Peltz Boxing: Kennedy vs. Becerra September 25 In Atlantic City

Undefeated Teon Kennedy and battle-tested Alex Becerra meet for the vacant NABA super bantamweight title on Saturday evening, Sept. 25, in the Grand Ballroom at Bally’s Atlantic City.

The scheduled 12-round championship fight tops a seven-bout card which begins at 7.30 p.m. The card will be televised by www.gofightlive.tv.

Kennedy, 24, of Philadelphia, PA, is ranked No. 8 in the world at 122 pounds by the IBF.

A former National Golden Gloves flyweight champion, Kennedy has beaten Thomas Snow, Andre Wilson, Lucian Gonzalez, Francisco Rodriguez and Jose Angel Beranza en route to a 15-0-1 record, 6 K0s.

Kennedy’s 10th-round knockout last year over Rodriguez netted him the vacant USBA super bantamweight title and he successfully defended that crown with a 12-round decision over Beranza in his last fight May 22 at Bally’s.

The Kennedy-Rodriguez fight earned the coveted Briscoe Award as Philadelphia’s 2009 Fight of the Year. Becerra, 29, of El Paso, TX, is 20-8, 9 K0s.

A former NABA super flyweight champion, Becerra ended a 15-month layoff Aug. 6 by scoring a six-round decision over Francisco Dominguez in El Paso.

The only foe common to both men is Francisco Rodriguez, who beat Becerra via 10-round decision in 2008 in Chicago.

Tickets priced at $50 and $75 are on sale at the offices of Peltz Boxing Promotions (215-765-0922) and also can be purchased online at www.peltzboxing.com.
