Fans will also have the opportunity to watch special attraction bouts featuring Team North Carolina’s Brandon Knox and Washington D.C. middleweight Adan Gonzalez in separate bouts. The 2012 NCBA tournament Silver Medalist, Knox is considered the best fighter traveling from the Carolinas for this first ever event. Gonzalez, a Georgetown University student who won multiple amateur tournaments, has been featured in various media outlets for his success in boxing and involvement in charitable causes.

“I hate to sound like a broken record but I really love the structure of this event,” said Promoter Jake Smith of Jake the Snake Promotions. “There are a lot of fighters out there and only a few of the tournaments feature boxers from different areas. I’m hoping to run future events like this and believe the fans will have a great time.”
