"Season's Beatings" at Hard Rocks Casino scheduled for the Dec. 5th

With the holidays closing on us, more and more boxing events will pop up at the casinos, first is the "Season's Beatings" and the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino.

"Season's Beatings" at Hard Rocks Casino scheduled for the Dec. 5th Seminole Warriors Boxing and Joe DeGuardia’s Star Boxing finish out another stellar year of boxing events at Hard Rock Live at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino with a star-studded card featuring an IBF junior middleweight title elimination bout between Sechew Powell and Terrance Cauthen, and separate bouts featuring the return of former WBO world champion Juan Urango to Florida, and rising heavyweight star Kevin Johnson. The boxing event will take place on December 5 beginning at 6:30 p.m.

 A National Golden Gloves Champion in 2000 and a United States Amateur Champion in 2001, Brooklyn’s Sechew “The Iron Horse” Powell (21-1, 12 KOs) has been destined to achieve great things in the fight game. Winner of 21 out of 22 pro bouts, with his only loss coming at the hands of former world champion Kassim Ouma in 2006, Powell owns wins over Grady Brewer, Cornelius Bundrage, Robert Frazier, and most recently, Ishe Smith, making him one of the brightest young stars in the game today.

 Veteran southpaw stylist Terrance “The Heat” Cauthen (32-3, 9 KOs) is no stranger to spectacular amateur accomplishments, as he won a Bronze medal in the 1996 Olympic Games. Since then, the New Jersey native has struggled to find opponents willing to fight him, since they know a night in the ring with Cauthen will be a long one. Unbeaten in his last seven fights, the 31-year old is ready to prove that he belongs among the elite at 154 pounds.

 The former WBO world junior welterweight champion and one of the most exciting fighters in the game today, Juan Urango (18-1-1, 14 KOs) is on the road back to a world title after his August stoppage of Nasser Athumani, and his legion of Florida fans will be out in force to welcome him back to the Hard Rock for the first time since his title-winning effort over Naoufel Ben Rabah in June of 2006.

 Unbeaten in 18 pro fights, New Jersey-born Kevin “The Kingpin” Johnson (17-0-1, 6 KOs) has attracted almost unprecedented attention as one of the brightest contenders in the heavyweight division. Charismatic in the ring and outside of it, Johnson – who holds wins over Damian Wills and Daniel Bispo - has made it clear that he is ready for the best in the world, and he will be looking to send a message to his peers on December 5th. Opponents for Urango and Johnson, as well as an action-packed undercard, will be announced at a later date.
