For Immediate Release
Hollywood Fight Night Ends 2012 With “Season’s Beatings” December 21st Pendarvis vs. Clark Clash for USBA Light Welterweight Title in Main Event
Art of Boxing Promotions in association with Bash Boxing, Inc. and Pitbull Boxing Promotions will return to World Famous Hollywood, California for a special holiday boxing show on Friday, December 21, 2012. HOLLYWOOD FIGHT NIGHT: Season's Beatings will be the 3rd show at the Legendary Florentine Gardens in Hollywood in just five months.
In the 12 round Main Event, Pitbull Boxing's Cleotis "Mookie" Pendarvis (15-3-2, 5 KOs) will defend his USBA Light Welterweight Title against mandatory challenger, Michael "Cold Blood" Clark (43-7-1, 18 KOs). Pendarvis, the much lauded local prospect who has been a regular sparring partner for future Hall of Famers Manny Pacquaio, Shane Mosley, Antonio Margarito, and Ricky Hatton, stepped out of the shadows in his last bout by capturing the USBA Light Welterweight Championship against Robert Frenkel (31-12-1, 6 KOs). Clark, a veteran of the Contender TV show and former World Title challenger, earned the right to become mandatory challenger for Pendarvis' USBA title with an upset of previously undefeated Jake Giuriceo (16-0-1) in his last bout.
Two well-matched 6 round bouts highlight the HOLLYWOOD FIGHT NIGHT: Season's Beatings undercard as undefeated Russian/Ukrainian super middleweight import Marat Kulumbegov (8-0-1, 5KOs) takes on tough-as-nails veteran Billy Bailey (12-15, 4KOs) and Robert Garcia trained prospect Erik Ruiz (6-0, 3 KOs) faces perennial southpaw spoiler Shawn "Bones" Nichol (7-12, 5 KOs) in a super bantamweight bout. Ruiz and Nichol have been on a collision course with both pugilists appearing on previous Art of Boxing/Bash Boxing shows in the past. Nichol legitimized his desire to give Ruiz his first loss with an upset of previously undefeated Ricardo Contreras (9-0-1) in his last bout.
HOLLYWOOD FIGHT NIGHT: Season's Beatings will also feature the returns of Welterweight knockout specialist Terrell "Tyger" Williams (8-0, 7KOs), former World Series of Boxing Cruiserweight Vyacheslav Shabranskyy (1-0. 1 KO), Wildcard Boxing Club's David "Thunder" Clark (5-2, 4KOs), and Paulie Malignaggi protégé, Dinmukhamed "Dimash" Niyazov (2-0, 1KO). Finally, making his much anticipated Hollywood Fight Night debut will be undefeated East L.A. Light Welterweight Fabian "Lil Rocky" Ocegueda (7-0, 5KOs).
