May 25 Fight Night at the Horseshoe Heating Up!
Martin to Face Woods in Cruiserweight Slugfest

Hitz Boxing’s blockbuster Fight Night at the Hammond event, scheduled for May 25 at the Horseshoe Casino in Hammond, Indiana, just got even more exciting with the announcement of the co-featured bout.

31-year-old Chicago native and UFC, Strikeforce, Affliction and King of the Cage MMA star Terry Martin (5-0, 5 KOs) will roll the boxing dice and put his perfect undefeated record on the line against Atlanta, Georgia’s also undefeated Donta Woods (8-0, 7 KOs) in an explosive cruiserweight six-rounder.

The two power punchers will meet as the main supporting bout to the 10-round WBA Fedelatin Heavyweight Championship main event between “Fast” Fres Oquendo (33-7, 21 KOs) and Joey “Minnesota Ice” Abell (28-5, 27 KOs).

Martin holds Bachelor of Science degree, a Master’s Degree, and is working toward a PhD., and also frequently visits schools, churches and community centers to speak to young people about the value of staying in school. An impressive 22-9 in MMA, hammer-fisted Martin stands 5′ 8″ and packs power in both hands.

Woods enjoyed a long and successful amateur career, competing internationally and winning the 2005 Ringside National Championships, among many other distinctions.

He stands 6′ 2″ and has an especially impressive body attack.

“Someone’s 0 will go and probably by a knockout in this fight,” said event promoter, Bobby Hitz of Hitz Boxing. “When power punchers like these two meet up, it’s always a treat for the fans and we’re happy they have both agreed to fight.”

Also on the undercard:

Mike “Hollywood” Jimenez (6-0, 3 KOs) will go six rounds against Everett, Washington’s Adrian Hermann (3-3-1, 1 KO); undefeated power puncher David Martin III (5-0, 4 KOS) of Hobart, Indiana, will face Tim Washington (0-1) of Toledo, Ohio, in a heavyweight four-rounder; undefeated heavyweight David “Diesel” Latoria (10-0, 5 KOS) will go six against Gary, Indiana’s Stanley Allen (5-3, 3 KOs); nearby Chesterton, Indiana, heavyweight Philip Triantafillo (2-0, 1 KO) will fight a four-rounder against the more experienced Emerson Chasing Bear (4-3-2, 3 KOs) of Rapid City, South Dakota.

The opponent for light welterweight Genaro Mendez’s (4-1-1, 3 KOS) six-round fight is still TBA.

The high-class atmosphere and luxurious surroundings the Horseshoe has to offer make their boxing shows a Las Vegas-style night of boxing that Chicago-area fans don’t have to get on a plane to enjoy.

The Horseshoe Casino has an intimate, comfortable venue with luxurious seats, a spectacular gaming area, free parking, exquisite food and all the amenities — and is just 20 minutes from Downtown Chicago.
