'Broadway Boxing' Returns to FIGHT NOW TV
Wednesday night featuring undefeated prospect “Irish” Seanie Monaghan
NEW YORK (October 22, 2012) – DiBella Entertainment's popular “Broadway Boxing” series returns to FIGHT NOW TV– America's only 24-hour combat sports and entertainment channel – this Wednesday night (Oct. 24), starting at 9 p/m/ ET, live from the famed Roseland Ballroom in midtown Manhattan.
The 10-round main event showcases popular Long Island light heavyweight “Irish” Seanie Monaghan (15-0, 10 KOs) defending his World Boxing Council (WBC) Americas title against gatekeeper Rayco “War” Saunders (22-17-2, 9 KOs).
“We're thrilled to be airing another 'Broadway Boxing' show for our FIGHT NOW TV viewers in America,” said FIGHT NOW TV Co-Founder & General Manager Mike Garrow. “Lou DiBella and his team consistently put on competitive, entertaining fights featuring rising stars such as Seanie Monaghan. Another great night of boxing will shine once again on Broadway.”
Undefeated Monaghan stopped George Armenta in the third-round of their August 2nd fight, which was the co-feature on the first “Broadway Boxing” show that aired on FIGHT NOW TV. Monaghan is now world rated at No. 24 by the WBC. He has prepared for this fight by serving as a sparring partner in the United Kingdom for world-ranked Tony Bellow. Battle-tested veteran Saunders has defeated World Boxing Organization (WBO) title challenger Tommy Karpency (DEC8) and fought a draw with three-time world title challenger Danny Santiago.
The eight-round co-feature matches former North American Boxing Federation (NABF) light welterweight champion and Brooklyn favorite, Gabriel “Tito” Bracero (19-1 (3 KOs), against former WBC Youth World title-holder Eric “La Maquina” Cruz (13-10-3, 13 KOs).
Some of the other fights on the card that may be televised on FIGHT NOW TV, pending time availability, include Italian lightweight Floriano Pagliara (13-4-2, 7 KOs) vs. Jeremy McLaurin (9-4, 5 KOs) in an eight-round bout, highly-touted unbeaten junior middleweight Delen “Sniper” Parsley (8-0, 2 KOs) vs. Ibahiem King (10-7, 4 KOs) in a six-rounder, light heavyweight Travis Peterkin (4-0, 3 KOs) vs. Hamid Abdul-Mateen (3-2-2) and super bantamweight Heather Hardy (1-0) vs. pro debuting Unique Harris in a pair of four-round fights.
