BROADWAY BOXING RETURNS TO ROSELAND BALLROOM THURSDAY JUNE 14 HEADLINED BY UNDEFATED PROSPECT SEANIE MONAGHAN AND WORLD-RATED CONTENDER THOMAS DULORME
New York, NY (5/10/12) - On Thursday, June 14, DiBella Entertainment's Broadway Boxing series returns to New York City's famed Roseland Ballroom for its third installment of 2012. Headlining the card will be world-rated welterweight contender Thomas Dulorme (14-0, 11KO's), who is widely considered as one of the most promising young boxers in all of boxing, as well as Long Island's fan-favorite undefeated light heavyweight prospect, "Irish" Seanie Monaghan (13-0, 8KO's).
Broadway Boxing kicked off the 2012 season with an action-packed, sold out card at Roseland on January 21. DBE followed that up with another completely sold out event on March 7 at B.B. King Blues Club and now returns for what promises to be another thrilling night of boxing with the undercard featuring some of the most exciting and popular fighters throughout the New York area.
Dulorme, 14-0, 11KOs, is of Dominican descent but he has spent the large majority of his life as a resident of Puerto Rico. The 22-year-old NABF Welterweight Champion is part of Team Puerto Rico, a group of fighters promoted by DiBella Entertainment, Gary Shaw Productions, Universal Promotions and Warriors Boxing. Already rated as the WBC #3 and WBA #4 welterweight in the world, Dulorme is coming a first-round annihilation of Aris Ambriz, 16-2-1, 8KOs, on February 17, which was the main event on ShoBox: The New Generation, shown live on SHOWTIME®. Boxing insiders have been raving about Dulorme's ability for some time now, and the blue-chip prospect continues to inch closer to his first world title opportunity in the very near future.
Every time that Long Beach, New York's Seanie Monaghan, 13-0, 8KOs, steps into the ring, his army of fans continues to grow. Monaghan, who last fought on the undercard of Sergio Martinez' middleweight title defense against Matthew Macklin at Madison Square Garden on St. Patrick's Day, has become a staple fighting on the undercard of almost every recent major card that has come to New York due to his action-packed, fan friendly style. Now, on June 14, Monaghan will have the opportunity to headline what could be the first of many more shows to come in the future for the dynamic light heavyweight prospect.
Additional bouts will be announced shortly.
Tickets are priced at $125, $85, $65 and $45, with a limited number of VIP tables available for purchase as well. VIP Tickets are priced at $150, and there are four seats to a table.
