For Immediate Release
LA Boxing Bethesda Continues to Host Top Professional Boxers
Bethesda, MD, September 21, 2011 – Washington DC-based LA Boxing DMV continues to play host to world-renowned professional boxers with top-ranked heavyweight Tony “The Tiger” Thompson as he prepares for his October 28, 2011 IBF Heavyweight Championship Elimination Bout versus Eddie Chambers. The elimination bout will be broadcast as a featured “special event” on Showtime’s ShoBox Television Series. Thompson will be training at the newest LA Boxing DMV location in Bethesda, MD.

LA Boxing DMV is also putting on an USA Boxing amateur boxing show October 8, 2011 at the Columbia MD location which will be featuring DC Boxing Hall of Famer Ring Announcer Henry “Discombobulating” Jones as the announcer for the event and Tony Thompson will be making a special guest appearance.

About Tony “The Tiger” Thompson: Promoted by Goossen Tutor Promotions, Thompson (36-2, 24 KOs), a 6-foot-6 inch, 250-pounder with an 81.5-inch reach, earned his nickname by virtue of his southpaw stance and reputation of being a vicious hitter with knockout power in both hands. Those qualities — combined with his intimidating size — contribute to Thompson’s dominance in the ring, which saw him go eight full years without a loss until his encounter with Klitschko, which most believe was Wladimir’s toughest defense since.
Thompson’s most recent bout was against Maurice Harris in Reno, Nevada in an IBF Heavyweight Title Elimination bout to claim an IBF #2 world rating. A determined Thompson made quick work of his opponent, knocking him down once in the second round, and ending the fight with another knockdown at 1:51 of the third round, earning the right to challenge the #1 IBF world rated contender, Eddie Chambers in a final World Championship Elimination bout.

On Friday, September 16, 2011, four fighters from the LA Boxing Arlington Fight Team, led by trainer Jerome Wilson, will be representing DC-Maryland-Virginia (DMV) at Combat at the Capitale 24. Presented by Louis Neglia and Ray Longo, Combat at the Capitale is a long running, kickboxing-only fight night series in New York City. The fight card will feature Muay Thai and Low-Kick fights (punches, kicks above the waist, and kicks to the legs are allowed).
Just a few months ago Katie Jaworski competed in #23 where she went toe-to-toe against Jennie Nedell (Team Fusion). Jaworski lost by decision, but she had a great fight against a Combat at the Capitale veteran. She is ready to return to New York City to see if she can claim a victory. This time, she will be joined by three other fighters. “The Rage” Clinso Brumfield, Mike Parker, and Stacy Sneeringer were on the original fight card, but due to a fractured rib, Sneeringer had to withdraw. Jennifer Yang will be taking her place and making her kickboxing fight debut.
Here is the match-up for their fights:
“Iron” Mike Fischetti (Team Tiger Schulmann) vs. Brumfield – This is the main event. Brumfield, International Kickboxing Federation (IKF) World Welterweight Champion 2008-2010, will face off against the current title holder, Fischetti, for the New York State Muay Thai Championship Title (170-175 pounds). While Brumfield is longer and leaner, Fischetti proved last time that a height difference makes no difference to his ability to knock out his opponent.
James “B-52” Smith (B52 Muay Thai) vs Mike Parker – This is one of two professional Muay Thai fights on the fight card. Smith made his professional debut at Combat at the Capitale several years ago, and he is the former World Kickboxing Association (WKA) Amateur Heavyweight Champion and WKA Heavyweight Kickboxing Champion. Parker will be making is professional debut at this event.
Andrea De Angelo (Neglia Comp Team) vs Jaworski – At the last Combat at the Capitale De Angelo beat Olga Khanukaeva (Borodin’s Gym) by unanimous decision. Rumor has it that De Angelo called out Jaworski during #23. De Angelo is a smaller fighter than Jaworski. While Jaworski will have to work to meet weight, she will have a height advantage over De Angelo. Since this match-up was already in the works from June, Jaworski has been working hard these past few months to improve her fight game.
Jennie Nedell (Team Fusion) vs Yang – Nedell beat Jaworski in June. Yang accepted the challenge to fight Nedell. But given the late notice, she will have a grueling three weeks of training ahead of her if she wants to hold her own against a fighter with over 30 fights and several titles. This will be a tough fight for Yang.
Combat at the Capitale 24 will be held at 130 Bowery, New York, NY. Doors open at 7PM, and fights start at 8PM. Tickets are: $100 VIP Ringside (row 1), $75 VIP Ringside (rows 2-4), $55 Ringside (rows 5-9), $35 General Admission (standing room). Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to get tickets. Fights will be videotaped live and posted online for “video on demand” immediately after the fight at www.mmasportsnet.com.

Chris Underwood has opened Oklahomaâ€™s first LA Boxing location at Regal Plaza. LA Boxing is a unique fitness center that specializes in boxing, kickboxing and mixed martial arts. It is open seven days a week and is available to all skill levels.
What makes LA Boxing unique is its method of getting people in shape. Essentially, participants work out using one of the sports offered. However, instead of fighting, the workout is done with a large punching bag. â€œWe have taken the combative sports and structured them into fitness programs,â€ says Underwood. â€œMost members have never boxed or done any type of martial arts before, and they gain these skills at LA Boxing. At LA Boxing, members are not just paying to go in and punch bags. â€œThey are actually getting a service from us. We are working them out. When they come in the class, they know they are going to get the best workout of their lives.â€ Classes are set up in a group setting similarly to a yoga or Pilates class, but here you get more one-on-one attention than is typical for group fitness classes.
All the instructors are professional fighters in their respective sports. Underwood adds, referring to the students, that the instructors â€œmotivate them, encourage them and also push them beyond their thresholds to where they improve. We have people here who have lost 100 pounds in six months. Itâ€™s crazy.â€ The average participant can burn up to 800 to 1500 calories in an hour depending on how hard he or she works out.
Classes include Boxing and Kick Boxing class, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and mixed martial arts. LA Boxing has youth classes available that are perfect after school activities. Sparing is available also for those who want to take themselves to the next level. The weight room upstairs has everything one would need for strength and conditioning workouts to supplement the classes. LA Boxing is the ultimate fitness center.
LA Boxing offers one free trial class to everyone. Memberships can be month-to-month or one or more years long. They even have a walk-in fee for those individuals who just want one workout. Underwood offers family programs, student, military and law enforcement discounts.
LA Boxing is available online at www.laboxing.com/tulsa and is on Twitter and Facebook.

Orange officials have allowed the owner of an LA Boxing Gym to display a statue of the Incredible Hulk that was originally deemed to have violated multiple zoning codes.
In June, gym owner Bryson Miller bought the 9-foot-tall, 80-pound statue made out of polyurethane foam from a company that made 240 â€œThe Incredible Hulkâ€ statues as decorations for theaters showing the 2008 movie, starring Edward Norton. Miller paid $7,000 for the statue, featuring the Hulk in boxing shorts and gloves and now with the LA Boxing logo, and put it on a trailer in the gym parking lot. Less than two days later, Miller said a code-enforcement officer made him remove the statue.
â€œThey said he didnâ€™t conform with any of the codes,â€ Miller said. â€œHe was too big, he was too wide and he was too green.â€
Miller said his father suggested taking his story to the press.
Less than a week after a story ran in The Orange County Register and on television, Miller said Mayor Carolyn Cavecche stopped by the gym to arrange a meeting between him and city officials.
â€œShe was making every point to get me in there,â€ Miller said. â€œShe was really cool.â€
City spokesman Paul Sitkoff said Miller fulfilled certain conditions to allow the statue to be displayed.
â€œThe Hulk has been placed on a trailer, moves around and is no longer permanently affixed outside the storefront,â€ Sitkoff said. â€œIt is supposed to be stored in back at night. As long as this is the case, it is no longer in violation.â€
Miller said his business has tripled in the three weeks the Hulk has stood outside his business.
â€œBefore I got him, I averaged 30 memberships a month,â€ Miller said. â€œLast month, I got 87.â€
Cavecche said she was trying to promote business in the city.
â€œI felt it was an issue for a local businessman who was trying to do well for the city of Orange,â€ Cavecche said. â€œIâ€™m thrilled that itâ€™s working out for him.â€
Note: LA Boxing did not receive a variance to display the statue – City officials said the gym owner simply brought the display standards to code.
