LionHeart Boxing: Heavyweight Explosion 2.0

Lion Heart Boxing Productions, a global boxing sports and entertainment company will promote a revival of the iconic Heavyweight Explosion series. 

Heavyweight Explosion was one of the most popular fight series in the 1990s and early 21st Century and was promoted by both Boxing and MMA promoters, including the late Cedric Kushner, World Extreme Cagefighting, and Lion Heart Boxing Productions.

The next episode of Heavyweight Explosion, aptly called Heavyweight Explosion 2.0, will be held on September 24, 2021, at the Sugar Creek Casino in Hinton, Oklahoma.  The main event features American Heavyweight Contender JD “The Natural” Chapman (30-1, 26 KO’s), who continues his surprise comeback against an opponent to be announced.

Chapman returned to Boxing on June 5, 2021, after a thirteen-year layoff. At the time of his retirement, Chapman was ranked by just about every rating organizing and was considered one of America’s best chances at reclaiming the Heavyweight title. With his return, Chapman immediately became one of the most talked-about heavyweight contenders.

In the Co-Main event, Kenzie Morrison (17-), the son of a boxing legend and a legitimate Heavyweight Contender, faces an opponent to be announced.  Morrison takes inspiration from his dad Tommy Gunn Morrison, the late heavyweight world champion who is the last Heavyweight World Champion to come out of Oklahoma.  Tommy Gunn Morrison was a larger-than-life celebrity who was internationally renowned not only for his boxing but also for starring in the Rocky movie franchise.

As always, Heavyweight Explosion will feature top heavyweights and other fighters, including boxers from the international scene such as Djamel Dahou (16-0), as well as plenty of local stars to be determined.
