Chazz Witherspoon waiting for right opportunity but first must get past Marrone this Saturday

Chazz “The Gentleman” Witherspoon is ready for a big fight against a top heavyweight, but first, he must get past  Mike Marrone On Saturday night, as D & D Promotions and Silver Spoon Promotions will present “Rumble at the Rink II” at the Grundy Arena in Bristol, Pennsylvania.

 

Witherspoon (34-3, 26 KO’s) of Paulsboro,  New Jersey is ready for the former world title challenger and he has taken him as a serious challenge for this Saturday’s main event.

 

“Training has been good.  I am ready to fight on Saturday,” said Witherspoon.

 

“I know Marrone from the amateurs.  We have spoken before at tournaments.  He seems like a nice guy, and I know he will come to fight.  He won’t lay down and I am expecting a good fight.”

 

Witherspoon has won four in a row by knockout knows that with another win or two, he will have a big opportunity at one of the top names in the heavyweight division.
