The show entitled “The Shark City Showdown”, takes place at the Shark City Sports Bar and Grill (located at 2240 Bloomingdale Road in Glendale Heights, IL.) Headlining the card is Illinois State Heavyweight Champion Art “The Polish Warrior” Binkowski. Art returns to the ring after a 2nd round knockout victory in June.
Art is eager to showcase his skills once again to all of his loyal fans. Still undefeated, Art will be taking on another tough challenger in a scheduled 6 round heavyweight bout.
The western suburbs very own Tommy “Tomcat” Spinks will also make his return to the boxing scene after a two year layoff due to shoulder and back injuries.
The excitement doesn’t end there , in a heavyweight special attraction bout, Thomas Hayes (16-1, 11 KOs), protégé of former Mike Tyson trainer Kevin Rooney steps into the ring looking to extend his fourteen fight win streak.
Also on the show will be the always exciting and Crunch Fitness trainer Extraordinaire Chris Riley (2-1) and last but not least Joseph ”The African Assassin” Awinongya (11-8, 3 KOs) returns after suffering a disputed decision loss to undefeated Ed Gutierrez (15-0, 5 KO’s) as they battled for the vacant Illinois State Cruiserweight title just 2 weeks ago.
The night continues with a live appearance by AC/DC tribute band Dirty Deeds. The hottest AC/DC tribute band around, Dirty Deeds Indeed, was established in the summer of 1995 in Jyväskylä, Finland.
Because Dirty Deeds Indeed is a tribute to late AC/DC front man Bon Scott, all the material they play is from Scott-era albums: mix that with a little prizefighting and you have got yourself a night that is guaranteed not to disappoint.
