In what could be one of the greatest comebacks the sport of boxing has ever seen, Paul â€œThe Pittsburgh Kidâ€Â Spadafora is defending his undefeated title again on Saturday April 6th returning to the Mountaineer Casino, Racetrack & Resort at the Harv.Â SpadaforaÂ 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.Â SpadaforaÂ hadÂ multiple troubles with alcohol, drug abuse and violence all leading to a criminal record that costÂ SpadaforaÂ 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, SpadaforaÂ looks to claim his 48thÂ victory without a loss. This isÂ the longest undefeated streak among any active boxer in the world today. Spadafora plans to climb back into the Worldâ€™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 & ResortÂ in association with 8-Time World ChampionÂ Roy Jones Jr. TNT PromotionsÂ presents â€œLive Championship Boxingâ€ at The Harv onÂ Saturday April 6th, 2013. In the 10-Round Main Event, undefeated former IBF & IBC World ChampionÂ Paul â€œThe Pittsburgh Kidâ€ SpadaforaÂ 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 ChampionÂ â€œRed Hotâ€ Rob FrankelÂ of Denver, Colorado.
The Mile High Cityâ€™s favoriteÂ FrankelÂ 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 favoritesÂ Wilkins â€œThe Hispanic Hurricaneâ€ SantiagoÂ &Â Billy “Hutch” Hutchinson, a highly anticipated â€œBorder Warâ€ between East Liverpool, OHâ€™sÂ Joey â€œHitmanâ€ HoltÂ vs. Wheeling, WVâ€™sÂ Bruce Runkle, HeavyweightÂ Ed LatimoreÂ & more to be announced.
