In a twist of fate and opponent fall outs, long time rivals and former sparring partners Harding and George will get their chance to finish what was started years back in some heated, trash talking sparring sessions that can only be described as skirting real close to bedlam. We can expect more of the same on December 6, making this match up even more exciting and one not to miss!
Harding, looks to be the toughest test of George's young career having defeated Antonio Tarver, Daniel Judah, and Montell Griffin. Harding is also noted for giving former world champions Roy Jones Jr. and Glen Johnson difficult fights before falling short. In Harding's last fight, he knocked down WBC Light Heavyweight champion Chad Dawson in the first round en route to a close decision loss.
George was originally preparing to fight Glen Johnson on November 3 when Johnson's opponent Anthony Hanshaw pulled out of their match. George was proposed to replace Hanshaw and was ready to step in on short notice. Johnson's promoter accepted the fight, only to have Johnson turn down the challenge.
"We are happy to be working with Hall of Fame Promotions on this event. This is an important matchup in the Light Heavyweight division and the winner may well be in line for a shot at the world title." said Star Boxing's Joe DeGuardia.
