I podcast and write to cope with my continuing struggle to play guitar.
Fresh off a recent stint as a chief sparring in Adrien Broner’s training camp for his hometown fight against Adrian Granados in February, welterweight William “Action” Jackson returns to the ring to headline a June 24th card at Wyatt Arena – Cincinnati’s newest hub for live entertainment. A trio of exciting local prospects will join Jackson to round out a card of hard-hitting action.
CINCINNATI – The next potential wave of professional boxers in Cincinnati is steadily forming, and these new warriors continue to sharpen their skills while simultaneously learning to trust in boxing’s process. However, an important part of the process for every fighter is the presence of a capable promoter tirelessly working behind the scenes to provide the proper infrastructure for a realistic shot at a respectable career. Knowledgeable trainers and an adequate gym are essential too, but fighters need the means to showcase those skills they work hours honing in private.
The career for a talented young, eager fighter with an inexperienced team behind him/her could be over with in just a handful of fights. An undeserved bad blemish, or two, could make the road ahead look bleak for a young fighter. Wyatt Promotions, under the leadership of Cincinnati, Ohio’s Randall Wyatt, aims to avoid such pitfalls for both its roster of promising young prospects, as well as its group of nationally ranked amateur boxers. Regarding the proper infrastructure, the promoter recently completed extensive renovations of its existing space to launch Wyatt Arena, and on Saturday, June 24th the venue is scheduled to host its first professional boxing card.
After nearly three years of inactivity, veteran welterweight William “Action” Jackson will step back into the ring to entertain hometown fans, and display the skills he relied on to capture the vacant WBC United States (USNBC) Silver title in November 2013.
Joining Jackson in action on fight night will be welterweight Quashawn Toler (3-0, 3 KOs) and a pair of lightning quick super featherweights in Jayvon Garnett (5-0, 4 KOs) and Daniel Long (2-0, 1 KO).
Wyatt Arena is located at 9611 Hamilton Avenue in Cincinnati, Ohio 45231, and doors will open at 6:00 PM with the fights starting at 7:00 PM. Tickets are currently on sale at the Wyatt Promotions office located at 400 Reading Rd., Suite 102, Cincinnati, Ohio 45202. They will also be available for purchase at the door on fight night.
