October 31, 2012 - Undefeated welterweight contender, Vitaliy Demyanenko (21-0, 12 KOs), will be showcased in the main event at the Emerald Casino in Tacoma, Washington this Saturday November 3rd, when he faces journeyman, Damian Frias (19-5-1, 10 KOs) in a 10-round bout. The event is promoted by Brian Halquist Productions in association with Boxing 360, who promotes Demyanenko.
Demyanenko looks to continue his march up the welterweight rankings and add another win to his undefeated record. With a possible TV fight looming for the Russian born standout, Vitaliy is looking to make a statement against Frias.
"Training camp is complete and I'm excited to be fighting in the main event this Saturday," said Demyanenko. "I know Frais is coming to fight but there's nothing he can do that is going to surprise me. My trainer and I have studied his tapes and we've put together a masterful game plan to counter his attack. My goal in this fight is to get the knockout, but I'm prepared to go the distance if I have too."
"Vitaliy is ready to go and I expect him to have a great performance against Frais," stated Demyanenko's manager Steve Pochiro. "The ultimate goal is to position Demyanenko into the top ten of all sanctioning organizations by early next year."
"Demyanenko is making a lot of noise right now in the welterweight division," says Boxing 360 promoter Mario Yagobi. "His name is big in Russia where he was born and raised and he's been getting better with each fight. He's got a bright future as long as he keeps winning, which I anticipate him to do."

BROOKLYN, NY (October 27, 2012) - 2008 U.S. Olympian Sadam "World Kid" Ali (16-0, 10 KOs) stopped Ronnie "The Natural Warrior, Jr. (13-8-1, 4 KOs) in the second round of Saturday night's main event at the Aviator Sports Complex in Brooklyn, New York
"Rising Olympian Star In The Big Apple," presented by Ali's World Kid Promotions, was distributed in the United States on pay-per-view by Integrated Sports Media.
Undefeated welterweight prospect Ali shined bright at home on a show that he also promoted. The well-rounded boxer took control in the opening round, dropped Warrior midway through the second with a short left, and finished him off with a perfectly thrown right at 2:59.
"I worked hard for this and I want to thank everybody for this opportunity," Ali said after the fight. "I hope I'm eligible to do more television events. I'm trying to get better opponents but sometimes fights fall out (Ali's original opponent Jermaine White was replaced by Warrior on two days notice). The better fighters cost a lot of money and I'm not in that position yet. I'm ready to step up.
"I want to keep my promotional company going, enhance my career and stay busy. I also want to help other fighters because I know how hard it is getting fights without a promoter."
In a non-title fight, WBC FECARBOX cruiserweight champion Santander "Cha-Cha" Silgado (23-0, 18 KOs) defeated Joell Godfrey (15-9-1, 6 KOs) for the second time in two months. Silgado won an eight-round decision over Godfrey this past August and repeated that outcome in the co-feature against his late replacement.
Colombia-native Silgado, now residing in Brooklyn, is rated No. 8 by the World Boxing Council (WBC) and No. 10 in the World Boxing Association (WBA). Godfrey has never been stopped in 25 professional fights.
Three-time Egyptian Olympian Ramadan "Holy Man" Yasser (8-0, 5 KOs) engaged in an old-fashioned brawl with Philadelphia cruiserweight Tim Johnson (4-2, 2 KOs). Yasser, who now lives in New York City, dropped Johnson in the first and fifth rounds en route to unanimous six-round decision to remain undefeated.
One-fisted Queens (NY) cruiserweight Michael Costantino, who was born without a right hand, won his pro debut by second-round technical knockout of Nathan Ortiz (0-3). Costantino hurt Ortiz with several strong lefts until Ortiz, turned his back, signaling his corner that he didn't want to continue fighting.
Manhattan light middleweight Stevie Gamache (4-0, 1 KO) kept his unbeaten record intact, taking all four rounds from a game Jose Angel Ortiz (4-11-1, 1 KO). Gamache is trained by his father, two-time, two-division world champion Joey Gamache.
Boxers in attendance supporting the show included Paulie Malignggi, Junior Jones, Luis Colazzo, Vinny Maddalone, Maureen Shea, Gary Stark, Gabriel Bracero and Will Rosinsky.
Brooklyn bantamweight Jennifer Santiago (2-0) pitched a shutout, winning all four rounds against Ivan "Boo Boo" Coleman (0-3). Light middleweight Shawn Cameron (3-0, 2 KOs) won a battle of previously unbeaten Brooklyn fighters with a four-round decision over Mamadou Doumbia (1-1).

NEW YORK (October 25, 2012) - Last Saturday night's show-stealing, world title- winning performance on Showtime Championship Boxing was only the beginning for new World Boxing Organization (WBO) middleweight champion Peter "Kid Chocolate" Quillin (28-0, 20 KOs).
Quillin dropped defending champion and previously undefeated Hassan N'Dam N'Jikam (27-1, 17 KOs) six times en route to a spectacular 12-round triumph, receiving scores of 115-107 from all three judges.
Born in Chicago and raised in Grand Rapids, Michigan, the charismatic Cuban-American returned to Brooklyn, where he once lived for four years, and became the first American-born fighter to be world middleweight champion since Kelly Pavlik lost to Sergio Martinez in 2010.
"It was great putting on a performance like that for the fans at Barclay Center," said Quillin, who now lives in Manhattan but trains at the Wild Card Gym in Los Angeles. "All my hard work paid off. It was a great show. People saying I stole the show, well, that's a blessing. I proved that I can perform like that, given the chance, in a championship fight. I beat a world champion who had an undefeated, identical record as mine."
Five of the six punches he decked N'Dam with were left hooks and Quillin finished strong by flooring his opponent twice in the final round. "I've always had a good left hook," Quillin noted. "People may not have noticed it before, but it's another tool in my tool box.
"I always have confidence in my skills and working with (strength-and-conditioning coach) Brad Bose and my nutritionist, Robert Garcia, conditioning was never my concern. I went 12 hard rounds and felt strong right to the end."
Quillin is a throwback fighter in the sense that he'll take on anybody put in the ring with him, provided Team Chocolate (Golden Boy Promotions, adviser Al Haymon, co-managers John Seip and Jim McDevitt and trainer Eric Brown) signs off. His next opponent could be a fellow world champion, former world title-holder, hot prospect, or top 10-ranked contender.
"It's important to be surrounded by a group of people, like Team Chocolate, that believes in me and is always there to help," added Quillin, who admits winning the world title hasn't completely sunk in yet. "I trust my team to come-up with my best option. My job is to be ready for whatever happens and keep coming out victoriously. We'll see how things play out. I'll defend my title and come out of my next fight as a winner, just like I always have been. I'm not going to get big headed about this. I'm going to pick-up my work ethic even more and stay hungry.
"I have an X on my back now. Life has already started to change a little, but that comes with the territory as world champion. Now that I am world champion, I guess I need to re-evaluate my goals; I want to win more titles and become a household name."
Capturing the WBO crown was only the beginning for "Kid Chocolate."

Number one rated junior middleweight Gabriel Rosado did an about face today, and decided to withdraw from his intended bout with Elvin Ayala on Dec. 8th.
Rosado said, "After talking things over with my trainer, Billy Briscoe, I have decided to pass on the Dec. 8 fight with Elvin Ayala and wait to see what K9 Bundrage's next move is concerning my chance to fight him for the IBF world title by next March."
Rosado's advisor J. Russell Peltz of Peltz boxing confirmed, "It would have been nice having Gabby fight in Philly now that he's a much bigger star, but I understand where he's coming from and I support whatever decisions he makes."
The fight had been scheduled as the co-feature on the critically acclaimed NBC Fight Night Boxing Series. A replacement bout will be announced shortly.
HOLLYWOOD, FLA (OCTOBER 25, 2012)—The World Boxing Organization held day one of its 25th annual convention on Tuesday at the Seminole Hard Rock Casino in Hollywood, Florida. Among the many subjects on their agenda, the WBO presented fighter of the year recognition awards to their regional champions. Amongst the acknowledged was WBO Latino Super Featherweight Champion Juan Carlos Burgos & WBO Inter-Continental champion Ruslan Provodnikov.
Burgos won the WBO Latino Fighter of the Year while Provodnikov won the WBO Inter-Continental Fighter of the Year
The Mexican native, Burgos (30-1, 20 KOs), is the mandatory challenger to the title at 130 currently held by Puerto Rican Roman "Rocky" Martinez (26-1-1, 13 KOs).
Said Burgos, "I am extremely humbled and proud to receive this award. Having dedicated my life to the sport, it means so much to me. I have always and will continue to give my very best in the ring."
Said Provodnikov (22-1, 15 KO’s) “Its an honor to be recognized by the WBO and I look forward to big fight coming up in the near future”
Burgos has had a stellar run in WBO Latino championship bouts by defeating two undefeated fighters in Luis Cruz (19-0) and Cesar Vazquez (25-0) within the last year.
Provodnikov, who is now ranked number-two is in line to fight for the world championship especially since number-one contender Mike Alvarado was just stopped and champion Juan Manuel Marquez will be moving up in weight for his fourth encounter with Manny Pacquiao on December 8th.
Like Burgos, Provodnikov has been perfect in his two WBO mandated bouts as he stopped David Torres in six and Jose Reynoso in two rounds this past June 29th.
Said Banner Promotions CEO Artie Pelullo, “Ruslan and Juan Carlos are deserving of these accolades and the best has yet to come as in the next several months they will both be fighting and winning world titles”

VERO BEACH, FL (October 11, 2012) - Bahamian road warrior Sherman "Tank" Williams heads to Finland in a few weeks, not for a Scandinavian vacation, but to ruin undefeated Robert "The Nordic Nightmare" Helenius' return to the ring, as well as to give the big Finn his first loss as a pro.
"I'm going to Finland to give Helenius more than he can handle," Williams said from his Florida training camp in Vero Beach. "I'm bringing my 'Conch' (over-hand right) punch and to spoil things for him."
Former European champion Helenius (17-0, 11 KOs) has been out of action nearly a full year, since last December 3 when he suffered a shoulder injury during his highly-controversial 12-round split decision win over Derek Chisora. The 6' 6 ½" Helenius, ranked No. 13 by the World Boxing Organization (WBO), has knocked out a trio of former world heavyweight champions: Sergei Liakhovich (TKO9), Samuel Peter (KO9) and Lamon Brewster (TKO8).
"Helenius brings size into the ring," WBO No. 10 rated Williams noted. "He's 6' 6", 6' 7" but guys that size rarely stand-up straight. I'm sure I can reach him. I've been in the ring with big guys before like Jameel McCline, who I fight in his hometown at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City. I beat him from pillar-to-post but only got a draw. I've sparred with Wladimir and Vitali (Klitschko brothers) and reached them.
"I looked at Helenius' record and he's beaten some name fighters, but I think he padded his record by beating them long after their primes. Helenius is going to be eating a lot of 'Conch' on November 10th."
Williams (34-11-2, 19 KOs), a bonafide Bahamian sports legend, traveled halfway around the world to Macau, China on June 28 to defeat (53-5-5, 20 KOs) for the WBO Asia Pacific and WBO Asian Boxing Council Championships.
"I'm a warrior, a fighter who'll fight anybody, anywhere," Williams continued. "I'd love to fight at home in The Bahamas. I'm proud of my country. People there are proud of me and behind me; unfortunately, no casino or hotel there will host a show. I train and my manager, Si Stern, sets-up my fights, whether there in Finland, China, Russia or wherever. I'm an international fighter. No matter where I fight, it's in a ring with only two guys, and I'm always confident of knocking out my opponent.
"I thought I was going to defend my title in China. They were going to have me fight on August 12, then in September, and again on October 12th. They're still working on a date but I couldn't wait around. I guess they're on their own schedule, or on Evander Holyfield's (Williams' fight vs. Holyfield was changed three times). We've been patient. This fight came up and with only a three-week notice; we still felt it was worth it. I would still like to fight again in China."
Stern added, "I've suffered over the years trying to get Sherman a fight against the Klitschkos and other top heavyweights. They had no problems sparring with Sherman, but they didn't offer him a fight because he's such a big puncher. They avoided fighting Sherman because they weren't willing to take the risk. It was very frustrating but we never looked back. Now, thank God, Sherman is getting a chance he deserves against Helenius. So, get ready, top heavyweights, 'Tank' is ready, willing and able to get in the ring with you."
"A lot of guys won't fight in Europe because they stand a good chance of getting robbed," Williams concluded. "I'm excited that this fight is on TV (Epix) in America and The Bahamas. I'm fighting in his backyard and it will be an action-packed fight. If I get robbed, though, it won't look as bad knowing people back home will be watching on television I'm not counting on it going the distance but, if it don't knock him out, everyone will at least know that I gave my best and did my job."

HBO BOXING AFTER DARK® : THOMAS DULORME VS. LUIS CARLOS ABREGU,
MAURICIO HERRERA VS. KARIM MAYFIELD AND
MIGUEL VAZQUEZ VS. MARVIN QUINTERO
LIGHTS UP THE HIT LATE-NIGHT RING FRANCHISE SATURDAY, OCT. 27
The latest edition of HBO Sports’® hit late-night boxing series, HBO BOXING AFTER DARK: THOMAS DULORME vs. luis carlos abregu, mauricio herrera vs. karim mayfield and MIGUEL VAZQUEZ VS. MARVIN QUINTERO presents an action-packed tripleheader on SATURDAY, OCT. 27 at 10:15 p.m. (live ET/tape-delayed PT) from Turning Stone Resort Casino in Verona, NY, exclusively on HBO. The team of Bob Papa, Max Kellerman and Roy Jones Jr. will be ringside for the event, which will be available in HDTV, closed-captioned for the hearing-impaired and presented in Spanish on HBO Latino.
Other HBO playdates: Oct. 28 (10:00 a.m.) and 29 (12:15 a.m.)
HBO2 playdates: Oct. 28 (4:00 p.m.) and 30 (midnight)
In the scheduled ten-round welterweight main event, one of boxing’s top prospects, Thomas Dulorme (16-0, 12 KOs) of Carolina, Puerto Rico, puts his flawless record on the line against Luis Carlos Abregu (33-1, 27 KOs) of Salta, Argentina. Abregu, 28, whose only loss came against current welterweight champion Timothy Bradley, will look to use his experience and knockout power to overcome the boxing prowess of the 22-year-old Dulorme. Either fighter could earn a title shot with a win.
The second fight features Mauricio Herrera (18-2, 7 KOs) of Lake Elsinore, Cal., and San Francisco’s Karim Mayfield (16-0-1, 10 KOs) in a scheduled ten-round light welterweight battle. Herrera, 32, most recently lost by unanimous decision in an exciting fight with Mike Alvarado, while Mayfield, 31, improved his spotless record by knocking out the previously undefeated Raymond Serrano in his last fight.
The opening bout features two Mexican nationals going toe-to-toe when Miguel Vazquez (31-3, 13 KOs) of Guadalajara defends his lightweight title against Tijuana’s Marvin Quintero (25-3, 21 KOs). The 25-year-old Vazquez has a significant reach and height advantage, while the left-handed Quintero, also 25, owns a 75% knockout percentage and will look to make a statement with his power punching in this 12-round tilt.
The evening of boxing programming starts at the 10:00 p.m. ET/PT with the premiere of “2 Days: Seth Mitchell” on HBO.
Philadelphia, PA - Gabriel Rosado, the fastest-rising contender in the junior middleweight division, goes for his fourth consecutive knockout and his eighth consecutive win when he boxes Elvin Ayala, of New Haven, CT, in a 10-round bout Saturday evening, Dec. 8, at Pearson/McGonigle Halls on the campus of Temple University.
Sharing the spotlight will be another Philadelphian, Bryant "By By" Jennings, who defends his USBA heavyweight championship against Bowie Tupou, of Tongo, in a scheduled 12-round contest.
The eight-fight live card begins at 7pm and the NBCSN broadcast will begin at 9PM ET.
"A lot of fighters boast they will fight anybody but Rosado actually backs up his words," said promoter J Russell Peltz. "Ayala has fought as a middleweight and even as a super middleweight but none of that fazes Rosado. He's a throwback to the old-time fighters and this will be his fourth fight in 2012.
"Gab could sit around and wait until March when IBF champ Cornelius Bundrage has to fight him, but that's not in Gab's DNA. He's a fighter and fighters want to fight. It's that simple."
The weight limit will be 156 pounds, two pounds over the junior middleweight limit, four under the middleweight limit.
The 26-year-old Rosado is the poster boy for good fighters who came up the hard way. His 21-5 record includes 13 knockouts, including three big ones in 2012 over
Jesus Soto-Karass, of Mexico; Sechew Powell, of Brooklyn, NY; Charles Whittaker, of Georgetown, Cayman Islands.
Rosado is ranked No. 1 in the world by the IBF.
Ayala, 31, has won his last six fights in a row and is 26-5-1, 12 K0s. A pro since 2003, he boxed a 10-round draw with Sergio Mora, of Los Angeles, CA, and was stopped in 12 by Arthur Abraham for the IBF middleweight title in Germany. He has wins over Derrick Findley, of Gary, IN; John Mackey, of Montgomery, AL; Eric Mitchell, of Philadelphia; George Armenta, of Silver Spring, MD.
Originally from Reading, PA, Ayala recently moved back there to train with Marshall Kauffman.
"I think Rosado bit off more than he can chew this time," said Kauffman. "Ayala is the strongest puncher I've ever been associated with, pound-for-pound."
Pearson/McGonigle Halls, at Broad and Motgomery Avenues in North Philadelphia, a 4,500-seat venue at Temple University, has hosted both professional and amateur boxing in the past, but when NBC Sports Network broadcasts the sixth installment of its "Fight Night" series on Dec. 8, it will be the first professional boxing event held at Pearson/McGonigle Halls in over 19 years.
Eight bouts are planned for the Philadelphia card. The fight is promoted by Main Events, Peltz Boxing, and Goossen-Tutor Promotions in association with BAM Boxing. Tickets will go on sale Wednesday, Oct. 24. Contact Peltz Boxing for further ticket info, 215-765-0922, www.peltzboxing.com. Tickets also are on sale at www.comcastTIX.com
Orange, CA (October 23) - Earlier today, Mauricio Herrera (18-2-0, 7 KOs) arrived with his team in New York. The junior welterweight is set to battle against WBO NABO Junior welterweight champion Karim Mayfield (16-0-1, 10 KOs) in a title defense fight at Turning Stone Casino in Verona, New York this Saturday, October 27.
