Atlanta– Real Deal Boxing and legendary boxer Evander Holyfield announce a Hall of Fame Tribute and Birthday Celebration in Atlanta on October 19 at The Georgia Freight Depot. The tribute will include a birthday celebration for Holyfield, a preview of a planned statue, championship boxing and a silent auction.

Tickets priced at $150, $100 and $60 can be purchased in advance at VIP Tables for $2500 and $1500 are also available for purchase. Doors at the Freight Depot open at 6 p.m. with the first bell at 7:00 p.m.

“The city of Atlanta is near-and-dear to my heart and I’m blessed that Real Deal Championship Boxing is coming to where I call home. I’m grateful to those who have extended themselves to plan and incorporate my birthday festivities, and I am excited to showcase the new generation of fighters we have signed on this show,” Holyfield says. The retired boxer was named to the International Boxing Hall of Fame this summer.

“We have a phenomenal card planned and we’re fortunate to be able to offer virtually two events worth of bouts on one card. The Real Deal Boxing is looking to play an integral role in the Georgia boxing scene and what better place to start then the home of a legend,” says Real Deal Sports and Entertainment COO Eric Bentley. The event is hosted by retired professional boxer and Atlanta attorney Preston Haliburton. “My intention is to create a jazz era-themed boxing event to underscore Georgia’s gentility and boxing culture,” Haliburton says.

Top featherweight contenders will battle over 10-rounds as Rhode Island’s TOKA KAHN “T-Nice” CLARY faces BRAULIO “El Chavo” RODRIGUEZ of Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, for the vacant WBC Continental Americas Featherweight Title. Featured in the 10-round co-main event, DUKE “The Baby Faced Terminator” MICAH of Ghana will make his U.S. debut defending his WBC International Bantamweight Title against MARIO “EL Triturador” DIAZ of Mexico.

In an eight round clash of top super featherweight prospects, Washington D.C.’s JOSHUA DAVIS will battle RAY “Lightning Jr.” LAMPKIN of Portland, Oregon. Fighting out of Atlanta is undefeated and fast-rising 20-year-old junior lightweight prospect ELIJAH PIERCE. He will battle in a six rounder against an opponent to be announced.

Further information including the addition of numerous top prospects competing on this outstanding evening of world class professional boxing will be announced shortly.
