Hard Hitting Promotions returns to the 2300 Arena in Philadelphia on Saturday, August 11th. The ten bout card features a ten round main event match up in the super middleweight division between Derrick Webster (26-1, 13 KOs) and Les Sherrington (37-10, 21 KOs). South Jersey's Webster has won seven straight bouts since dropping his one and only bout as a professional to Arif Magomedov in 2015. Sherrington, a native of Australia, has won two straight bouts heading into this fight.

Philadelphia's Eric Hunter (21-4, 11 KOs) makes his return to the ring, after dropping a unanimous decision fight to Lee Selby in 2016, against Fatiou Fassinou (28-10-3, 15 KOs). Fassinou has lost his last four contests by unanimous decision, the most recent coming earlier this year in April. The two fighters will square off in a six round fight in the featherweight division.

The card also features two of Philadelphia's young lightweight prospects Branden Pizarro (10-1, 4 KOs) and Jeremy Cuevas (9-0, 7 KOs). Pizarro will face Puerto Rico's Hector Marengo (7-12-4, 4 KOs) in a six round contest. Cuevas is scheduled to fight Deo Kizito (3-3, 2 KOs) in a six round contest.

Lightweights Samuel Teah (13-2-1, 6 KOs) and Zack Ramsey (8-3, 4 KOs) will square off in a six round bout. Teah, who resides in Philadelphia, is looking to win his second straight fight.

Veteran cruiserweight and former light heavyweight champion, Prince Badi Ajamu (29-4-1, 15 KOs) makes his return to the ring against Kenny Cruz Carasquillo (2-2-1, 2 KOs).
