Tickets on Sale Now for March 11th fight card at the SugarHouse Casino

 

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Philadelphia, PA. (March 8, 2017) – Super Lightweight prospect David Gonzales is looking to rebound from his 1st professional setback when he takes on Juan Rodriguez in the 6-round co-feature bout this Saturday night at the SugarHouse Casino in Philadelphia.

The show is promoted by King’s Promotions.

In the 8-round main event, Tyrone Brunson (23-6-2, 22 KO’s) takes on Brandon Quarles (18-3-1, 9 Ko’s) in a middleweight bout.

Gonzales, 27 years old originally from Philadelphia, but now calls San Antonio home, and is coming off a stunning 1st round stoppage defeat to Samuel Teah on November 11th.

“Training is going well in Texas.  I come down here as I have a job selling solar panels.  The sparring is great.  There are a lot of tough Mexican fighters down here.  They come hard and are always in shape,” Said Gonzales.

Gonzales now 8-1-2 with two knockouts, has gone back to the drawing board, and is working hard on his craft.

“I have been working on getting better on defense, boxing, just my balance and skills.”

In Rodriguez, he is facing a competitor that has a record of 6-6-1 with five knockouts, and has a knockout victory over previously undefeated Philly area fighter Nathaniel Rivas.

“I don’t know much other then he is tough, and comes to fight.  He isn’t the most skilled fighter, but I hear he hits hard.  But you can never underestimate any fighter.” Continue reading

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Philadelphia, PA. (March 2, 2017) – Middleweight’s Tyrone Brunson is ready for his bout with Brandon Quarles that will be the eight-round main event on Saturday, March 11th as King’s Promotions will stage it’s first show at the SugarHouse Casino in Philadelphia.

 

Brunson of Philadelphia has a record of 23-6-2, with 22 knockouts.

The 32 year-old Brunson turned professional in 2005, and started his career with 19 consecutive 1st round knockouts.  Included in that streak was a stoppage over James Morrow (8-1-2).  In his last bout Brunson and Ismael Garcia fought to a 10-round draw on October 14, 2016 in Philadelphia.

“My camp has been great,” said Brunson.  “I don’t know much about Quarles, but I am coming to work.  I don’t know if he will be putting in the work that I will on March 11.”

Brunson, who a decade ago was destined for greatness, believes a win will put him right back in the mix for a title shot.

“This win would put me closer to my dream.  Weather it is fighting for the USBA title or the NABF, I know something big will come after this.”

“It is great to fight at home.  It puts me in a comfort zone to fight in front of my home crowd.  I want to thank King’s Promotions for believing in me, and also want to thanks the fans of Philadelphia and around the world for sticking by me.”

Quarles of Alexandria, Virginia has a record of 18-3-1 with 9 knockouts.

The 30 year-old Quarles is a 7 year veteran, and has won 5 straight fights, with the latest being 6-round unanimous decision over Marcos Primera on June 25, 2016 in Greensboro, North Carolina.

“My training has gone really well,” said Quarles.  “I have seen Brunson fight on Showtime, and I haven’t seen anything from him that is over my head.  This is a good fight for me.  I am going into his hometown as the B-Side on his promoters card, so I know what I have to do,”

Quarles realizes what a win would do to kickstart his career.

“A win would boost my career.  I am not just an opponent, I am a guy who comes to win.  I am ready for a solid fight, and show the people what I am all about.  I don’t run my mouth, I let my fighting do the talking.”

“He knows how to lose, and so do I, so we will see who wants it more on March 11.”
