FULL BROADWAY BOXING LINE-UP REVEALED
Press Release: Yesterday, DiBella Entertainment announced its Broadway Boxing show on May 15th at BB King Blues Club in New York City would be headlined by Andy Lee (29-2, 20 KOs) vs. Darryl Cunningham (28-4, 11 KOs). Today, the remainder of the card was announced. Middleweight Lamar Russ (13-0, 7 KOs) takes on Russell "Spiderman" Jordan (15-9, 10 KOs) and Delen "The Sniper" Parsley (10-0, 3 KOs) squares off against Louis Rose (6-1, 2 KOs). Both bouts are scheduled for eight rounds. Looking to get back into the win column will be heavyweight Tor Hamer (19-2, 12 KOs) who faces Houston's Maurenzo Smith (11-5-2, 8 KOs) in a six rounder.
Also seeing action will be New York Golden Glove Champion Louis Cruz (2-0). The Bronx native is matched against Puerto Rico's Michael Carreras (0-2) in a four-round lightweight matchup.
Making his pro debut will be the newest member of the DBE roster, Puerto Rico's Angel Suarez, who will box fellow Puerto Rican Eliezer Agosto (1-2) in a four-round featherweight contest.
Suarez had an amateur career which included a 243-65 record. He was a 106- and 119-pound junior metro regional champion as well as a 126-pound junior national champion. He also won gold at both the Roman Cup and KITO tournament and was a bronze medalist at the 2011 Pan-American Games.
Looking to improve to a perfect 3-0 thus far in 2013 will be New York City's hard-hitting Neuky Santalesis (4-0), as he takes on Aaron Chavez (3-2-1) in a four-round junior lightweight matchup. Santalesis was in action on the DBE-promoted card back in January at BB King's, where he scored a one-punch second-round knockout over Juan Guerrero. Santalesis followed up that performance by blowing away Denis Madriz in just 46 seconds on DBE's Broadway Boxing card in February.
Rounding out the card will be Brooklyn's pro-debuting cruiserweight Jay Rodriguez as he takes on "not that" Andre Ward (1-1-2) in a four-round matchup.
Tickets are available for purchase by calling the DiBella Entertainment office at (212) 947-2577.
