Huntington, New York, January 27, 2018

Joe DeGuardia’s Star Boxing presented the latest edition of the ‘Rockin fights’ series last night at the Paramount in Huntington, NY before a completely sold out crowd.

The main event saw Hicksville, NY native Anthony “Showtime” Karperis, improve to 15-3 5KO with an impressive 10 round unanimous win over the ever so tough and game Nicaraguan, Nelson Lara, who falls to 17-10-4 9KO by scores of 100-90, and 99-91 on the other two judge’s scorecards.  The bout was contested in the jr. welterweight division.

It was a fast-paced action fight as Karperis, displayed great hand speed and impressive combinations throughout the 10 round bout. Lara, to his credit never stopped coming forward as he was more than willing to exchange punches with Karperis.  Both fighters gave it their all, but it was Karperis in the end coming away with a hard fought and well-earned victory.

Tyrone “Pretty Boy” James improved to 7-0 3KO as he dispatched Brazilian, Alex Duarte DeJesus at 1:45 in the 3rd round of a scheduled 6 round jr. welterweight match up. Both fighters exchanged freely to the delight of the crowd.

UNDEFEATED WELTERWEIGHT PROSPECT TYRONE JAMES VS. VETERAN DANIEL SOSTRE ADDED TO SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 11EVENT FROM NYCB LIVE, HOME OF THE NASSAU VETERANS MEMORIAL COLISEUM

UNDEFEATED WELTERWEIGHT PROSPECT TYRONE JAMES VS.

VETERAN DANIEL SOSTRE ADDED TO SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 11EVENT FROM NYCB LIVE, HOME OF THE NASSAU VETERANS MEMORIAL COLISEUM

NEW YORK (OCTOBER 26, 2017) – Undefeated all-action welterweight prospect Tyrone ‘Pretty Boy’ James, (5-0, 3 KO’s), of Elmont, NY faces veteran Daniel Sostre(13-14-1, 5 KO’s), in a six round clash on Saturday, November 11 from Long Island’s NYCB LIVE, home of the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum on the non-televised portion of the HBO World Championship Boxing tripleheader, it was announced by Joe DeGuardia, CEO and President of Star Boxing.

The 26-year-old James, whose father played professional football, has quickly impressed local fight fans since his pro debut in November 2015, including his last four victories at famed venue, The Paramount in Huntington, New York.

“I’m very excited to be fighting so close to home and on such a huge card. As soon as Joe DeGuardia called to offer me the opportunity I jumped at it,” said James. “I was at the first boxing card in July at the Coliseum and knew I wanted to fight there. It’s a great place for my family and friends to see me in a bigger venue.”

“Sostre has fought a lot of tough fighters and has more experience than me but I’ll be ready on November 11 for victory,” continued James who works in the Nassau County Sanitation Department.

Stated DeGuardia, “This is an excellent opportunity and a true test for Tyrone and we’re thrilled to announce his addition to this sensational card. He has a very crowd-pleasing style and his last four fights at The Paramount have shown that local boxing fans want to see more of him. We look forward to another great performance from him on November 11.”

Sostre, a native of Highland, NY, has fought a long list of top contenders and prospects over his twelve-year career including Wale Omotoso, Mikael Zewski, Raymond Serrano, Gabriel Bracero, Ray Robinson and Mykal Fox.

The HBO World Championship Boxing event is headlined by a 12-round middleweight showdown between Daniel ‘Miracle Man’ Jacobs taking on Luis Arias and rising heavyweight Jarrell ‘Big Baby’ Miller squaring off with Mariusz Wach in the co-main.

In the opening bout of the telecast, Long Island fan favorite Cletus ‘The Hebrew Hammer’ Seldin battles Roberto ‘Massa’ Ortiz in a highly anticipated 10-round junior welterweight clash.

Demetrius Andrade – Alantez Fox outdraws main event on HBO Boxing After Dark®

 

 

Demetrius Andrade – Alantez Fox outdraws main event on HBO Boxing After Dark®

 

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

White Plains, NY/Philadelphia, PA — Demetrius Andrade, two-time and undefeated world champion,  showed that he has the drawing power to go along with his unquestioned ring talent as his bout with undefeated Alantez Fox outdrew both the main event and opening bouts in the ratings last Saturday night by over 90,000 viewers on HBO Boxing After Dark®.

The Andrade – Fox bout peeked at 685,000 viewers.  That number outdrew the main event, the WBA World Super Featherweight title bout between Jezreel Corrales & Alberto Machado. That is an impressive number considering the sports viewing competition was incredibly strong.  That competition was headlined by Game 7 of the American League Championship Series (New York Yankees – Houston Astros) as well as two high-profile college football games featuring Penn State and Michigan as well as Notre Dame and USC.

Those games were all still going on when Andrade and Fox walked to the ring but were well over by the time the main event started.

“To have Demetrius pull in that viewership going against The Yankees, Penn State, Notre Dame, Michigan and USC just shows the interest in an American boxer who can be considered one of the best out there.  Those above mentioned teams are most iconic programs and teams in American sports,” said Artie Pelullo, President of Banner Promotions.

Joe DeGuardia, President of Star Boxing said, “I am very pleased with the ratings.  It is an anomaly when the co-feature bout does a higher rating than the main event.  Additionally, considering that Demetrius’ fight competed with significant live sports competition, including game 7 of a fantastic Yankees-Astros series and major college football games, it shows fans are interested in a talented American boxer with US Olympic pedigree.”

LONG ISLAND (October 27, 2017) – In the main event on Saturday, Nov. 11, Daniel “Miracle Man” Jacobs battle undefeated Luis Arias in a twelve-round middleweight bout at NYCB LIVE, home of the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum and televised live on HBO World Championship Boxing beginning at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT.
 
Opening the action-packed HBO telecast will be super lightweight knockout artists Long Island’s own Cletus Seldin and Roberto Ortiz squaring off in a 10-round bout.  In the chief-support bout, exciting heavyweight Jarrell Miller looks to stake his claim on a heavyweight title shot and in his way is Polish giant Mariusz Wach.   As part of the stacked undercard, undefeated New York City police officer Dimash “Lightning” Niyazov (12-0, 5 KOs) will fight in a six-round lightweight bout.
 
DANIEL “Miracle Man” JACOBS
“He has to be super human to beat me and I will be his kryptonite.  I don’t think he has the mentality.  He talks a lot of trash but when you  go in there it’s a different story.  Yeah, you can make it sound good outside the ring – you can trash talk and you can try and hype yourself up but it’s a totally different story once you get inside that ring – you get hit then you realize you are in there with a totally different caliber of fighter.  I am elite compared to the caliber of opponents he has fought in his professional career.  He talks about the amateurs but you can’t talk about amateurs and I don’t know why he’s highlighting his amateur career. I mean, when do we highlight amateur fights at this level – it really doesn’t mean anything now.  There are levels to this game and I am going to show him that on November 11.”
 
JARRELL “Big Baby” MILLER
“All I am focused on right now is Nov. 11th and doing what I do best and that is delivering a knockout when I step back in that ring. I’m very grateful to HBO, Eddie Hearn and Dmitry Salita  for this  opportunity and I will not disappoint. It took a lot of hard work, dedication and sacrifice to get to this point and I didn’t do it alone…my team has been with me and my fans. Big Baby is coming….beware.”
 
DIMASH “Lightning” NIYAZOV
“There are 250 cops in my precinct and about half of them will show up.  This guy (points to friend) is a cop in another precinct and he loves boxing and he will come and he will bring a bunch more.  Every time I fight in New York he brings his cop friends and I bring my cop friends.  Between Long Island and New York City there are 35,000 of us.  Each of the other precincts will have about 20 guys there.  It’s great support.  We are a big family.  It is a dream of mine to walk to the ring with hundreds of cops and just me walking down the middle.
 
“I train every day.  I work night shift from 11:00 pm to 8:00 am.  And now I am here.  I take a little nap after work then I go to the gym.  I think my fight is going to make the card.  I haven’t fought in New York in a long time and I’m very excited about being on this card.  I’ve known Danny since we were 15 training in the Coney Island projects and to see him come up and to become world champion – I am trying to follow his dream.”
 
Tickets for the live event are on sale now and can be purchased at ticketmaster.com, NYCBLIVE.com or by calling 800-745-3000. Tickets can also be purchased at the Ticketmaster Box Office at the Coliseum.

Two-Time World Champion Demetrius Andrade Battles Undefeated Alantez Fox

 

Two-Time World Champion Demetrius Andrade Battles Undefeated Alantez Fox

Saturday, October 21 from Turning Stone Resort Casino in Verona, New York

Televised Live on HBO Boxing After Dark®

 

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

New York, NY. (Sept. 28, 2017) – Undefeated two-time junior middleweight world champion, Demetrius “Boo Boo” Andrade makes his return to HBO® when he takes on undefeated Alantez Fox in a 12 round middleweight bout that will take place on Saturday, October 21st from Turning Stone Resort Casino in Verona, New York.

The bout will be the live co-feature of an HBO Boxing After Dark tripleheader card that will feature Jazreel Corrales defending the WBA World Super Featherweight Title against undefeated Alberto Machado and Ryan Burnett taking on Zhanat Zhakiyanov (tape delay) in a Bantamweight Unification Bout.. The HBO telecast will begin at 10:05 p.m. ET/PT.

The Corrales vs. Machado bout is promoted by Golden Boy Promotions.

The Andrade – Fox bout is promoted by Banner Promotions, Joe DeGuardia’s Star Boxing and A-Team Promotions, in association with DiBella Entertainment.

Andrade of Providence, Rhode Island was a 2008 United Sates Olympian, and the 2007 World Amateur Champion.  His success has continued in the professional ranks, as he has a perfect professional resume with a record of 24-0 with 16 knockouts.

Andrade, 29 years-old captured the WBO World Junior Middleweight crown with a 12-round split decision over fellow Olympian and previously undefeated Vanes Martirosyan on November 9, 2013.  Andrade defended the title with a sensational 7th round stoppage of mandatory challenger Brian Rose.

On March 11, 2017, Andrade became a two-time world champion when he won the WBA World Junior Middleweight Championship with a 12-round split decision over reigning champion Jack Culcay in Ludwigshafen, Germany.

Fox of Forestville, Maryland has a undefeated mark of 23-0-1 with 11 knockouts.

The 25 year-old Fox stands 6’4″, and he has used that height to score impressive victories over Kenneth McNeil, Ronald Montes, Paul Valenzuela Jr.., and previously undefeated Patrick Day.

“First of all I need to thank HBO, and especially Peter Nelson for giving me this tremendous opportunity.  Thanks to him, I get a chance to not only have a great fight on October 21st, but I also get to show my fans on prime time that I’m the best fighter in the junior middleweight and now the Middleweight division, “said Andrade. “I can’t wait for the chance to fight more often and against the very best and thanks to HBO I finally have that chance! And I’m looking forward to giving my fans a great performance and I’m going to show them how much I appreciate their support by giving them a great show!”

“The Olympics were ten years ago.  He is not the same fighter.  I don’t see anything that he will do that can put a loss on my record.  I am going on HBO to put on a boxing exhibition,” said Fox.

“I am very happy for Demetrius to be back in the ring on HBO.  There are a lot of compelling fights that could take place on HBO for Demetrius’ future career,” said Artie Pelullo, President of Banner Promotions.

“We are very pleased to have Demetrius back in the ring on HBO,” said Joe DeGuardia, President of Joe DeGuardia’s Star Boxing.  “I have always felt that Demetrius is one of the best fighters in the world, and I feel he has a very bright future.”

“Alantez Fox is a tall, rangy, powerful, and undefeated middleweight contender,” said Lou DiBella, President of DiBella Entertainment. “Boo Boo Andrade is a great fighter, but we believe that Fox is up to the challenge.” Continue reading

A rough and Frenchman will be making the trip across the Atlantic Ocean in an effort to derail the long awaited return of “The Hebrew Hammer” Cletus Seldin, 19-0 16KO’s (Long Island, NY)  in the main event of Rockin’ Fights 28 on Thursday, September 28th at The Paramount in Huntington, NY.
Star Boxing has just announced that the hard punching Jewish knockout prospect

will be facing former French Jr. Welterweight Champion Renald Garrido of Paris, France in a bout scheduled for 10 rounds in the Jr. Welterweight division.
Garrido’s a veteran of over 36 fights with 19 wins (19-15-2 4KO’s).  He has some impressive upset wins on his record, particularly when traveling to fight hometown favorites.  He has already upset local undefeated fighters Bradley Saunders (in England) and Daouda Sow (in France).  Garrido is much better than his record indicates and he has battled tooth and nail with some of the top Jr. Welterweights around the world including Frankie Gavin, Ceferino Rodriguez, and Serhiy Fedchenko.  Garrido has never been stopped in his entire career of 36 professional bouts.
Garrido has a similar style to Seldin, as he is known for his aggressiveness and non- stop punching which will make for a highly entertaining bout.
Garrido, thrilled to have the chance to topple another top prospect said:  “I am the specialist in beating the undefeated no matter which country I fight.  Prepare for the arrival of the LION and an anthology brawl”.
The Hebrew Hammer Seldin brings a fervent fan base to The Paramount. They have been clamoring for him to get back in the ring as the all action, power punching Jr. Welterweight never fails to thrill his large contingent of fans.
Seldin, when asked about fighting a former French champ and real tough veteran after a one-year layoff said: “This guy is a real scrapper, his style is just like mine and this is going to be a real scrappy and exciting fight for me and the fans”.
Cletus Seldin, more commonly known as the ‘Hebrew Hammer’ was laying a path of destruction on his way to a world championship fight until he was derailed by various aliments.  “The Hammer” is one of the hardest punchers in the division and has drawn sellout crowds to every fight.

Seldin, inactive since June of 2016 due to various medical issues, is now 100% healthy and is chomping at the bit to get back inside the ring.  The former WBC International Silver Super Lightweight Champion will be making his 16th appearance at The Paramount and currently holds a 7 fight knockout streak.
Promoter Joe DeGuardia had these thoughts about the main event “It’s long overdue getting Cletus back in the ring at The Paramount and he certainly has not picked an easy opponent for his return. Garrido can fight and brings it every time he steps into the ring.  This will be a sensational battle and you better get your tickets early because there is no doubt in my mind that we will once again sellout The Paramount on September 28th.”
The undercard will be announced shortly.
