ALLENTOWN RUMBLE FEB. 27th — TICKETS NOW ON SALE
King’s Promotions returns to the Allentown area on Saturday February 27th where they will host an exciting professional and amateur boxing card at the Rodeway Inn & Conference Center at Routes 22 & 309 in Allentown. The event will consist of five professional fights featuring regional fan favorites, as well as five amateur fights featuring the Allentown Boxing Club vs Reading’s King’s Gym.
The professional fights will feature Reading’s Jason Cintron vs Maurice Chalmers. Cintron (11-1), the brother of former welterweight champ Kermit Cintron, is coming off a unanimous decision victory over Martinus Clay at Reading’s Sovereign Center in December. Chalmers (7-9-1) of Lynchburg, VA has faced the likes of Andre Berto and James Kirkland. Also featured will be rising heavyweight prospect Travis Kauffman (18-1) of Reading vs Bernard “Bad Ass” Brown (6-5-2) of Baltimore, MD. Kauffman is looking to rebound from a controversial loss against Tony Grano broadcast on Shobox: The Next Generation. Kauffman was recently featured as one of boxing’s “new faces” in the December issue of Ring magazine. Also, Reading’s Keenan Collins (12-5-2) will face Allentown’s Jorge Delgado (4-8) and Eliud Torres (2-1-2) of Allentown will face Hawaiian native Van Oscar Penovaroff (4-0-1), who currently resides in Reading. Julio Cesar Matthews (9-0) is also scheduled to fight an opponent to be determined. Matthews, a former resident of Allentown who currently resides in Reading, is riding a nine fight winning streak. Bragging rights will be at stake in the amateur portion of the night when fighters from the Allentown Boxing Club challenge their counterparts from Reading’s King’s Gym.
