Star Boxing’s undefeated sensation Zac Dunn just arrived at JFK Airport in New York today from his Australian homeland to begin final preparations for his IBO Super Middleweight championship title defense against Denis “The Momma’s Boy” Douglin on Saturday night, October 24, at The Paramount in Huntington.
Dunn, the just-signed “Wonder from Down Under” will train at the nearby Academy of Boxing, a stone’s throw where he will make his United States debut.
Star Boxing president Joe DeGuardia has announced an action-packed undercard to accompany the world title tilt for the next installment of the Rockin’ Fights 21.
The co-feature will pit undefeated Alicia Napoleon (4-0, 4 KO’s/Lindenhurst, NY) in her Paramount debut against Kita Watkins (7-13, 1 KO/Tyler, TX) for the IWBF Interim Woman’s World Title.
In a battle for Brooklyn bragging rights between two Star Boxing standouts, unbeaten Constantin Bejenaru (9-0, 3 KO’s) will square off against Joel Shojgreen (8-1, 7 KO’s) in an eight-round Cruiserweight contest.
Hicksville’s Anthony Karperis (11-1, 4 KO’s), on the heels of his devastating KO win on the last Rockin’ Fights show, returns in an eight-round Super Lightweight bout against Tyrone Luckey (7-4-2, 5 KO’s/Middletown, NJ).
Queens native and crowd pleaser Danny Gonzalez (9-0, 3 KO’s/Woodhaven, NY) puts his unbeaten streak on the line when he takes on tough Justin Johnson (6-9-4/Pittsburgh, PA) in a Junior Welterweight matchup.
Dunn, ranked #10 by the WBC, has reeled off 18 straight professional victories without defeat, including 15 by way of knockout. Fighting exclusively in Australia as a professional, Dunn will be making his American debut at The Paramount.
Dunn is coming off a snazzy 12-round decision over the well-thought-of Max Bursak, the winner of 31 career fights, to take the vacant IBO title on June 27 to secure the belt at the Royal Exhibition Building in Carlton, Australia. His previous five triumphs were all scintillating knockouts in seven rounds or less. Two ultra-impressive KOs were second round annihilations of Beibi Berrocal, a 14-time winner, on March 6, and Kyung-Suk Kwak on March 16, 2014, setting the stage for Zac’s shot at the title. Dunn did not disappoint the Australian faithful.
Douglin (19-4, 12 KO’s) is a southpaw fighting out of Marlboro, NJ, and comes off two straight knockout victories, his most recent a sixth round KO of Marcos Primera on July 11. The Momma’s Boy has won five of his last six bouts. Douglin captured the first 12 fights of his pro career, mostly in the New York-New Jersey area as a product of Rivera Boxing Gym and Gleason’s Gym in Brooklyn.
