Middleweight boxer and Atlanta native Quatavious Cash is scheduled to be in action this Sunday night at the Mansion Elan.
Thanks to Route 30 Promotions, there will be a full slate of professional and amateur boxing matches taking place at the Mansion Elan this Sunday night.

The venue is the first of the season for Route 30 and slated as the Pain & Pleasure Edition, which will feature professional fighters Quatavious Cash, Shannon Briggs, Meegal Harper, Kertson Manswell, Kenny McNeil and William Farley, who is an Atlanta native along with Cash.

“It’s nothing else like this going on in Atlanta,” Route 30 Director of Operations Byron Oglesby said.

Atlanta native and middleweight Cash (7-0, 4 KO) will have his second straight bout at the Mansion Elan but this time against Leo Laudat (8-13, 8 KO) in a six-round bout.

“He's looking to try and hurt Cash right away,” Oglesby said. “It’s going to be a very entertaining fight. This will be a good test to see where Cash is at in his career.”

In their previous fights which were both in August, Cash defeated Dennis Williams by unanimous decision and Laudat fell to Harper by technical knockout in the second round.

“Laudat is a tough kid,” Oglesby said. “A good puncher. He came out very strong against Harper and tried to get Harper out in the first round.”

As far as Harper, who is 9-0 with seven knockouts, his opponent was still unknown at press time.

Middleweight McNeil (5-1, 2 KO) will face Chris Gray (13-17) in a six-round fight and Farley (3-0, 2 KO) will meet Jesus Tavera (5-4) in a six-round match.

“Tavera comes to fight,” Oglesby said. “This is guaranteed to be an action-packed fight.”

In the heavyweight division, Briggs (51-6, 45 KO) returns to the ring for the first time since his unanimous decision loss to Vitali Klitschko in 2010.

“We will get to see where the former world champion is in his career,” Oglesby said.

The 42-year-old Briggs will face Manswell (24-8, 18 KO) in a 10-round bout.

Doors open for this event at 6 p.m. and tickets are on sale at
