MARCH 7 AT BB KINGS BLUES CLUB IN NYC

 

New York, NY - (2/14/2011)- On Wednesday, March 7, DiBella Entertainment's (DBE)"Broadway Boxing" series returns to B.B. King Blues Club in New York City, with an exciting eight-bout card, headlined by an intriguing 10-round welterweight matchup between undefeated up-and-coming prospect Alex Perez (15-0, 9 KO's) taking on his toughest opponent to date in longtime contender Francisco "El Gato" Figueroa (20-3-1, 13 KO's). 

Tickets are priced at $100, $75, and $55 (general admission), and are available by calling the DiBella Entertainment office at (212) 947-2577.  Doors open at 6:30PM with the first bout scheduled for 7:30PM.

DBE kicked off the 2012 season of "Broadway Boxing" before a sold-out crowd that on January 21 with a thrilling night of action-packed fights that had a little bit of everything, including knockouts, wars, and upsets.  Now DBE looks to keep the momentum rolling in its ninth consecutive season of the popular boxing series by putting on what promises to be another exciting event headlined by the explosive crossroads matchup between Perez and Figueroa.

Perez last saw action as the opening bout of the January 21 card, scoring a vicious second-round TKO over Josh Sosa (10-1). Prior to that victory, Perez had been out of action for over seven months recovering from a hand injury.  With the hand now completely healed, Perez will look to begin his climb up the ranks of the welterweight division, but he must first take care of business against the extremely dangerous Figueroa.

The Bronx-native Figueroa, a former New York State and NABF light welterweight champion, has been a staple of the New York boxing scene since his amateur days.  Figueroa will be returning to the ring for the first time since November 2009, as he embarks on another run toward a world championship. 

Also scheduled to see action on the card is Queens-native, four-time NY Golden Gloves champion Will Rosinsky (14-1, 8KO's), DBE prospects Tor Hamer (13-1, 9KO's) and Luis Rosa (9-0, 5KO's), as well as an eight-round junior middleweight showdown between undefeated up-and-coming prospects Delen "The Sniper" Parsley (6-0, 2KO's) and Boyd "Rainmaker" Melson (8-0, 4KO's).  A complete list of the undercard will be announced shortly.

Tickets are priced at $100, $75, and $55 (general admission), and are available by calling the DiBella Entertainment office at (212) 947-2577.  Doors open at 6:30PM with the first bout scheduled for 7:30PM.
