PLANT CITY, Florida (March 21, 2022): Heavyweights Christian Thun (7-0, 5 KOs) of Schwelm, Germany and Amron Sands (11-1, 9 KOs) of Orlando, Florida meet Friday, March 25 in the eight-round co-feature on an event topped by a super lightweight face-off pitting Frenchman Mohamed Mimoune vs. Cesar Francis of New York. The card also features an array of undefeated prospects and will take place at the ProBox Events Center in Plant City, Florida.
Streaming information will be announced shortly.
Thun is a native of Ennepetal, Germany who debuted as a professional in March 2018. The 30-year-old puncher has since remained undefeated in seven fights, maintaining a more than 70% knockout ratio in the process by scoring wins in different parts of the world, including Monaco, Spain, the United States and in his home country.
In his last outing, Thun stopped Keenan Hickmon via knockout in only one round. It won’t be too long before he gets to challenge some of the big names in the division, but first he’ll need a similar performance against Sands in order to earn a top stop in the rankings.
Sands, a 27-year-old native of the Bahamas, debuted as a pro in 2017 and has since developed in to a local favorite in the South Florida area.
His only loss has been against a fellow undefeated fighter and he possesses more knockouts than Thun has fights, so he may have everything it takes to ruin Thun’s plans at moving up the rankings.
The March 25 event features a full slate of undercard action.
