Chazz Witherspoon returns July 12

On Saturday, July 12, Heavyweight contender, Chazz "The Gentleman" Witherspoon returns to the ring after a two-year absence when he takes part in an 8-round bout at the Riverwinds Community Center in West Deptford, New Jersey. 

 

Witherspoon (30-3, 22 KO's) of nearby Paulsboro, New Jersey established himself as one of the top American Heavyweights as the St. Joseph's University graduate won his first twenty-three bouts with wins over the likes of Michael Alexander (11-0), Talmadge Griffis (24-6-3), Jonathan Haggler (18-1) before suffering his 1st defeat to future two-time world title challenger Chris Arreola via controversial disqualification.

 

Witherspoon went on to win three win a row which was highlighted by an entertaining 8th round stoppage over Adam "The Swamp Donkey" Richards (21-1).  That fight was voted Ring Magazine's 2008 Heavyweight Fight of the Year.  Witherspoon then dropped a fight to future two-time world title challenger Tony Thompson.

 

"I feel good and rejuvenated after the layoff," said Witherspoon.

 

"I haven't been out this long because I wanted to.  I had several fights fall through, so I decided to start my own company and do my own shows and I can't wait until July 12 to put on a great event not far from where I live," said Witherspoon.

 

Witherspoon's opponent will be named shortly.
