Jake Smith’s Baltimore Boxing Promotions returns for “Hard Knock Life” August 31!
Baltimore, MD (August 1, 2013) – Jake “The Snake” Smith’s Baltimore Boxing Promotions enters the William Meyers Pavilion in Baltimore for the first time when they present “Hard Knock Life” Saturday, August 31.
Bleacher tickets starting at $15 are available by calling 410-375-9175. In addition, floor seats are $35, individual VIP seats are available for $50, VIP mini tables of 4 at $200, reserved tables of 10 for $350 and first row VIP tables priced at $500 are currently on sale.
All VIP ticketholders can enjoy free hors d’oeurves and half price drinks from 7-8:15.
With approximately ten Olympic style bouts scheduled, “Hard Knock Life” is an action packed card featuring the best talent in the beltway region. “Hard Knock Life” also serves as an honorary card for Jake’s father Murray Smith Sr. On July 12, Murray passed away following a lengthy battle with cancer. To honor Murray, who supported his son’s career as a boxer, trainer and now promoter,Jake’s holding a 50/50 raffle along with a silent auction. All proceeds are going towards the Baltimore Boxing amateur program, a non-profit which rescued many local youths from the tough Charm City streets and helped develop them into boxers.
“August 31 is going to be a bittersweet evening for me,” stated Smith, a member of the DC and Maryland boxing hall of fames. “My father did so much not only to support the many aspects of boxing I’ve been involved in but with all of the community. He was a regular at the gym, came to all of the fights and backed a lot of non-boxing events. It’s going to be weird without him in the crowd but I’m happy to honor him exactly how he deserves.”
Highlighting the card will be separate bouts featuring multi-time National Champion Joey “Bazooka Joe” Veazey 2013 Golden Gloves Champion Jerome Featherstone Jr. and heavyweight Sam Crossed.
Opponents for Featherstone Jr., Crossed and Veazy along with additional bouts will be announced shortly.
Doors for “Hard Knock Life” open at 6:15 pm and the opening bell is scheduled for 8:15. All bouts are scheduled by USA Boxing.
