Elite Prospect Demontaze Duncan Returns October 23 Against Jarrell Murray
Highly regarded welterweight prospect Demontaze Duncan will make his in ring return on October 23rd in Oak Grove, Kentucky. One of the headlining fights on Tri-Star Boxing’s sequel to its Bourbon & Boxing Fight Series at Oak Grove Racing and Gaming.
While Duncan is a promotional free agent the pairing of surging young prospect, and quickly growing promotion were a perfect match for this event.
Duncan had a busy first year in professional boxing. After being ranked #1 at 152lbs in USA Boxing as an amateur, the big puncher from Louisville turned pro in February. Since then he’s been a perfect 4-0 with 4 knockouts, each one more impressive then the next.
The man they call “Juicy” now looks to make it 5-0, and end an incredible rookie year on a high note. Hailing from the West End of Louisville, Duncan has excited 502 fight fans who expect him to carry on the city’s rich boxing tradition. An inspirational backstory detailed in a previous 3Kings Prospect Watch, makes Duncan one of the easiest up and comers to root for in this sport.
“I think we’ve got a great card with a mix of well established veterans and high level prospects on the Bourbon & Boxing card. The last installment of this series did fantastic viewership numbers so we’re all very excited.
“But on October 23rd there’s one fight I’m going to be paying extra close attention to, and that’s the Duncan fight. I truly believe the kid is an elite prospect with a seriously bright future in this sport”.
