The Ambassador Club, Saint Louis, Missouri will play host to a ten-fight card on Saturday 29th July. "Fight Night in Lou" is promoted by DBA Cameron Promotions and headlined by local boxer Vaughn "The Animal" Alexander.

Vaughn Alexander (17-7-1, 10 KOs) takes on Brooklyn's Courtney Pennington (17-6-3, 7 KOs), in a ten-round middleweight contest. Both men are hugely experienced and are looking to push up the rankings. The crowd can expect fireworks!
Alexander, the brother of former World champion Devon, holds an impressive win over top contender Luis Arias though has been on the wrong side of bad decisions several times. In his last fight, he travelled to France to take on unbeaten contender Christian Mbilli, in a super middleweight contest. He took the local man the full ten rounds. In his previous fight, he destroyed Sergio Samuel Castellano in one round.
'The Animal has mixed in World class company, having taken WBO middleweight champion Zhanibek Alimkhanuly and Bektemir "Bully" Melikuziev the full distance.

Courtney "BKNY" Pennington has boxed all over the World including Jamaica, Canada, Colombia, and the United Kingdom. He has wins over former World title challenger Delvin Rodriguez and holds wins over Greg Vendetti, Boyd Melson and Khiary Gray. He's coming in fresh after a recent win over James Martin, in Philadelphia.

The undercard features experienced campaigners, unbeaten prospects and 50/50 match-ups.

Cruiserweight Knockout artist Brandon "Da Boss" Martin will be looking to remain undefeated against Oklahoma's Vincent Baccus (5-3-1, 3 KOs), in a six-round contest. Since turning professional in 2018, Martin has racked up seven straight wins, five by way of knockout.

Undefeated middleweight Kendrick Watkins (2-0, 2 KOs) takes on local boxer Jarvis Williams (9-8-1, 5 KOs). This will be a good test for North Dakota's Watkins, as the last time Jarvis fought, at this venue, he broke the nine-fight unbeaten record of Quontez McRath. The bout will be over six rounds.

The local crowd will get to see St. Louis' own Joshua Temple, in a scheduled eight-rounder. Heavyweight boxer Temple (11-2, 9 KOs) is on a four-fight winning streak. An opponent will be announced soon.

In a four-round lightweight contest, Samir Simpson Bey (7-1-1, 7 KOs) will be having his fourth straight bout at the Ambassador venue. He will take on undefeated Maximus Moya (3-0, 2 KOs), of Albuquerque, New Mexico.

Sharone Carter (13-7, 3 KOs) will be looking to get back to winning ways, as the "Smoke" takes on Joshua Draughter (4-4-1, 1 KO), of Louisiana. The six-round super bantamweight contest is a must-win for Carter, who has never lost professionally in his hometown.
