Broner vs. Howard – Nov. 4 – 9 pm ET
Don King, the unparalleled boxing promoter, just rang in his 92nd birthday. Yet, he’s far from slowing down; he’s been tirelessly assembling another unforgettable night of boxing. This celebratory spirit will carry on in his next promotion dubbed the “Only in America 92 Celebration.” Scheduled for Saturday, November 4, at Casino Miami Jai Alai.
Don King says, “We’re delivering a boxing card where each fight serves as a co-main event. It’s going to be a night filled with thrilling bouts, and there’s more on the horizon.”
Adrien “The Problem” Broner, who’s secured world championships in four weight divisions, continues his climb back to the peak of the welterweight division. He’ll be fighting another boxer from Cincinnati, OH—Chris Howard (18-2-1, 8 KOs)—for what they’re calling the “People’s Championship.” Broner (35-4-1, 24 KOs) returned to the ring on June 9 and won a unanimous decision against William “Hutch” Hutchinson. Being away from boxing for nearly 26 months, Broner is now on a quest to secure the 140-pound world title.
The next fight worth watching is in the WBC Cruiserweight Championship. This 12-round bout pits Noel Mikaelian (26-2, 11 KOs), originally from Armenia but fighting out of Miami, against former champion Ilunga Makabu (29-3, 25 KOs) from Johannesburg, South Africa. Makabu lost his title to Badou Jack but is determined to reclaim it after Jack stepped away from the championship.
But the excitement doesn’t stop there; two heavyweight fights are also on the card.
Jonathan Guidry (19-1-2, 11 KOs) from Dulac, LA, will put his WBA NABA Gold Heavyweight title on the line against WBC FECARBOX Heavyweight champ, Jesus Escalera (18-0, 18 KOs) from Riverview, FL.
Adding to the heavyweight scene, former WBA Heavyweight Champion Trevor Bryan (22-1, 15 KOs) will make his return to the ring to fight Cassius Chaney (22-1, 15 KOs) from New London, CT.
Additionally, fan-favorite Ian Green (17-2, 11 KOs) from Haledon, NJ, who holds the WBA Continental America’s middleweight title, will defend his belt against Mark “The Bazooka” DeLuca (30-4, 18 KOs) from Quincy, MA.
