Philadelphia, PA (November 9, 2018) -Tonight will be a very special night for former IBF Super Middleweight champion, Charles "The Hatchet" Brewer.

Brewer's nephew, Maurice Burke will make his pro debut when he takes on fellow debuter Brandon Bey in a four-round middleweight as part of a six-bout card promoted by King's Promotions at SugarHouse Casino.

Burke, also of Philadelphia is excited about the opportunity to follow in the family business.

"This is a dream come true. It has been a long process going back to my amateur career. I worked very hard for this moment. I have prepared for everything, and my potential is unmatched i feel confident and strong," said Burke, who had about 50 amateur fights.

"I have been in there with the best guys, and I fought in the Olympic Trials Qualifier. I won the State Title and everything."

"I don't feel any pressure following in my Uncle's footsteps. He was one of the 1st inspirations that made me want to compete, and it makes me want to be better. It's a beautiful thing that he will be in my corner and instill what he has to me. It's awesome that I have someone like him. Someone that I can believe in."

In the main event, undefeated bantamweight, Christian Carto (16-0, 11 KOs) takes on Antonio Rodriguez of Mexico.

Also seeing action will be undefeated fighters Poindexter Knight Jr. and Mark Dawson Jr. in separate bout.
