Joe “The Irish Bomber” Smith Jr Headlines Rockin’ Fights 20

Smith Jr Headlines Rockin' Fights 20
Sept. 2….Bronx, NY   Joe DeGuardia’s Star Boxing presents another installment of the popular “Rockin’ Fights” series Friday, September 11th, at The Paramount in Huntington, NY.
Headlining once again will be the hard hitting, hard charging, Joe “The Irish Bomber” Smith Jr. (18-1 15KO’s), Mastic, NY taking on veteran spoiler Dion Savage, (12-7 6KO’s), Flint, MI in a scheduled 10 round Light Heavyweight matchup.
Smith, who returns to The Paramount, is coming off a thrilling 2nd round destruction of Cory Cummings on April 18th that had the sellout crowd in a frenzy as both fighters traded bombs from the opening bell.  Smith eventually got to Cummings dropping him 3 times en route to the stoppage win.  Smith, a member of Local 66 Laborers Union, has developed a huge fan base since making The Paramount his home base.  He is trained and managed by Jerry and Phil Capobianco and faces his most experienced opponent in Dion Savage.
Savage, who hails from Flint, MI, has fought some of the top fighters in the world including current Light Heavyweight champion Adonis Stevenson, as well as top prospects Jesse Hart, Ronald Gavril, and Will Rosinsky.  Savage is a crowd pleaser like Smith and has been training very hard for this opportunity and promises to upset the hometown favorite.
Promoter Joe DeGuardia had this to say about “Rockin’ Fights 20” main event, “I’m very excited to once again feature Joe Smith Jr. at The Paramount on September 11th.  Joe is quickly becoming one of the most exciting fighters in the world and a must see attraction.  I know Joe and Dion will put up the kind of fight our loyal fans at The Paramount have come accustomed to seeing”.
Featured on the undercard in an 8 round bout will be Hicksville Jr. Welterweight Anthony Karperis taking on rugged Mexican warrior Jose Morales.  Huntington Featherweight Johnny Hernandez looks to rebound from his first defeat as he battles Mexico’s Hilario Medina in a 6 round fight, New Hyde Park Jr. Middleweight Rich Neves returns to The Paramount taking on Brooklyn’s Courtney Pennington in a 6 round matchup, and rounding out the card will be the first Female fight ever at The Paramount featuring Brooklyn’s Ronica Jeffrey going up against Mexico’s Celene Roman in a 6 round Jr. Lightweight fight.
