New York City (April 8, 2014)—New York area fight fans, get ready for another action-packed evening of professional boxing, featuring many of the best and brightest pugilists in the region.
Promoter Dmitriy Salita is proud and excited to announce a fight card, sure to promise thrilling action, and ferocious knockouts, at the Millennium Theater in Brighton Beach, Brooklyn on May 15. “I am excited about another talent packed show,” Salita said. “The show will showcase multi-cultural NYC with some of the best contenders in the sport, all from different communities. That’s what boxing in New York City is all about!”
Salita’s Star of David Promotions has crafted a top-notch slate, topped by cruiserweight contender Steve Bujaj. The 12-0 Albanian native snapped up the NY State cruiser crown at the Millennium in February, and Salita promises he will be matched tough on May 15 as he continues his push to a world title. Bujaj will bring a rooting section down from Yonkers, where he resides. “Bujaj is an excellent fighter, who is looking to climb up the contender ladder,” Salita said. “He is looking to place himself into title contention this year.”
Jarrell Miller, a promising heavyweight just signed to Star of David, will also see action. The Brooklyn resident, nicknamed “Big Baby,” has been making foes whimper like a newborn; he is 8-0, with 8 KOs. Can 13-2 Vincent Thompson make his “0” go? “Jarrell Miller is one of best, most explosive heavyweight prospects in America,” the promoter said. “He is taking on a tough contender, a fellow prospect, and is very focused on making a statement in this fight.”
Middleweight prospect Steve Martinez wowed the Millennium crowd with his power-punching style at the Theater in February, and Salita is bringing the 14-1 Bronx boxer back for an encore on May 15. Opponent Taronze Washington will be flown in from Texas, having won two of his last three fights, with a desire to silence Martinez’ fans traveling down from the Bronx. “Steve Martinez is back in the ring again and is looking to put on another exciting performance,” Salita said. “Steve is looking to fight top contenders in the division.”
Boxing fans will be entertained by the talented hitter Amanda Serrano, a Puerto Rican-born Brooklyn resident who boasts a 20-1 record. The former WBC super featherweight champion craves another world title shot, ASAP, and needs a win in Brighton Beach to maintain momentum.
Also gloving up May 15 at the Millennium: Dimash Niyazov, a 5-0-2 pugilist from Staten Island; fellow New Yorker Peter Reyes, a 4-0 slugger who seeks the show-stopper KO in every bout; Marco Suarez, a 2-0 prospect from the Bronx; and 3-1 Akil Auguste from Brooklyn.
