On Saturday night, September 19, boxing returns to Harrahs Philadelphia with a terrific card promoted by King’s Promotions.
In the main event, it will be a 6-round rematch of Super Lightweights when Antonio DuBose battles Jesus Lule.
DuBose and Lule fought to a 4-round draw on June 27 in Bethlehem, PA.
Dubose, 27 years-old of Philadelphia has a record of 7-0-1 with 2 knockouts.
Lule, 31 years-old of Fort Myers, Florida has a deceiving record of 7-13-1 with 1 knockout.
He has faced 8 undefeated fighters and is coming off a knockout loss to Mason Menard (29-1) on August 8 in Opelousas, Louisiana.
DuBose is ready to emphatically defeat Lule and erase anyone’s doubt’s who is the superior fighter.
“Everything is great and I am feeling good. I had a lot on my mind heading into the last fight. I wasn’t myself. I noticed that I was just running at him and not doing the things that got me to the seven wins. I was fighting his fight. This fight, I will be myself and that means being more elusive and throwing more combinations,” said DuBose.
DuBose promises a much better performance and is motivated for his rematch.
“I was upset by the draw and it motivates me.”
He isn’t taking much from the first fight and will look to fight a complete fight.
“I remember a few things from the first fight that I have to correct. You will see a different Antonio DuBose on Saturday night.”
This bout will be Dubose’s first six round bout and he is eager at the opportunity.
“I feel six rounds will be better I can relax and box more. I am ready for Saturday night and I am happy to be headlining a great show.”
