MIAMI, FL (May 30, 2022)—Boxing promoter Don King continues to get ready for his Miami title fight card, “The Fight for Freedom and Peace” for the brave and courageous people of Ukraine on this Memorial Day.
“We have taken the time on this Memorial Day to thank those that have given their lives for our great country in our battle for freedom and peace,” said King. “This is a very important day to honor those men and women and their families with our thoughts and prayers. “I would also like to pass along my heartfelt condolences and prayers to those who lost their lives in Buffalo, NY in a racist massacre as well as to the 19 children and two teachers in Uvalde, TX. Our hearts and prayers go out to them and their families in this difficult time.”
King continues his fight for freedom and peace on Saturday, June 11 for the brave and courageous Ukranian people as he presents a night of title fights. The fight card will begin at 4 p.m. (doors open at 3:30 p.m.) and the main event featuring the WBA Heavyweight Championship as Trevor Bryan (22-0, 15 KOs) defends his title against the number one contender Daniel DuBois (17-1, 16KOs).
