Presented by Joe DeGuardia’s Star Boxing, the Tahdooahnippah/King ten round clash headlines “Comanche Nation’s Friday Night Fights”, a six bout evening of world class professional boxing which will be broadcast LIVE on the internet at GO FIGHT LIVE (www.GFL.tv).
Said DeGuardia, “We’re very excited to work with the team at the Comanche Nation Casino in this title bout for George. We’ve got big plans for his future and are excited to show fight fans in Lawton as well as those watching online across the country how truly exciting he is.”
Speaking about the fight, Tahdooahnippah stated, “This is a very big fight for me, my first for Star Boxing and I’m very happy that it will be broadcast LIVE on GO FIGHTLIVE so that Native Americans and fight fans across the country can see me fight.”
“King is an ex-college football player, very strong and a southpaw. He’s obviously looking to make his name off my undefeated record, but I’ve prepared very well. We’ve had a great camp and excellent southpaw sparring.”
