Said DeGuardia, "We're honored to work with the Comanche Nation Casino in our first event promoting George, he's an exciting boxer with an aggressive fan friendly style and we're looking for big things from him starting with this NABA Title bout."
Sporting a record of 30-0-1 with 22 knockouts, the heavy handed "Comanche Boy" returns to the Comanche Nation Casino where he scored one of the finest victories of his eight-year career, a first round knockout of Jimmy Holmes on July 16, 2011, earning the WBC Continental Americas Middleweight Title.
Tahdooahnippah won the first two bouts of his 2012 campaign; most recently dominating Rahman Yusubov over six rounds on April 26 in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
A proud Native American Indian and member of the Comanche Nation, Tahdooahnippah is based in Lawton, Oklahoma with his wife and four children. He celebrates each of his fight appearances and victories with the pounding of the Native American drums, the breathtaking display of Native American Fancy War Dancers and the hip hop sounds of his Native American rappers.
Riding a two bout-winning streak, Gundrick enters the title bout against Tahdooahnippah with a record of 18-8-0 (11KO's). In his last outing Gundrick won a unanimous decision over Mikel Williams on August 4 in Mobile, Alabama.
A full slate of exciting undercard bouts for this event will be announced shortly.
