WORLD’S GREATEST PROMOTER DON KING HAS LINED UP FIVE TITLE FIGHTS FOR ONLY IN AMERICA 92 CELEBRATION ON SATURDAY, NOV. 4 AT CASINO MIAMI JAI ALAI

PhilBoxing.com


MIAMI, FL (October 23, 2023)—The Only in America 92 Celebration just got bigger as promoter Don King has put together five title fights for the Saturday, Nov. 4 extravaganza at the Casino Miami Jai Alai.

King is going to celebrate his recent 92nd birthday with five championship fights.

The Nov. 4th card will have three co-feature title fights headlined by the 12-round battle for the WBC Cruiserweight vacant title as the number one ranked fighter, Mikaelian (26-2, 11 KOs) of Miami, FL via Armenia taking on the number two ranked fighter and former champion Makabu (29-3, 25 KOs) from Johannesburg, South Africa via the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Makabu, who lost his title to Badou Jack as he was stopped in the 12th round, is hoping to regain his belt after Badou Jack relinquished the title.

“The fighters will distinguish themselves as world champions in these five title fights,” said King.

“They will be the people’s champions. They will distinguish themselves to the fans. Boxing will return to the beautiful fans.”

The other tri-feature bout will spotlight two heavyweight champions putting their respective belts on the line. The NABA Gold Heavyweight Champion Jonathan Guidry (19-1-2, 11 KOs) of Dulac, LA will tangle with the undefeated FECARBOX Heavyweight Champion Jesus Escalera (19-0, 19 KOs) of Riverview, FL via Puerto Rico.

The WBA Continental North America Heavyweight Championship will feature the former WBA champion Trevor Bryan (22-1, 15 KOs) of Ft. Lauderdale, FL via New York taking on challenger Cassius Chaney (22-1, 15 KOs) of New London, CT.

And now King has added the WBC Bridgerweight 12-round title bout and the WBC Youth Super Lightweight championship. The Bridgerweight championship will feature Mike Perez (29-3-1, 20 KOs) of Cork, Ireland via Cuba, who will meet Andrej Pesic (14-2-1, 7 KOs) of Bayern, Germany via Serbia. The

WBC Youth Super Lightweight title will find Ft. Lauderdale’s DeVon William (3-0, 3 KOs) taking on Marik Black (2-1-1, 1 KOs) of Versailles, KY.

King, who recently turned 92 years of age, has invited O’Jays founder and lead singer Edward Willis Levert, to celebrate the Nov. 4th card and King’s birthday. Levert, King’s dear friend, has volunteered to sing the national anthem and be a part of King’s Only in America 92 Celebration with the three national anthems of boxing—Give the People What They Want, Backstabbers and Money Money Money.

“I want to thank owner Phil Ruffin and general manager Daniel Licciardi for their support in allowing us to have two super nights of boxing at their Casino Miami Jai Alai,” said King. “The Only in America 92 Celebration” extravaganza will be like no other and it will encompass two exciting nights of championship boxing.”

King’s second night of boxing, since he had so many title fights, will be held on Saturday, Dec. 2, also at Casino Miami Jai Alai.

Adrien “The Problem” Broner, a four-time World Champion in four weight divisions, continues his return to the top of the welterweight division as he meets another Cincinnati, OH fighter in Howard (18-2-1, 8 KOs) for the “People’s Championship” set for Saturday, Dec. 2. Broner (35-4-1, 24 KOs) made his return to the ring on June 9th a successful one in winning a unanimous decision over William “Hutch” Hutchinson. It was Broner’s first fight in nearly 26 months, who is on a mission to secure the 140-pound world title.

Broner will dedicate this fight to his late trainer and mentor Mike Stafford, who passed away at the age of 67 in September. A 10-bell salute will be held prior to the co-main event featuring Ian Green.

The super sensation fan favorite and WBA Continental America’s middleweight champion, Ian Green (17-2, 11 KOs) from Haledon, NJ will also be featured on the Dec. 2nd spectacular night of boxing as he defends his title against an opponent to be named.

Tre’Sean Wiggins (15-5-3, 8 KOs) of Newburgh, NY will defend his NABA Welterweight championship against Pittsburgh’s Bill Hutchinson (20-3-4, 9 KOs).

Fecarbox Lightweight Champion Antonio Williams (16-0-1, 7 KOs) of Ft. Lauderdale, FL will defend his title against Antonio Perez (8-0, 5 KOs) of Harrisburg, PA.
