On Friday, February 7, 2003, I’m making my amateur boxing debut at the Toughman Contest, which is being held at the Peoria Civic Center. I am fighting in the lightweight division (164-184 lbs.) among up to 19 other competitors. I will fight only once on Friday’s elimination event. If I win, I move onto Saturday’s elimination tournament in which I could fight up to four times to win my weight division. If you’ve got nothing to do this weekend and would like to see a college student get beaten on, come on by!
FIGHTER: Charles “The Scholar” Chun
HEIGHT: 5 ft. 9 1/2 in.
