First Fight at the Quincy Armory Begins at 6:30 PM
New York, NY/Quincy, Mass. (11/26/14) – Tonight, DiBella Entertainment’s (DBE) undefeated world-ranked junior lightweight contender and New England fan-favorite Ryan “Polish Prince” Kielczweski, 20-0 (4 KOs), fights in his hometown of Quincy, Mass., for the first time as a professional. Headlining the card, held at the Quincy Armory and promoted by Chris Traietti, in association with New England Fights and DiBella Entertainment, Kielczweski will face off against Ernesto Guerrero, of Agua Prieta, Sonora, Mexico, in an eight-round junior lightweight contest.
The popular 25-year-old Kielczweski, now rated #6 by the WBA at junior lightweight, had success as an amateur, twice winning gold at the New England Golden Gloves and silver at the 2008 National Golden Gloves. Culminating his amateur career with a stellar 118-26 record, Kielczweski turned pro in 2008 on a DiBella Entertainment Broadway Boxing event. After earning eight consecutive victories, the “Polish Prince” signed a promotional contract with DBE in 2010. Read the rest of this entry “
MIAMI – A fractured thumb that forced the cancellation of his scheduled September 29th fight with veteran Johnathan Banks (29-2-1, 19 KOs) may prove to have had a silver lining for 5-time world light heavyweight champion and 1996 U.S. Olympian Antonio “Magic Man” Tarver (30-6, 21 KOs).
The determined and still dangerous southpaw, who turned 46 this past Friday, squares-off Dec. 11 against Banks in a 10-round heavyweight fight, on a Goossen Promotions card, airing live on ESPN2 and ESPN Deportes from Pechanga Resort & Casino in Temecula, California. Read the rest of this entry “
MONTREAL (Nov. 25, 2014) — Jean Bédard, the president of InterBox, announced that the NABF Light Heavyweight Champion, Jean Pascal (29-2-1, 17 KOs), will combat Argentina’s Roberto Bolonti (35-3, 24 KOs), instead of Donovan George (25-4-2, 22 K-.O.) next December 6, at the Bell Centre. This decision was taken after careful consideration following long negotiations with Donovan’s team. Boxing fans will also be thrilled by the undercard, which features locals Shiller Hyppolite (13-1-0, 9 K-.O.), Steven Butler (8- 0-0, 7 K-.O) and Ulysse Jr (4-0-0, 3 K-.O), among others.
Early on in the re-negotiations, InterBox inquired about Bolonti’s interest in going up against Pascal, so Bolonti’s team has been ready from the beginning – only awaiting a positive response from InterBox.
