One of the deadliest forms of cancer, the Colon Cancer Alliance‘s mission it to knock colon cancer out by championing prevention, funding cutting-edge research and providing quality patient support service. The Colon Cancer Alliance is a proud member of the National Health Council’s Standards of Excellence Certification Program.

“We’re committed to knocking out colon cancer,” said Allison Ornitz, Development Coordinator of the Colon Cancer Alliance. “The event with Baltimore Boxing is raising awareness and that gets us one step closer to fulfilling our mission. Colon cancer is largely preventable and when people get screened, we know lives are getting saved.”

Topping “Knock the Stuffing Out” is an exciting heavyweight battle between Baltimore Boxing’s Brian “Bam Bam” Haneschlager and Drew Ryan of West Virginia. Haneschlager is a heavy handed fighter with a large fan following in Maryland and Ryan is yet to lose, compiling a 7-0 record.

Baltimore Boxing’s Donald Wallace battles fellow Baltimorean Tyrell Boyd in the co-main event of the evening. Wallace, who continues to improve with every fight, lost a controversial decision to highly regarded Sharif Rahman last month at the Olympic Qualifiers in Philadelphia.

Multi time champion Joey “Bazooka Joe” Veazey, Courtney Hartlove, Allen Burris, Tommy Coe. Jr, Stefon McCray, Sean Veazy and Ernest Hall will each appear in separate undercard bouts.

More bouts will be announced shortly and Baltimore Boxing is also having canned food drive to make sure those unable to afford food will be able to enjoy their Thanksgiving. The food drive is being hosted by Merritt Park Baptist Church in Dundalk.

“It’s a pleasure to be back at Michael’s Eighth with some of our best talent,” said Jake Smith. “I’m proud to have the Colon Cancer Alliance working with us for this event and we’re going to help them raise funds and awareness on fight night. We’re really looking forward to putting on a great show for the community and sending them home happy for Thanksgiving.”
