BILOXI, MISS. (October 28, 2015) – Exciting Light Heavyweights Thomas “Top Dog” Williams (18-1, 12 KOs) and Humberto Savigne (12-2, 9 KOs) will meet in a 10-round clash to open up Premier Boxing Champions on Spike, Friday, November 13 from the Beau Rivage Resort & Casino on the Mississippi Gulf Coast, with televised coverage beginning at 9 p.m. ET.
The PBC on Spike main event pits Light Heavyweight contender Edwin “La Bomba” Rodriguez (27-1, 18 KOs) against undefeated Michael Seals (19-0, 14 KOs) in a 10-round affair.
“I feel completely rejuvenated heading into this fight,” said Williams. “I’ve been able to get back to the things I’ve done in camp since early in my career and I’m excited for November 13. I have seen my opponent and I’m planning on picking him apart. I will be victorious when I leave the ring.”
“I’m feeling one-hundred percent and have had a great training camp,” said Savigne. “I’m working hard and come November 13, it’s going to be a dominant Humberto Savigne. I don’t want to make any predictions, but I’m coming for the victory.”
Tickets for the event, which is promoted by DiBella Entertainment, are priced at $62.95, $48.95, $34.95 and $20.95, plus tax and service charges. Tickets are on sale now and can be purchased at the Beau Rivage Theatre box office, www.ticketmaster.com or by calling Ticketmaster at (800) 745-3000.
At 28-years-old, Williams is looking to take out another tough contender on his road to title contention. The Fort Washington, Maryland-born fighter owns victories over Enrique Ornela, Cornelius White and Yusaf Mack throughout his career. He most recently dominated Michael Gbenga on his way to earning a unanimous decision in December 2014.
Born in Cuba but fighting now out of Miami, Savigne won a gold medal at the 1999 Pan American Games and the 2000 Cuban National Championships. He has beaten Jeff Lacy, Maxell Taylor and previously unbeaten fighters Jackson Junior and Quinton Rankin since turning pro in 2009.
