“Mighty Mo” Hooker To Defend His Title In Dallas, Texas At The Omni


DALLAS, TX – Top undefeated prospect and NABO junior welterweight champion Maurice “Mighty Mo” Hooker (22-0, 16 K0s) will make his highly anticipated homecoming on Saturday, August 19th in Dallas, TX in the main event of “A Knock out Affair” Round XXV vs Courtney “Lion Heart” Jackson at the Omni Dallas Hotel.

Promoted by The Undercard Promotions LLC, in association with Roc Nation Sports, Hooker vs Jackson will be a 10 round NABO Jr. Welterweight Championship title fight. Currently ranked #2 with the World Boxing Organization and #4 with the International Boxing Federation, Hooker will be making his 5th title defense vs the undefeated Jackson of Homestead, Florida who brings a very solid record of 17-0, 10 KO’s.

Said the excited Mighty Mo, “It’s great to be back to defend my title in my home town where I first won it a little over 2 years ago. To do so on behalf of an amazing organization like The Links for their 25th anniversary event is my honor. I have been working around the clock at Maple Avenue Boxing Gym preparing for this event.”
