NEW YORK CITY, August 18, 2013 — The August 19 launch of Golden Boy Live! has the boxing world buzzing as a fresh era of Monday night boxing kicks off on America’s new sports network FOX Sports 1, but fans in attendance at the Best Buy Theater in New York City will get even more compelling action with the addition of 2012 United States Olympian Terrell Gausha and promising up and comer Emmanuel Gonzalez to the undercard.

In the co-main event, unbeaten Bronx junior middleweight Eddie Gomez (14-0, 9 KO’s) faces Philadelphia’s Steven Upsher Chambers (24-2-1, 6 KO’s). Plus, 2012 United States Olympian and undefeated Staten Island native Marcus Browne (5-0, 5 KO’s) will face Monroe, Louisiana’s Robert Hill (1-1). (continue reading…)
