Undefeated Mike Jones Squares Off With

Phillie Phanatic June 8 At Citizens Bank Park


June 25, 2011

South Philly Arena

Philadelphia, Pennsylvania



Philadelphia, PA In preparation for his June 25 fight, undefeated welterweight Mike Jones is taking a risky,

possibly ill-advised, tuneup on short notice when he faces off against the always dangerous and also

undefeated Phillie Phanatic during the 5th inning of the Phillies-Dodgers game on June 8 at Citizens Bank



I havent been able to get the top names like (Manny) Pacquiao, (Floyd) Mayweather and (Andre) Berto in

the ring with me, so I jumped at the opportunity to fight the Phanatic, said Jones (24-0, 18 KOs), who also

will fight Raul Munoz at the South Philly Arena (7 West Ritner St.).


I will have my hands full with the Phanatic since hes big, has a furry good defense, packs a big wallop and,

under the terms of our hard-fought-out agreement, will be allowed to use his lethally long tongue. Plus, hell

have the advantage of fighting in front of a sell-out crowd of over 45,000 fans of his at Citizens Bank Park. An

incredible crowd for two top-notch undefeated pugilists. Hes tough and entertaining but when all is said and

done, hes one cool dude.


The Phanatic had no decipherable comments when asked about his fight with Jones, but was last seen in

heavy last-minute training and on-field taunting sessions.


People who attend the Jones-Phanatic showdown have the benefit of watching the Phillies-Dodgers game

that night.



If Mike Jones survives his June 8 clash with the Phillie Phanatic, he will fight Raul Munoz on Saturday

evening, June 25, at the South Philly Arena, 7 West Ritner Street. The scheduled 10-round contest, which

is being promoted by Top Rank, Inc., Peltz Boxing Promotions, Inc., and Joe Hand Promotions, will be

televised live by Fox Sports Net at 10 pm EST. The first of six additional bouts begins at 8 pm.


Tickets priced at $50 and $75 are on sale at the offices of Peltz Boxing Promotions (215-765-0922). They
