DIBELLA ANNOUNCES NINTH YEAR OF BROADWAY BOXING
Press Release: On Wednesday, January 23, 2013, DiBella Entertainment kicks off its 9th consecutive season of the popular Broadway Boxing series at New York City's famed BB King Blues Club. "This is going to be our ninth consecutive season of Broadway Boxing and I truly believe that each year has been better than the last," stated Lou DiBella, President of DiBella Entertainment. "Nearly every Broadway Boxing card we staged last year in New York was a complete sell-out, and we are looking to continue that run with another great event on January 23rd. The card will be stacked with some of the most promising young prospects in boxing."
The card will feature Lamar Russ (11-0, 7 KOs), Luis "K.O. King" Rosa (11-0, 6 KOs) and Delen "Sniper" Parsley (9-0, 2 KOs) against opponent to be announced. Additional bouts and information on the card, including a must-see main event will be announced shortly.
Both Parsley and Rosa, have been featured on the Broadway Boxing series multiple times already in their young careers, but the bout on the 23rd will be the first appearance on the series for the highly touted middleweight Russ.
The 25-year-old Russ joined the DBE roster late in 2012, and in his first bout under the promotional banner scored a first-round annihilation over previously undefeated Jonathan Cepeda. In his previous bout, Russ scored a fourth-round TKO over another undefeated boxer, Jose Alonzo. Russ is looking to kick off what he hopes to be a breakout year on the 23rd.
Rosa, a native of Caguas, Puerto Rico, but now living and training in New Haven, CT, scored a sixth-round TKO over Victor Valenzuela in his last bout on September 29th at Foxwoods. He is just 21 years old and competes as a super bantamweight.
The Broadway Boxing series is the longest current running series in boxing and has included appearances in their early careers by such former and current world champions, Paulie Maglinaggi, Andre Berto and Yuri Forman, just to name a few.
