Professional Boxing Returns To Acadiana
Boxing is truly one of the world’s international sports.
From the United States to Russia to Australia and everywhere
in between you will hear of aspiring professional boxers
climbing the ranks to achieve super-stardom. Some income
that can be earned due to PPV can generate millions of
dollars for the few who excel. It’s a fierce and highly
competitive sport that cuts the ties of friendships in some
cases. Promoters and managers get together with matchmakers
to have the best boxers compete with the best. As the old
saying goes, “You can play basketball, baseball, and
football but you can’t play boxing.” It’s one on one and
goes on until one is deemed unconscious or beaten on points
in rounds from 4 to 12. The young upstarts cannot become the
superstars of tomorrow without the hard working promoters
who put on shows without television money or large
One of those promoters is Chad Broussard of Lafayette,
Louisiana, a former professional boxer with a retired
impressive record of 56-5 with 40 big knockouts. He
understands where a young amateur just turning professional
needs to get his or her internship and it’s in these ‘dark
shows’ which is what we call non-tv fight shows.
His company, BOXNCAR PROMOTIONS, is scheduling a boxing show
in the Youngsville Sports Complex in Youngsville, Louisiana
on August 21st (2021) and plans to bring some of the top
young talent to gauge their talents against each other.
Without promoters like BOXNCAR boxing could not survive and
these young talents would not have a place to perform and
learn their craft to excel to greater heights.
Lousiana talents from the past like CHAD BROUSSARD, ROMAN
GEORGE, SHELTON LEBLANC, DARRYL SAVOY, MELVIN PAUL, BRANDON
SOLOMAN, BLAKE PREVOST, JASON PAPILLION among others were
seen on national television in the past and today’s talents
are looking for the same.
Today has world champions like the Charlo Brothers (Jermell
and Jermall) from Lafayette, Louisiana now training in Texas
and Regis Prograis from New Orleans (now training in Texas).
Prograis won his first world title in April 2019 at the
Lafayette CajunDome in the WORLD BOXING SUPER SERIES
internationally televised by DAZN where he picked up his
first major payday. Prograis was one who fought on a BOXNCAR
PROMOTIONS show on his way up.
Heading the card will be two undefeated prospects putting
their records on the line for supremacy that fans in the
boxing circles are curious to see. Gerald Evans from
Atlanta, Georgia who is 2-0 has a win over the accomplished
Brandon Arvie from Lafayette, La who was the favored fighter
over Evans. Evans was fighting his pro debut. Evans is a
non-stop puncher who outworks his opponents with relentless
pressure. His rival coming from south Texas on the Mexico
border is 3-0 Cristian “Slick” Roman who is thirsting for
his USA debut. All three of Roman’s fights have been in
Mexico. They will compete in a 6 round match. Experts
predict more punches will be thrown in this 6 round match
than many will see in 12 round fights.
Cristian “Slick” Roman, a promising southpaw , brings in a
Evans comments were simple and solid. “I am going to put so
much pressure on Roman that he will have no place to go in
the ring and I will take away his ‘SLICK’ nickname and make
him fight my fight,” states Evans who guarantees fireworks.
Roman countered with a smile, “I have one thing on my mind
and that is to get to a Devin Haney match in the future.
It’s personal and Gerald Evans is in my way. If it is a war
he wants he will learn what ‘SLICK’ really means when that
This 6 round fight is destined to be a barn-burner and top
prospects at lightweight will be waiting for the results
from across the USA.
Other talents competing are Keon Papillion, Gentry Foreman,
Nicholas Perez, Clay Burns, Josh Ross, Burnell Jenkins,
Michael Land, Wayne Boudreaux, Demontrez Holliman, Rance
Ward and Jamykle Wade PLUS MORE in a star studded show.
Promoter Chad Broussard states, “Trust me when I say this!
This show is stacked, packed and filled with sensational
fights. Step out this night for a night filled with fun and
action, with fans anxious for a electrifying night of evenly
