LARA vs FOREMAN Friday Jan 13th live on Spike – Hialeah Park Racing & Casino, Miami

Lara defends his 154-pound world title against former champion Foreman

Erislandy Lara and Yuri Foreman

Erislandy Lara (23-2-2, 13 KOs) will end an eight-month layoff on January 13 when he makes the fifth defense of his world title against former world champion Yuri Foreman (34-2, 10 KOs) at Hialeah Park Racing & Casino in Miami (Spike, 9 p.m. ET/PT).

Lara last fought May 21 in Las Vegas, where he retained his title with a unanimous decision in a rematch with Vanes Martirosyan. That victory followed a TKO of Jan Zaveck in November 2015 at Hialeah Park, where Lara stopped the former 147-pound champion just 41 seconds into Round 3.

A 33-year-old southpaw, Lara is riding a four-fight winning streak since dropping a disputed split decision to Saul “Canelo” Alvarez in a nontitle fight in July 2014.

“I’m very excited to be making my return to the ring in front of my Cuban fans in Miami on January 13,” said Lara, who defected from Cuba to Miami and now resides in Houston. “Yuri Foreman is a former world champion who is dedicated to this sport and will be looking to win another world title. I expect nothing but the best from him.

“On fight night, I’m making another statement and going for the knockout. After this fight, it’s time to unify the division, then move up to win the middleweight titles.”

Foreman, a 36-year-old Israeli who was born in Belarus and now fights out of Brooklyn, New York, won a 154-pound world title in November 2009 when he dethroned Daniel Santos by unanimous decision. However, he lost the crown in his first defense against Miguel Cotto, falling by ninth-round TKO in June 2010.

Foreman then suffered a sixth-round stoppage loss to Pawel Wolak in his next fight, but has since reeled off six consecutive victories. That streak includes a two-year break from boxing in which Foreman became an ordained rabbi.

He returned to the ring a year ago with an eight-round unanimous decision over Lenwood Dozier in Brooklyn. In Foreman’s last fight, he earned a second-round TKO of Jason Davis on June 3.

“I’m thrilled to be fighting for the world title,” said the 5-foot-11 Foreman, who will have a two-inch height advantage over the 5-9 Lara. “I’m really looking forward to showcasing my skills and talent, and becoming a two-time world champion. At this stage of my career, it would be a tremendous accomplishment.

“Lara is very crafty and many elite fighters have had trouble dealing with his style, but I have studied him and am very confident that I will defeat him by presenting him with something he’s never seen before.”

HOLLYWOOD, FL.  – Undefeated lightweight world champion RancesKid Blast” Barthelemy (24-0, 13 KOs) will make his first title defense against former world champion Mickey “The Spirit” Bey (22-1-1, 10 KOs) in the main event of Premier Boxing Champions (PBC) on Spike Friday, June 3 at the Hard Rock Live at the Seminole Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Florida.
 
Televised coverage begins at 9 p.m. ET/PT as unbeaten Puerto Rican prospectEmmanuel Rodriguez (14-0, 10 KOs) takes on hard-hitting Mexican Victor “Pitufo” Proa (28-1-2, 21 KOs) in a 10-round bantamweight affair.
 
“There were rumors that a fight between me and Mickey Bey was on the brink of happening prior to my fight against Denis Shafikov, so now that it is here, I know it was destined to happen,” said Barthelemy.  “I’m not a rookie anymore. I’m not going into this worried or nervous about it being my first title defense at 135. I’m comfortable enough now to see every fight as just another challenge I need to execute my game plan the most effectively and with the least amount of errors.”
 
“Barthelemy won my title, I had to vacate it due to a hand injury, so all he is doing is keeping it warm for me,” said Bey. “Training camp is going great. I have been training hard for over a month. I have the best team in the business, with the most knowledgeable trainers. I’m looking forward to the challenge with him being undefeated and a two-time world champion. We both have a lot of skills, so it will make an entertaining fight for sure.”
 
“I want to challenge all of the bantamweight champions to fight me so they can see a real athlete in the ring,” said Rodriguez. “I have been training hard. This is a lifestyle for me. I have been training since December and on June 3, I am going to deliver a knockout.”
 
“I’m excited about this opportunity against a good young fighter,” said Proa. “I’ve been training hard and feel like this is my time. I’m going to come forward and see what this guy can do.”
 
Tickets for the live event, which is promoted by Kings Promotions, Warriors Boxing,Mayweather Promotions and Panther Promotions, are priced at $130, $80, $60 and $35 and are on sale now.

Doors open at 5:30 pm, with the first fight set to begin at 6:30 p.m. *Additional fees may apply.
 
“This will be a tremendous night of boxing on Spike TV,” said Marshall Kauffman of King’s Promotions. “Barthelemy is an up-and-coming star in the sport and he is facing a former world champion who never lost his belt in the ring. This will be a great fight and there should be a great atmosphere with a lot of Cuban boxing fans there to support their world champion.”
 
“We’re looking forward to bringing a great night of boxing to the State of Florida. We’re giving the fans another treat come June 3rd. The card is stacked with matchups that will undoubtedly be crowd pleasers,” said Leonard Ellerbe, CEO of MayweatherPromotions.   “Both Mickey Bey and Rances Barthelemy have world titles under their belts, so they will bring in the experience of being able to perform, and match it up against one another to see who will come out the best man standing at the end of the night.”
 
“We at Panther Promotions are very excited for this June 3rd card at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino,” said Elliot Alvarado, CEO, Panther Promotions. “We are proudly joining forces with both Mayweather and Kings Promotions, which are featuring PBC on Spike TV. This is going to be a sensational evening of boxing featuring Cuban Lightweight Champion Rances Barthelemy vs. Cleveland’s own former champion, Mickey Bey. Our goal is to bring back the classic fights to the Seminole Hard Rock Live in South Florida.”
 
A Cuban amateur national champion, 29-year-old Barthelemyhas yet to taste defeat since turning pro in 2009. Born in Cuba but now fighting out of Las Vegas, he won a super featherweight world title in July 2014 by defeating Argenis Mendez in impressive fashion, and followed that up with a second round TKO victory over Angino Perez. After dominating former champion Antonio DeMarco in June, he won a world title in a second division when he impressively defeated Denis Shafikov in December.
 
Bey won his world title in 2014 with a decision victory over long reigning champion Miguel Vasquez. The 32-year-old vacated his title due to inactivity and injuries but returned in December to defeat previously unbeaten Naim Nelson by decision to earn himself a shot at the very title he vacated. Bey’s previous victories include defeats against Alan Herrera, Carlos Cardenas and Hector Velazquez.
 
At just 23-years-old, Rodriguez has been on a fast track towards a world title fight since turning pro in 2012. He made his U.S. debut in November by stopping Eliecer Aquino after previously taking down Gabor Molnar, Luis Hinojosa and Alex Rangel in 2015. The Manati, Puerto Rico-born fighter will bring his exciting style into the ring against another tough opponent on June 3.
 
Fighting out of Monterrey, Mexico, Proa will be fighting in the U.S. for the third time when he takes on Rodriguez on June 3. The 31-year-old was unbeaten in his first 28 pro starts and has won his last two bouts, including most recently a first round stoppage of Oswaldo Delgado in February.

The SHO EXTREME bouts will precede a SHOWTIME CHAMPIONSHIP BOXINGtripleheader that will feature Ruslan Provodnikov taking on John Molina Jr. in what should be an action-packed junior welterweight bout for as long as it lasts.
 
Tickets for the live event, which is promoted by Banner Promotions, Inc., are priced at $85, $60, $45 and $35 and are on sale now. Tickets can be purchased in person at the Turning Stone Box Office, by calling 877.833.SHOW, or online at Ticketmaster (www.ticketmaster.com).
 
Monroe Jr., of nearby Rochester, N.Y., and Thompson, of Newark, N.J., have near identical records. Monroe is 19-2 with six knockouts, Thompson’s 17-2 with six knockouts.
 
The 29 year-old Monroe won the 2014 Boxcino Middleweight Tournament with victories overDonatas Bondorovas (18-4-1), Vitaly Kopylenko (23-0) and Brandon Adams (14-0).  He followed Boxcino up with an impressive 10-round unanimous decision over perennial contender Brian Vera last January.
 
Monroe’s win streak set up an opportunity on May 16, 2015, to fight middleweight kingpin Gennady Golovkin. Monroe put up a solid effort and gave Golovkin his toughest test to date, but came up short in his title opportunity.
 
“I am glad to be back, and I look forward to fighting in front of my loyal fans who will come from Rochester to see me fight,” Monroe said.
 
The 27 year-old Thompson won the 2015 Boxcino Junior Middleweight tournament with wins over Ricardo Pinell (10-1-1), Stanyslav Skorokhod (9-0) and Brandon Adams (17-1).
 

Following the 2015 Boxcino tournament, Thompson traveled to Manchester, England to fight undefeated Liam Smith for the WBO Junior Middleweight title on Oct. 10, 2015.  Thompson was impressive and was ahead on the scorecards before being stopped in the seventh round.

“I have been training hard, and I look forward to fighting another Boxcino champion like Willie Monroe,” Thompson said. “It should make for a great fight.”

 
Since winning the Boxcino tournament, when he stopped Donovan Dennis in the eighth round on May 22, 2015, Fedosov has been out of the ring with lingering injuries. Now he is back training at the famed Wild Card Gym in Los Angeles readying for his ring return.
 

“I am glad that I will finally be getting back in the ring,” Fedosov said. “I got some time to rest and now I feel better and stronger than ever. I just want to get in that ring on June 11. I am looking forward to putting on a great show as I look for a major fight.”

Heredia, of Merida, Mexico, will be looking for a signature victory to catapult his career and become a player in the suddenly open heavyweight division.

 
“This is a big opportunity for me,” he said. “I was scheduled to be in the Boxcino tournament, but I had an injury, and I feel I would have won it.  Now to be able to face and beat the champion will prove what I thought all along.”

It’s being billed as “World Heavyweight Champs” and features former 2-time heavyweight champ, Shannon Briggs, as its headliner.  There is no doubt that Briggs (58-6-1, 51 KOs) will have a very aggressive mentality as he steps into the ring that night to take on Mike Marrone (21-4, 15 KOs).  Even though Briggs, who currently holds the world record for 1st round KOs @ 38, needs no motivation to make an attempt at keeping that record going, it certainly doesn’t hurt to have some.
 
And, have some he shall, as his self-proclaimed arch nemesis, Wladimir Klitschko, will be ringside.  These days, Shannon can be found just about wherever Wlad is hanging out.  Briggs has done everything in his power to get under Klitschko’s skin in an attempt to set up a match-up, where Shannon would like his shot at reclaiming glory as the lineal heavyweight champion once again.  There is no doubt in my mind that – provided the fight goes Shannon’s way and he is victorious – he will shout and heckle the current #1-ranked heavyweight in the world, calling him out and (perhaps) even chase him around the arena (wouldn’t be surprised).
 
Along with Klitschko, expected in attendance will be at least 20 former heavyweight champions, including the likes of Mike Tyson, Evander Holyfield, Riddick Bowe, Lennox Lewis, Bruce Seldon, Leon & Michael Spinks, Roy Jones Jr, John Ruiz, James “Bonecrusher” Smith, Hasim Rahman, Michael Moorer, George Foreman, among many others.  If you are even a little bit of a boxing fan, this is an event that should not be missed.  The boxing celebrity promises to be incredible and will not stop at just these champions.  No doubt other heavyweights like Razor Ruddock and Jameel McCline will grace us with their presence, as they are locals.  Of course, who can forget that there will undoubtedly be many non-heavyweights in attendance as well.  I can’t imagine Warrior’s own Glenn Johnson not showing up, as he lives down the street.  How can Leon & Michael come all the way to South Florida and not pick up Corey along the way?
 
Now, I’m not trying to take the spotlight away from center stage, however.  Need I remind you that there will be 16 professional heavyweights in action Saturday night?  I’m expecting hard shots and knockouts galore!  We may even have the privilege of seeing a future heavyweight champ lace them up on that night.  All in all, this is an event for the ages; one that people will be talking about for years to come.  “Picture if you will,” they will say, “a stadium filled with world-class professional fighters, Miami Dolphins players, Miami Heat players, Hall of Famers, celebrities, and a few thousand fans on hand…  and, I was there.”
 
Will you be there?

A Worthy Welterweight

by Mike Feinberg

It’s no surprise to anyone who knows a thing or two about boxing that the welterweight division is the most talent-filled division in the sport of boxing.  Two of boxing’ best welterweights (not named Mayweather or Pacquiao) squared off last night at the MGM in Las Vegas in front of a packed house live on NBC’s Premier Boxing ChampionsAdrien Broner, 30-1, entered the fight having only tasted defeat one time.  His lone loss came at the hands of Marcos Maidana, who you may recall fought Floyd Mayweather, Jr. twice in 2014.  Broner’s opponent for the night was former IBF Welterweight Champion Shawn Porter, 25-1-1, whose only loss came by the hands of undefeated Englishman Kell Brook, who is a possible front-runner for Mayweather’s final opponent in September.  The fight started out very awkwardly, with both men unable to find an immediate groove until later on…..

Rd 1 – Porter began backing Broner up against the ropes.
Porter started lunging & landing cleanly.
Porter 10, Broner 9

Rd 2 – Porter continued with the same tactics.  Broner was throwing wildly & missing his target.
Porter 10, Broner 9

Rd 3 – Broner began holding & pushing.  The fighters were fighting closely.  There was no clear-cut aggressor in the fight so far.
Porter 10, Broner 9

Rd 4 – Porter became more aggressive this round.  Porter kept the fight in close.  Porter was not allowing Broner to open up and box.
Porter 10, Broner 9

Rd 5 – Porter began coming forward.  Broner found some room to fight.  Broner landed some big counter-shots.
Broner 10, Porter 9

Rd 6 – Broner got comfortable and began finding a rhythm.  Broner was fighting off his back foot & landing shots.
Broner 10, Porter 9

Rd 7 – The fight got very sloppy.  There was way too much holding and clinching.  There were no clean punches or power shots.
Porter 10, Broner 9

Rd 8 – Porter began landing some decent shots.  Porter was throwing clubbing shots w/ KO power.  However, Porter’s shots were not landing cleanly.
Porter 10, Broner 9

Rd 9 – This was a fairly even round.  Broner was on the move and was sticking & moving.
Broner 10, Porter 9

Rd 10 – Porter began landing more shots now and landing them with both hands.  Porter was looking for a KO.  Porter was clearly landing the harder shots this round.
Porter 10, Broner 9

Rd 11 – Porter was trying to work and was landing some hard shots.  Broner was holding & running.  Broner lost a point for holding midway through the round.  Porter looked to be in complete control now.
Porter 10, Broner 8

Rd 12 – Broner was clearly behind on points.  Broner lands a devastating left hook that drops Porter just seconds into the round.  Porter was able to recover and hang on.  It was a strong Round 12 by both men.
Broner 10, Porter 8

The fight went to a decision.  My scorecard reflected 115-111 for Porter.  The judges’ scorecards showed:
114-112, 115-111, & 118-108 all for your winner, Shawn Porter.

Next month, Keith “One Time” Thurman will be fighting in Tampa.  If he is successful, my opinion is that a Porter v. Thurman match-up is a great way to see who is one of the most dominant in the division.

Welterweight Action from Warriors Boxing and Hialeah Park Raceway and Casino.

By Matthew Benoliel The Fighting News Repotrter

March 26, 2015. Miami, Florida. Welterweight Fredrick Lawson (23-0, 20 KOs) “doesn’t believe in knockouts,” but you wouldn’t know it by looking at his record. In the pre-fight sound byte, Lawson proclaimed that he wanted a war, to be tested, to go the distance and may the best man win. In Thursday night’s bout against the veteran Brandeis Prescott, Lawson took advantage of the opportunity to prove himself against a dangerous opponent, a man who once knocked out Amir Khan in one round. Although smaller, having spent most of his career in the lightweight and light welterweight divisions, Prescott is more experienced and is arguably the better boxer. He represents a step-up in the quality of opposition as Lawson has many of his wins against fighters with zeroes in the first column of their records.

After an exciting two rounds, Lawson was awarded a knockdown after an illegal blow that landed on the back on Prescott’s head. Prescott lost his footing, possibly due to a wet canvas. At any rate, this knockdown had an effect on the outcome of the fight. After winning most of the early rounds, Lawson’s energy seemed to fade in round seven and the younger, stronger fighter failed to capitalize in any of the later rounds. This was a close fight that could have gone either way on the judge’s scorecards. Unfortunately, Lawson couldn’t find a decent punch to follow up his otherwise impressive and accurate jab in rounds nine and ten. At the same time, Prescott seemed to be giving in to his age, his swollen eyes and the Miami humidity. In the end, the split decision went to Frederick Lawson with the judges scoring the bout 95-94, 95-94, and 93-96.

ESPN Championship Pro Boxing Returns to South Florida

On March 26, 2015 Hialeah Park Racing and Casino will once again host “Noche De Combates” along with co-promoters Warriors Boxing Promotions for ESPN’s Thursday Night Fights.

Headlining the event is Breidis “El Khanqueror” Prescott (27-6, 20 KOs) of Colombia vs. Fredrick “General Okunka” Lawson (23-0, 20 KOs) of Ghana.   This will be a key fight for the local favorite Prescott, who fights out of Miami.  Prescott, who KO’d Amir Khan in 2008, has always been an exciting fighter and is at a point in his career where he needs to put another W on his record.  The undefeated Lawson is a formidable opponent whose fight career includes just two bouts in the United States, but his record speaks for itself.

Also on the card are two undefeated Cuban Heavyweights, Yasmany “El Tiburon” Consuegra (16-0, 14 KOs) taking on Robert Alfonso (4-0).

The card is also expected to include the Lightweight debut of the undefeated reigning IBF Super-Featherweight champion Rances “Kid Blast” Barthelemy (21-0, 12KOs).  Another hometown favorite fighting out of Miami, the Cuban-born Barthelemy always puts on a good show and it will be exciting to see what he can do in the Lightweight division.

AGAINST JOSE ANGEL “SILVER BOY” RODRIGUEZBATTLE AIRS LIVE ON FOX SPORTS 1 AND FOX DEPORTES OCT. 14 FROM THE BB&T CENTER IN SUNRISE, FLORIDASPECIAL GUEST, FORMER WORLD CHAMPION, ROY JONES, JR. WILL MAKE AN APPEARANCETickets On Sale Now!

 

SUNRISE, FLORIDA (Sept. 18) – Golden Boy Promotions returns to the BB&T Center in Sunrise, Florida on Monday, Oct.14, for the latest edition ofGolden Boy Live! on FOX Sports 1 and FOX Deportes featuring unbeaten junior middleweight Jermell “Iron Man” Charlo against New York City southpaw Jose Angel “Silver Boy” Rodriguez.

The event will also feature a special guest appearance by boxing superstar and former World Champion Roy Jones Jr.

“Rodriguez is a tough veteran who has definitely fought quality opposition,” said Charlo. “It’s my job to make him look like an amateur and get him out of there. That’s what I plan on doing on October 14.”

“This is a great opportunity and I thank Golden Boy Promotions and FOX Sports 1 for making this happen,” said Rodriguez. “Now it’s up to me to get the job done and I’m more confident than ever that my hand will be raised.”

“We are very much looking forward to bringing the Golden Boy Live! series to the BB&T Center,” said Richard Schaefer, CEO of Golden Boy Promotions. “One of the best parts of consistently hosting this Monday night fight series, is the opportunity to showcase up and coming fighters in different cities so that fight fans across the country have the chance to see great fights live.”

Charlo vs. Rodriguez, a 10-round junior middleweight bout, is presented by Golden Boy Promotions and Sunrise Sports & Entertainment and sponsored by Corona and O’Reilly Auto Parts. The BB&T Center doors open at 7:00 p.m. ET and the first bell rings at 8:00 p.m. ET. The FOX Sports 1 and FOX Deportes bi-lingual simulcast will air live at 9:00 p.m. ET/6:00 p.m. PT. Additional televised undercard bouts will be announced shortly.

Tickets priced at $196.25 (VIP Tables), $75, $50 and $25, not including applicable service charges, are now available for purchase at all Ticketmaster outlets, by calling (800) 745-3000, online at http://www.ticketmaster.com and at the BB&T Center box office.

Houston’s Jermell Charlo (21-0, 10 KO’s) has stepped up big time in 2013, winning both the WBC Continental Americas and USBA Junior Middleweight Titles with his victories over Harry Joe Yorgey and Demetrius Hopkins, respectively. Now hoping to keep his unbeaten run intact when he battles the upset-minded Rodriguez, the 23-year-old “Iron Man” promises a performance to remember when he competes in front of the nation on FOX Sports 1 and FOX Deportes.

A versatile veteran who has won five of his last six bouts, 34-year-old Jose Angel Rodriguez (17-2-1, 2 KO’s) is coming off of back-to-back victories over Russell Jordan and Denis Douglin that have him in fine stead heading into the biggest fight of his career against Charlo on Oct. 14. And given his southpaw style and experience, “Silver Boy” can certainly make it a tough night for the hot prospect in Florida.

Golden Boy Promotions Announces Second Boxing Series Event At The BB&T Center Set For Saturday, June1 Featuring Braulio Santos vs. Derrick Wilson And
Daquan Arnett vs. Irving Garcia  On FOX Sports Networks, FOX Deportes And FUEL TV

Special Guest Appearance by Tommy “The Hitman” Hearns

SUNRISE, Fla. – Golden Boy Promotions and Sunrise Sports & Entertainment announced today that the second Golden Boy Boxing Series event is set for Saturday, June 1 at the BB&T Center with a world class doubleheader featuring Puerto Rican knockout artist Braulio Santos facing tough prospect Derrick Wilson in a 10-round featherweight main event and a 10-round welterweight co-main event that pits unbeaten Floridian Daquan Arnett against Puerto Rican veteran Irving Garcia which will be televised on FOX Sports Net, FOX Deportes and FUEL TV.

The event will also feature a special guest appearance by former World Champion Tommy “The Hitman” Hearns.

Santos vs. Wilson is presented by Golden Boy Promotions and Sunrise Sports & Entertainment and sponsored by Corona. Doors open at 7:30 p.m. and the first bell rings at 8 p.m.  The FOX Sports Networks and FOX Deportes bi-lingual simulcast will air live at 10 p.m. ET/7 p.m. PT.  FUEL TV will rebroadcast the fight on Sunday, June 30 at 12 p.m. ET/9 a.m. PT.

Tickets priced at $196.25 (VIP Tables), $96.25, $46.25 and $21.25 not including applicable service charges, are on sale and available for purchase at all Ticketmaster outlets, by calling (800) 745-3000, online at www.ticketmaster.com or at the BB&T Center box office.

In addition to the June 1 event, the BB&T Center and Golden Boy Promotions will host additional live boxing events on Oct. 12, 2013 and Jan. 14, 2014.  Fight fans can purchase annual subscriptions for the three remaining events inclusive of VIP seating and boxing legend meet and greets by calling 954-835-CLUB.

23-year-old featherweight sensation Braulio Santos (10-0, 9 KO’s) has drawn comparisons to several Puerto Rican greats from the past thanks to his fast and heavy hands that have seen him knockout nine of his 10 professional opponents with six falling in the first round.  Fresh off of a 57 second knockout over 7-1 Kevin Hoskins in March, Santos will look for another quick finish in his third bout of 2013 on June 1.

A gutsy competitor who always shows up to fight, Fort Myers, Florida’s Derrick Wilson (9-4-2, 3 KO’s) hopes to snap a two-bout losing streak when he takes on Santos in his home state this June.  Best remembered for his first round knockout over then unbeaten Charles Huerta in 2009, the 24-year-old will look to recapture that form and expects to be at his best with home state fans in his corner against the highly-regarded Santos.

A 2009 Junior Olympic national champion, 20-year-old Daquan Arnett (10-0, 6 KO’s) of Winter Park, Fla. has been equally dazzling as a professional with his speed and power leaving opponents searching for answers that never arrive.  In his last two fights, Arnett has tarnished the unbeaten records of Jeremiah Wiggins (TKO 4) and Brandon Quarles (W 8) and he plans on defeating the veteran Garcia on June 1.

Hailing from Vega Baja, Puerto Rico, Irving Garcia (17-8-3, 8 KO’s) is a battle-tested warrior who has traded leather with Ishe Smith, Mike Jones, Luis Abregu and Said Ouali over the course of his nearly 15-year career.  Geared up to show rising star Arnett a thing or two this June, the 34-year-old can inject new life into his career with a win over the highly-touted prospect.

Omar Henry has long been considered one of the top prospects in boxing. He earned a stellar amateur record of 60-5, and has remained undefeated in 12 professional contests.  Henry is now anxious to achieve the greatness that so many have predicted for him.

Young Mexican James de la Rosa is expected to provide Henry with the most difficult challenge of his young career.  Fighting out of South Texas, de la Rosa would love nothing more than to snap Henry’s unbeaten streak.  An excellent boxer with better-than-average power, de la Rosa is known for his speed and combinations, which have resulted in his 12 knockouts.

In the co-featured main event, two undefeated fighters—both 13-0—will tangle at lightweight when Angelo Santana meets Juan Garcia.

Santana was a two-time national champion in Cuba before heading to Miami to follow his girlfriend and dreams of winning a world championship.  Now married to that girlfriend, Santana is closing in on his first world-title shot.  At 24, Santana has matured to the point where he has stopped his last six opponents within four rounds or less.  In his last appearance, Santana earned his best win against a quality opponent in world-class contender Justin Savi, who he dispatched with a third round technical knockout on June 23.

Standing in his way is Garcia. No stranger to facing undefeated prospects, Garcia defeated William Jackson (10-0-1) last year. Garcia turned heads after he scored a shocking upset over highly touted Cuban Yordenis Ugas, who was 11-0 before they met on March 23.

A full undercard will be presented.  The event is promoted by Don King Productions.  Doors open at 7:30 p.m. Henry vs. de la Rosa and Santana vs. Garcia will be televised on “ShoBox: The Next Generation” live beginning at 11 p.m. ET/PT (delayed on the West Coast).
