Heavyweights Harris-Aguilera Aug. 6
NEW YORK (July 22, 2010) – Boxing 360 has announced that heavyweights Maurice “Sugar Moe” Harris and Nagy “Dominican Dynamite” Aguilera will square-off August 6 in Minnesota.
“Both parties have signed contracts and it’s going to be a great fight between a talented veteran, Harris, and promising prospect, Aguilera,” Boxing 360 Director of Boxing Bob Duffy said today. “In many ways, it’s a crossroads fight for both heavyweights with a lot on the line, in terms of their respective boxing futures. We’re negotiating right now to make the August 6th fight for a regional title.”
Harris (23-14-2, 10), winner of the 2002 ‘Thunderbox Heavyweight Tournament,” is 3-0 since joining the Boxing 360 stable, after he was inactive for more than two years. The New Jersey fighter had only fought twice in previous six years, but he has rededicated himself for one last hurrah. During the course of his up-and-down career, Maurice has defeated former world champion Sergey Lyakhovich, who was 16-0 at the time, as well as notables David Izon, Jimmy Thunder and Jeremy Williams.
The 24-year-old Aguilera (16-3, 11 KOs), rated No. 15 by the IBF, knocked out former world champion Oleg Maskaev last December for his signature victory to date.
