Return of The Jedi

Heavyweight Gerald Nobles returns to ring with impressive victory

LAS VEGAS (October 30, 2006) – Silverhawk Boxing’s power-punching heavyweight Gerald “The Jedi” Nobles, after being inactive for nearly two years, successfully returned to the ring last Thursday night stopping Wallace McDaniels with a vicious right uppercut 2:58 into the opening round at The Plex in Charleston, South Carolina.

Nobles, making his Silverhawk Boxing debut, improved his record to 25-1 with 20 knockouts. Once rated as high as No. 9 in the world, Nobles declared that he’s ready right now to take on any of the top heavyweights.

“I’ll fight anybody in the world,” Nobles said after the bout. “I don’t care who they are – (Calvin) Brock, (Samuel) Peter, (Wladimir) Klitschko, (Oleg) Maskaev. If any of them can go 12 rounds with me, I’ll give them the decision. Silverhawk Boxing and my manager, Jim Rider, have my back now. I’m ready.

“I hear there is a tournament down in Australia called Superfighter on December 1st. The best heavyweights in the world will compete. I am hoping for an opportunity to fight on that show so I can challenge and knockout these so called best in the world.”

“It’s funny,” Rider noted. “Nobody wanted anything to do with Gerald for two years. Now that he’s back in action with Silverhawk Boxing promoting him, other promoters and managers are coming out of the woodwork and trying to jump on his bandwagon. His weight is down and he looked very good last Thursday night. His punch is so powerful it makes a crack like nobody else’s punch.”

Former NABF heavyweight champion Robert “The Saint” Davis and light welterweight prospect Jaime “Superfly” Sandoval also were victorious in their Silverhawk Boxing debuts.

Davis (32-7, 20 KOs) floored Curtis Taylor three times en route to a third-round TKO, while Sandoval (12-1, 10 KOs) used his speed and quickness for a third round TKO of Donnell Logan.
