HOMETOWN HEROES HOLD OPEN WORKOUT IN YORK, PA
BOWMAN AND NEMO READY FOR INVASION OF
COLUMBIAN WARRIORS AT "BATTLE AT YORK 3"
Displaying their full array of world class talents at the Lincolnway Sports Center in York, both fighters were anxious to break camp as they prepared for the upcoming invasion from their Columbian counter parts.
Bowman will be featured in the main event against former world title challenger Jesus Perez of Cordoba, Columbia, while Nemo will face fellow former world title challenger Jose Bernal of Barranquilla.
Said the undefeated Bowman, “Eric and I have been working hard and it is a turf battle mentality when both guys are coming to fight us from the same place. But we’re ready, we’ve both worked hard and Saturday night should be special for the fans in York.”
Said Nemo, who will be fighting in his hometown for the first time in his pro career, “It’s great to be fighting in York, everywhere I’ve gone these last few weeks, everyone says the same thing, ‘See you on March 7th’”.
