JAMES-WILLIAMS ABO NORTH AMERICA SUPER WELTERWEIGHT TITLE & TOUSSAINT-GAMBARDELLA SUPER WELTRWEIGHT TILT SET TO BE CHIEF SUPPORT
Long Island, New York (March 16, 2022) – Extremely limited tickets remain to Star Boxing’s “Rockin’ Fights” 41 on March 18th live from The Paramount in Huntington, New York. Just two nights separate us from an electric atmosphere as fans will pour into The Paramount for a stellar night of fights.
In the main event, #6 world rated (WBA) super bantamweight and current NABA Champion, OLEH “UKRAINIAN PITBULL” DOVHUN (Pittsburgh, PA by way of Stebnyk, Ukraine 13-0 5KO’s) puts both his undefeated record and title on the line against Belgian bruiser, GERAM ELOYAN (Brussels, Belgium, 7-2-1 6KO’s). With a victory, Dovhun will push for a top 5 world rating, with a WBA world title shot within his reach.
On the undercard, fan favorite undefeated super welterweight, TYRONE “PRETTY BOY” JAMES (Elmont, NY 11-0 8KO’s) makes his much-anticipated return to the ring. Jumping right back into the fire, James is set to take on his toughest test to date, CES promoted, JIMMY “QUIET STORM” WILLIAMS (New Haven, CT 18-6-2 6KO’s) who is recently earned a major victory over former world champion Yuri Foreman. The two will battle over 8 rounds for the ABO North America Super Welterweight Title.
In 6 rounds of super welterweight action, WENDY “HAITIAN FIRE” TOUSSAINT (Huntington, NY, 12-1 5KO’s) returns against TRAVIS GAMBARDELLA (Revere, MA 7-1-2 3KO’s). Toussaint had his undefeated streak come to an end in 2020 when he took top rated contender Charles Conwell into deep water on Showtime, before falling short, suffering the first loss of his career. Toussaint learned from this experience and is prepared to climb back the ladder at 154 lbs in a big way.
In a trio of four round bouts, New York City fireman, LOU “IL MARTELLO” MAIETTA (Bronx, NY 1-0-1) will showdown with KAMRON HUMPHREY (Brooklyn, NY 2-0 1KO) in a classic Bronx vs Brooklyn battle of the buroughs over 4-rounds at light heavyweight. This will be Maietta’s third appearance in the “Rockin’ Fights” series.
Undefeated Elmont Long Island product, ISAAH FLAHERTY (2-0 1KO) looks to remain undefeated as he faces off with Newark, New Jersey’s ANGELO THOMPSON (0-1) who has eyes set on getting his first professional win. Finally kicking off the action will be EMMANUEL ETIENNE (1-0 1KO) looking for his second win at the Paramount against Amsterdam, New York’s ALEXIS NIEUWKERK (pro-debut).
