By Togorashi

Bizzarro Promotions steps back into the ring Saturday, September 3rd at the Presque Isle Downs & Casino in Erie, PA with a main event featuring Prenice “Greatness” Brewer (17-4-1, 6 KOs) against upset minded Justin “Baby Boy” Johnson (6-12-6) in a six-round welterweight contest. The co-main event is a six-round contest featuring Youngstown, Ohio super featherweight prospect Alejandro “Popo” Salinas (6-1, 6 KOs) against an opponent to be determined.

Brewer, the highly touted former amateur star and National Golden Gloves champion owns victories over several previously undefeated fighters including, Michael Jean Louis (9-0, 8 KOs) and Emmanuel Taylor (14-0, 10 KOs). At twenty-eight years old, Brewer knows his time is now to live up to his nickname of “Greatness” and make a run at his championship aspirations. He will have a difficult task on his hands when he enters the ring on Saturday night against twenty-four fight veteran Justin Johnson.

Johnson is also no stranger to spoiling the dreams of rising stars as shown right in Erie, PA., owning draws with and Wilkins “The “Hispanic Hurricane” Santiago (12-1-2, 2 KOs) and James Robinson (3-4-3, 1KO) in his last two bouts.
