Also on the card: former World Heavyweight Champion Mitch Green, current WBE Light Heavyweight World Champion Carlette Ewell, a hotly contested match for the WBE Middleweight title, and a host of well known North Carolina heavy hitters.

WINSTON-SALEM, NC - July 26 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- At 8pm on August 13, 2005, the Lawrence Joel Veterans Memorial Coliseum Annex in Winston-Salem, NC, Ring of Dreams presents Fight Night, an event taut with anticipation and excitement. The Main Event will rock the house as undefeated heavyweight Moultrie Witherspoon (10-0), of South Carolina, steps into the ring to do battle with Ron Bellamy (14-2) of North Carolina in a quest for currently vacant World Boxing Empire (WBE) heavyweight world title.

Well known North Carolina favorites Earl "Chocolate Drop" Ladson and Derek "The Black Lion" Edwards will also square off against worthy opponents in the ring. Ladson will go up against Erick Starr of North Carolina, while the undefeated Edwards (16-0) will face Robert Marsh of South Carolina.

The fight card also features two female bouts. The fight for the vacant WBE World Middleweight belt, previously held by Bonnie Mann, now retired, promises to be a slugfest.
