STAR BOXING FOURSOME OF BEJENARU, ALGIERI, SMITH, JR. AND DUNN IN APRIL BATTLEFIELD FOR JOE DEGUARDIA

New York, April 6Joe DeGuardia’s Star Boxing will feature non stop action during a three-week period from April 15 through April 30, including three main events and a pair of nationally televised affairs which will have fight fans on the edge of their seats. The April calendar is a full and impressive one for the quartet of  world class fighters promoted by the president and founder of the Bronx-based promotion.
The flurry of activity starts with the back-to-back televised events on major networks on consecutive nights. The Star Boxing battles begin on Friday night, April 15, when DeGuardia’s undefeated prospect Constantin Bejenaru (10-0, 4 KOs) squares off against fellow unbeaten Alexey Zubov (10-0, 6 KOs) in a 10-round cruiserweight contest, a co-featured bout on the popular SHOWTIME series ShoBox: The New Generation at 10 p.m. ET/PT from the Turning Stone Resort Casino in Verona, New York. Undefeated RussianNikolay Potapov (14-0, 6 KOs) takes on Stephon Young (14-0-2, 6 KOs) in the main event.
Twenty-four hours later, On Saturday night, April 16, DeGuardia heads back down state when his former world champion and Pride of Huntington, Long Island, Chris Algieri (21-2, 8 KOs) returns to Barclays Center in Brooklyn, squaring off against the undefeated former U.S. Olympian Errol Spence, Jr., (19-0, 16 KOs) in the Premier Boxing Champions main event televised in primetime nationally by NBC.
Algieri, the former WBO World super lightweight titlist, is coming off a thrilling unanimous decision victory over Erik Bone on December 5 at Barclays. Airtime is at 8:30 p.m. Barclays was the scene of the Algieri’s greatest triumph to date when he rose to prominence in June 2014, upsetting Ruslan Provodnikov for the super lightweight world title, which earned him a title chance at Manny Pacquiao in November, 2014.
“It’s great to be doing another event in Brooklyn at Barclays Center with Chris Algieri headlining on NBC,” says DeGuardia. “This marks the fourth appearance by Chris at the Barclays Center and I expect another exciting performance as he takes on the very dangerous and undefeated former U.S. Olympian, Errol Spence, on April 16.”
Next up is Joe Smith, Jr. (20-1, 16 KOs) headlining on Saturday night, April 23, in the 23rd renewal of DeGuardia’s intensely-popular Rockin’ Fights series at The Paramount in Huntington, NY. The “Irish Bomber” will look to make a statement for world title contention to the home crowd against Brazilian bomber Fabiano Pena (16-4-1, 12 KOs), a winner of two straight, in a 10-round light heavyweight affair.  Smith has traveled a similar course as Algieri, a Long Island product emerging out of Rockin’ Fights as a top contender in his weight class. Smith was a big winner at Barclays on December 5, notching a 10-round unanimous decision over Will Rosinsky in alight heavyweight contest. Fighting out of Mastic, Smith is a Union 66 laborer (concrete) in between fights.
The April showers wrap up for Star Boxing when unbeaten Aussie standout Zac Dunn (20-0, 16 KOs) puts his untarnished record and WBC International Silver Super Middleweight title on the line on his home turf in Australia at The Melbourne Pavilion, taking on always-dangerous veteran Les Sherrington (35-8, 19 KOs) on Saturday, April 30. The “Dynamo” from Down Under won his U.S. debut last October under the Star Boxing banner, and now makes his second straight appearance on Australian soil in quest of his 21st straight victory.
DeGuardia’s Star Boxing contingent, along with the previously mentioned quartet, includes: former champion Demetrius Andrade, and ring standouts Cletus Seldin, Joshua Clottey, and Yuniesky Gonzalez.
