Horton’s Gym Promotions presents a six or seven-bout card at Grandma’s Sports Garden in Duluth on Thursday, May 21st.
What to watch for: Unbeaten junior welter Gary Eyer rematches Scott Robinson. In their first match, on March 28, Eyer was the faster and stronger man en route to a TKO win when referee Mark Nelson stopped the fight after two knockdowns in the first round. Robinson, however, felt that the fight had been stopped prematurely – and he promises a different outcome when the two meet again. “The Prodigy” Dave Peterson attempts to resurrect a dormant boxing career when he faces tough but unrefined Iowan Joshua Rodriguez in a 6-round light middlweight bout. Well regarded welterweight RJ Laase tries to run his record to 5-0 against Hector Orozco. Two talented amateurs make their pro debuts as Jorey Olson and Anthony Wallace mix it up in the cruiserweight division. Heavyweights Hyacinthus Turnipseed and Enobong Umohette face each other as each vies for his first professional win. And in an odd twist, Lakendriedk Craig is listed on Boxrec as the opponent for both Tyler Hultin (pro debut) and perpetually hopeful Andson Griggs. Unless this is a three-way battle, one of the two opponents will have to either face someone else, or bow out of the show. Promoter Chuck Horton could not be reached for a clarification.
