Thurman Added To Ballroom Brawl Card

By Damon Gonzalez

Tampa, FL: One Punch Productions and Fight Factory Promotions are pleased to announce that undefeated welterweight prospect Keith "One Time" Thurman has been added to the November 6th Ballroom Brawl in Tampa, FL. Thurman (10-0, 10 KO's) resides in St. Petersburg and is trained by legendary trainer Dan Birmingham.

"Dan and Shelly Finkel (Finkel manages Thurman) worked really hard to make this happen, and without their efforts this wouldn't have been possible" said One Punch Productions CEO Terry J. Trekas. "When Lenroy Thomas unfortunately had to be removed from the show, we knew we needed something explosive to take his place. What's more explosive than a 10-0 guy with 10 knockouts, with 8 of those knockouts coming in the first round?. It doesn't get much more explosive than that" added Trekas.

Also added to the card is Tampa cruiserweight Nick "The Showstopper" Iannuzzi (12-1, 7 KO's). Iannuzzi is coming off a shocking TKO loss to Harvey Jolly that occurred on Sept 19. "I was thinking that Nick would probably take the rest of the year off after the Jolly fight, but he made it clear to me that what happened in September was a fluke, and that he wanted to fight on this card to show everyone what he is really made of" commented Trekas.

The Ballroom Brawl! undercard features the best and brightest up and coming talent in the region. St. Petersburg jr. middleweight Manny Woods (1-0), jr. lightweight Cordaro Simpkins (2-0), Tampa heavyweight Lamar Davis (3-1), undefeated Ft. Myers brothers Quinton Willis (4-0) and Marcus Willis (3-0), as well as Tampa welterweight Ray Cepeda (1-0) will all see action on that last fight card in the Tampa Bay area for 2009.

The event takes place at the beautiful downtown Tampa Hyatt Regency on Friday November 6. Doors open at 7pm, and the action starts at 7:30pm.
