On Saturday night, June 18th, Hitz Boxing will present a night of championship boxing at the Parkway Bank Sports Complex in Rosemont, Illinois.
The card will be headlined by two Illinois State Title matches.
In the eight-round lightweight title bout, the always exciting Daniel Buenaventura will take on Angel Barrera.
The fight is a rematch of the July 17, 2021 bout that saw Barrera squeak out a majority decision in a back and forth brawl that many Chicago boxing insiders called one of the best fights of the past 25 years,
Buenaventura of Chicago, has a record of 4-3, but that does not tell the story. The 20 year-old has been on the wrong end of debatable decisions, and is now riding a two-fight winning streak, with the latest being a third-round stoppage over Yamin Muhammad on April 1st.
Barrera of Chicago is 3-0 and is coming off a unanimous decision over Isaiah Varnell on November 24th in Rosemont.
In the eight-round super middleweight super middleweight State title bout, popular Jimmy Quiter takes on Simon Edward Buettner.
Quiter of Oak Park, Illinois is 4-1-1 with four knockouts. The 26 year-old Quiter won his first four bouts and will be looking to get back in the win column following his first loss that took place on April 21st to Mirady Zola.
Buettner of Carpentersville, Illinois is 8-1 with four knockouts. Buettner has wins over Sam Horowitz (2-0) and his last bout when he defeated James Ballard (10-2) on July 17, 2021 in Rosemont.
“I am very honored to be bringing back the state titles. It gives fighters, especially young fighters, opportunities to fight for a title that they can represent that state of Illinois. The belt will not only give fighters bragging rights, but it will plant the seeds for many matchups that the local fans will come out to see,” said Bobby Hitz, CEO of Hitz Boxing.
More Bouts will be announced shortly.
