Hardworking Promotions Presents Dedication

dedicationFREDERICK, March 16 – Hardwork Promotions presents an exciting night of professional boxing in Frederick, Maryland, on Saturday night, March 23, 2013. The boxing card, entitled, “Dedication,” will be held at the Frederick Fight Club, 244 S. Jefferson Street, Frederick, Maryland, 21701. The card will feature seven professional bouts, including the pro debut of former Olympian Ytalo Perea, touted prospect Dillon Hayman, as well as pro-debuts of two successful area amateurs, Eric Govan and Gerome Quigley. The first bout will begin at 7:00pm. Doors will open at 6:00pm.

Hardwork Promotions was formed by Venroy July, who works in Baltimore, Maryland, as both a professional cruiserweight boxer and an attorney. July recognizes the hardships endured by fighters and plans to use boxing as a means to have them empower their communities, and as such Hardwork Promotions plans to donate a portion of its profits from each show to a desigated nonprofit organizion. Consistent with this goal, a portion of the profits from “Dedication” will be donated to the Salute Military Golf Association “whose mission is to provide rehabilitative golf experiences and family-inclusive golf opportunities for post-9/11 wounded war veterans in an effort to improve the quality of life for these American heroes.”

The fighters to be featured on the card include:
Ytalo Perea, an accomplished amateur fighter, having represented Ecuador in the 2012 Olympics, and holds on his resume a win over U.S. heavyweight olympian, Dominic Breazeale. Perea will be making his pro debut on “Dedication,” and plans to start the quest to becoming the next great heavyweight.

Dillon “the Stalker” Hayman (Frederick, MD, Pro Record: 3-0-0, 2 KOs) is a local fan favorite who looks to continue his three fight win streak in front of his hometown fans. As an amateur boxer, Hayman won the 2011 Maryland Golden Gloves Champion (junior) at 152 lbs. He is currently a freshman at Montgomery Community College.

Devar “The Warrior” Ferhadi (Frederick, MD, Pro Record: 1-0, 1 KO) brings devastating power punching ability to the light heavyweight division. In his pro debut, Ferhadi stopped his opponent with a vicious body shot. Ferhadi competed for a spot on the Iraqi National Boxing Team.

Eric “Inferno” Govan (Laurel, MD, pro debut) makes his pro debut in the light heavyweight division. He has trained with some of boxing’s best, including local stars, former super middleweight champion, William Joppy, and former welterweight Champion, Paul ”The Punisher” Williams.
Gerome “GQ” Quigley (Baltimore, MD, pro debut) looks to make an impact in the welterweight division after taking a lengthy hiatus from the sport. As an amateur, Quigley amassed an impressive record of 68-5.

The weigh-ins and pre-fight press conference for “Dedication” will be held on Friday evening, March 22, 2013, beginning at 6:00pm, at Champion Billiards Sports Cafe, located at 5205 Buckeystown Pike, Frederick, Maryland, 21704.
