Boxing Is Back in Atlanta and The Fans are Ready For It!

It has been over 20 years since then champion Evander "Real Deal" Holyfield laced up his gloves to bring championship caliber boxing to Atlanta. During this sporting sabbatical, The South in general seemed like an after thought when it comes to championship matches. Especially with marquee cities like Las Vegas, New York and Los Angeles holding on to the reigns tightly, providing high energy events with big named opponents clashing in the ring as the proverbial titans that they are.  Yet three men have ripped through their weight classes and have physically embodied the words the Andre 3000 (Outkast) spoke so passionately once upon a time "the South Got Something To Say".  Enter Deontay Wilder, Errol Spence Jr. and Gervonta "Tank" Davis. Three different camps, three different fighting styles and three different electrifying fighters putting a fuse in southern fight fans, that hasn't been lit in years! Errol Spence Jr. sold out Jerry's world earlier this year in his hometown of Dallas Texas. His ring demeanor and swagger has put him on the map and paved the way for his fast tract to multiple belts. https://www.facebook.com/reecmedia/photos/a.1881240642133202/2250397285217534/?type=3&theater The Heavy weight champion of the world has a new definition when it comes to the fierce intensity the the "Bronze Bomber" brings with every swing! Wilder stands at 6'7" with a cut frame that usually middle of lighter weight fighters carry. But don't let Deontay Wilder's lack of girth fool you,  he packs a punch that drops his opponents on a very regular occurrence. This is why they dub his team and fan base "The Bomb Squad"! He has a title contention coming in 2020 that is heavily anticipated! (Click here for Wilder info) https://www.instagram.com/p/B5dWhVlF-OS/ Then there's a [...]

Premier Boxing is Giving Atlanta Two Christmases To End 2019

This week Premier Boxing is making sure Christmas comes twice to Atlanta. The city will be treated to a major title fight as fan favorite and rising star, Gervonta "Tank" Davis attempts to make personal history in an effort to grab the vacant WBA World Lightweight Championship belt. Atlanta boxing fans are emitting an unfathomable feeling of admiration and celebration for "Tank". During my radio show if his name is even mentioned, the phone lines would light up like the north star with people hoping to win tickets or get more information on his upcoming match 12/28 at State Farm Arena. The feeling of pure excitement for this match and fandom for the fighter was so thick in the air during last nights open to the public media workout, that it could almost be tasted as soon as you entered the parking lot of Atlanta Sports Complex. The gym was packed almost an hour before the event was scheduled with fans and families eager to get a glimpse of the champion and his stable mates of Upton Boxing Center. They all looked forward to being woven into one of the most anticipated sporting events the city will experience this year. Even the young kids looked onward with a twinkle in their eyes as Gervanta made his way through the crowd minutes before the event kicked off. From the first bell of the workout, in Upton Boxing Center fashion, the energy, power and flare where absolutely present! First Mia "Killer Be Ellis took the square roped stage with her father and long time trainer Kenny Ellis to display and poise that only she could provide. Reec gets a word from Mia Ellis, post workout with her [...]
