Phoenix, Arizona (October, 23, 2015) – Tonight!! at The Celebrity Theatre in Phoenix, Arizona, Lavarn “Baby Bowe” Harvell will step into the ring for his national television debut against Samuel Clarkson in a 8-round Light Heavyweight that be part of a tripleheader on ShoBox: The New Generation (10:30 ET/PT) on SHOWTIME.
Harvell, who is promoted by GH3 Promotions weighed in at 177 pounds (same as Clarkson)
Harvell of Atlantic City has a record of 15-1 with 8 knockouts is looking forward to the exposure and the opportunity on Friday night.
“I had a great camp and had lots of different sparring between Virginia and Newark, New Jersey,” said Harvell.
Harvell got an up close and personal look at Clarkson as he was ringside for Clarkson’s 3rd round stoppage over Harvell’s GH3 Promotions stablemate, Jerry Odom on July 17th.
“I was at his last fight. I think he is pretty one dimensional. He doesn’t do well with boxers.”
Harvell is looking at this as his time to shine and doesn’t feel he needs payback for the fight against Odom.
“I look at this as just a fight between him and I. It’s just me and the other fighter.”
Harvell, who turned professional in 2011, has had a few stops and starts to his career, but at still just age 25, he feels it is his time to become a name in the 175-pound division.
“I believe it is about time that I started receiving the television bouts. I am ready for it and I always knew that I would be here. Now I have to show up and put on a great performance.”
“A win puts me on a new level. This will open up doors that weren’t opened before. When I win, I will become a player in the Light Heavyweight division. I am ready. It is my time to shine and on Friday night, I am going to take full advantage of this opportunity.”
