FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
BRONX, NY (February 3, 2012) – Star Boxing’s undefeated junior welterweight prospect Raymond “Tito” Serrano takes on dangerous Kenny Abril in the 10-round co-feature February 10 on ESPN Friday Night Fights live from Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Connecticut.
The action-packed Feb. 10 show is being presented by Joe DeGuardia’s Star Boxing. Serrano (17-0, 8 KOs), fighting out of Philadelphia, faces another stiff test in former New York State title-holder Abril (11-4-1, 6 KOs), of Rochester (NY). An impressive victory could propel Serrano into a regional title fight. Already ranked No. 11 by the World Boxing Association (“WBA), the talented 22-year-old is also rated in the top 10 by the NABF (#5), USBA (#6) NABO (#9) and WBA #15.
The headliner is a 10-round battle between undefeated 2008 U.S. Olympian Demetrius “Boo Boo” Andrade (15-0, 10 KOs) and former USBA champion Derek “Pooh” Ennis (23-3-1, 13 KOs) for the vacant North American Boxing Organization (“NABO”) junior middleweight title. Former World amateur champion Andrade – WBO #9, WBC & IBF #13 and WBA #15 – fights out of nearby Providence, while IBF #9 Ennis is from Philadelphia.
A strong undercard features past and future champions and contenders, as well as some of the most promising prospects on the East Coast.
Former USBA & NABO light welterweight champion “Mighty” Mike Arnaoutis (22-7-2, 10 KOs) returns against crowd-pleasing veteran Shaka Moore (11-16-3, 2 KOs), of Norwalk (CT), in what promises to be a very entertaining six-round bout.
Star Boxing’s undefeated super featherweight prospect Emanuel Gonzalez (9-0, 7 KOs) puts his perfect record on the line against upset-minded Jesus Bayron (5-3-1, 4 KOs) in a six-round match. A six-round super featherweight battle between East Hartford favorite Joseph “Chip” Perez (6-1, 2 KOs) and unbeaten Danny Valle (5-0, 3 KOs), who is also from the Bronx, is a match-up of two young prospects.
Also fighting on the undercard in separate four-round bouts is a pair of promising Connecticut boxers. New Haven super middleweight Charles Foster (1-0) tangles with Queens veteran Borngood Washington. Waterbury’s gifted junior welterweight Jair Ramos (1-0) is also scheduled to appear on the card.
