September 21st Card In Glen Burnie Raises Funds For Former Maryland Boxer!

Baltimore Boxing will hold a card on Thursday, September 21st at Michael's Eighth Avenue in Glen Burnie, MD that will raise funds for a very special cause.

The card is called "Punches and Prayers For Alan Blyweiss."  Blyweiss, a native of Pikesville, MD, was a local amateur and pro boxer who earned a living as a sparring partner for a number of boxers. Over the last few years, Blyweiss has had a number of serious health issues including a testicular hernia, a stomach ailment that required two-thirds of his stomach to be removed and multiple spine and hip procedures that limited his mobility.

Then in March of 2016, Blyweiss was diagnosed with Pugilistic Dementia which has caused his memory to fade and his speech to be halted.  Blyweiss also requires a walker or wheelchair for stability.

Tickets for the event are $40 for general admission and VIP seats are $60.  The main event on the card will be a match up for the East Coast Heavyweight championship between Brian Haneschlager and Tyrone Holt.  Also, Deshawn Chase and Clayton Fraser will be in separate bouts for the Maryland Welterweight and Middleweight championship, respectively.  The card is scheduled to begin at 8:15 PM ET.
