King's Promotions' Saturday Night at the Fights, to be held this Saturday evening September 9th in the Reading Eagle Theater at the Sovereign Center in Reading, PA, will include a special tribute to the two local Reading police officers killed recently in the line of duty. Honored will be Officer Scott A. Wertz, who was slain just over a month ago on August 6th, and Officer Michael H. Wise who was killed in June of 2004.
"In light of the recent tragic events in this city, my partner Jeff Nigrelli and I thought it was important to honor these fallen heroes", stated promoter Marshall Kauffman. "We have also donated some seventy tickets to the various area police departments so they could attend the fights this Saturday night. We want them to know that we appreciate the work they do in our communities and the risks they put themselves at", added Kauffman.
Plenty of tickets still remain for the seven bout fight card at the modern and spacious Sovereign Center. The exciting evening of boxing action will feature Reading's undefeated heavyweight prospect Travis Kauffman and Reading welterweight prospect Keenan Collins. Also appearing on the undercard will be exciting light heavyweight Jeremy Stauffer and light welterweight Jason Cintron, younger brother of welterweight contender Kermit Cintron.
