SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 4, 2012
Atlantic City, NJ (Nov. 15, 2011) – Dee Lee Promotions LLC, in association with the Tropicana Casino and Resort announced today Super Brawl I, featuring Dorin Spivey (39-6-0/29 KO’s) of Portsmouth, VA and Victor Vasquez (14-5-1/7 KO’s) of Philadelphia, PA who will square-off in a 10-round brawl for the vacant NABA Lightweight Championship on Saturday, Feb. 4, 2012. Dorin has been chasing this belt in boxing rings across the United States for the majority of his 45 professional bouts and will finally get the opportunity to seize it in the Tropicana Showroom in Atlantic City, NJ. Vasquez is looking to stop Dorin in his tracks with ferocious and KO caliber left hooks and claim the title himself.
The co-main event of this exciting fight card features Philadelphia native and Atlantic City favorite, Chazz “The Gentleman Heavyweight” Witherspoon (28-2-0/20 KO’s). Witherspoon has been an active fighter and not only has the experience but an arsenal of skills he brings to the ring. He considers every fight another step to carving out his place in the heavyweight division.
The highlight of this electrifying undercard features a rematch from a 2011 Dee Lee fight card. Two of boxing’s scrappiest female fighters, Atlantic City’s Althea Saunders “Lady Thunder” (2-0-1) and Melissa St. Vil “Little Miss Tyson” of Brooklyn, NY (2-1-2) will settle a score when the meet. There is no love lost between these two in the ring and the highly anticipated rematch should prove to be a crowd favorite.
The remainder of the Super Brawl I undercard features Delaware native lightweight, Joey Tiberi
(5-1-0/4 KO’s) and an exciting trio of Virginia Beach tough guys who plan to make the Atlantic City Boardwalk, “Their Play Ground.” The trio of Virginians is led by middleweight, Frankie “The Freight Train” Filippone (8-2-0/2 KO’s) and includes heavyweight, Dorset Barnwell (5-0-0/3 KO’s).
