Knockout heavyweight Detroit sensation Juan “Goodnight” Goode, (5 wins, 0 Losses, 0 Draws, 5 KO) earmarked to become the next heavyweight champion of the world, will co-headline “The Showdown in Motown” boxing event on Friday, November 15, 2013 at the Masonic Temple in Detroit.
Lindy Lindell from Fightnews.com recently reported that “Goode was the hardest punching heavyweight he had seen in 35 years in Detroit, perhaps the hardest-punching Motown heavyweight since Joe Louis.” Nasser Beydoun, CEO of Darkside Boxing the show’s promoter, said, “Juan is going to be the next undisputed heavyweight champion of the world. The division will be restored. Boxing needs a heavyweight sensation, and with his impressive five first round knockouts, Goode is that sensation.”
Co-headlining the ten-bout card is Lane “The Pain” Staal (11 wins, 0 Losses, 1 Draws, 5 KO), who has sent shockwaves through the middleweight division after laying out 11 of his past opponents, and returns to the ring in a possible title fight.
The card in includes welterweight WBC America champion Lenardo Tyner (30 wins, 8 Losses, 2 Draws, 19 KO), making his comeback debut under the Darkside Boxing banner. Ahmed Mahmoud, from Amman Jordan, makes his second professional debut as bantamweight.
This is the first show for Darkside Boxing in Detroit and the promoter is planning six events in Detroit in 2014, culminating in a nationally televised title match at Joe Lewis in December 2014. This event is sponsored by Greektown Casino.
