Due to an inability to secure a ring doctor to work the July 11 fights at Roberts Off Ten in Mounds View, promoter Tony Grygelko has announced that the event is being changed from a professional boxing card with two fights and an exhibition, to a series of six public sparring sessions featuring the following boxers:
- Willshuan Boxley –vs- Ismail Muwendo
- Jeremy McLaurin –vs- Ronnie Peterson
- Jon Schmidt –vs- Charles Meier
- Caleb Truax –vs- Mohammed Kayongo
- Joey Abell –vs- Jim Maurine
- Tony Grygelko –vs- Michael Faulk
Of his own matchup with new pro Michael Faulk, Grygelko says, “Mike’s one of only two guys that beat me twice in my boxing career…I just want to prove to the world that he can’t really handle the pressure and power that a fighter like myself brings!” Grygelko compiled a record of 5-2 (3 kayos) as a pro fighter, his last fight a first-round knockout loss at the hands of undefeated prospect Henry Crawford in November 2005.
The Fistic Mystic says: This should be an interesting spectacle. If I were going to be in town I wouldn’t miss it!
