Chicago, IL, November 7, 2013–Although exciting Chicago super middleweight Mike “Hollywood” Jimenez (11-0, 8 KOs) saw his September fight against Derrick Findley (29-11-1, 13 KOs) stopped in the 7th round, he retained his undefeated record after the fight was ruled a no contest due to Findley testing positive for a banned substance. Jimenez will again try for his 12th win against no losses as he steps into the ring against “King” David Thomas (10-4-2, 8 KOs) on November 27, for a six rounder during Hitz Boxing’s “Fight Night at the Horseshoe: The Black Wednesday Battle.”
“My last fight wasn’t my best. I trained hard and gave it my all. I showed everyone that I can hang in there and there is no quit in me,” said Jimenez. “But I need to show everyone I am better than what I showed in September. You are only as good as your last fight I am ready to show what I am made of.”
For his part Thomas looks to return to winning form after outings against gatekeeper Findley as well as middleweight contender Donatas Bondas (18-4-1, 6 KOs).
“For this fight I am moving up to the super middleweight division and I think the extra pounds will add to my power in the ring,” Thomas recently told the ringside.biz. “This is most definitely a statement fight for me. The guy is undefeated and a win over him I feel would open some doors for me. I want people to know I can fight and beat good competition.”
Jimenez, who weighed 166.25 lbs against Findley expects to take the ring at 168 lbs when he faces Thomas and is promising an exciting match.
I’ll be giving fans the excitement they love to come and see. I’ll be better and will put on an impressive show,” said Jimenez. “My team and I will be ready for WAR as always. I’ll be in BEASTMODE!”
