Rite Hook Promotions returns to the Hard Rock Casino for an exciting night of action Saturday, February 13 in Biloxi, MS.
Dubbed as “Valentines Massacre” tickets for this ten bout card start at $20 and are on sale at Ticketmaster and the Hard Rock Casino box office. Fans are encouraged to purchase tickets in advance as Rite Hook’s May 2 show was standing room only.
Topping the card is a six round cruiserweight showdown between Biloxi’s very own Mike “Concrete” Bissett and Houston, TX’s “Rocking” Rodney Moore. A big draw locally, the 31 year old Bissett faced notables Steve Bujaj, Milos Plantelic and 2012 US Olympian Michael Hunter. In August 2014, Bissett scored a career best victory over contender Nick Ianuzzi. Known for having an iron chin, Moore’s been stopped just once in 29 fights while battling countless contenders including Randy Griffin, Richard Hall, George Khalid Jones, Quantis Graves, Andrey Fedosov and Murat Gassiev.
The co-featured bout of the evening marks the return of unbeaten middleweight Bobby “The Prodigy” Bryant of Mississippi in an eight round matchup with hardcore veteran Louis Leija. Fighting for the first time since 2012, Bryant’s 15-0 with 9 wins by knockout. A boxer since he was 9, Bryant was a standout amateur and has big expectations as a pro. Hailing from San Antonio, TX, Leija’s pro career started eight months before Bryant was born. Leija, 21-15-1 (15 KO’s), faced boxing legend Floyd Mayweather, former champions Jesus Chavez and Derrick Gainer as well as Ben Tackie, Emanuel Augustus and 2004 Olympic Silver Medalist Yudel Jhonson.
Rite Hook’s very own Manny “Shake Em’ Up” Woods, 13-4-1 (5 KO’s), travels from Tampa, FL to challenge 41 fight veteran Aaron Anderson of Tennessee in a six round junior middleweight contest. A winner in three of his last four, Woods hope to move onto bigger fights with a victory.
In separate undercard matches, unbeaten Joey Bryant of Memphis, TN, Justin Pauldo of Orlando, FL, Birmingham, AL’s Keandre Leatherwood and Atlanta, GA’s Justin Brunetti will all face opponents to be named.
“The fans are in for a real treat on the 13th,” said William Hunter of Rite Hook Promotions. “A lot of these fighters will be in TV bouts in the near future and tickets are very affordable. Last time, we had a standing room only crowd and everybody was asking about our next show. I look forward to showcasing great talent with this card and all of our future events.”
