Spadafora VS. Frankel Headlines Saturday April 6 at Mountaineer
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.
In what would be an astonishing feat, Spadafora looks to claim his 48th victory without a loss, the longest undefeated streak among any active boxer in the world today, & 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. Spadafora is coming off of a unanimous decision victory over top contender Solomon Egberime in December.
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.
Base ticket prices are VIP starting at $100, Section A $50, Section B $35 & Bleachers $25 plus service fee. Tickets can be purchased at Mountaineer Casino’s Players Club in person or by calling 1-800-80-40-HOT x8297 or online at www.MOREatMountaineer.com or www.Etix.com
