“Ring Kings” Friday at Cypress Bayou Casino

For the second time, Live Professional Boxing will be held in Charenton at the Cypress Bayou Casino on Friday, June 28 with bell time set for 8 p.m. and doors opening at 7 p.m.

In the Main Event, Travis Scott of Baton Rouge will be fighting for the U.B.O. All-America Title against Larry Smith of the Dallas/Fort Worth area.

Scott is not only in the Main Event but he is in a TITLE FIGHT. Scott is a skilled veteran and can fight anyway his opponent wants to fight. Scott can adapt to any style and neutralize fighters, with his slick skill, hand speed and footwork. Scott is a dangerous fighter for anyone. Scott will be taking on Larry Smith. Scott stands in at 6’2 while Smith is 6’1. Scott will have his hands full with Smith, as he comes to win every time. This is going to be a great main event for the fans.

This card is the most well rounded, versatile card ever by Boxncar Promotions. Friday’s card will be spearheaded by intense action and great shots from the opening bell until the final bell.

Friday’s Live Professional Boxing is guaranteed to be one of the greatest nights of fights ever. Fans from near and far deserve a night of great fights and that’s what Friday’s Boxing Card promises to deliver _ an epic night of boxing.

Headlining Friday’s Live Boxing Night will be the epic battle of Thomas vs. Thomas.

Coming off the heels of a great night of fights last Saturday, Justin Thomas will follow up his sensational win by officially being added to the card. He will go to battle with game and tested Keyon Thomas, setting up the headliner of Thomas vs. Thomas, begging the question of how can we go wrong?

The much anticipated return of Emmanuel Augustus from Baton Rouge will be on the card. Augustus was named the ESPN fighter of the decade from 2000-2010. Augustus has fought everyone, from Floyd Mayweather to Mickey Ward to Ruslan Provodnikov and the list goes on and on.

Augustus will do battle with Starr Johnson, who is coming off two straight knockout victories. Johnson, who has been sparring with Shane Mosley and Regis Prograis, says he is coming in to get the win. Johnson claims this win will get him a big money fight and he just can’t stand the wait.

“Rock Hard Mighty” Mason Menard will take on newly named boxer DeShaun Williams on Friday’s card. Menard was supposed to be in a World Title Fight against David Torres who was forced to pull out after suffering a rib injury.

Menard had a contract signed from David Torres (21-3 with 13 knockouts) along with blood work setting up a terrific match before Torres sends a doctor’s excuse stating he can’t fight due to a fractured rib 15 days until fight time.

So after looking for a replacement on two weeks notice, Williams signed to battle the highly-regarded Menard on Friday’s card. Williams enters Friday’s matchup against Menard after beating Rashad Ganaway (11-2), a highly touted prospect.

The Williams versus Menard battle should prove to be one that leaves fight fans screaming for more and more.

Heavyweight Danny Batchelder (26-9 with 13 KOs) of New York will also be on the card eyeing a battle with Rodney Moore (17-7 with 7 KOs).

Moore has never been down, never been TKOed, he has gone the distance with some great heavyweights. Batchelder has not heard the final bell on a couple occasions. This will be the most relevant, real heavyweight fight the state of Louisiana has ever seen. The memory of Batchelder’s first round demolition of his opponent back in April should still be fresh in the minds of area and local boxing fans.

In the Main Event, Scott is not only in the main event, but he is fighting for the U.B.O. All-America Title Scott is the skilled veteran who can fight anyway his opponent wants to fight. Scott, who is a dangerous fighter for anyone, will battle Smith in the Main Event.

Everyone is invited to come out and watch these fighters attempt to continue their climb to the top.

Tickets can be purchased through Chad Broussard, Mason Menard, Travis Scott, Justin Thomas, Ticketmaster or call the casino at 337-923-7284.

Do not miss this night of fights. Come and become a BIG boxing fan.
