“Bulldog Nation Athletics is blessed and excited to have this opportunity to showcase one of our very own BSU graduates, Greg Outlaw, as we partner with Real Deal Sports and Entertainment and Shabazz Brotherz Boxing to host a boxing showcase on the campus of Bowie State University.”, explains Clyde Doughty Jr., Director of Athletics at Bowie State University.

“This event will put on display a total team effort as BSU students, in the majors of sport management and communications, who will work with veteran professionals to gain hands on knowledge of sports production, management and promotion. We look forward to an exciting evening of boxing action with spirited and talented competitors. We are Bowie State University and this is our moment racing to excellence.”

Outlaw, who is already overwhelmed with ticket requests for the big night, couldn’t agree more.

“The response has been incredible. I expect an electrifying and sold out crowd full of fans supporting me and I won’t disappointment them. There won’t be an empty seat in the house and it’s going to be a special night in the history of Bowie State University.”

As Kevin O’Sullivan, The Real Deal Boxing’s VP of Operations and Development explains, “We’re always looking to think outside the box when it comes to our events and the sport of boxing in general. We feel the event at Bowie State University could lead to a series of boxing events at college campuses across the United States where students can work firsthand on all aspects of the production of a sporting event that takes places on their campus. With Outlaw being a graduate of Bowie State University and having a large fan base on campus, as well as the vision of the school’s tremendous Athletic Department, we knew it was the right place to start what we believe will become a popular and innovative series.”

“Shabazz Brotherz Boxing has created a platform for some of the most talented fighters in the Baltimore and Washington metropolitan area.”, adds Shabazz Bryant of Shabazz Brotherz Boxing.

“I am truly honored to be working with Real Deal Boxing and bringing that same type of talent to the card at Bowie State University on September 22nd. We look forward to this being the start of great partnership and series.”
