Warren Browning vs William Shahan for UBF US-Northeast & West Virginia Heavyweight title
PHILADELPHIA, PA (October 11, 2013)— Black Eye Promotions presents “King of the Coal Fields 9”, Friday, October 25, 2013 at the Madison Civic Center in Madison, West Virginia. In the main event, two natives of the mountain state step into the ring for the Universal Boxing Federation (UBF) US-Northeast and West Virginia heavyweight championship. WARREN “THE HITMAN” BROWNING(17-3-2, 12 KO’s) of Lenore, West Virginia clashes will WILLIAM “WILD BILL” SHAHAN (9-5, 8 KO’s) of Glenville, West Virginia in a scheduled 10 round bout.
Browning fought twice for the WBC United States (USNBC) title, once at cruiserweight and once at the heavyweight division. On July 13, 2013 Browning fought to a draw for the vacant West Virginia heavyweight title against three time state titlist BOBBY THOMAS JR. The fight was a back and forth match that not only impressed the fans in attendance but it also caught the eye of the UBF’S RICHARD SPILOTRO.
“I was very impressed with Browning’s last outing; the fight against Bobby Thomas was a great fight, as a fan I would love to watch the “Rubber Match” between the two, but Browning will face the hard puncher Bill Shahan and both fighters have something to prove, the UBF is humbled to have these two warriors face off for our regional title.” – Said Spilotro
Shahan is hoping that with the proper training and dedication, he will be able to derail Browning and hold up two heavyweight titles in victory. “Wild Bill” fought twice before for regional titles and came up short twice, both times against the then undefeated Justin Howes. Shahan is working towards his Master’s Degree in Administration and is currently employed as a Mathematics teacher at Braxton County Middle School.
He lives in Clarksburg along with his wife and they are expecting a baby girl in November. Shahan stated, “Not too many people get the opportunity to achieve their dream, but I am getting my third chance before my baby girl gets here.” He is the son of William and Barb Shahan.
Five professional bouts and nine amateur bouts will be presented as part of the event.
