Antoine Douglas vs. Ibahiem King on June 14th
Nutley, NJ (June 5, 2013)—On Friday night, June 14th, a special night of boxing will take place as Greg Cohen Promotions and GH3 Promotions will present ESPN’s Friday Night Fight’s at the South Mountain Arena in West Orange, New Jersey.
One of the featured fights on the undercard will pit rising and undefeated Middleweight prospect Antoine “Action” Douglas taking on his most experienced rival in Ibahiem King in a bout scheduled for six rounds.
Douglas of Washington, D.C. has shot out to a perfect mark of 7-0 with five knockouts and this will already be his sixth fight of 2013.
Douglas has been stepping up the competition with each fight and has already appeared on ESPN’s Friday Night Fights two times in 2013.
“I am always ready to fight, no matter how experienced he is or what his record is. I have the same mindset”, said Douglas.
“I have been working and sparring with southpaws. I am faster and stronger”
Douglas is not worried that King has 19 professional fights.
“I am faster, I have more skills and with my amateur background, I look at myself as being the more experienced fighter”
King of West Palm Beach, Florida has a record of 11-8 with two knockouts and is by far the most experienced for the twenty year-old Douglas.
This will be the seventh undefeated fighter that King will have faced which includes top prospects Abraham Han, Edwin Rodriguez, J’Leon Love and Delen Parsley. King is coming off a 3rd round stoppage over Anthony McManaway on February 16th.
