“Boxing at the Bob” is a follow-up to the highly praised “Champs at the Chase,” the first double-title event in Northern Delaware. The August 2nd boxing event will take place at the University of Delaware’s Bob Carpenter Center (click here to order tickets) and will feature six different bouts. Doors will open at 6:00pm with the first bell at 7:00pm.
The event will feature top-ranked boxing talent. Champs Management member George Beer explains, “One of our priorities has been to maintain the quality of each bout we promote and the integrity of our events as a whole. We’ve looked at some of the biggest fighters out there and believe that the fight card on August 2nd will be highly competitive and highly entertaining for fans.”
Headlining the event will be “The New” Ray Robinson and “Dangerous” Dorin Spivey. Spivey (42-6-0), NABA Lightweight Champion and currently ranked 9th in the world, will be defending his belt against Carlos “El Profeta” Cardenas (20-6-3). Cardenas is a Venezuelan native and has held both the WBC Continental Americas Super Featherweight Title and the WBC FECARBOX Super Featherweight Title. The winner of this bout will be ranked 2nd in the world by the WBA.
Robinson (15-2-0), a Philadelphia native and current NABA Welterweight Interim Champion, will be taking on Raymond “Emperor” Narh (26-2-0) as they battle for the USBA Welterweight Title and a Top 10 world ranking in the IBF. Narh is an accomplished Ghanaian professional boxer. He was a member of the 2000 Olympic Team and is the former WBC Light Welterweight Champion.
The undercard for the event is no less impressive, with NABA Light Heavyweight Interim Champion Frank “The Freight Train” Filippone and Delaware’s own Joey Tiberi and Omar Douglass.
