FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Super Channel to air Vasyl Lomachenko vs. Miguel Marriaga Saturday night in Canada

EDMONTON, Alberta, Canada (July 31, 2017) – Super Channel subscribers in Canada will have the opportunity to watch superstar Vasyl Lomachenko, arguably the No. 1 pound-for-pound professional boxer in the world today, as the Ukrainian defends his World Boxing Organization (WBO) Association Junior Lightweight World Championship for the second time, this Saturday night (August 5), starting at 10 p.m. ET / 7 p.m. PT, live from Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles.

The 29-year-old Lomachenko (8-1, 6 KOs) will be challenged by two-time world title challenger, dangerous Colombian knockout artist Miguel “The Scorpian” Marriaga (25-2, 21 KOs), the WBO No. 10-ranked contender, in the 12-round main event.

Three exciting fights on the stacked “Lomachenko vs, Marriaga” card, promoted by Top Rank, will air exclusively in Canada on Super Channel.

Super Channel has recently aired major boxing events live like Brook vs. Spence Jr., Pacquiao-Horn, and Eubank, Jr. vs. Abraham.

“we are all ecstatic to be bringing this exciting bout featuring one of the world’s best boxers, Vasyl Lomachenko, to our viewers and to be presenting another top-notch card from legendary promoter, Top Rank’s Bob Arum, to Canadian fight fans,” said Troy Wassill. Director of Programming, Domestic Distributors & Sports for Super Channel.

Lomachenko is regarded by many as the greatest amateur boxer of his time and arguably all-time having captured two Olympic gold medals (2008 & 2012) and three World Championships, reportedly losing only once in 396 amateur bouts.

Eight (7-1) of his nine fights during his three-year pro career have been in world title fights, including world title winning performances in two different weight classes, WBO featherweight and junior lightweight. Lomachenko has defeated world champions Gary Russell, Jr., Roman Martinez and Nicholas Walters.

Marriaga, who is moving up to junior lightweight to challenge Lomachenko, is a battled-tested challenger with good power and a strong amateur background.

In the 12-round co-feature, NABO & NABF lightweight champion “Sugar” Raymundo Beltran (33-7-1, 21 KOs) defends his titles against former two-time Interim World Boxing Association (WBA) Super Featherweight World Champion Bryan Vasquez (36-2, 19 KOs).

Mexico-native Beltran, fighting out of Phoenix (AZ), is a two-time world title challenger who is knocking on the door for another world title shot. Beltran is ranked No. 2 in the world by the WBO, World Boxing Council (WBC) and International Boxing Federation (IBF), as well as No. 6 by the WBA.

Vasquez, fighting out of Costa Rico, is rated the No. 1 lightweight contender in the world by the WBA

In the eight-round Super Channel opener, 2012 Olympic silver medalist Esquiva Falcao (17-0, 12 KOs), the undefeated Brazilian middleweight, steps up in terms of class opposition to face Ivan “Terrible” Montero (20-2, 8 KOs), of Mexico.

LAS VEGAS (Nov. 9, 2016) – Sharif “The Lion” Bogere (29-1, 20 KO’s) is back in action after a flawless fifth round TKO victory against Luis Florez on September 16th. Bogere will face Hylon Williams (16-3-1, 3KO’s) in a 10-round lightweight battle on December 2nd at Sam’s Town Live in the main event. A win for Bogere will increase his win streak to seven and bring him one step closer to a title opportunity.

 

“I am excited; as “The Lion” you will hear me ‘roar’ on December 2nd,” said Bogere. “I think my performance last fight gave the fans what they wanted to see, I gained more fans, but most importantly, I was focused. This fight will bring me even closer to a title fight, and that is what I am here for,”

 

“I’m facing a tough opponent, but I’ve already been in the ring in some tough battles and learned from those experiences,” said Williams. “I don’t see much getting in my way of me stopping him come December 2nd,”

 

Further action will see former title challenger Ashley “Treasure” Theophane (39-7, 12 KO’s) in the co-main event, who has made it clear that he is here for redemption. Theophane, who was originally supposed to be featured on the last Sin City Showdown card on October 8th has taken this time to train harder, become more focused and is set to out perform and come out on top with a victory.

 

“It’s been said that this is my redemption fight,” said Theophane. “I have been faced with many challenges in my career, with my back up against the wall and have bounced back. This fight is like any other fight, and I plan to come out victorious,”

 

Bogere fights out of Las Vegas, while proudly representing his native Uganda. The 27-year-old won his first 23 pro fights while picking up victories over Raymundo Beltran, Francisco Contreras, and Manuel Levya. He enters this bout on a six-fight win streak and will be challenged by Hylon Williams fighting out of Las Vegas, NV.

 

Originally from Houston, Williams now fights out of Las Vegas. He began his career in 2008 with a 15-0 record, until former two-division world champion Rances Barthlemy stopped him back in February 2012. Williams bounced back with a win versus John Willoughby the same year, and after a 3 year hiatus found himself back in the ring to face Jason Lizau, which judges ruled a draw. Since then, Wiliams has suffered back-to-back losses against Yuriokis Gamboa on December 19 2015, and Rashad Ganaway on August 20, 2016.

 

Theophane has faced many top opponents in the 140-147 class, including Danny Garcia, Pablo Cesar Cano, and Adrien Broner. He started his 2015 campaign with back-to-back victories over both Mahonri Montes in April and Steve Upsher in September. On April 1, 2016 he suffered a tough loss to Adrien Broner in a world title fight.

 

Fight Night will take place on Friday, December 2nd at Sam’s Town Live.Tickets for the live event, which is promoted by Mayweather Promotions, start at $15 and are available online at: www.samstownlv.com/entertain and on www.mayweatherpromotions.com.

Beltran destroys Takahiro!

Raymundo Beltran put on a masterful performance against Takahiro Ao on Friday night at The Chelsea at The Cosmopolitan Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. The fight was the main event on Top Rank’s truTV card.

Beltran was unable to make weight for what would’ve been his opportunity to gain the vacant WBO lightweight title.  So it came as no surprise that Beltran came out and fought with a chip on his shoulder. He bullied and ripped through the Japanese fighter en route to a second round stoppage. Ao was unable to overcome the assault by Beltran from round one, as Raymundo came out on fire and dominated.

In the second round, Beltran landed a big right hand on the button that sent Ao to the canvas.  Ao rose on shaky legs and Beltran closed in to finish.  An abundant follow-up flurry followed, punctuated with a left hook that caused referee Tony Weeks to step in and halt the massacre.

Beltran raises his record to 30-7-1 (18 KOs).  Takahiro drops to 27-4-1.

In the opening bout of Top Rank’s truTV broadcast, a battle of undefeated fighters took place. Canadian Mikael Zewski battled Russia’s Konstantin Ponomarev.  The favored Zewski never could seem to get a consistent flow going as he chose a passive approach.  On the other hand, Ponomarev’s plan seemed to be to get off first as he landed big shots through the night, eventually causing Zewski’s eyes to swell.

Zewski did have his moments, but wasn’t as aggressive as he should’ve been in the fight.  Scores were 99-91, 97-93, and 98-92.  The Fight Journal had it 97-93.

Ponamarev raises his record to 28-0, (13 KOs).  Zewski falls to 26-1, (20 KOs).
