By Ken Hissner, Doghouse Boxing (Feb 11, 2011)
It was 1947 when professional boxing started in the Pennsylvania capital of Harrisburg. The last show was in 2003. Saturday night Payton Promotions will feature 6 bouts headlining with Tommy Karpency, 20-2-2 (13), out of Adah, PA, and Andre “Da Heat” Hemphill, 10-16-2 (5), of Philadelphia in an 8 round light heavyweight match-up.

Karpency had his 8 bout winning streak broken in Germany in 2010 but came back with a win in his last fight. Upset minded Hemphill has won his last 2 fights and has knocked off 2 previously unbeaten fighters.

In a 6 round light welterweight fight York’s unbeaten Stevie Weimer, 5-0 (2) takes on his toughest opponent to date in Julias Edmonds 7-9 (0), of Philadelphia. Harrisburg’s Josh Bowles makes his hometown debut in a 4 round featherweight match with Jonathan Ocassio who will also be looking for his first win. Bowles is a very popular former amateur star who the locals have been waiting to enter the box for pay ranks.

Jeremiah Karpency, 3-0 (1), the brother of the main event fighter will go up against William Miranda, 1-1 (0), of Allentown in a heavyweight 4 rounder. Travis “The Animal” Thompson, 3-7-1 (2), of Pottstown, is matched with Darrell Martin, 4-12- (1), of Baltimore, MD, in a 4 rounder in the lightweight division. Grayson Blake of State College makes his debut against Epifanio Cosme Rodriguez of Harrisburg who is looking for his first win in a welterweight 4 rounder.

Doors open at 6pm and first fight at 7pm.
