( Atlanta , Georgia ) May 1, 2009 Transformation begins from the upright structure of a species called man to the triggered mind trained to deliver pound for pound blows with the stamina of an unstoppable fighting machine known as a professional boxer. The ring will be set and ready for action May 8, 2009, at 8 p.m. as Silverback Entertainment returns in conjunction with the Sweet Auburn Festival to present The Bull-MENGOTTI, an evening of professional boxing at its best. This wholesome family event will be held at the Martin Luther King Jr. Recreation Center located at 90 Boulevard NE, Atlanta, GA 30312.
There will be seven professional bouts with an exciting main event delivered at the sound of the bell. The evening won't stop there as Silverback Entertainment turns up the heat with an explosive female bout delivering jabs, hooks, and the classic "one-two" combinations to be the last opponent standing. When we asked founders Fredrico Jones and Robert Allen why this fight is slated to be the best yet, they replied: "We are striving to showcase and match fighters who will have the audience on their feet until the end. The home team fighters representing the red corner are most eager to meet their opponents in hopes to deliver that K.O. win of the night. Their motivation reminds us of the eye of the tiger but the rage of a charging bull. Therefore, we can't wait to unveil them during the rise and fall of a Don referred to as The Bull-MENGOTTI."
