Donofrio Returns to Boxing with 'Winter Warfare'


Recommended Posts

Promoter Joseph Donofrio of Donofrio Entertainment (in association with Palace Sports and Jackie Kallen), who has found fame as the premier promoter of mixed martial arts in Michigan, will return to his roots and put on a boxing show entitled "Winter Warfare" at the fabulous Palace of Auburn Hills on January 6.


In the welterweight main event, hard-punching Palace favorite Lanardo "Pain Server" Tyner (25-5-2, 15 KOs) will go 10 rounds or less against an opponent that is TBA.


Even at 36 years old, Detroit's Tyner is still a handful for any world-class opponent and is still capable of pulling off the occasional upset. He has gone the distance with world champions Lamont Peterson and Saul Alvarez, beaten former world champion Vivian Harris and stopped well-respected prospect Antwone Smith last year.


In the first co-main event, Waterford, Michigan welterweight "Pistol" Pete Cantu (16-7-1, 10 KOs) is scheduled for six rounds, in what he vows is his final fight, against long-time rival Garvin "Chico" Crout of Ypsilanti, Michigan.
