ISSOUF KINDA VS. MIKE ARNAOUTIS TITLE FIGHT SATURDAY NIGHT

NEW YORK, NY (October 11, 2012) Having presented many years of world class musical performances, this Saturday night, OCTOBER 13, the NYCB Theatre at Westbury will play host to “WESTBURY WARS”, a sensational evening of action packed professional boxing promoted by Joe DeGuardia’s Star Boxing.
 
The ten round main event will see undefeated African native, now based in New York City, Issouf Kinda battling former world title challenger and perennial contender “Mighty” Mike Arnaoutis in a bout contested for Kinda’s New York State Junior Welterweight Title.
 
With his sensational boxing skills honed through an illustrious amateur career, the 24-year-old Kinda has impressed the knowledgeable boxing fans in the New York City area since turning professional in 2009.
 
Compiling a record of 14-0-0 (5KO’s), Kinda will be making the first defense of the New York State Title, which he earned with an eight round shutout performance on MAY 2 against Luis Rodriguez at Russo’s On The Bay in Howard Beach, NY.
 
Born in Athens, Greece, Arnaoutis is among the toughest veterans in the junior welterweight division. Included on his ledger are battles with notable world champions and world ranked contenders including Delvin Rodriguez, Victor Ortiz, Danny Garcia, Kendall Holt, Ricardo Torres, Juan Urango and Demetrius Hopkins.
 
Most recently, the 33-year-old Arnaoutis has looked very impressive; winning a unanimous decision over Shakha Moore on FEBRUARY 10 at the Mohegan Sun Casino and stopping Broderick Antoine on MAY 2.
 
Said DeGuardia, ‘There’s been a great buzz about the Kinda/Arnaoutis fight since we announced it. Kinda is a terrific looking prospect with a wealth of potential, however Arnaoutis is a much more experienced veteran who is looking at this as an opportunity to put his name in the mix for bigger fights if he can defeat Kinda. There’s a great deal at stake for both guys.”
 
In the eight round welterweight co-main event at “WESTBURY WARS”, popular undefeated Long Island knockout artist Cletus “The Hebrew Hammer” Seldin will look to stay unbeaten against Chicago based spoiler Carl ‘The Assassin” McNickles.
 
The 26-year-old Seldin, 8-0-0 (5KO’s) has turned heads with his stunning knockouts over the last fifteen months. His last three bouts have ended in the first two rounds, culminating in a brutal first round knockout of heralded Puerto Rican prospect Jonathan Garcia on JULY 28 at the sold out Paramount in Huntington.
 
Sporting a record of 8-3-0 (6KO’s), the 28-year-old McNickles has faced numerous undefeated prospects across the country. In his last outing at Madison Square Garden on MARCH 17, he battled New Jersey’s Danny McDermott over six rounds winning a hard fought decision in a terrific back-and-forth war.
 
“Everyone on Long Island knows about Seldin’s power and how exciting he is to watch but McNickles is very confident and fearless about fighting on the road. We expect fireworks in this bout from the opening bell” said DeGuardia.
 
Also featured in a six round junior welterweight tilt is a clash between Bayan “The Mongolian Mongoose” Jargal and Newburgh, New York native Luis Rodriguez.
 
Currently residing in Arlington, Virginia and sporting a record of 15-3-3 (10KO’s), Jargal looks to get back on the winning track following a ten round decision loss to undefeated prospect Chris Algieri on NOVEMBER 19 at The Paramount in Huntington, New York, a bout which was broadcast internationally on Azteca America.
 
The 24-year-old Rodriguez, 6-5-1 (1KO), has become well known in Puerto Rico and the New York City area for his aggressive, all-action style of fighting.
 
Also appearing at “WESTBURY WARS” is popular Huntington, New York based newcomer Alan Gotay. The 22-year-old made his pro debut on the Star Boxing 20th Anniversary Show on JULY 28 knocking out Ian James in the first round at The Paramount.
 
In a scheduled four junior welterweight bout, Gotay will face off against Alberto Manukyan, 0-1-0, of Jersey City, NJ.
 
Prior to the pro fights, three amateur bouts will kick off the card.
