"FEARLESS" TOVAR HEADS TO NEW YORK TO BATTLE ALGIERI SATURDAY NIGHT

NEW YORK  (July 26, 2012) From deep in the heart of Texas, Raul Tovar heads to New York City today to clash with “The Fighting Pride of Huntington”, Chris Algieri this Saturday night, July 28th at Star Boxing’s “ROCKIN FIGHTS 4” at The Paramount in Huntington, New York.
 
“I’m ready for war, I have no fear whatsoever about coming to Algieri’s hometown for this fight. I’ve trained hard in the South Texas heat and I can’t wait to fight this guy,” said the Mission, Texas native.
 
Sporting a record of 10-5-1 with four knockouts, Tovar will challenge the undefeated Algieri, 14-0-0 (7KO’s) in the main event of the six-bout action packed card.
 
Continued Tovar, “I’ve seen a couple of Algieri’s fights, he’s more of a technical fighters but not very powerful. I’m stronger and I’ve fought much better opposition, this guy doesn’t intimidate me at all.”
 
“I know the deal, I’m the guy coming to the undefeated prospect’s hometown so I have a lot working against me, but that motivates me more. Once we touch gloves it doesn’t matter how packed the place is with his fans or where were fighting, I’m going to get after him,” continued Tovar.
 
The 23-year-old Tovar is looking to stay in the win column, riding a two-bout streak, most recently dominating DeShaun Williams on May 19th towards a unanimous decision in Pharr, Texas.
 
Stated Joe DeGuardia, President of Star Boxing, “I’m happy to hear about Tovar’s attitude for the fight. Chris has drawn packed houses for the last three shows at The Paramount and the fans are going to see a terrific night of boxing on Saturday night.”
 
As he headed to the airport on Thursday morning Tovar finished by saying, “I ran fifteen miles yesterday in the South Texas heat, I’ve been training everyday for two months down here for this fight. Can’t wait for Saturday night.”
