Star Boxing marking 20 Years


NEW YORK - This Saturday night, July 28th, will mark the 20 Year Anniversary of Joe DeGuardia’s Star Boxing as they host "ROCKIN FIGHTS 4" at The Paramount in Huntington, New York.

 

"ROCKIN FIGHTS 4"is headlined by ’The Fighting Pride of Huntington, New York", Chris Algieri and tough Texas fighter Raul Tovar in an eight round junior welterweight bout.

 

’It’s been an honor to promote in the Tri-State area for the last twenty years. Boxing fans have come to expect terrific evenings of great fights at our events and we’ve been proud to honor our commitment to them" said DeGuardia who has seen his company rise to one of the most well regarded and longest running and consistent promotional firms in the world.

 

In the first event promoted by Star Boxing on June 30, 1992, perennial contender Larry Barnes won a unanimous decision over Willie Taylor. Barnes would later go on to face boxing legend Felix Trinidad at Madison Square Garden three years later.

 

In an ironic turn of events in the boxing world, DeGuardia had beat Barnes in the 1988 New York State Golden Gloves at Madison Square Garden in the 147 lb. open division.

 

"Another friend of Star Boxing that everyone in boxing knows, HBO Boxing’s Harold Lederman, was one of the judges in that first main event in 1992. He still comes to each of our events when he’s in town."

 

Star Boxing has also been very successful over the years in the development of boxers and providing opportunities for their careers. Additionally, included among the major world-class events they have promoted are the Antonio Tarver/Roy Jones Jr. and Antonio Tarver/Bernard Hopkins world title fights.

 

About the future DeGuardia said, "We’ve got a great team of fighters under the Star Boxing banner, from Algieri and Cletus Seldin along with Manny Gonzalez who’s fighting for the New York State Title on Saturday night to Delvin Rodriguez who was in the 2011 Fight of the Year which we promoted at the Roseland Ballroom. We also have Jason Escalera facing Edwin Rodriguez on HBO at Foxwoods Casino on September 29th. "

 

"Additionally we promote world ranked junior middleweight Demetrius Andrade, and heavyweight prospect Joe Hanks along with many other future champions and contenders, so the future looks very bright and we’re looking forward to many more years of promoting world class events."

 

Advance tickets for "ROCKIN FIGHTS 4", priced at $50 and $100, are available through Ticketmaster, (www.Ticketmaster.com, 800-745-3000) or through The Paramount Box Office, (631) 673-7300.

 

Special VIP/Red Carpet Seating along with advance tickets are also available by calling Star Boxing at (718) 823-2000 or on their website www.StarBoxing.com. Doors will open at 7pm with the first bell at 7:30pm.
