Augusta, Ga--It's been a few years since we've had pro boxing in Augusta. That changes this weekend with a six fight card Saturday night at the Heal Complex.

Lando Sports Promotion is behind the event and it's been in the works for several months now. A host of local guys, including Divante Jones, will be on the card as they all hope to make a name for themselves. Fighting in their back yard is a big deal

"Really it's mandatory because people always ask me hey when are you going to fight again or when can I come see you fight and now they have the opportunity to come see me fight so I just want to make sure I put on a good show for those people" said Brandon Spencer

The first bout is scheduled for 7pm saturday at the Heal Complex as promoter Barry Smith is hoping this leads to bigger things down the line.
