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.”

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).

March 7, 2015

GFL, The Comcast Network and Comcast SportsNet continue their weekly combat sports series, REAL FIGHTS, with world class MMA as Global Proving Ground presents another show stopper with GPG 18 featuring a full lineup of world class MMA from the GPG Event Center in Pennsauken, New Jersey.GPG has quickly established itself as a rising combat sports promotion on the East Coast and this event further cemented their credibility within the region.

In the main event, Brandon Wheeler battles Anthony Dill. Both of these fighters have their backs against the wall and are looking to climb up the ladder in GPG. A victory here will do that for one of them. Wheeler is an aggressive fighter who always pushes the pace and tries to get his opponent to make a tactical mistake. Wheeler has a very underrated submission game and might look to get this fight to the ground early. If Dill stumbles, will Wheeler be in the right place to finish the fight? Dill is a great standup fighter and loves to throw combos from a variety of angles. Dill will look to keep the fight standing and finish Wheeler off with a KO.
In the co-main event, Peter Petties fights Brandon Pennington. Both Petties and Pennington are very young in the sport and are matched up in a battle of two highly touted prospects. Petties has great counter punching, while Pennington is known for throwing hard leg kicks. This should be a nice standup battle as both men are looking for a highlight reel knockout.

GFL PRESENTS “TEAM FIGHTING CHAMPIONSHIP 3” BEGINNING MARCH 2

February 27, 2015

GFL, The Comcast Network and Comcast SportsNet continue their weekly combat sports series, REAL FIGHTS, with world class MMA as TFC presents another show stopper with Team Fighting Championship 3 featuring a full lineup of countries competing in 5 on 5 team MMA in one giant ring. The reality of fighting changed forever in 1993 with the inaugural UFC event. TFC showed that in a team setting, many times with uneven odds, many of the styles and techniques that work well in traditional MMA are not effective and can actually put you at a disadvantage.

Teams scheduled to compete are from Poland, Russian, Brazil, UK, USA and Latvia. The early favorites are, returning champions Poland, and the USA and Latvia who have challenged for the title in previous events, with Russia being the wildcard and having the fire power to pull off the victory. If you haven’t witnessed team fighting MMA, you are in for a treat. Nothing can prepare you for this sport and spectacle.

James Jefferson was tentative the first time he saw Team Fighting Championship. It was kind of like MMA, except there were 10 men in a ring and they were all fighting each other at once.

“I cringed,” Jefferson told MMAFighting.com. “Until I really experienced it, watched all the film, watched how they ran it, I was hesitant.”

“It’s a group fight,” Jefferson said. “It’s a gang fight. It’s more or less a barroom brawl without the bottles.”

TFC adheres to the unified rules of mixed martial arts for the most part. But it is done elimination style. When a fighter taps or gets knocked out, he is out and his team is down a man. That can lead to 2-on-1 or 3-on-1 — or worse — situations. There are instances where an athlete can get caught in a chokehold and kicked in the face at the same time.

A five-man team cannot exceed a combined weight of 500 kilograms (or just over 1,102 pounds). That’s an average of about 220 pounds per fighter. The format is round-robin tournament-based, so teams will be competing multiple times in one day.

TFC is illegal in the United States and most other countries with sanctioning bodies.

Is this too violent? Jefferson acknowledges “there is a greater danger level” than typical MMA. But he also doesn’t think something like this should be banned.

“You could get injured in a car accident,” he said. “These are professional athletes. They’re trained, they’re skilled.”
Team Fighting Championship is held in a 30,000 square-foot arena that is completely empty. The display is meant for television viewers only. The fight takes place in a 40 by 40 ring with five referees.

GFL PRESENTS “REAL FIGHTS” ON THE COMCAST NETWORK (TCN) & COMCAST SPORTSNET (CSN)
GFL PRESENTS “GLOBAL PROVING GROUND 17” BEGINNING FEBRUARY 2

January 29, 2015

GFL, The Comcast Network and Comcast SportsNet continue their weekly combat sports series, REAL FIGHTS, with world class MMA as Global Proving Ground presents another show stopper with Global Proving Ground 17, featuring a full lineup of extreme cage fights emanating from the GPG Event Center in Pennsauken, New Jersey.

In the main event, Sam Oropeza (12-2) will meet Timonthy Woods (8-4) in a middleweight bout that has created quite a buzz in the MMA world as Oropeza is coming off a successful stint in Bellator where he reeled off 4 wins in a row with the top rated organization.
Philadelphia native, Oropeza, recently made a move to the middleweight division after missing the 170 lbs. mark at Bellator 118 on May 1, 2014. Oropeza lost his opportunity to fight Andrey Koreshkov in the Bellator welterweight tournament final.

Oropeza returned to the cage in October where he defeated fellow middleweight, Gary Tapusoa, via first round technical knockout. Oropeza is currently riding a seven fight win streak, last defeated by Giedrius Karavackas via scarf hold arm-lock in 2011.
Oropeza will be fighting outside of the Bellator cage for the first time in three fights when he faces Woods in the GPG main event.
Like Oropeza, Woods recently fought under the Bellator banner. At Bellator 118 he defeated Eugene Fadiora via unanimous decision.
Wood’s victory put him back into the win column after losing a three round split decision to Mike Stewart at Cage Fury Fighting Championships 22. Woods has been unable to collect two consecutive wins since defeating Ronald Stallings via knockout in April 2008.
Woods currently fights of Temple Hills, Maryland.

Both fighters has proven to favor the striking game. Half of Oropeza’s victory come from TKO/KO. Woods is the owner of four TKO/KO victories.

GFL REAL FIGHTS Presents GPG USA VS Russia Beginning January 19 on TCN & CSN Comcast

GFL PRESENTS “REAL FIGHTS” ON THE COMCAST NETWORK (TCN) & COMCAST SPORTSNET (CSN)
GFL PRESENTS “GPG CHRISTMAS IN THE CAGE: USA VS RUSSIA” BEGINNING JANUARY 19

January 16, 2015

GFL, The Comcast Network and Comcast SportsNet continue their weekly combat sports series, REAL FIGHTS, with world class MMA as Global Proving Ground presents another show stopper with GPG Christmas in the Cage: USA VS Russia, featuring a full lineup of extreme cage fights emanating from Pennsauken, New Jersey.

In the main event for the GPG 170lb Title, Russian rising star Khusein Khaliev (8-1) and accomplished veteran fighter Tenyeh Dixon (10-11) square off with gold on the line. Dixon is a slick fighter with solid striking combos while Khaliev is more methodical and wants to get the fight to the ground. This will be the classic striker versus grappler match and if Dixon can keep the fight on the feet and avoid the takedowns of Khaliev, this will be a long fight. If Khaliev can get the fight to the ground, this could be a quick night as Khaliev is very dangerous on the ground.

In other action, Mervin Rodriguez (6-8-1) battles Solan Abanokov (4-2) in a featherweight clash. Rodriguez is a gritty fighter who likes to break his oppoennt’s will inside the cage. Look for Rodriguez to be pushing the pace and try to grind and wear down Abanokov from the opening bell. Abanokov brings heavy hands into the cage and can end the fight with one punch. Abanokov plans to land early and often and he will need to if he is going to overcome the aggressiveness of Rodriguez.

GFL REAL FIGHTS Presents Broadway Boxing: Hardy VS Anderson Beginning January 12 on TCN & CSN Comcast

GFL PRESENTS “REAL FIGHTS” ON THE COMCAST NETWORK (TCN) & COMCAST SPORTSNET (CSN)
GFL PRESENTS “BROADWAY BOXING: HARDY VS ANDERSON” BEGINNING JANUARY 12

January 9, 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).

GFL REAL FIGHTS Presents CFFC 44 Debuting on January 5 on TCN and CSN Comcast

GFL PRESENTS “REAL FIGHTS” ON THE COMCAST NETWORK (TCN) & COMCAST SPORTSNET (CSN)
GFL PRESENTS “CFFC 44” BEGINNING JANUARY 5

January 3, 2015

GFL, The Comcast Network and Comcast SportsNet continue their weekly combat sports series, REAL FIGHTS, with world class boxing as CFFC presents another show stopper with CFFC 44: Bezerra VS Makashvili, featuring a full lineup of extreme cage fights emanating from the Sands Casino in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. This event will showcase the top regional MMA stars along the Eastern seaboard as CFFC presents another hard-hitting event anchored by 2 title fights!

In the main event, in a rematch, for the CFFC Featherweight Title, Champion Alexandre Bezerra defends his title for the first time against former Champion Levan Makashvili. Bezerra won the title after a majority decision at “CFFC 38”. These two 145 lb fighters are two of the top prospects in North America and they are going to continue their epic battle on December 13. Bezerra prefers to stand and strike while Makashvili is a great submission specialist. The question of this fight will be who will win the clinch as if Makashvili can get the fight to the mat he will have a huge advantage. If Bezerra can keep the fight standing he will be able to score with huge low kicks and slow down the shots of Makashvili in the later rounds. Bezerra will need to be on point with his takedown defense because Makashvili will be relentless with his takedown attempts because he does not want to have another 5-round war predominantly contested in a kickboxing match where Bezerra is strongest. Makashvili is bound and determined to get the fight to the ground and if that happens, he could reclaim his title via tapout.

In the co-main event, for the vacant CFFC Flyweight Championship, Darren Mima (5-2) fights WSOF vet Sidemar “Sideco” Honorio (8-4). Mima has made a name for himself around the East Coast MMA circuit as a gritty durable fighter who always comes in shape and ready to battle. Mima is a grinder and likes to wear down his opponents over the course of a full fight and will look to tire Honorio out and then finish hi in the championship rounds. Honorio is a champion with another organization and has had numerous title fights so he will not be phased by the bright lights and what is at stake. Honorio is coming off a TKO victory in his last fight and 5 of his 8 wins have come via stoppage. Look for Honorio to mix it up early and often and try and make this battle a dog fight with Mima.
In other action, in the featherweight division, Bellator vet, Lester Caslow (12-8) takes on Justin Dalton (8-8). Caslow is no stranger to tough fighters as he will pose the strongest test to date for Dalton. Caslow is battle-tested in the cage and the Bellator veteran has KO power in both hands as well as a strong grappling game to go with it. Dalton is a terrific striker having 6 wins via KO or TKO. Dalton is dangerous until the last bell and will be looking to take Caslow out with a punch or kick. The winner of this bout could be in line for a future title shot. It should be a barnburner.

GFL PRESENTS “REAL FIGHTS” ON THE COMCAST NETWORK (TCN) & COMCAST SPORTSNET (CSN)
GFL PRESENTS “JOE HAND PROMOTIONS: WEBSTER VS SAI” BEGINNING DECEMBER 22

December 19, 2014

GFL, The Comcast Network and Comcast SportsNet continue their weekly combat sports series, REAL FIGHTS, with world class boxing as Joe Hand Promotions presents another show stopper with Webster VS Sai, featuring a full lineup of up and coming boxers from around the East Coast.

Undefeated super middleweight contender Derrick “Take It to the Bank” Webster will headline the third installment of Parx Casino Tuesday Night Fights.

The 6-foot- 4 Glassboro, N.J., resident, who owns an impressive 17-0 record with eight knockouts, will take on Obodai Sai (23-1, 17 KOs) of Ghana. Webster, who will compete in his fourth fight in 2014, is coming off a six-round, unanimous-decision win over Michael Gbenga on May 30. Sai currently resides in Washington, D.C., and is a former Commonwealth British Empire light middleweight champion with a seven-fight win streak.

In the co-main event, Philadelphia super bantamweight Antonio Dubose (6-0, 2 KOs) takes on Arturo Santiago (7-9-1, 4 KOs) of Puerto Rico.

Presented by Joe Hand Promotions and D and D Management Team, Parx Casino Tuesday Night Fights showcases both amateur and professional fighters representing various boxing gyms throughout the Philadelphia area.
The November 25 card will feature five professional fights, including the return of fan favorite Avery Sparrow (2-0, 1 KO), who delivered a devastating knockout in his last performance at 2300 Arena. Sparrow takes on Jesus Lule (6-9, 1 KO) of Fort Myers, Fla., in a four-round featherweight bout.

Also, two four-round welterweight pro bouts will feature Jerome Conquest (1-0) and Blair Cobbs (3-0, 3 KOs), both from Philadelphia. Conquest will face Piotr Apostle (1-0) of Atlantic City, N.J., while Cobbs squares off against Julio Sanchez (1-0) of Houston, Tx.
Seven national champions from across the country, including National Golden Gloves champ Christian Carto of Deptford, NJ, will be featured on the amateur card. Carto, who has his sights set on the 2016 Olympics, faces a very tough 114-pound challenger in Jordan White, an eight-time national champion from Landover, Md.
