Despite the current epidemiological situation, Eye of the Tiger Management and D&D Boxing will stage a show at the Holiday Inn in Cuernavaca, on Punching Grace, on June 4th.
This card, presented by La Queen and Mise-O-Jeu, will be marked by the return to the ring of three crowd favorites, David Lemieux (42-4, 35 KOs), Simon Kean (19-1-0, 18 KOs) and Erik Bazinyan (25-0, 19 KOs).
In addition, rising US stars Samuel Arnold III (1-0-0) as well as twin brothers Antonio Perez (pro debut) and Angel Perez (pro debut) will have their first fight under the aegis of both EOTTM and D&D Boxing.
“David, Erik and Simon are on the doorstep of world title fights. It is therefore crucial for us to keep them active with quality opponents. In addition, our association with D&D Boxing allows us to secure young talents such as the Perez twins and Samuel Arnold III. The latter are among the most coveted American prospects and we are fortunate to have them on our team. They are tigers who will bring strong emotions to boxing fans for many years to come,” said Eye of the Tiger Management’s president, Camille Estephan.
Although his fight was called off on April 17, Lemieux does not have to wait long before hitting the ropes again. He will have a good challenge to face as he faces tough Peruvian David Zegarra (34-4, 21 KOs).
Bazinyan will face Scott Sigmon (35-14-1, 18 KOs), who gave some trouble to none other than Roy Jones Jr., the double amateur world champion Matvey Korobov and ex-USBA middleweight champion Luis Arias.
The two proteges of Marc Ramsay will therefore have to be cautious during their respective duels in order to continue their ascent.
Kean will face contender American Donald Haynesworth (16-5-1, 14 KOs) in a fight scheduled for 8 rounds. The latter is known for his aggressiveness and great power that he manages to generate with both hands.
