Sensational heavyweight prospect David Latoria has been added to the next 8 Count fight card, it was announced today by Dominic Pesoli, President of 8 Count Productions.
Set for Saturday, September 26 at Chicago’s UIC Pavilion, the bill is headlined by an outstanding lightweight bout between Chicago former world champions David Diaz and Jesus Chavez.
Said Pesoli, "Warriors Collide/Windy City Fight Night 6" is going to be a special night and we’re very happy to add David to the event. He’s fought on our last two cards and the fans were thrilled by his knockouts.”
After winning the 2009 Chicago Golden Gloves, Chicago based Latoria turned professional with a crushing first round knockout of Christopher Boykins on July 24 at the UIC Pavilion. He followed that up four weeks later with another first round knockout, this time stopping Ricardo Bradley on August 21, also at the UIC Pavilion.
“Boxing fans want to see action and Latoria has brought the heat both times out," said Pesoli.
"He’s stayed in the gym in between bouts and is in great shape to fight again on September 26th. At this point he’s the hottest prospect we’ve had in Chicago in a long time”.
Further details on Latoria’s bout will be announced shortly.
