Douglas and Barnwell continue to rise

NUTLEY, NJ (August 28, 2013)—Last Friday night at the Turning Stone Casino Resort in Verona, New York, Middleweight Antoine Douglas and Heavyweight Dorsett Barnwell scored big wins to remain perfect on an ESPN’s Friday Night Fights televised card.


Douglas and Barnwell are promoted by Vito Mielnicki’s GH3 Promotions.


Douglas scored a six round unanimous decision over Edgar Perez while Branwell stopped veteran Marlon Hayes in three rounds.


Douglas of Burke, Virginia is now 9-0 with six knockouts and is coming along nicely.


“The fight went well and I am satisfied going six hard rounds with a durable opponent”, said the twenty year-old.


“Being able to go those rounds confirmed a lot of things for me”


Douglas will be fighting for the eighth time in 2013 when he appears at the Robert Treat Hotel in Newark, New Jersey on September 13th.


Barnwell of Norfolk, Virginia took out Hayes at 2:14 of round three to raise his record to 10-0 with 5 knockouts.


“Hayes did what we expected.  He tried to survive”, said Barnwell.


“It was a matter of time before I caught him.  He was elusive.  He fought Deontay Wilder and it took him four rounds where I got him out of there in three.”


Barnwell, 25 years old was fighting for the second time in 2013 and expects to be back in the ring in mid-September.


GH3 Promotions will be back with 2 shows:  September 13th at the Robert Treat Hotel in Newark, NJ and October 25th in Alexandria, VA.
