Havoc Will be Raised at the Aviator on September 10


Jerry Glick reporting: Andre Rozier, founder and spiritual leader of Havoc promotions said that the fighters who compete on the Havoc show at the Aviator on Saturday night will be doing so in the memory of the tragic events of ten years ago. One day short of the tenth anniversary of “9/11”, the show is scheduled for September 10th and it will be big one; eleven fights.

“We are here to show the strength,” announced Rozier, “The power, and the diligence that we as Americans have. The athletes who are anticipating on this card will be boxing in the memory of all those that we did lose, (and) those who are still suffering at this moment. They said that they will put on one hell of a show.”

To add some additional incentive, if it is even needed, Rozier has promised to reward the fighter scoring the most impressive knockout $500, and to the two fighters who put up the best fight of the night, $250 each.

Rozier and his partner and CEO Robert Diaz are trying to do it differently than any other promotional outfit. “Havoc athletes,” said Andre, “know that we spoil everybody. We want everybody to be happy. It’s tough enough getting in the ring and being a pugilist, but know you are going to be treated like you are someone special. Fighters like us because we treat them with dignity and respect.”



Havoc attempts to be user friendly to the fighters and the fans. The Aviator is a smallish venue and therefore there are no bad seats in the house, and all seats are the same $50 each.

The show will have fights involving young eager boxers who want to impress. With the opportunity to shine on the anniversary of “911”, and a little extra cash for doing your best, plus wanting to build a career, there are many reasons to expect a lively show.

Havoc mantra is “We are different.” By that they mean that they will be as clean as a whistle and as fair to everyone as they can. Andre mentioned that often when a fighter loses it means that all he had accomplished is wiped off the map, but his organization has a new, friendlier attitude.

“A loss is not the end of the world,” said rosier. “Now you shouldn’t be losing to a lesser athlete, but when you meet an athlete with whom you are evenly matched, and for whatever reason you might come up short, it should not be the end of the world. The clause where other promoters say in their contracts you lose one fight and you’re done is nowhere near in our contracts. As long as you’re fighting and showing a true diligence to be a champion in your efforts, you’ll always box for Havoc.”

Rozier is attempting to bring some fresh air into boxing, and he appears to be doing it the right way.


***PUNCHLINES***

“All emergency service workers,” added Rozier,” will get a 20% discount on their tickets.”


In addition there will be a world title fight; Amanda Serrano, 11-0-1 (7 KOs), will face Kimberly Connor, 9-1-2 (4 KOs), for the vacant IBF Super-Featherweight title.
