GFL PRESENTS “JASON SOSA VS BERGMAN AGUILAR” BEGINNING MARCH 30

March 27, 2015

GFL, The Comcast Network and Comcast SportsNet continue their weekly combat sports series, REAL FIGHTS, with world class boxing from Philadelphia as Peltz Boxing and Joe Hand Promotions presents another showstopper!

Jason Sosa of Camden, NJ, riding an eight-fight knockout streak, returns to action when he boxes Bergman Aguilar of Escazu, Costa Rica, in an eight-round junior lightweight fight at the 2300 Arena in South Philadelphia.

The Sosa-Bergman contest, along with an eight-round heavyweight match featuring Joey Dawejko of Philadelphia, headlines a seven-fight card.

Sosa, 26, who knocked out Juan Cruz in his last fight Oct. 18 in Catano, Puerto Rico, is 13-1-3 with 9 K0s. He has been a pro since 2009.
Earlier in 2014, Sosa scored his biggest win when he knocked out Michael Brooks of Long Island, NY, in the ninth round at Bally’s Atlantic City.

Sosa is ranked No. 2 in the United States at 130 pounds by the USBA and No. 31 in the world by the WBC.

“I’m excited to be back fighting in Philadelphia in front of my fans, family and friends who will be crossing the bridge from my hometown of Camden,” said Sosa. “I expect 2015 to be a great year, and I will continue where I left off with my explosive knockouts. I want to thank my manager, Mark Cipparone, of Club 1957 Management, and the entire Rocco’s Collision Team for believing in me and making a lot of things possible. I would like to thank Russell Peltz as well. El Canito is back!”

Sosa has not boxed in Philadelphia since Dec. 8, 2012, when he knocked out Isaac Suarez of Lancaster, PA, in two rounds at Temple University’s McGonigle Hall.

Aguilar, 30, now living in Puerto Rico, is 12-1-1 with 4 K0s. In his last fight April 24 in Panama, Aguilar scored an 11-round decision over previously unbeaten hometown hero Juan Huertas for the interim WBA Fedelatin Title.

A pro since 2008, Aguilar will be making his first start outside Central America.

“I ask for all Costa Rican fans to come out and support me in Philadelphia,” said Aguilar.

Heavyweight prospect Joey Dawejko, who has scored three straight one-round knockouts, takes on Enobong Umohette, of Nigeria, in an eight-round fight.

Dawejko, 24, had a big year in 2014, going 5-0 and beating fringe contender Derric Rossy, of New York, to break onto the heavyweight scene 12 months ago.

A pro since 2009, Dawejko, also known as The Tank, is 13-3-2, 6 K0s. In his last three fights, neither David Williams, of Philadelphia, Yohan Banks, of Redwood City, CA, nor Rayford Johnson, of Longview, TX, were able to survive the first round. Dawejko also defeated then-unbeaten Philadelphia Mark Rideout in 2014.

“This could be the start of a big year for me,” Dawejko said, “so I’m not taking any chances. I’m going away to the mountains to train for this fight. Umohette is a big, strong guy and I need to be prepared. Last year was a rebuilding year for me and I hope to get into the world rankings in 2015.

“I saw Umohette fight on video and I listened to his story. This is a big fight for him, also.”

Umohette (left), 35, now living in Milwaukee, WI, started boxing in 1998. Known as The Nigerian Gentleman, he won his country’s National Amateur Championship in 2005 in the super heavyweight division.

After relocating to Wisconsin, he won that state’s Novice Heavyweight Title in 2007.

Umohette turned pro in 2009 and promptly lost his first fight before going on a nine-fight winning streak which included winning the Wisconsin State Heavyweight Title.

“It will be an honor and a privilege to compete against the highly decorated former World Amateur Champion, Joey Dawejko, in his home state of Pennsylvania, which has a legendary boxing history,” Umohette said. “Dawejko’s very distinguished amateur career and his blazing pro career is testimony to his enormous talent. I look forward to an entertaining bout against The Tank.”

Strikers’ Cup 13 Review

Order Event – http://www.gfl.tv/event/Fight/MuayThai/Fight-Night-13–The-Strikers-Cup/2841

Strikezone Promotions returned to GFL.tv with “Strikers’ Cup 13″ from the Event Center and Sports Bar in Pennsauken, New Jersey.

Tune in to see these gladiators go to battle in one of the most feared combat sports on the planet where honor is everything.

In the main event, for the 132.5 lb Ultimate Striker Female Lightweight Championship, contested under Glory rules, Diana Zhivanaj defeated Brandice Peltier via split decision in a great back and forth fight. Zhivanaj was the aggressor in the first round and scored with combos while staying on her toes as Peltier covered up for most of the round and was against the ropes and when she did respond, she would throw one strike and not follow up with the type of volume punching that Zhivanaj displayed. In the second, Peltier scored more, especially with a front push kick that slowed the offense of Zhivanaj down. But Zhivanaj continued to dart in and out and try to score with quick combos while Peltier settled in and stalked Zhivanaj but did not throw the amount of strikes that Zhivanaj was still doing. In the third round, Peltier had her best round as she scored with hard body kicks and was throwing more than one strike at a time and matching the volume striking of Zhivanaj while also landing the harder blows. But Zhivanaj displayed great footwork and got Peltier back against the ropes where Zhivanaj was able to score with jabs and straights. After separating Zhivanaj scored with her best punch of the night, an overhand right, that connected flush and buckled Peltier for a moment. The action slowed after that with Zhivanaj scoring with punches and Peltier landing some kicks to the body in a great main event that lived up to the hype.
In a 126 lb Glory rules bout, Tyrone Mason defeated Keyner Rodriguez via KO (kick) in the first round. Rodriguez came out with a flying knee that Mason deflected. Rodriguez followed up with a punching combo, when Mason connect with a spinning back fist. Rodriguez scored with a leg kick as this fight started to heat up. The fighters made their way to the center of the ring where Mason unloaded with a spinning back kick and hit Rodriguez perfectly on the jaw and knocked him out. It was a solid win for the rising Mason against the gritty Rodriguez.
In other action, in a 147 lb Glory rules bout, Matt Ramge defeated Titus Simmons via TKO in the third round. It was a hard punching bout with Ramge able to land straight punches from a distance as Simmons tried to mix it up and score from the inside. In the third round, used his reach advantage and continued to score from the outside with straight rights and lead left hooks. Simmons was backed into a corner and Ramge scored with a nice combo and the ref was forced to give a standing 8-count that Simmons could not recover from.

New Legend Boxing International Fight Night Preview

Order Event – http://www.gfl.tv/event/Fight/Boxing/New-Legend-Boxing-International-Fight-Night/2848

Courtesy of proboxing-fans.com

On Saturday, March 28, New Legend Boxing will return to the famed Resorts World Casino New York City with another night of professional boxing for the latest installment of International Fight Night series.

Over the course of boxing history, Cleveland, OH, has been known as a hotbed for producing many talented fighters, including Joey Maxim, Jimmy Bivins and Lloyd Marshall among others. The latest prospect to come out of the hallowed city is undefeated super bantamweight prospect Antonio “Carita” Nieves.

On March 28, the 27-year-old Nieves is making his New York debut, in what will be his first bout scheduled for eight rounds. Nieves was a highly touted amateur winning over 60 fights while becoming a five-time Cleveland Golden Gloves champion, a National Golden Gloves silver medalist and competing in the Olympic Trials. Turning pro in November 2011, Nieves, now 10-0 (5 KOs), had a busy 2014, earning five victories, with three by knockout. In August, Nieves outboxed the 5-0 prospect Justin Lopez over six frames, dropping his foe in the second round en route to winning a shutout unanimous decision.

The 26-year-old lightweight power-punching prospect Scott “Bang Bang” Burrell, 9-2 (6 KOs), twin brother to fellow boxer Dean Burrell, was born in Queens, NY, then raised in London, England, before moving back to the US to turn pro in 2010. Now living in Brooklyn, Burrell trains out of Gleason’s Gym under the tutelage of world-renowned coach Hector Roca. Determined to win his third fight in a row following a controversial six-round split decision defeat back in May 2013, Burrell will be competing in his first eight-round contest.

Popular female fighter Cindy “Checkmate” Serrano will see action in a six-round junior lightweight contest. Currently riding a seven-fight winning streak, the Puerto Rican Brooklynite, 22-5-2 (10 KOs), is now a veteran of the ring, having turned pro back in 2003.

Serrano became a two-time titlist in 2012, picking up the Women’s IBA International super featherweight title that August, winning an eight-round decision over Kerri Hill, then earning another decision victory over Angel Gladney in November to grab the UBF female lightweight title. In what promises to be a barnburner, Serrano will be facing the equally experienced Fatuma Zarika, 24-9-1 (14 KOs), of Nairobi, Kenya, who is a former Women’s International Boxing Federation (IBF) bantamweight titlist. Zarika will be making her US debut.

Charlotte’s Night of Champions – Roy Jones Jr.

March 20, 2015 by · Leave a Comment
Filed under: Boxing News, Past Events, Press Release 

Order Event – http://www.gfl.tv/event/Fight/Boxing/Charlottes-Night-of-Champions–Roy-Jones-Jr/2784

Roy Jones Jr. (60-8, 43 KO) easily defeated journeyman cruiserweight Willie Williams (14-9-2) by second-round TKO on Friday night in Cabarrus, North Carolina. The 46-year-old future Hall of Famer clearly wasn’t tested by his 36-year-old foe.

The nasty left hook started the problems for Williams and the body-head combinations sent him home for the evening. The bout marked the first time Jones has fought in the United States since he won a unanimous decision over Max Alexander in 2011. Over much of the last four years, Jones has been building his cruiserweight resume against lesser-known boxers from all around the world.

Jones knows he can’t fight forever, but he is hoping to get a shot at another world title. In an interview with ESPN.com’s Brian Campbell, Jones said before the fight with Williams: “I’m looking at doing this and seeing how I feel. If I feel well, I will be going after Marco Huck. He agreed to fight me this year if everything goes well.”

Things definitely went well on Friday, but that doesn’t necessarily mean Jones is ready for Huck.

The current champion has held his title for just under six years. He’s also only 30 years old. There’s no question he’d be a huge favorite over Jones if they were to meet in the ring.

Jones is likely inspired by the recent success of former rival Bernard Hopkins. The latter just relinquished the WBA and IBF light heavyweight titles at the age of 49. Jones doesn’t compete in a weight class that is as competitive as the 175-pound division. Still, capturing what would be a title in his fifth division would be an epic accomplishment for Jones.

Because Williams wasn’t able to extend Jones deep into the fight, it’s possible Jones could have one more tune-up before he challenges Huck. That would likely be against another fighter on the same level as Williams.

While his night was short, Williams did at least land what was likely his largest payday. Long after the swelling goes down on his face, Williams will probably look back on Friday’s bout proudly. He was stopped in the second round, but he shared the ring with a living legend.

Strikers’ Cup 13 Preview

Strikezone Promotions returns to GFL.tv on March 21 with “Strikers’ Cup 13” from the Event Center and Sports Bar in Pennsauken, New Jersey. Strikers’ Cup events are hugely successful and showcase the top amateur Muay Thai on the East Coast in Muay Thai and Glory bouts. This card is filled with blue chip prospects looking to prove their mettle to a worldwide audience. Tune in to see these gladiators go to battle in one of the most feared combat sports on the planet where honor is everything.

Chris Santos takes on Bill Muhr in what is sure to be a shootout in the 200lb division. Santos is a well-rounded martial artist who also dabbles in MMA training. Santos is a rising, young, star on the East Coast and is known for making huge strides in such a short amount of time. Muhr brings a strong striking game into his match with Santos, especially with his kicking. These two gladiators plan to fire off combos from every position until one man falls down.

Matt Ramge battles Titus Black at 147lb. Ramge is just coming into his own as a fighter while Black has the experience that has seen him through some tough fights in his career already. This will be a contrast in styles as Ramge and Black look to break down each other with varying game plans as Ramge likes to mix up his attacks while Black only knows one style and that is seek and destroy. Expect a barnburner.

Brandice Pelier fights Diana Zhivanaj in a 132.5lb bout. Peltier is one of the most feared strikers in the Northeast so much so that she has had opponents disappear before fight time. This bout pits two of the most exciting strikers in the region against one another with a lot on the line as these ladies both have strong wills and pack dynamite in their fists. Look for Peltier and Zhivanaj to come out swinging and expect fireworks.

“Strikers’ Cup 13” promises to be a smash success on GFL.tv as all the fighters are coming to throw down in the ring. Don’t miss their follow up show on GFL.tv from Strikezone Promotions. Be sure to catch every punch and kick with this high octane event. Order now and watch it live on March 21 and own it for life on video on demand after that.

GFL REAL FIGHTS – Broadway Boxing: Hardy VS Anderson on TCN, CSN, DISH, DirecTV, FiOS, U-verse

GFL PRESENTS “REAL FIGHTS” ON THE COMCAST NETWORK (TCN), COMCAST SPORTSNET (CSN), DISH, DIRECTV, AT&T U-VERSE AND VERIZON FIOS
GFL PRESENTS “BROADWAY BOXING: HARDY VS ANDERSON” BEGINNING MARCH 23

March 20, 2015

GFL, The Comcast Network and Comcast SportsNet continue their weekly combat sports series, REAL FIGHTS, with world class boxing from NYC as Dibella Entertainment presents another episode of its long running series, Broadway Boxing.

NEW YORK, NY – It was decided that popular female boxer Heather “The Heat” Hardy, 11-0 (2 KOs), will be added to the next installment of DiBella Entertainment’s Broadway Boxing series. The card will take place at B.B. King Blues Club & Grill, in Times Square, New York City. The thrilling six-bout card is headlined by the always-exciting Heather “The Heat” Hardy, known as the “First Lady of DBE” and often referred to as “a female Arturo Gatti”. The card will also feature three up-and-coming prospects and former amateur stars hailing from the former Eastern Bloc, in Ivan Golub, Ivan Baranchyk and Dauren Yeleussinov, all of whom are now living and training in Brooklyn, NY, and co-promoted by DiBella Entertainment and Fight Promotions Inc.

Following her WBC International super bantamweight title victory on October 15 and the premiere of a documentary based on her boxing career, titled “HARDY”, that was executive produced by Lou DiBella, the popular Hardy, from Brooklyn, NY, will step into the ring for the fifth time this year when she squares off against Salt Lake City’s Elizabeth Anderson, 3-5, in an eight-round junior featherweight contest. In her last bout, Hardy, 11-0 (2 KOs), expertly outboxed her opponent over 10 frames, throwing in combination, counterpunching and showing adept footwork, in what was her most impressive performance to date.

DBE-promoted New York Golden Gloves champion Louis Cruz, 9-0 (4 KOs), will see action in a six-round junior welterweight contest. Following a second-place finish at the 2011 National Golden Gloves, the 23-year-old Cruz competed in the 2012 US Olympic Trials before turning pro later that same year. The Bronx-native has already picked up four victories this year and will be determined to stay on course. Facing off against Cruz will be Rogelio Casarez, 7-2 (3 KOs), of Batesville, AR.

The 25-year-old Ukrainian Ivan Golub amassed an astonishing record of 270-32 during his amateur career. He became a five-time Ukrainian National champion, won bronze medals at the Junior World Championships in 2006 and at the World Championships in 2009. He also participated in the World Series of Boxing, winning all five of his bouts. Turning pro this past June, Golub, now 3-0 (2 KOs), is anxious to keep up the career momentum and will compete in a six-round middleweight contest against Josh Williams, 9-6 (5 KOs), of Sheridan, AR.
Also on the undercard is a rematch between undefeated DiBella Entertainment-promoted middleweight prospect Paul Littleton, 9-0-2 (5 KOs), and Lamar Harris, 8-10-4 (4 KOs), in a six-round contest. The two engaged in a captivating battle that ended in a disputed draw, on September 13, in Saint Charles, MO, near Harris’ hometown of St. Louis. The 28-year-old Littleton is a crowd pleaser with an aggressive style, originally from Chicago and now living in Miami, FL. After winning the Chicago Golden Gloves three times while accruing an amateur record of 85-20, Littleton turned pro in December 2011. He has since beaten three undefeated prospects, including the 7-0 Roberto Acevedo. In June 2014, Littleton signed an exclusive promotional agreement with DiBella Entertainment and the rematch against Harris will be his third under the DBE banner.

Belarusian-native junior welterweight Ivan Baranchyk, 1-0 (1 KO), will return to the ring less than three weeks after his professional debut on November 13. Facing Christopher Haney at the Baltimore Arena, in Baltimore, MD, Baranchyk quickly dropped his foe with a straight right then sent him to the canvas for the second and final time with a left hook just 45 seconds into the bout. Looking for his second straight victory, Baranchyk will take on Alfonso Olvera, 1-0 (1 KO), of Tucson, AZ. As an amateur, Baranchyk won gold at the 2010 Class A Vilnuse tournament, 2011 and 2013 Match Event tournament, 2011 Kostukovichi International tournament, 2011 and 2012 Soligorsk Open International tournament, 2012 Class A Liventsev tournament, 2013 Active Military tournament, 2013 Republic of Belarus Open Cup, 2014 Vitebsk University tournament in Belarus, and was an amateur champion of Belarus from 2009-2014.

Very anxious to turn pro is Kazakhstan’s 28-year-old Dauren Yeleussinov. This hard-punching southpaw had an extensive amateur career that saw him compile a 397-23 record, with more than 100 knockouts. He is a four-time National champion for Kazakhstan and has won gold twice at the Universiade Championships as well as at the National Junior Championships. On Wednesday, he will challenge Biloxi, Mississippi’s Anthony Madden, 1-5-1 (1 KO).

American Muay Thai League Review

Order Event – http://www.gfl.tv/event/Fight/MuayThai/American-Muay-Thai-League-/2795

American Muay Thai League returned on GFL.tv with “American Muay Thai League” from the Thurgood Marshall Center in Washington, DC with 8 high octane Muay Thai bouts that showed off the top strikers in the North East and Mid-Atlantic regions.

In the main event, in a 165lb bout, Chase Walden (15-3) from Grindstone Muay Thai defeated Remi Singh of Militia Muay Thai NY (10-3) via unanimous decision. Walden used his height advantage, standing at 6’3”, to score from a distance, but Sigh was also able to score from the outside and Walden had trouble in spots because Singh was a much taller opponent, standing 6’1”, than what Walden was used to. Singh had a strong defense, as he raised up one leg to create a barrier for Walden to fight through. But Walden just went over the top and scored with lead left hooks or straight right hands throughout the fight. There was some clinch work in which both men scored knees to their opponents midsection’s but the fight was won for Walden on the outside as he was able to score with enough single shots and combos that got him the nod with the judges.

In the co-main event, in a 150lb bout, Omar Estevez of Sitan Gym New York defeated Rolando Valdez of UFC Gym Maryland via decision. Estevez controlled the majority of the fight and was relentless on the attack, scoring with leg kicks, body shots and combos to the face of Valdez. Valdez was put on the defensive early on and tried to counter strike with one punch or one kick but Estevez just continued to come forward and apply pressure with an assortment of strikes. It was a great showing for Estevez who looked tremendous against a very durable opponent in Valdez.

If you love the art of striking, there is no better iPPV for you to order than the “American Muay Thai League”. American Muay Thai League always puts on great shows and this event was another home run as the top strikers on the East Coast and Mid-Atlantic went to battle.

Bounded Fist 11 Review

Order Event – http://www.gfl.tv/event/Fight/MuayThai/Bounded-Fist-Muay-Thai-Championship-Mar-7/2789

Bounded Fist returned on GFL and delivered another great night of Muay Thai action with “Bounded Fist 11″ from the Arizona Event Center in Mesa, Arizona. The stacked mega card featured 8 highly contested bouts with 2 finishes, including the main event. Bounded Fist is famous for producing the top pro/am stars in the region and every fight on the card lived up to the hype, especially the main event.

In the main event, for the USMTA Super Lightweight Title, Champion Jason Davis defeated Thomas Aguirre with an impressive TKO victory in the second round to retain his title. Davis came out like a bat out of hell in the first and threw everything but the kitchen sink at Aguirre. Davis scored with elbows, spinning elbows, leg kicks and was fierce in the clinch. It was a one-sided round for Davis. In the second, Davis did not rest on his laurels and started striking with bad intentions from the opening bell. Davis scored with numerous elbows and busted up Aguirre including possibly breaking Aguirre’s nose in after several pinpoint strikes. Aguirre proved what a durable fighter he is by absorbing so much punishment as the striking speed of Davis was on a different level and it was hard for Aguirre to get his strikes off. Davis was able to get a trip takedown from the clinch and then when action resumed landed with some more hard shots that finally dropped Aguirre for good. It was an impressive win for Davis who continues to roll in the Super Lightweight division.

In other action, Erald Faja defeated JT Lopez via decision. Lopez came forward throughout the fight, but Faja showed off great counter punching and kicking to offset Lopez’s attacks. Faja seemed to also score with more combos as he got busier as the fight wore on. Lopez landed some hard shots but not to the level of volume striking of Faja which was probably the difference in the judges’ score cards. Both men showed a ton of heart as they fought hard for the entire fight and never let their foot off the gas.

Ralph Pacheco defeated Ronne Deizion via decision. Both of these young gladiators showed a tremendous amount of heart as they connected with spinning back fists, head kicks and nice combos with their fists. Pacheco displayed a huge amount of volume punching as he was always on the attack. Deizion delivered some terrific counter strikes too. Both fighters showed a solid chin as neither man went down in the fight from a strike. In the end, Pacheco was a little more polished and won the day, but both of these warriors can hold their heads up high after their performances.

Don’t miss this awesome card. Order now to see the science of the eight limbs as “Bounded Fist 11″ brought down the house in the sweltering Arizona night. Watch anytime on video on demand and own this high octane card for life only on GFL.tv.
