World famous personality Danny Bonaduce will once again make his presence felt in the boxing world when he takes the microphone as the master of ceremonies for “Battle at the Boat 86” Saturday, March 31 at the Emerald Queen Casino in Tacoma, WA.
In addition to the March 31 show, Bonaduce will serve as the MC for all of the “Battle at the Boat” cards in 2012.
Bonaduce, who’s worn many hats during his 52 years on God’s Green Earth, initially gained fame during his childhood for playing the role of Danny Partridge on hit sitcom The Partridge Family.
He then became a popular radio personality, doing an overnight show on Philadelphia’s WEGX-FM en route to hosting the critically acclaimed Danny Bonaduce Show as of 1996. Never short of surprises, he had a segment where he brought professional fighters into his studio and literally sparred with them on the air.
In 2002, the always-visible Bonaduce entered the boxing world, knocking out Barry Williams in 2 rounds as part of the Celebrity Boxing series. He went on to fight additional bouts against various celebrities, compiling a 13-0 record against foes such as “Reverend” Bob Levy, Jose Canseco and Robert Shapiro.
Currently based in Seattle, Bonaduce’s show airs during the morning drive time KZOK 102.5 FM.
“We’ve been promoting a long time and this is really going to be one of the most exciting additions in the history of our company,” said Halquist Productions CEO Brian Halquist. “Danny is a great presence and will add a tremendous boost to our show.”
Headlining “Battle at the Boat 86” is an exciting lightweight showdown between Jose Hernandez and Peter Oluoch, which is supported by an undercard stacked with local talent.
Tickets are available on ticketmaster.com or by going to the EQC box office at 1-888-831-7655.
Doors open at 6 pm and the opening bell is scheduled for 7.
