‘Pro Boxing Under the Lights’ comes to Southeast Tennessee Saturday, Oct. 7, at the Chattanooga Lookouts Stadium. Connect Promotions announces, ‘King of the Hill – Pro Boxing Under The Lights!’
“There have been a number of pro boxing events held in Southeast Tennessee the past few years, but nothing quite like this,” said Clint Powell, owner of Connect Promotions and promoter of the event. “We plan on having 12 pro bouts with boxers from at least six states and at least seven are undefeated.”
‘King of Hill' will also have two local brothers sharing the spotlight as co-main bouts. Roger ‘The Hitman’ Hilley and Joseph ‘2Fast’ Francisco will both be in action on Saturday, Oct. 7. “They are both working very hard and will be ready to give a good show that night against very good competition. I think this will be one of the best cards we have seen in this area in a long time,” said Andy Smith, the manager and trainer for ‘The Hitman’ and ‘2Fast.’
Connect Promotions has hosted three pro boxing events in the Chattanooga area in the past 12 months and promises that this one will be the most entertaining yet. “Teaming up with the Chattanooga Lookouts has been a great move," said Mr. Powell. "We will have step teams, drumlines, bagpipes, food and drink, and maybe a few surprises throughout the evening. We are going to deliver a night of entertainment and great boxing."

Both local professionals are products of the YMCA/YCAP program in Chattanooga. The YCAP program is an early intervention program designed to help young men who have been referred to them through local agencies and addresses their academic, spiritual and social needs. A portion of all ticket and table sales from the Oct. event will go to help support the YMCA/YCAP program. “I am a big believer in the program and what it does for our community. It’s possible to have a great event that entertains thousands, make some money, and give back to the community we live in,” said Mr. Powell.
“We are excited to team up with Connect Promotions for ‘King of the Hill.’ This event has all the makings of something special in Chattanooga and it allows us to continue to find new and unique ways to take advantage of our ballpark,” said Rich Mozingo, president and general manager of the Chattanooga Lookouts.
