IBF Junior Middle Eliminator at Miami Warfare Card on Nov 18th


On Friday, November 18, The Winner Sports Promotions, Bad Dog Productions and Warriors Boxing Promotions will proudly present “Miami Warfare” a night of world-class professional boxing at the Miami Airport Convention Center (MACC) in Miami, Florida.

Topping the action will be an IBF junior middleweight elimination bout to determine the #2 contender between Giorbis Barthelemy (25-8-2, 10 KOs) of Hialeah, Florida via Cuba, and Miami’s Charles “Killa” Whittaker (37-12-2, 23 KOs).

39-year-old Barthelemy is coming off TKO 2 over well-respected then-USBA Junior Middleweight Champion Derek Ennis in March. 37-year-old Whittaker is riding a 13-fight winning streak that included picking up the NABO, WBC Caribbean Boxing Federation (CABOFE) and USBA titles.

“These two guys have had good, respectable careers and they can both still fight. For the winner, this will represent the opportunity for one last shot at a world title,” said event co-promoter Leon Margules of Warriors Boxing. “So what we have in this terrific main event is two proud warriors giving everything they have to take a giant step toward reach their lifelong dream. It’s going to be sensational.”

In the main supporting bout will be wildly popular South Florida street fighter turned heavyweight Erik “The Viking” Leander (11-1, 8 KOs). The heavily muscled Leander’s kill-or-be-killed style never makes for a bad fight.

Leading up the undercard is cruiserweight destroyer Yunier Dorticos (12-0, 12 KOs), the knockout assassin from Cuba currently tearing through the 200-lb ranks.

Also appearing will be heavyweight Glendy Hernandez (7-0, 3 KOs); cruiserweight Yuniesky Gonzalez (5-0, 3 KOs); lightweight Hylon Williams Jr. (14-0, 3 KOs) and welterweight Antwone Smith (20-3-1, 12 KOs) – all against opponents that are TBA.

The venue of choice for major events, the beautiful Miami Airport Convention Center has just emerged from a major re-design and is now Miami’s second largest convention and exhibition facility.

Tickets are priced at $75 ringside/$25 general admission. A limited number of VIP tables available, please call (954) 985-1155 or (786) 553-3895 to purchase.

On fight night, doors open 6:30 and the action starts 7:30. The Miami Airport Convention Center is located at 711 NW 72nd Avenue in Miami.
