New York, NY (2/15/13) - Next Thursday, February 21, DiBella Entertainment's (DBE) Broadway Boxing series returns to the Roseland Ballroom in New York City, with an action-packed nine-bout card headlined by the return of highly regarded WBA #10 junior welterweight Thomas Dulorme (16-1, 12KO's) taking on Eddie Brooks (9-3, 3KO's) in an eight-round matchup, held at a catch weight of 143lbs.
Also featured on the card in separate eight-round bouts will be red-hot lightweight prospect Ivan Redkach (13-0, 11KO's) and WBA #11-rated welterweight Charlie Ota (21-1-1, 15KO's). Ota will square off against Abel Perry (18-6, 9KO's), while Redkach is set to take on hard-hitting Sergio Rivera (27-10-2, 17KO's).
Fighting in separate bouts will be DBE's next generation of promising future prospects, NY Golden Gloves champions "The Notorious" Travis Peterkin (6-0, 3KO's), Patrick "All" Day (1-0, 1KO) and Louis Cruz (1-0, 1KO). Peterkin is set to challenge Thomas Turner (3-2, 2KO's) in a six-round light heavyweight matchup, Day will meet Dominique Foster (1-1-1) in a four-round junior middleweight matchup and Cruz will see action in a four-round junior welterweight matchup against Demond Brock (3-1, 2KO's).
Making his much-anticipated pro debut on the card will be 19-year-old 2012 Ecuadorian Olympian and 2011 Pan-American Heavyweight Champion Ytalo Perea as he squares off against Excell Holmes (2-1-1, 1KO) in a four-round heavyweight special attraction.
Making his second straight appearance on a DBE-promoted card will be Brooklyn's Neuky Santelises (3-0, 2KO's) as he looks to up his record to a perfect 4-0 when he takes on Denis Madriz (0-0-1) in a four-round junior lightweight contest. Santelises last saw action on the DBE-promoted card at BB King Blues Club in January, where he scored a devastating one-punch highlight-reel knockout over Juan Javier Guerrero.
