INFO:
STAR BOXING brings championship boxing to Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, CT on Saturday, November 25 with two separate Championship Bouts along with a thrilling undercard of 6 additional fights.
WBC International and WBC Continental Americas Cruiserweight Champion CONSTANTIN BEJENARU, (12-0, 3KO’S), of Brooklyn, NY defends his titles against #1 ranked mandatory contender THABISO “The Rock” MCHUNU, (18-3, 13KO’S) of Kato Ridge, South Africa, in the ten round main event.
Undefeated DANNY “EL GALLO” GONZALEZ (Woodhaven NY, 14-0 5KOs) will put his perfect record on the line against highly regarded DANNY “DANNY O” O’CONNOR (Framingham MA, 28-3 10KOs) in a 10-round bout for the vacant WBC International Silver Super Lightweight Title in the co-featured title bout on the card.
Headlining his first main event, Bejenaru is coming off two victories seen on the popular Showtime series ShoBox: The New Generation, over previously undefeated contenders Stivens Bujaj and Alexey Zubov.   A native of the Eastern European country, Moldova, Bejenaru is a quick handed aggressive fighter.  He captured both vacant WBC Cruiserweight Championships (International and Continental Americas) with his dominant victory against Bujaj.
Mchunu is no stranger to big fights having challenged Oleksandr Usyk for the WBO World Cruiserweight Title last year.  While Mchunu fell short in that world championship effort, he has since come back with a recent victory in South Africa to secure the mandatory challenger position. Mchunu holds a victory over highly regarded Eddie Chambers which also took place at Mohegan Sun Arena in 2013.  Mchunu will be coming all the way from his home in South Africa for this coveted title opportunity.
Undefeated Danny Gonzalez has been attracting the attention of fans in and out of the ring. Maintaining a very busy 2017, Gonzalez will look to cap off his year with a WBC title in the co-featured matchup.

O’Connor, an Irish-American amateur star, has enjoyed success in the pros as well, beating the likes of former WBC Continental Americas Champion Michael Clark and former WBC World title challenger Vivian Harris. He comes into Mohegan Sun boasting an impressive pro record and two fight winning streak including a win over another previously undefeated prospect.
