  Brendon Simonds To Compete In Final Boxing Match On Thanksgiving Eve In Windham, NH

Boston Boxing Promotions has announced that Haverhill's Brendon Simonds (3-0, 3 KO) will compete in his farewell fight as part of the Thanksgiving Eve Boxing Spectacular scheduled for Wednesday, November 27, 2019 at The Castleton Banquet and Conference Center in Windham, New Hampshire. Simonds will take on New York's Ian Beatease in a four-round welterweight fight.

Simonds, age 40, ended over a decade of inactivity last year when he took a comeback fight against Vermont's Andre Belcarris and scored a second-round TKO victory. While that bout marked his comeback, Simonds insists the upcoming bout with Beatease will be his retirement fight.

"There's no better feeling than being in the squared circle, and I am thankful I got in a few more fights in my sporadic career before it's too late. However, after this I'll be focusing on my family and training fighters in the gym at the Haverhill Downtown Boxing Club. Hopefully, the commitment I'll make in this training camp will rub off on some of my fighters as they prepare for their fights," said Simonds.

In Ian Beatease, Simonds will be taking on a fighter six-years his junior but with more professional experience. After an impressive amateur career, Simonds has fought just three times over the course of 14 years as a professional due to commitments to his family, the United States Marines and now his regular job as a Correctional Officer at the Essex Country Sheriff's Department. This upcoming fight will be just a day removed from the 14-year anniversary of his pro debut in 2005.

"I know Ian Beatease is a tough kid and a pretty good guy. I saw him give Tolan Tascoe one hell of a competitive fight, and I know what I'm up against, so I'll make sure I put the work in in the gym so I get my hand raised at the end on fight night, said Simonds.

Beatease is ready to play the role of spoiler and will be training with Team Northeast Assassins to prepare for this bout.

"I have a lot of respect for Brendon," said Beatease. "However, at the end of the day I'm coming for the win. He has one foot out the door already, so I plan on sending him out properly. Prediction - I'm getting my hand raised with a second-round knockout!"
