"BACK WITH A VENGEANCE" AT THE HARV NEXT SATURDAY MAY 17TH

 

FORMER HEAVYWEIGHT WORLD CHAMPION SHANNON BRIGGS vs. GREER

"THE CANNON IS BACK & COMING FOR WLADIMIR KLITSCHKO!"

 

MEZA-CLAY vs. LANDEROS, HUTCHINSON vs. VENTUS, LATIMORE vs. ABNER, NIEVES vs. TAPIA & MORE!

 

 

Mountaineer Casino, Racetrack & Resort in association with 8-Time World Champion Roy Jones Jr. & TNT Promotions presents "Back With a Vengeance" live at The Harv on Saturday May 17, 2014. A full bill of professional boxing is on tap featuring the highly anticipated return of the ultimate toe-to-toe action warrior Monty Meza-Clay when he faces Adolfo "El Terror" Landeros of Mexico City, Mexico in the Main Event. Both Meza-Clay & Landeros held the IBA World Title & now they lock horns in what promises to be a crowd pleasing back-&-forth battle.

 

In the evening's Special Attraction, the comeback of former WBO Heavyweight Champion of the World Shannon "The Cannon" Briggs continues when he faces spoiler Matt "Gator" Greer. Briggs, the last American Heavyweight World Champion & actor known for his roles in movies such as Bad Boys II & Transporter II, took some time away from the sport after a decision loss to Vitali Klitschko, but now is coming off two consecutive knockout victories in 2014 & eager to get Wladimir Klitschko in the ring once & for all as he feels the Ukrainian has dodged him his entire career.

 

In the Co-Feature, another action packed war of attrition is expected when fan favorite Bill "Hutch" Hutchinson collides with "Lightning" Larry Ventus. Team Hutch will be back in the house to cheer on their favorite son as he seeks to steal the show once again in attempt of his 9th victory & continue his rise in the rankings while the ever brash Ventus looks to quiet the party.

 

"It's Going Down, I'm Yelling Timber" when Heavyweights Ed Latimore & 6'4" behemoth Felix "The Problem Solver" Abner step into the ring. Will the lurking undefeated prospect Latimore do what it takes to come away with the victory?...The Problem Solver believes he has the answer, but it's not the one Latimore is hoping for...

Northeast OH's newest favorite son Antonio "Carita" Nieves earns his second opportunity on the big stage after capturing "Performance of the Night" honors at Mountaineer in his last bout in scoring an impressive stoppage victory. Nieves takes on tough Mexican challenger Adalberto Tapia.

Undefeated Dusty Hernandez Harrison is a late addition to the card. Harrison is 21-0 (11 KO) and only 19 years old. His opponent will be announced.

Also planned for this big night of entertainment is the pro debut of Donnie "Too Quick" Marshall, celebrity appearances & as always the electrifying Ring Dolls & the mixes of the renowned DJ Boogie. Future Hall of Famer Roy Jones Jr. adds "Fans, don't miss another wonderful outing of world class boxing & exciting casino action before & after. Don't make me look for you now!".
