NEW CO-FEATURE FOR NEXT WEEK'S BROOKLYN CARD
Press Release: With Carlos Molina [not the IBF 154-pound titlist, but a different boxer with the same name] withdrawing due to flu-like symptoms, Michael "The Artist" Perez will now face Mexico's Miguel "Dinamita" Zuniga on September 30th in a ten-round junior welterweight bout at small theater at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY. The bout will be shown on the Golden Boy Live! series on Fox Sports 1 and Fox Deportes. In the main event, Brooklyn's undefeated welterweight and 2008 U.S. Olympian Sadam "World Kid" Ali takes on "Smokin" Jay Krupp in an eight-round matchup.
Plus, 2012 U.S. Olympian "Sir"Marcus Browne of Staten Island, fellow Olympic team member Jamel Herring of Coram, NY, The Bronx's Emmanuel Gonzalez, Brooklyn's Claude Staten Jr. and Maryland's D'Mitrius Ballard will all be in action to help Barclays Center celebrate its one-year anniversary.
Newark's Michael "The Artist" Perez (18-1-2, 10 KOs) has lost only to Omar "Panterita" Figueroa Jr. and has a technical draw with Lonnie Smith due to a cut from a clash of heads.
A native of Tijuana, Mexico now fighting out of San Diego, 26-year-old Miguel "Dinamita" Zuniga (13-2, 8 KOs) has won four of his last five bouts, with his only loss in that stretch coming against unbeaten Daquan Arnett.
Unbeaten as a professional, Staten Island's "Sir" Marcus Browne (6-0, 6 KOs) has so far made a seamless adjustment from the amateurs to the pros. Fresh from a knockout victory over Robert Hill on August 19th, the 22-year-old will take on Lamont Williams in his fourth appearance at Barclays Center in a six-round televised light heavyweight fight.
Gardena, California's Lamont Williams (5-1-1, 2 KO's) has rebounded from a 1-1 start to his career, leading him to the biggest fight of his career against Browne. To win, the 33-year-old will have to be firing on all cylinders.
Also on the card will be Brooklyn's Claude Staten Jr. (1-0) who will return to Barclays Center to face Philadelphia's Derrick Bivins (1-1-1) in a four-round super bantamweight bout; super middleweight D'Mitrius Ballard (2-0, 2 KO's) of Temple Hills, Maryland battles Lynchburg, Virginia's Jess Noriega (2-5,
2 KO's) in a four-round contest and in the six-round super lightweight opener, 2012 U.S. Olympian Jamel Herring (4-0, 2 KO's) of Coram, NY hopes to keep his unbeaten streak going against Springfield, Illinois' Justin Robbins (2-3, 1 KO).
