3 Fighters Spotlight on ShoBox: The New Generation

GCP


Greg Cohen of Greg Cohen Promotions and Vito Mielnicki of GH3 Promotions will enjoy another important night of televised action for the fighters they co-promote this Friday, January 17, when no less than three of them appear live in separate bouts on the 2014 season kick off of ShoBox: The New Generation at the Cook Convention Center in Memphis, Tennessee.


Headlining that night will be once-beaten Canadian prospect Tony "Lightning" Luis (17-1, 7 KO’s) in a 10-round main event against undefeated, but untested, Ukrainian Ivan Redkach (15-0, 13 KOs) for the USBA Lightweight Championship.

Other GCP/GH3 fighters scheduled for action in co-featured bouts on the same show are undefeated future champion John "Apollo Kidd" Thompson (14-0, 5 KOs) of Newark, New Jersey, taking on Frank Galarza (11-0-2, 7 KOs) of Brooklyn in an eight-round junior middleweight matchup and newest star, middleweight Antoine Douglas (11-0, 7 KOs), in a solid test against fellow undefeated Marquis Davis (8-0-2, 5 KOs) in an eight-rounder.

"This is Tony’s chance to show the world what he’s made of," said Greg Cohen. "He’s in with a guy who has a lot of hype around him, but Tony’s been working very hard to take that away and keep it for himself. We’re looking to pull a very big surprise in the main event that night."

Cohen also says his two other prospects are in for big nights.

"John Thompson has passed every test in his young career with flying colors and this outstanding ShoBox card will be another chance for him to showcase his enormous talents against an undefeated opponent. And Antoine Douglas, who has future star written all over him, has the chance to announce his arrival on the world stage. I’m very excited for all my fighters and the opportunities they have in front of them."

"Our fighters are in tough," said Vito Mielnicki, "and each of them will need to be at their best. But we have total confidence in each of them. Now is their time to shine. Thanks to Showtime for helping make this terrific night of boxing a reality."

Opening the Four-Fight Shobox: The New Generation event will be junior welterweight Maurice Hooker (12-0-1, 9 KOs) facing fellow undefeated Abel Ramos (8-0, 4 KOs) in an eight-round bout. The live broadcast begins at 10 p.m. ET/PT (delayed on the West Coast) on SHOWTIME®.

This night of world-class boxing is being presented by DiBella Entertainment, in association with GH3 Promotions, Greg Cohen Promotions and Prize Fight Boxing.
