Main Event NABF Jr. Flyweight Title Saleto Henderson v. Jesus Soler and Co-Main Event GBC Super Middleweight World Title Keon Johnson v. Les Sherrington
INDIANAPOLIS, IN, UNITED STATES, December 14, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Today, December 14, Chin Chek Promotions brings "Season's Beatings" championship boxing on Pay-Per-View on FITE.TV and live from the Tyndall Armory in downtown Indianapolis, Indiana. The event features two championship fights and one fight for the history book. The show is headlined by Indy's Unbeaten Saleto "Mr. Personal" Henderson battling Puerto Rico's Jesus Soler for the NABF Jr. Flyweight Title. Twenty-year-old Henderson (6-0), ranked No. 14 in the USA, and 30-year-old Soler (11-1-1), currently ranked No. 11, are vying for the vacant NABF Jr. Flyweight Title.
"Saleto made the weight and is ready to claim the championship belt for his hometown of Indianapolis," said Dominic Brogan of Chin Chek Promotions. "The vacant WBC title is in his sights for 2020."
The title fight between Henderson and Soler will be the first time that a fight of this magnitude will be brought to the city of Indianapolis. “I had to endure a lot of death and boxing calmed me down and gave me the discipline I needed. I used to fight in school and now I am fighting for a cause and my dream,” said Henderson.
"Adding to the excitement of two championship fights is Selma, Indiana's fighter Al Hughes, Jr., at 70 years old, who is fighting with a purpose and as a tribute to his late son," said Brogan. "We are bringing 11 undercard fights that are sure to be exciting."
Selma/Muncie, Indiana's Al Hughes v. Indy's Tramane Towns for a 4-round bout. Hughes intends to make history as the oldest active fighter in the world to be documented in the Guinness Book of Records. “I'm taking my son into the ring by wearing his mouthpiece, protective cup and carrying him in my heart,” Hughes said. “It’s not about me or any fame or fortune or glory or any pat on the back. I’m doing this to honor my son.”
Al Hughes, Jr., battled drug addiction and died of apparent suicide in April 2019, a few days before his dad's birthday. A portion of the proceeds from Hughes fight will be donated to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.
Don't miss the main and co-main championship boxing and several Chin Chek jaw dropping fights, from start to finish there will be plenty of boxing action to experience. General AdmIssion Tickets start at just $30.
