Boxing Returns to Batesville!
- Published on Thursday, September 27, 2012
Bad Boy Boxing returns to the Armory on Saturday September 29th, and will feature local talent, new faces, rematches, and much more. Some of the best fights in Batesville were on our show last December and we are expecting even more fireworks on September 29th. One of if not the most intriguing bouts on the card will be when world rated 115 lb female fighter Kristen Treadway from here in Batesville rematchesSavanna Hill of Russelville, Ar. In January of this year Kristen defeated Savanna via six round unanimous decision in front of a sold out crowd at the Fitzgerald Casino in Tunica, Ms. In May of this year Team Treadway was preparing for a June bout (which was cancelled) and was looking for sparring and invited Savanna Hill in as a sparring partner, but was turned down due to the fact that Savanna and trainer / husband Brad Hill were eyeing the possibility of a rematch with Kristen. As the story goes sometimes you get what you ask for as is the case in this instance as these two ladies are ready for an all out war again. This fight is sure to be a good one, but I am not so sure that some of our guys on the card are going to let these ladies be the stars of the show either. As we have the most improved fighter in the mid-south Josh Williams who has never been in a boring fight and always makes it interesting due to the fact that he will take a few punches to land his own shots, also we have the return of lightweight fighter James Frazier, an interesting match between slick debut boxer Cody Williams from Sheridan, Ar and battle tested Joey Crawford from Imboden, Ar, and many more exciting fights to be made in the coming weeks. For ticket info for this event you may call (870)613-4585, and doors for the event are scheduled to open at 7:30 p.m. at the National Guard Armory on 1690 White Drive.
