Bethlehem, PA (February 12) – North Carolina’s “KO King” Blake Mansfield returns to the ring to face Darryl Bunting on Tuesday, February 13, at The Sands Bethlehem Event Center in Bethlehem, PA.
Mansfield 5-1-1 (3 KO’s) kicks off his 2018 season on a seek and destroy mission looking for his second straight win. Mansfield fought in October on a Durham, North Carolina card stopping Courtney McCleave.
Mansfield is fighting at The Sands Bethlehem for the second time and will be looking for his second straight win in Bethlehem, PA. In his last fight at The Sands Bethlehem in December 2016, Mansfield upset heavily regarded prospect Antowyan Aikens.
Bunting 3-2-2 (1 KO), a crafty fighter with better than average boxing skills and movement, provides Mansfield with a good challenge in their scheduled six round bout. Bunting is known as the “Dream King,” and he has gone the distance in six of his eight fights. Bunting is looking to get back on the winning track after his June 2017 loss to Gregory Clark.
Mansfield is excited about kicking off 2018, and sees Bunting as one small step to reaching his goals: “I’m coming to seek and destroy. I said 2018 is my year, and I don’t plan on that changing. So, it starts with him. I want to thank all my fans and supporters!”
Also on the card, Kermit Cintron tries to get back into the Welterweight mix and heavyweight Joe Hanks.
