Brooklyn, N.Y.: “This fight has the makings of an explosive fight.” – Marshall Kauffman, CEO of King’s Promotions

The highly anticipated fight between Kermit Cintron vs Tyrone Brunson is set to take place on Saturday June 24th, at the 230 Arena in Philadelphia. There’s a lot on the line for this fight for both men. Not only is the Pennsylvania State Junior Middleweight Title up for grabs in this fight. Each fighter possesses knockout power which will surely excite the fans in attendance; but for the loser of this bout, that fighter may be facing an early retirement from the sport that they each have given so much of themselves to.

Cintron (39-5-3, 30 KOs) the former two-time IBF World Champion comes into this fight with a wealth of experience, having faced some of the best fighters in recent time: former WBO Junior Middleweight Champion, WBO Welterweight Paul Williams; former WBC Middleweight World Champion Sergio Martinez; former Junior Middleweight and Lineal Middleweight World Champion Saul “Canelo” Alvarez; and former WBA and WBO Welterweight Champion Antonio Margarito (2x).

Cintron, of Reading Pennsylvania and of Puerto Rican descent will bring the pride of “Boricua” into the ring on fight night.

Brunson (24-6-2, 22 KOs) is an exciting fighter who has knocked out the first nineteen fighters he faced in the first round. Brunson, of Philadelphia, will once again fight in front of his hometown fans.

A heavy-handed puncher, Brunson is also a slick boxer who moves his feet well and tremendous hand speed. With his “Philly-Shell” defense he is not an easy target to hit. In fact, he’s great with counter-punching and is also a willing participant when it comes to throwing punches during exchanges. Often compared to the great Philadelphia fighter and former IBF Super-Lightweight, WBA Welterweight World Champion Meldrick Taylor, Brunson is a thinker inside the ring and once he hurts his opponent he goes in for the kill.

“This was already a tremendous event, and now even more is on the line with the addition of the state title bout. This fight has the makings of an explosive fight, with the winner being in line for a major opportunity,” said Marshall Kauffman, CEO of King’s Promotions.

The ten-round bout will headline a nine-bout fight-card at the 2300 Arena in Philadelphia and is promoted by King’s Promotions. The MAIN-EVENT BOUT will headline an eleven-bout fight card with some of the best fighters in the TRI-STATE and DMV area.
