Curtis Stevens added to card

NEW YORK (September 24, 2012) - Tickets are now on for the October 27th pay-per-view event, "Rising Olympian Star In The Big Apple," featuring undefeated welterweight prospect Sadam "World Kid" Ali (15-0, 9 KOs), a 2008 U.S. Olympian, live from Aviator Sports Complex in Brooklyn, New York.

Brownsville super middleweight Curtis "Showtime" Stevens (22-3, 16 KOs) has been added to the card in a eight-round bout against an opponent to be determined. Stevens is a former New York State light heavyweight champion who knocked out previously unbeaten Piotr Wilczewski (22-0) in the third round of their 2009 fight in Newark (NJ). A 2002 US National amateur champion, Stevens has also defeated world champion Carl Daniels.

The youngest boxing promoter in America, 23-year-old Ali was a highly-decorated amateur boxer who was a national champion in the Junior Olympics, Police Athlete League (PAL), Under-19 Tournament, as well as a two-time, two division New York City Golden Gloves champion. He became the first New York City boxer in 20 years, since Riddick Bowe in 1988, to earn a berth on the U.S. Olympic Boxing Team, and was the first Arab-American to ever represent the U.S. in the Olympic Games.

"Rising Olympian Star In The Big Apple," presented by Sadam Ali's World Kid Promotions, will be distributed in the United States by Integrated Sports Media for live viewing at 9:00 p.m. ET/6:00 p.m. PT on both cable and satellite pay per view via iN Demand, DISH Network and Avail-TVN for a suggested retail price of only $29.95.

Rising star Ali, fighting out of Brooklyn, is currently rated No. 8 by United States Boxing Association (USBA), as well as No. 12 by the North American Boxing Organization (NABO) and No. 15 by the North American Boxing Federation (NABF).

Ali, who won World Boxing Federation American welterweight title in his last fight in June versus Franklin Gonzalez (TKO8), takes on former Indiana State champion Jermaine "Too Sweet" White (17-5, 9 KOs), of Chicago, in the 10-round main event. Three of White's career losses have been to world champions Julio Cesar Chavez, Jr., Anthony Peterson and Paul Spadafora.

Colombian cruiserweight Santander "The Demolition Man" Silgado (22-0, 18 KOs) puts his unbeaten record on the line against veteran Gary "Pit Bull" Gomez (19-13-2, 7 KOs) in the 10-round co-feature. Silgado, now fighting out of Brooklyn, is world rated at No. 11 by the World Boxing Association (WBA) and No. 13 by the World Boxing Council (WBC). A seven-time Colombian national champion, Silgado captured the World Boxing Council FECARBOX title by defeating Willie Herring this past March. Salt Lake City's Gomez is a former WBC Continental Americas and Utah State champion. His most notable wins have been against Chad Van Sickle, who was 18-0-1 when Gomez defeated him by way of a 10-round decision, Rayco Saunders and Derrick Brown.

Newly crowned World Boxing Federation Intercontinental light middleweight champion Mike "El Cangri" Ruiz (17-7, 9 KOs) drops back to his natural welterweight division to face and opponent to soon be determined. Ruiz is coming off his 10th round TKO title-winning performance July 21 against hometown favorite Paul Delgado in Atlanta.

Also fighting on the undercard in four-round bouts against opponents to soon be announced are Brooklyn's one-handed Michael Constantino, who will be making his pro debut after fighting in the NYC Golden Gloves Tournament; Maine light middleweight Steven Gamache (3-0, 1 KO), the son of former world champion Joey Gamache; Brooklyn light middleweight Shawn Cameron in his pro debut.

"Rising Olympian Star In The Big Apple," doesnt sound right. it sounds like title of a borat movie. sadam and his dad should stop trying to be promoters. the aviator in bk is old news especially with the new barcleys center in town. beg golden boy to sign you sadam, just because you went to olympics doesnt = $$$ as a pro. sadams dad got greedy and thought his son is worth more then the market says. forming your own promo outfit, fighting taxi drivers while added a few brooklyn boxers on the card doesnt make it a fun card to go to. also by fighting no hopers and bums sadam is no better then when he was amatuer. stevens got his chin checked and no one wants to see him. salita will have no part of sadam ali promotions now that golden boy will pay him to box on their cards. sadam ali quit the promoters business and get down on your knees and get golden boy to sign you. you can headline barclays if things go well. fighting bums at the aviator makes it worse for you.

bout time,... been hearing about this guy for what seems like forever but never saw him in actions. Plus one of the chin-checkers alumni,.. Deepwater you sound like you have some insight on the situation (some interesting stuff in your post).. .. just want to see if the guy can really fight.

deepwater says:

hey brownsugar yeah I watched sadam come up thru the amatuers. He had real good promise goin into the games. He lost in the games like most americans do. him and his dad are american muslims and thought that since sadam was first muslim american to go to the games that he should have big hype when turning pro. instead of turning pro with a top rank or golden boy sadam and his dad thought they could make their own outfit and sell out arenas in brooklyn until they get to 20-0 and the major promoters will be begging them. well he is undefeated but he is fighting no good bums. he couldnt even knock out bums with 7-9 and 13-25 records. he is wasting away protecting his hyped up record. barclays just signed deal with golden boy. if sadam was smart they would get on the golden boy train and put on good fights. instead I bet you they milk it for as long as they can and when he does get a real shot he will fizzle.

One error in fact, deepwater. Sadam Ali was the Arab to box in the O-Games for the U.S.A.The first Muslim was Howard Davis Jr in 1976. Holla!
