    Full Undercard Announced For Friday "ShoBox" in CT











































    COMPLETE CARD ANNOUNCED FOR UPCOMING SHOBOX: THE NEW GENERATION CARD

    FRIDAY, MAY 16, AT FOXWOODS RESORT CASINO MASHANTUCKET, CONNECTICUT

    NEW YORK (May 13, 2014)- This Friday, May 16, DiBella Entertainment (DBE), in association with Jean Pascal Promotions, will return to the beautiful Foxwoods Resort Casino, in Mashantucket, Conn., for an exciting ShoBox: The New Generation card live on SHOWTIME® (10 p.m. ET/PT, delayed on the West Coast).
    The card will feature exciting fights and promising young talent from top to bottom, including two a live televised doubleheader.
    Headlining the card in the 10-round main event will be highly regarded undefeated super featherweight prospect Joel Diaz Jr. (15-0, 12KO's) taking on once-beaten Tyler Asselstine (14-1, 7KO's).
    Returning to ShoBox for the second time in 2014, red-hot prospect Frank Galarza (13-0-2, 9KO's) will face fellow undefeated prospect Sebastien Bouchard (9-0, 2KO's) in the co-feature. Galarza-Bouchard is scheduled for eight rounds in the junior middleweight division.
    Appearing on the undercard in his first scheduled eight-rounder will be DBE's undefeated light heavyweight prospect Travis Peterkin (11-0, 5KO's) as he looks to keep his unblemished record intact when he takes on Larry Pryor. This will be the former NY Golden Gloves champion's second bout of 2014, after winning all four of his fights in 2013.
    Fast-rising junior lightweight prospect Bryant "Pee-Wee" Cruz (10-0, 6KO's) will be returning to the ring for the third time already this year when he challenges Atlantic City's Osnell Charles in their scheduled six-rounder. The 24-year-old Cruz, who hails from Westchester County, NY, and has quickly become one of the more popular attractions on the local NY boxing scene, will be bringing his army of fans to Connecticut, as he looks to continue his winning ways against the veteran Charles. Cruz just recently signed an exclusive co-promotional contract with DBE and New Legend Boxing and exciting things are expected out of the undefeated prospect in the near future.
    Also appearing on the card in separate four-round bouts will be three of the newest members to the ever-growing Al Haymon stable, Gervonta Davis (6-0, 6KO's), John Magda (5-0, 4KO's) and Kareem Martin (1-0, 1KO).
    19-year-old phenom and former amateur standout Gervonta Davis (6-0, 6KO's) will be entering the ring for the first time in 2014, after going a perfect 6-0 in 2013, when he squares off against Joshua Arocho in a four-round featherweight matchup. Davis, a 2012 National Golden Gloves, three-time National Silver Gloves and two-time PAL champion, is as talented as any up-and-comer in the game right now and is expected to quickly rise up the featherweight ranks.
    The 22-year-old Magda was a 2008 NJ Junior Olympics champion and 2009 NJ Golden Gloves champion, before successfully turning pro in 2013. Magda is quickly becoming a star in his native New Jersey, thanks to his aggressive style and heavy hands. Four of his five knockouts have come in the very first round. Magda is set to see action against David Courchaine in their four-round super middleweight matchup.
    Rounding out the card will be 2013 USA Nationals and National PAL champion Kareem Martin (1-0, 1KO) taking on Azamat Umarzoda in a scheduled four-round welterweight contest.
    Tickets are priced at $125, $85 and $45, and may be purchased online at Foxwoods.com, by calling the Foxwoods' box office at 800-200-2882, or in person at the Foxwoods box office. Tickets may also be purchased through any Ticketmaster outlet or online at Ticketmaster.com.
    Barry Tompkins will call the ShoBox action from ringside with boxing historian Steve Farhood and former World Champion Raul Marquez serving as expert analysts. The executive producer is Gordon Hall with Richard Gaughan producing and Rick Phillips directing.

    Galarza v Bouchard should be one helluvas fight. In fact, this is one of the most solid fight cards of the year, from top to bottom.

    Gonna' be walking in from my show on SiriusXM just as this one is getting underway. Perfect timing.

    From a morningt boxcing workout to talking about it on radio to watching it on TV.

    Sounds like a perfect day!

    Hayman is like an Ameba , swallowing up new talent only to be hungry for more an hour later.
    Thanks for the preview Commish, I'm not too familiar with these guys. But I have a feeling I won't be after the broadcast.

    El Dude will write about this awesome ShoBox schedule of fights that will be reflecting on the prospecting Boxing Nation of tomorrow, taking place at The Foxwoods Resort Casino in Mashantucket, Connecticut on Friday, May 16 for all to see. Warriors of the ring with bloody dreams make us scream fanatically with insanity and faith for the future of Boxing. Injurious and glorious are the crossroads that separate the best from the rest and this ShoBox will be a great test for the future best. I wish good luck to all of the Boxing warriors who will write their moment in Boxing History with signatures of blood and pain. Its OK to give your prediction and to voice your opinion as long as you respect the brave men who are not afraid to step in the ring where they meet their faith and keep respecting the Artistic Boxing Reflections of El Dude.

    Commish, I actually really like the Diaz-Asselstine matchup. This is a good test for Diaz who himself is an action fighter.

    Diaz can punch with both hands. His left hook may be his best punch but he can also hit hard with the right. He is a solid prospect and developing nicely as a pro.

    He has a tendency to get drawn into exchanges. When he fought on ShoBox a few years ago, Al Bernstein on the air mentioned that some are comparing him to a young Brandon Rios. That is a very good description I think.

    Asseelstine lost about a year ago on Friday Night Fights to a late replacement in a fight in which he has pretty heavily favored. This is do or die for him and he knows it. I expect him to be focused and fight as if his career is on the line. Fighters that are desperate and determined tend to make for good fights.
