Don King, universally acknowledged as the World’s Greatest Promoter, recently commemorated his 92nd birthday. Far from slowing down, he’s been ceaselessly working to organize another boxing event sure to be etched in fans’ memories. This celebratory momentum will be in full swing during his “Only in America 92 Celebration” on Saturday, Nov. 4 at Casino Miami Jai Alai.
“We aim to present a boxing card where every fight feels like the main event,” King expressed.
“It’s going to be one memorable fight right after another, with more thrills in store.”
Adrien “The Problem” Broner, having secured World Champion titles across four weight divisions, persists in his journey back to the zenith of the welterweight division. He is set to compete with fellow Cincinnati, OH boxer, Chris Howard (18-2-1, 8 KOs) for the “People’s Championship”. On June 9th, Broner (35-4-1, 24 KOs) marked a triumphant return to the ring, bagging a unanimous decision victory against William “Hutch” Hutchinson. This marked his comeback after a hiatus of 26 months. He’s fervently pursuing the 140-pound world title.
Another fight to watch out for is the WBC Cruiserweight Championship 12-round fight. Top-contender Noel Mikaelian (26-2, 11 KOs), originally from Armenia and now Miami-based, faces a crucial test against ex-champion Ilunga Makabu (29-3, 25 KOs) who hails from Johannesburg, South Africa. After losing his title to Badou Jack, Makabu is eager to reclaim his championship status.
Additionally, two heavyweight bouts are set to captivate the audience.
Jonathan Guidry (19-1-2, 11 KOs), the WBA NABA Gold Heavyweight Champion from Dulac, LA, is slated to defend his title. His opponent? WBC FECARBOX Heavyweight champion, Jesus Escalera (18-0, 18 KOs) from Riverview, FL.
In a separate heavyweight fight, ex-WBA Heavyweight Champion Trevor Bryan (22-1, 15 KOs) is set to make a comeback post his title loss, against Cassius Chaney (22-1, 15 KOs) from New London, CT.
Moreover, the widely loved WBA Continental America’s middleweight champion, Ian Green (17-2, 11 KOs) from Haledon, NJ, is also scheduled to fight. He will be defending his title against Mark “The Bazooka” DeLuca (30-4, 18 KOs) from Quincy, MA.
