New York, July 5, 2017Following his recent knockout of boxing legend BERNARD HOPKINS, Long Island fan favorite JOE SMITH JR. moved right into the mix in the light heavyweight division, boxing’s deepest and most exciting.Working full-time as a union laborer in the New York City area, Smith (23-1-0, 19 KO’s) will take a short break from wielding the sledgehammer as he finalizes training for his upcoming 10-round showdown with fellow highly ranked contender SULLIVAN BARRERA, (19-1-0, 14 KO’s), on Saturday, July 15 from The Fabulous Forum in Los Angeles and telecast live on HBO’s Boxing After Dark (9:50 p.m. ET/PT).Most recently a new #1 Pound-for-Pound in boxing from the light heavyweight division was heralded as ANDRE WARD defeated SERGEY KOVALEV for the second time on June 17, defending the WBA/IBF/WBO Light Heavyweight Titles. On June 3, longtime WBC Light Heavyweight Champion ADONIS STEVENSON stopped highly ranked contender ANDRZEJ FONFARA.In addition to those two champions the division is filled with world class fighters and highly regarded contenders including ARTUR BETERBIEV, DMITRY BIVOL, OLEKSANDR GVOZDYK and ELEIDER ALVAREZ .”It’s true the division is truly heating up and I’m honored to be a part of it,” said the 27-year-old Smith Jr.

 

“The winner of my upcoming fight moves right into the top of the mix in the division.”  With my last two knockouts I have the full confidence that the sky is the limit for me in this division, I want to achieve my dream of becoming a world champion.”

 

Smith Jr. is promoted by JOE DEGUARDIA’S STAR BOXING who has developed the heavy handed Long Island native over the last few years into a world ranked contender and holder of the WBC International Light Heavyweight Title.

 

“Timing is always very important when bringing along a fighter to a higher level,” said DeGuardia. “We started working together a few years ago and our plan was to continue developing Joe’s talents and present him with the right opportunities for success. This is a formula we’ve used many times in the past in building fighters the right way.”

 

“When the opportunity came to fight Andrzej Fonfara we believed as a team that Joe was ready and he was spectacular in the first round knockout victory. The same with fighting Bernard Hopkins, it was a great opportunity and Joe put on another star making performance.”

 

“With the Sullivan Barrera fight the stakes are even higher but we feel this is another great opportunity for Joe, back on HBO which has built many stars over the last forty years.”

 

Known as “The Common Man”, Irish-American Joe Smith Jr. burst onto the international boxing scene last June, knocking out the highly favored, former world title challenger Andrzej Fonfara in the first round of a nationally televised contest (NBC) from the Pole’s hometown of Chicago.

 

Six months later Smith challenged future Hall of Famer Bernard Hopkins at the Fabulous Forum and live on HBO. Dominating the legend on December 17 through the first seven rounds, the construction union laborer Smith drilled Hopkins to the canvas and out of the ring earning the knockout in the eighth round.  Sullivan Barrera is riding a two-bout knockout streak with victories over Paul Parker on April 15 and Vyacheslav Shabaranskyy on December 16, 2016.

 

His only loss was to light heavyweight champion Andre Ward by unanimous decision in March 2016, and Barrera is considered one of the top fighters in the stacked division.  Smith vs. Barrera is presented by Joe DeGuardia’s Star Boxing and Main Events. This fight is part of a sensational triple header featuring Miguel Berchelt vs. Takashi Miura, a 12-round fight for the WBC Super Featherweight World Championship and the WBA Super Featherweight World Championship with Jezreel “El Invisible” Corrales defending his title against Robinson “Robin Hood” Castellanos.  Berchelt-Miura is presented by Golden Boy Promotions in association with Zanfer Promotions and Teiken Promotions.

Terrell Bostic (3-0 1KO Wyandanch, NY) facing off against Alexander Picot ( 2-3-1 Hartford, CT) in a 6 round Jr. Welterweight fight.

Bostic will also be making his 4th appearance at the Paramount and is also coming off a thrilling victory on March 24th against Grashino Yancy.  Bostic is facing a very dangerous opponent, Alexander Picot.  Picot has faced top prospects Richard Wiggins and Irving Torres, and has a reputation for always coming to fight hard.  This will be another stern test for Bostic, a highly regarding prospect.

Dan Cion (0-1 Farmingdale, NY) will be stepping in against pro debuter Abner Guadalupe of the Bronx, NY. Cion went to war with Vincenzo D’Angelo in his pro debut and the Boxer/MMA fighter gave it his all although being defeated.  Guadalupe is managed by the former NY State Commissioner and current commentator, Randy Gordon, and promises to make his pro debut a successful one.

Promoter Joe DeGuardia had these comments about the undercard, “We have again stacked our undercard with exciting, competitive bouts between hungry young pugilists.  Unfortunately, due to the new insurance and medicals rules in place in New York which are very cost prohibitive to all of us in New York, we can only put on 5 fights but each and every one of them will have you on your feet cheering, as that has become the tradition here at the Paramount”.

The main event is a fantastic one where Cletus “The Hebrew Hammer” Seldin (19-0 16 KO’s Long Island, NY) takes on former world title challenger “Mighty” Mike Arnaoutis (26-10-2 13 KO’s Atlantic City, NJ) in what shapes up to be the most experienced and dangerous opponent the “Hebrew Hammer” has ever faced.  The show will be the 27th edition of Joe DeGuardia’s acclaimed “Rockin’ Fights” series.

NEW YORK – May 12, 2017

“FIGHTNIGHT LIVE” ON FACEBOOK OPENS WITH KNOCKOUT NUMBERS

 

Boxing, MMA streaming series debut draws 40,000 views, and still climbing.

The reviews are in, and the numbers are in, and the decision is unanimous: the debut of FIGHTNIGHT LIVE, on Facebook Live Thursday evening from Mohegan Sun in Connecticut, was a KO victory.

 

Watchers of the stream, which drew 37,000-plus “uniques” on fight night, and continues to draw clicks, enjoyed a Star Boxing® main event topped by a junior middleweight scrap between vet Delvin Rodriguez and up ‘n comer Courtney Pennington.

 

More numbers: Almost 3,000 comments were shared by watchers during the four plus hour show, which provided incredible value for fans of the sweet science. Fans said things like, “This is the future of the sport, live FREE streaming.” “This stream is giving expose to young guns that would not ordinarily get it on broadcast TV!” “After tonight’s streaming many will talk about it and many more will watch if there’s a next time, this is the bomb!”

“I was inundated with complimentary texts, emails and calls almost as soon as the stream started, and it was a lot of fun watching the numbers swell from 27 views at the start of the broadcast to 40,000-plus by now,” said Mark Fratto, Principal of Linacre Media. “Like many others, we believe that the present and future of ‘televised’ boxing, MMA, Muay Thai and really all live sports is digital. Further, by putting these events on Facebook we’re providing an interactive environment for fight fans to not only view the events, but to connect with each other and provide their own real-time commentary during the bouts. We believe in high-quality, cost-efficient production that can give fans free access to hundreds of global, national and regional live fight nights without breaking the bank of the promoter and also without sacrificing what sports fans have come to expect from their viewing experience – multiple camera angles, graphics, replays and behind-the-scenes access and interviews. We don’t want traditional fans, digital customers and cord-cutters to be relegated to trying to watch other spectators’ live feeds off their cell phones.”

Promoter Joe DeGuardia went on air during the main event. He was visibly impressed and shared his enthusiasm while watching Pennington spring the upset.

“This has been incredible,” DeGuardia said. “It is great that fans will now be able to see more fights on a platform with massive reach. This is good for everyone and a perfect way for fighters to expand their fan base. I am pleased to be involved.”

Said boxing fan-favorite Ray Flores, who sat in the blow-by-blow chair, “It was an honor to  be a part of FIGHTNIGHT LIVE and work with such talented individuals. I’m extremely excited about what the future has in store for the series. More than anything, thank you to all the fight fans who tuned, shared it, and commented. Fan interaction and world class fights is the basis for FIGHTNIGHT LIVE. I cannot wait for the next show!”

“We want to have something of a distinct identity,” said analyst Michael Woods, who publishes NYFights.com and does the TALBOX podcast for Everlast. “We want watchers to be able to interact with us, be part of the show, have a voice. We also want to have fun, keep it loose at times, as well. We will be incorporating that interactivity even more going forward. This series aims to be and I think is well on its way to establishing a paradigm in the space.”

“We firmly believe this new series is beneficial to all parties involved. More exposure for the sport and for the fighters,” said Fratto, whose production services company does 200 live events each year.  “This production model is designed to be lean and cost-effective. And that enables us to cover more events, and with Facebook, we know we are being seen world wide and on a platform with a great deal of potential.”

Future FIGHTNIGHT LIVE dates will be announced in the coming weeks.

STAR BOXING TURNS BACK THE CLOCK 
AT THE PARAMOUNT HUNTINGTON, NY
RESULTS FROM SENSATIONAL SHOW

GLORY DAYS OF BOXING AND BATTLING NY INSURANCE LAW

St. Nick,s Arena, The Hippodrome, Eastern Parkway, Ridgewood Grove, these were the legendary fight clubs that made New York the mecca of Boxing back in the day and last night before a SOLD OUT and wild SRO crowd at The Paramount in Huntington, NY, promoter Joe DeGuardia of Star Boxing put on a show that brought back the glory days of boxing.

In a night that highlighted loss of ‘club shows’ in NY, Joe DeGuardia became the first promoter to run a such a professional boxing show in NY since August of last year. DeGuardia did so in spite of the tremendous increase in costs due to the law passed at the end of the summer which crippled NY boxing for the past 7 months. DeGuardia was out to make a point how vital these types of shows are in providing starving New York fighters and local fans with activity. It was like DeGuardia put back on the gloves he used when he became a NY Golden Gloves champion in 1988 as DeGuardia took on the new outrageous Insurance rules and costs that were implemented by the State of New York. DeGuardia scored a knockout by delivering a show to remember.

MAIN EVENT CAPS A SENSATIONAL SHOW

The main event saw Hicksville’s NY Anthony “Showtime” Karperis ironically defend his NY Jr. Welterweight title against Brooklyn’s Scott “Bang Bang” Burrell in a scheduled 10 round bout. The bout electrified the crowd which had already witnessed a thrilling night of undercard action.

Both fighters fought extremely well over the first 3 rounds with Burrell being the aggressor while Karperis moved smartly while landing crisp counter punches. The action was fast and furious and the SRO was so loud you couldn’t hear yourself talk.

After 3 rounds the fight was still up for grabs but that all changed at the 2:00 mark of round 4 when Karperis landed a clean right left combination which clearly had Burrell wobbled. Burrell stood his ground and fought back bravely but Karperis seized the moment and went for the knockout pinning Burrell against the ropes. At this point the crowd was in a frenzy as the 2 warriors exchanged fiercely. Then Karperis landed a monstrous right hand followed by a blistering barrage of punches on Burrell which caused referee Pat Sullivan to step in at 2:58 of the 4th round. It was a thrilling finish. Burrell and his corner, to their credit wanted to continue the fight, exhibiting the warrior desire that all fighters had in this thrilling show. Karperis improves to 14-2-1 5KO’s while Burrell drops to 12-3 8KO’s.

With a sold-out crowd and Karperis’ electric performance, DeGuardia is one step closer to developing his next local star as Karperis ticket appeal is rivaling that of other graduates of Star Boxing’s famous Rockin’ Fights series at the Paramount, including Chris Algieri, Joe Smith Jr. and Cletus Seldin.

The sold out crowd also saw a star-studded audience including conqueror of the legend Bernard Hopkins, Joe Smith Jr. who was there to support his Star Boxing team and home base. Joe Smith Jr., who is becoming a celebrity in NY, even though embracing the ‘Common Man’ moniker, received a special watch from Star Boxing and Icelink for his tremendous 2016 where he was considered by many to be Fighter of Year. The Hebrew Hammer, Cletus Seldin, another Star Boxing banger and Paramount favorite was also in attendance.

Doing the commentary was former Golden Gloves champion and star of ‘the biggest loser’ tv show Cara Castronuova and Showtime commentator and former world champion Paulie Malignaggi and Hall of Fame HBO commentator, the lovable Harold Lederman.

UNDERCARD ALSO THRILLS SOLD-OUT SRO CROWD

The semi final 8 round Jr. Welterweight matchup saw Woodhaven’s Danny Gonzalez keep his undefeated record intact by defeating a tough Jerome Rodriguez who hails from Allentown, PA. Gonzalez fought his usual non stop action fight and dominated the tough Allentown fighter. Gonzalez swept the scorecards of all 3 judges by margins of 80-72, 79-73, 79-73 and improved to 13-0-1 5KO’S while Rodriguez drops to 7-6-3 2KO’s.

Dean “Bad Newz” Burrell, twin brother of Scott, scored a shocking and clean knockout of local favorite Johnny “Hitman” Hernadez in a Lightweight bout that was scheduled for 6 rounds. The southpaw Burrell landed a crushing straight left to the Huntington native dropping him in vicious fashion for the 10 count. Burrell improves to 12-1 9KO’s while Hernandez drops to 8-2 1KO.

Welterweight Tyrone James, 4-0 2KO’s, Elmont, NY had a tougher than expected time with Alabama’s Quincy Brown, 1-5 1KO but prevailed on the judges scorecards over 4 rounds by scores on 40-36, and 39-37 twice.

The opening bout set the tone for the night as Wyandanch, NY Lightweight Terrell Bostic improved to 3-0 with a hard fought victory over Staten Island’s Grashino Yancy, 2-2 1KO by scores of 39-37 on two cards and an even 38-38 on the third securing the majority decision for Bostic in the 4 round Lightweight contest.

DEGUARDIA HOPES TO IGNITE FIRE

Promoter Joe DeGuardia had this to say about the evening’s events: “This was our 26th show at The Paramount and despite the virtually impossible restrictions placed on all of us because of these new laws in NY, we pulled it off. This was a thrilling night of action, with an electric atmosphere and sensational matches. Every single fighter on the show came in tremendous shape and every one of them fought their hearts outs. I applaud every fighter that was on the show and they are all welcome back. I also thank our fans at The Paramount, who are the greatest fans anywhere and turned out in record numbers for this show. I love their enthusiasm. I made my point how important these types of shows are to our great sport and NYS. I am hopeful that Albany has taken notice and does something about this crippling and illogical law so that other promoters throughout New York will be able to also resume doing these types of shows. I am also glad we had the support of many of our fighters, including Paramount stars such as Joe Smith Jr and Cletus Seldin and other boxing luminaries including Paulie and Harold, both of whom contributed their sensational broadcasting skills to our taped show”.

ZAC DUNN DEFENDS BRITISH COMMONWEALTH TITLE 
AGAINST DAVE BROPHY

New York, March 15, 2017

Undefeated Star Boxing® British Empire Commonwealth champion Zac Dunn 23-0 18KO’S Melbourne, AU will defend his title on March 17th against Scotland’s Dave Brophy 18-1-1 2KO’S at The Melbourne Pavilion in Flemington, Victoria. The bout is scheduled for 12 rounds.

The exciting Australian Super Middleweight was once again very impressive in his last outing as he dominated Liam Cameron on route to capturing the vacant British Empire Commonwealth Super Middleweight crown. That bout was on November 25, 2016 at the same Melbourne Pavilion.

Dunn is currently rated #5 by the WBC, IBF, and WBO and has become a big attraction in his native Australia consistently selling out his fights. Dunn has fought his last 4 fights in his native Australia and has kept up a very busy schedule this being his 5th fight in a little more than a year’s time.

Brophy, a tough challenger, is coming off two consecutive victories after suffering his only loss to former world champion George Groves April 9th of 2016.

Dunn promoter Joe DeGuardia had this to say about Zac’s upcoming fight “Zac Dunn is a throwback fighter who loves to stay active. He is defending his British Empire title for the 1st time against a highly skilled boxer in Dave Brophy. The fans in Australia have been great supporting Zac’s fights and are getting bigger each time out. I think Zac is on the verge of a major world championship fight but first he must take care of business on March 17th which I fully expect him to do”.

In another interesting local matchup, homegrown Huntington NY’s exciting Lightweight, Johnny “Hitman” Hernandez, 8-1 1KO takes on Dean “Badnewz” Burrell, 11-1 8KO’S, Brooklyn, NY in a 6 round contest.

Dean is the twin brother of main eventer Scott. Both Dean and Scott are highly educated college graduates. Johnny Hernandez has developed a large following at his hometown arena, but Dean and Scott expect to bring their loyal Brooklyn fans as well.

Also scheduled to appear are undefeated Welterweight Long Islanders Tyrone James, 3-0 (2 KO’s), of Elmont, NY taking on Alabama’s Quincy Brown, 1-4 in a 4 round Welterweight fight and Central Islip’s Terrell Bostic, 2-0 1KO squaring off against Brooklyn’s Grashino Yancy, 2-1 (1KO) in a 4 round Lightweight fight.

Promoter Joe DeGuardia had these comments about the undercard “I am pleased we are back at the Paramount. This is old school boxing, local fighters from the New York area stepping in the ring with each other. We have a fan-friendly main event with real local interest when Karperis and Scott Burrell battle for the NY Jr. Welter title. My matchmaker, Ron Katz, promises these 5 exciting match-ups will be ‘Paramount Punches in Bunches’, which is what our fans have become accustomed to at the Paramount. It will be another special night of fights at The Paramount on Friday night March 24th”.

DEMETRIUS ANDRADE NOW 2X WORLD CHAMP
Captures WBA Super Welterweight Crown

New York, March 12, 2017

On Saturday night in Ludwigshafen, Germany, Demetrius Andrade became a two-time undefeated World Champion by defeating defending champion Jack Culcay.   With the victory Andrade won the WBA Super Welterweight crown.

Andrade won by matching scores of 116-112 on two of the judge’s scorecards, but the third judge incredibly had the fight for Culcay by a score of 115-114. Andrade was the superior boxer and controlled the bout with fast combos to Culcay’s head and body.   While often Andrade used an effective jab to keep his distance, the bout became a spirited battle with Culcay trying to bull his way in and Andrade often answering back with punches in bunches.

Andrade utilized both physical and superior skill advantages throughout the fight as he outfought Culcay for most of the 12 rounds but it was a tough and grueling battle as Culcay (22-2, 11 KO’s) and Andrade (24-0, 16 KO’s) both showed heart and determination in numerous entertaining exchanges that thrilled the sold-out crowd.

Andrade set a fast pace from the opening bell using his full arsenal throughout the fight, keeping the game Culcay at bay for most of the rounds. Culcay to his credit never stopped trying and even engaged Andrade in a toe-to-toe battle in the 12th and final round, but Andrade stood his ground and usually had an answer for Culcay’s advances.

Andrade stated: “I did everything I needed to do.  I came to German and took the title.  Culcay fought like a champion but I was the better man. It feels great.  I never lost my belt in the ring, so it feels like ‘and still, and the new, and still undefeated world champion…”

When asked about future plans, Andrade said: “I just want to fight the best.  Line them up, and I will knock all the champions down”.

Andrade’s Promoter Joe DeGuardia had these comments after the fight, “It was a very exciting fight that both should be proud of as they both showed the determination and will to win that a world championship inspires. Demetrius has shown he is willing to fight anybody, anywhere, to show the world he is the best.  We are looking forward to bringing Demetrius back home and have him fight the very best fighters in the world.”
Demetrius Andrade is co-promoted by Joe DeGuardia’s Star Boxing and Banner Promotions .
