KINGMAN - When Z Entertainments hosts a night of boxing Nov. 8 at Kingman Academy High School, it will be nearly six years to the day since the local promoter hosted its King of Kingman boxing night on Nov. 9, 2007.

Zef Ramirez, promoter for Z Entertainments and a Kingman businessman, had within the last couple of years stepped away from promoting boxing so he could focus on the companies he owns and spend more time with his family.

Ramirez is once again dipping his toes into boxing and wants Kingman to be a part of it.

"We want to build a great fan base here and provide the most entertaining events for our community," Ramirez said. "We'll be donating funds from the night's proceeds to the Kingman Academy High School athletic department, which is special since my child attends these schools."

The buildup for the Nov. 8 fights began on Monday when Ramirez organized a public workout for the fighters at KAHS. Ramirez said there were approximately 400 people in attendance.

Recently, Z Entertainments re-signed Carlos "Baby Sugar" Deleon Jr. (21-3-2, 14 knockouts), who was once ranked by the World Boxing Council (WBC). Deleon will be the main event for the upcoming fight night called the "Battle at the Academy."

Jonathon Jackson Hearns (2-1-1), a nephew of living legend Thomas "Hitman" Hearns, is scheduled to be on the undercard in a light-middleweight fight. Cromwell "Bullet" Gordon of Las Vegas is also scheduled, and amateur Ivey Nixen will make his middleweight debut in Kingman. Ramirez said he hopes to land some local fights on the undercard as well.

Tickets are available by calling (928) 530-2886.
