Strict Biz Promotions Unveils November 4th Debut Event with Adonis Wilkins

Some major boxing news arrives as an exciting new boxing promotion is poised to launch exclusively on Fight Club Live TV. Strict Biz Promotions has just unveiled its boxing schedule, and this inaugural card promises to showcase exceptional talent and may mark the professional debut of a future top-ranked boxing athlete.

Strict Biz Promotions, co-founded by Greg Pritchett and Rashad Brown, both widely recognized and esteemed figures in the local boxing community, is scheduled to debut on November 4th, 2023, with their inaugural professional event. Both Pritchett and Brown have devoted decades to the community, independently cultivating fighters both physically and mentally. As community leaders and advocates for fighters, they have united to establish a promotion “by fighters, for fighters.” The primary objective is to enhance the local sports scene and create fresh opportunities for aspiring professional boxers.

As they elaborate further, it becomes evident that opportunities for professional boxing in the region were limited. Thus, the desire to empower these athletes and provide them with a platform led to the birth of Strict Biz Promotions. Pritchett affirms that you can anticipate more frequent, high-quality fights, offering local boxers a chance to compete. With an unwavering focus on the fighters, Strict Biz will make its debut on November 4th, 2023.

Strict Biz’s boxing schedule is no slouch either. They intend to introduce two new professional fighters, poised and prepared for their own professional debuts, underscoring the necessity for such a promotion. The announcement of the first professional boxer’s debut was made just today.

Adonis Wilkins is poised to commence his professional career during the inauguration of Strict Biz Promotions, a historic moment in its own right. Wilkins discovered his passion for boxing within the walls of MVJ Athletics Training Center at the tender age of 11. Many of his trainers promptly recognized his exceptional talent, ultimately bestowing upon him the moniker “The New Iron Mike.” Showcasing an explosive inside fighting style, Wilkins exhibited his skills with breathtaking speed and power.

However, numerous challenges obstructed his path to becoming a professional boxer. Nevertheless, Wilkins is now eternally bound by a promise he made to his mother before her passing. In her final moments, she instilled in him the belief that he possessed the potential to become a professional boxer. Wilkins carries her memory and promise as his driving force. Debuting on November 4th, Wilkins will fulfill his promise, demonstrating discipline, determination, and sacrifice, above all, keeping his word.

Considering the formidable reputation of the soon-to-be pro Wilkins, along with his resolute determination and inspiring narrative, it is evident that this fighter has a bright future. This assessment does not discount the determination and character of the founders of Strict Biz. Their stories, trials, and tribulations reveal that Strict Biz Promotions and its fighters will be a dominant force in the industry starting from November 4th onwards. One thing is certain – we can’t wait to see what the rest of this event has in store for us.
