October 30, 2009 (San Juan, Puerto Rico). . . It’s “BACK TO BUSINESS” for future Hall of Fame fighter Winky Wright (51-5-1/25 KOs) as he takes on Grady “Bad Boy” Brewer (26-11-15KOs) in a middleweight main event of an exciting fight card which will take place on Friday December 11 at the Coliseo de Puerto Rico in San Juan, Puerto Rico and live on Pay-Per-View. The fight was officially announced this week at a press conference in San Juan, Puerto Rico.
San Juan City Knockout in conjunction with Winky Wright Promotions and Knockout Entertainment Inc. (www.KnockoutSeries.com), have announced their entry into the Puerto Rico sports scene as they stage their first joint promotion with “BACK TO BUSINESS.” Wright, who’s longstanding friendship with Puerto Rican legend Felix “Tito” Trinidad, who he got to know well after their May 2005 fight, thought the island was a perfect place for his return to the ring.
“Puerto Rico is great place to have this fight as it is seep in boxing history and tradition with the Puerto Rican people embracing the sport like very few places around the world,” said Wright, who is returning to the ring for the first time since his fight with Paul Williams at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas, Nevada this past April. “Tito and I have become great friends and each time I come to visit I have been ingratiated by the fans whom love and appreciate boxing so much. It will be an honor for me to fight in front of them on December 11.”
“I appreciate the opportunity to fight Winky Wright in a place where boxing has been followed and understood for so long,” said Brewer, who is held two Light Middleweight titles, was the winner of “The Contender” reality show season 2 and most impressively is on an eight-fight winning streak including his most recent domination of Albert Omolunese (KO 2) in Pala, California on August 22 of this year. “The fans might not know me like they know Winky but they will know me a lot better after I beat him that night.”
The event also marks the return of esteemed Puerto Rican champion, Alex “el Nene” Sanchez. El Nene held the WBO light flyweight Champion title in 2004. He is forward to a return to the ring and is excited about fighting in front of his hometown people again.
“Boxing is my life and I feel confident that I can get back to the top of my game with a win December 11,” said Sanchez “To fight one more time for my people on the same card as the great champion Winky Wright and to do it at the Coilseo is a blessing I will never forget.”
