Mingo County boxer Warren “The Hitman” Browning will make his return to the ring Saturday, February 15 at Pullman Plaza Hotel in Huntington, W.Va.
Browning suffered a hand injury last Fall and had to miss his last scheduled fight. He has been rehabilitating the injury and has been itching to get back into the boxing ring.
“This is the return of me after my injury, on a quest to bring back the state cruiser weight title to Mingo County,” Browning said. “I’ve been preparing for the March 29th rematch of Bobby Thomas, Jr.”
“This is my year and nothing or no one stands in my way. I need all the support from any Mingo native,” Browning stressed.
His first fight will be against Daniel Schull. Browning fights for Black Eye Promotions out of Danville, W.Va.
Another Mingo County professional boxer, Austin Marcum of Dingess, is also scheduled to fight on this card. Marcum will take on Tierre King.
Other boxers on this card are Adam Collins vs. Jay Holland, Cory Phelps vs. Jason Williams, Charlie Wade vs. “Dirty” Don Pennington, Derick Lambert vs. “Nasty” Nathan Butcher and Matt Garretson vs. Eric Slocum. For a full slate of the bouts you can check Facebook at PullmanFightNight.

All of the fights are sanctioned by the W.Va. Athletic Commission.
