Spadafora vs. Frankel at Mountaineer

In what could be one of the greatest comebacks the sport of boxing has ever seen, Paul “The Pittsburgh Kid” Spadafora is defending his undefeated title again on Saturday April 6th returning to the Mountaineer Casino, Racetrack & Resort at the Harv. Spadafora at one time was on the road to be one of the greatest in boxing history, but, his poor lifestyle choices lead him down a self-destructive path ultimately ruining his career. Spadafora had multiple troubles with alcohol, drug abuse and violence all leading to a criminal record that cost Spadafora all of his possessions since relinquishing his IBF junior lightweight title belt nine years ago.

Coming off a huge win in December against olympian boxer, Solomon Egberime, Spadafora looks to claim his 48th victory without a loss. This is the longest undefeated streak among any active boxer in the world today. Spadafora plans to climb back into the World’s Top 5 of the Jr. Welterweight Division that features such names as Juan Manuel Marquez, Brandon Rios, Danny Garcia, & Amir Khan.

Mountaineer Casino, Racetrack & Resort in association with 8-Time World Champion Roy Jones Jr. TNT Promotions presents “Live Championship Boxing” at The Harv on Saturday April 6th, 2013. In the 10-Round Main Event, undefeated former IBF & IBC World Champion Paul “The Pittsburgh Kid” Spadafora attempts his next step of fighting himself into another shot at a World Championship when he steps into the ring with fellow contender & WBC (USNBC) former Champion “Red Hot” Rob Frankel of Denver, Colorado.

The Mile High City’s favorite Frankel comes storming onto the stage winning 4 of his last 5 with his lone defeat as a tough decision to Cleotis Pendarvis, a fighter Spadafora is currently looking up to in the rankings. Frankel has forever yearned for a shot at Spadafora, which he earned in January by dominating previous Spadafora foe Jermaine White.

A full slate of battles are in store for this evening of entertainment involving fighters such as crowd favorites Wilkins “The Hispanic Hurricane” Santiago & Billy “Hutch” Hutchinson, a highly anticipated “Border War” between East Liverpool, OH’s Joey “Hitman” Holt vs. Wheeling, WV’s Bruce Runkle, Heavyweight Ed Latimore & more to be announced.
