FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Philadelphia, Penn. (August 10, 2017)–Junior Middleweight Erik Spring is finally finding his groove, and he will be able to show it tomorrow night when he takes on undefeated David Wilson in a six-round featured bout at SugarHouse Casino in a Philadelphia.

The fight will be televised on LIVE on Eleven Sports beginning at 9 PM ET, and is promoted by King’s Promotions.

Spring of Reading, PA has a record of 9-1-2 with one knockout, and is unbeaten in his last five bouts (3-0-2).

He continued to step up the competition, and he looks for his 2nd consecutive win over an undefeated foe.

“My camp went great.  I got terrific sparring.  I did some work with (former two-time world champion) Kermit Cintron and that helped me tremendously,” said Spring.

In Wilson, he is taking on a fellow southpaw, but Spring will look to take the action to the New Haven, Connecticut resident.

“Wilson is a southpaw.  It should be a great fight.  Like me, he is a boxer, and the smarter fighter should win.  I have to be more of the aggressor, and I will look to bully him.”

Spring, who is 33 years-old, knows that time is now to begin to move towards being a contender, and after starting his career as a kickboxer, Spring is finally begin to feel 100% comfortable usuing just his hands.

“I think it is time for me to be on the rise and start to get known.  I feel now that after coming over from kickboxing, everything is starting to come together, and the best boxing is clearly ahead of me.  A win on Friday will go a long way into that upward swing, and I look to put on a great show.”

“It’s good to get a ton of support, and I enjoy performing in front of them.”
