Augusta, GA -
Professional boxing returns to Augusta this weekend for the first time in years.
Local lightweight boxers will make their pro debut at the CSRA Fight Party Round 1 at Paine College’s Heal Complex on Saturday night.
Fighters Divante Jones, Brandon Spencer and Jade Ealy will be among those throwing punches at the event.
“Some future champions are going to be debuted,” said Barry Smith of Lando Sports. “We haven’t had a pro fight in Augusta in nearly four years. We’ve had some great champions here like Paul Williams, Ray Whitfield, and the late Vernon Forrest.”
Event organizers expect to see more than 2000 fans turn out for the event.
Tickets are $20 for general admission, $30 for premium seating, and $45 for ringside seats.
