NEW YORK (May 8, 2014) - Next 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 the two previously announced live televised bouts.
