Maddalone Says He’s ‘More than Ready’ for May 11th Showdown vs. Undefeated Richard Carmack at the Paramount

by on May.06, 2013, under Boxing News


NEW YORK: (May 6, 2013) Long Island fan favorite and perrienal contender Vinny Maddalone is in final preparations for his scheduled ten round heavyweight clash on SATURDAY, May 11 against undefeated prospect Richard Carmack of Kansas City, Missouri in the main event of “ROCKIN FIGHTS 8″ at The Paramount in Huntington, New York.

Presented by Joe DeGuardia’s Star Boxing, advance tickets for “ROCKIN FIGHTS 8″, priced at $50, $100, $150 and $200 are now on sale through Ticketmaster, (, 800-745-3000) or through The Paramount Box Office, (631) 673-7300 in addition to the Star Boxing Office, (718) 823-2000 or on their website,

“This is a terrific opportunity for me, while I haven’t fought at The Paramount yet, the Star Boxing events there are always sold out and it’s a great atmosphere to fight in” said Maddalone. “It’s only 25 minutes from my house and I’m expecting a great deal of support” said the Queens native.

Following an extensive workout days before the fight, Maddalone spoke about the Carmack showdown and the state of the heavyweight division.

“The heavyweight division has had a great deal of focus on it right night. There are numerous fighters making names for themselves, Tyson Fury, David Price and Tony Thompson among them. I look at Pianeta who is fighting Wladimir Klitschko and I think why can’t that be me.”

“I’ve seen some tapes of Carmack, he’s a big kid, but he also has pretty good hand speed and solid skills, he’s not going to stand right in front of me. It’s a big opportunity but I’m more than ready, I’ve trained nine weeks for this fight” continued Maddalone, who since 1999 has used the Theme From Rocky as his walk in music.

Said DeGuardia; “Vinny is always an exciting fighter to watch. With him fighting an undefeated heavyweight, and with this fight taking place at the Paramount, it should be even more exciting to watch. Be sure to join us for another great night at The Paramount in Huntington.”

“ROCKIN FIGHTS 8″ is co-headlined by a sensational eight round light heavyweight bout between undefeated prospect Yathomas Riley and Buffalo based veteran Lionell Thompson.

Featured on the undercard are local prospects Alan Gotay and Anthony Karperis in separate bouts along with pro debuting Dave Meloni of Westbury, New York.
