-and-coming light welterweight Russell Fiore (4-0-1, 4 KOs)..
Hernandez is best known from his appearance on season three of The Contender boxing reality series. Despite a recent disappointing string of fights, the 35-year-old pressure fighter didn’t start boxing until age 27 and says he has made the necessary corrections and will return to top form beginning October 2.
Coyle is a former World Military Games Champion and is tremendously popular both in his adopted home of Chicago and back in his homeland of Ireland. His last fight, a TKO 2 over Marcus Luck, ended with his opponent suffering a disappointing arm injury. This time Coyle vows no matter who they put in front of him, they are going to sleep.
Esho and Fiore were both impressive in their appearances at the Horseshoe last May and will look to continue their undefeated ways in front of the hometown fans. Schereville, Indiana’s Crouch is coming off a disappointing No Contest verdict against 9-1 Jon Schmidt when Schmidt suffered an accidental cut. Crouch will be out to crunch some bones once again at the Horseshoe.
Hitz Boxing CEO Bobby Hitz says the high-class atmosphere and luxurious surroundings the Horseshoe has to offer make this show a Las Vegas-style night of boxing you don’t have to get on a plane to enjoy.
“This is the best place to see boxing in the area, bar none. The Horseshoe Casino has an intimate, comfortable venue with luxurious seats, a spectacular gaming area, free parking, exquisite food and all the amenities — and we’re 20 minutes from Downtown Chicago. Plus, we’ve got a full-night of world-class boxing to offer for reasonable ticket prices.”
The Venue at the Horseshoe Casino is an intimate, comfortable room with luxurious, unobstructed seating throughout. The casino also offers a spectacular gaming area, free parking and a large selection of exquisite dining options.
Tickets for “Fight Night at the Horseshoe” are on sale, starting at a fan appreciation price of $10, and are available at the “Venue” box office, ticketmaster.com and all Ticketmaster outlets.
