NEW YORK (MAY 21, 2014)--This past weekend, Sal Musumeci's Final Forum Boxing was in the middle of all the action in North America as the promotional company was involved in big events in Montreal and New York, with great success.
First on Friday night, former world ranked heavyweight Derric Rossy scored the biggest win of his career when he took home a 10-round majority decision over Joe Hanks in a bout that was nationally televised on ESPN's Friday Night Fights.
With the win, Rossy (29-8, 14 KO's) of Medford, New York will put himself back in the middle of the heavyweight picture and most likely see action in a significant bout this summer.
The very next night, Final Forum staged a seven-bout card at Pac Plex in Brooklyn and in the main event, heavyweight Natu Visinia remained perfect with a 6-round unanimous decision over Jon Bolden.
Visinia, of California and of Samoan decent, is now 10-0 with 8 knockouts and his promoter Sal Musumeci is very happy with the progress of the power puncher.
"It was a great weekend. First off, Derric showed people that he still is more than just a viable heavyweight and he can beat a lot of guys. I have never stopped believing in him and I feel with a couple wins like he had on Friday night he could definitely get a title shot," said Musumeci.
"As for Visinia, he has a chance to be special. He has showed that he can punch with anyone in the division and I look forward to being able to move him into bigger and better fights."
Musumeci had one more special announcement for the boxing public.
"I am back. I have been fighting through a couple of medical issues over the last couple years and the best is yet to come for Final Forum. In fact we are just days away from making a major announcement where we will be showing live boxing on a major national sports network, which will also be televised worldwide in the premiere venues for worldwide for boxing," he said.
