On Saturday, October 15, L-Jack Promotions returns to the Aitken Centre at the University of New Brunswick’s Fredericton campus for another evening of world class professional boxing headlined by Brandon “L-Jack” Brewer (19-0-1, 10KOs) himself in a twelve round World Boxing Union (WBU) Intercontinental super welterweight clash against Anderson “Pantera” Clayton (44-10-2, 38KOs) of Sao Paulo, Brazil.
Clayton is the former World Boxing Federation (WBF) champion and a 56 fight veteran.
“Anderson Clayton looks like a very strong, experienced athlete,” said Brewer. “But I guarantee I’m stronger and more athletic. I am becoming more experienced. The only negative thing anyone ever could have said about me was that I lacked experience. Haters couldn’t even deny how strong, fast, and talented I was. They would simply say I’m not experienced enough and look down on me because I didn’t grow up in any of the big provinces or cities of boxing. But I’m experienced now, and I know the game extremely well, inside and outside of the ring. Anderson Clayton is my 20th win and nothing more.”
Fresh off his debut as a fighter-promoter at the Aitken Centre on May 14, Brewer is riding a wave of momentum after stopping Diego Adrian Marocchi (18-2-0, 13KOs) of Argentina via TKO3. The event was the largest boxing show hosted in New Brunswick in recent memory, proving that the Maritime province remains one of the fastest growing fight scenes in Canada, if not North America.
“I think the first event was a huge success,” explained Brewer. “I don’t think it will ever be duplicated. With that being said, we need to adjust to make sure each event from here on out evolves into just that, an event. The boxing is the centre of attention, but you didn’t need to be a boxing fan to enjoy yourself. You simply needed to be a fan of a good time. Overall I was extremely happy with the first one on pretty much all levels.”
Before Brewer takes the ring, however, a number of highly touted prospects will see action under the bright lights of the Aitken Centre. “L-Jack Promotion team has put together what I think is one of, if not the most, exciting card in Canada for 2016,” predicted Brewer. “With Chris Norrad’s return, Dillon Carman joining the card, Shakeel Phinn taking on Nathan Millier, possibly the hottest prospect in Canada with Dominic Babineau, and the debut of national team member Ryan Rozicki, this card will be a highlight reel from start to finish.”
The undercard will feature the following:

Shakeel Phinn (9-1-0, 5KOs) vs Nathan Millier (9-0-1, 7KOs)
Heavyweights – 10 Rounds
