ST. PETERSBURG, FL (December 9, 2010) Massive Jamaican heavyweight prospect Lenroy “TNT” Thomas returns to battle this Saturday night, December 11th against veteran Arron Lyons, as the special attraction six round bout at Day I Rise, an action packed evening of professional boxing at Jannus Live in St. Petersburg, Florida.
Day I Rise is headlined by the homecoming return of former world champion Jeff “Left Hook” Lacy who will take on Dhafir Smith in the main event as part of the seven bout card.
The 25 year old Thomas sports a record of 16-1-0 with eight knockouts, having won every bout since losing a four round decision in his pro debut over four years ago. Standing 6’4”, the southpaw is known for a punishing jab and world class power in both hands.
This year Thomas has looked very sharp taking six round decisions over veterans Homero Fonseca and Joseph Rabotte, both bouts taking place at the A La Carte Event Pavilion in Tampa, Florida.
Promoted by TKO Boxing Promotions, Thomas is guided by Dan Birmingham who has trained numerous world champions including Winky Wright.
Said Chet Koerner, President of TKO Boxing Promotions. ‘We’ve seen a great deal of improvement in Lenroy’s skills over the last couple of years. He’s very popular in the Tampa-St. Pete area and in 2011 we want to expand his popularity and showcase him as the best young North American heavyweight.”
Fighting out of Las Cruces, New Mexico, the 29 year old Lyons has amassed a record of 11-9-1 with eight stoppages since turning professional five years ago.
Presented by Fight Night Productions LLC in association with Left Hook Promotions, doors on the evening of the event will open at 7pm with the first bell on the seven bout card set for 8pm. Advance tickets can be purchased through TIcketmaster (www.ticketmaster.com)
