RDR Promotions Signals Boxing’s Philadelphia Return

It was eight months ago that RDR Promotions made its promotional debut, delighting a sold out house at the 2300 Arena. Now RDR Promotions is set to resume pugilistic action. 

The company has its 6 bout fight card at 2300 Arena slated for November 7th, which will be the first in the city since the outbreak of COVID-19. The headlining bout will feature Mark Dawson, an undefeated fighter from Philadelphia, who will be taking on some inter-city competition in Vincent Floyd in a welterweight fight scheduled for 6 rounds. 

Dawson is a recent signee of Split-T Management and has a record of 6-0-1 with 3 knockout victories. A pro for four years, the 23-year old’s last result was a unanimous decision win over Jordan Morales in March.  Floyd has the experience advantage as a  7 year professional. That includes a 4-9-1 record with 2 wins by knockout. Floyd has also fought 6 opponents with an undefeated record and is no stranger to fighting an up and coming prospect. Both fighters are southpaws, resulting in the rare lefty on lefty matchup. 

The rest of the card will feature four-round bouts which are as follows:

Brandon Mullins (6-0, 2 KOs) of Newark, DE fights Bryant Costello (1-1,1 KO) of Liberty, NY in a super middleweight fight.

Daiyann Butt (5-0, 3 KOs) of Philadelphia will fight Dieumerci Nzau (11-12, 8 KOs) of Silver Spring, MD super lightweight fight.

Dylan Price (10-0, 7 KOs) of Sicklerville, NJ takes on an opponent to be named in a super flyweight contest.

Nafear Charles (4-0, 4 KOs) of Philadelphia battles David Veras Pena (0-2-1) of Odenton, MD in a super lightweight contest.

Naheem Parker (1-0) of Camden, NJ will fight Joseph Santana (0-3) of Providence, RI in a Lightweight bout.
