NEW YORK – “The Boxing 360 Series,” presented by Bob Duffy’s Ring Promotions and sponsored by Boxing 360, will include three New York City-based shows in 2010, starting September 24 at Plattduetsche Park Restaurant in Franklin Square. Other series dates are tentatively set for November 4 and December 10.
“We want to keep the fighters in our stable busy and take the company to the next level,” Boxing 360 Director of Boxing Bob Duffy explained. “We’re committed to fighters we’ve signed and are looking to sign more talent. There are a lot of talented boxers in New York City but not enough shows. Not all of the fighters on our shows will be with Boxing 360. We’re open to working with other promoters to keep fighters fighting.”
The inaugural series show will be headlined by undefeated Boxing 360 super middleweight Lennox “2 Sharpe” Allen (12-0-1, 7 KOs), the Guyanese champion now living in Brooklyn. Allen will be fighting Nick Brinson (7-0-1, 5 KOs), of Geneva (NY), in the 8-round main event for the vacant New York State title.
Unbeaten N.Y. State Light Heavyweight Champion Ronson Frank (15-0, 7 KOs), fighting out of Rosedale (NY) by way of Guyana, takes on Tony Ferrante (9-1, 4 KOs), of N. Philadelphia, in the 8-round co-feature. Ronson is the younger brother of former world NBA super middleweight champion, Steven Frank, and former world title challenger, Raul Frank.
“Ronson is a perfect example of what we’re trying to do with other promoters,” Duffy noted. “He is promoted by O’Shea Brothers Promotions and Brian O’Shea is a good friend. We’re very happy that he has placed Ronson on this card and we hope to partner with other promoters for our series.”
Also scheduled to fight on the card is unbeaten Harlem light middleweight — by way of Burkina Faso — Issouf Kinda (8-0, 5 KOs) vs. TBA in an 6/8-round bout; popular Plainview (NY) welterweight Tommy “The Razor” Rainone (13-4, 4 KOs) vs. TBA in a 6/8-round match; Providence cruiserweight Joshua Harris (6-3-1, 5 KOs) vs. Kamareh Pasley (5-4, 2 KOs) in a 6-rounder; former New York Golden Gloves and Empire State amateur champion, undefeated Brooklyn featherweight Amanda “The Real Deal” Serrano (6-0-1, 3 KOs) vs. former Dominican Republic super flyweight titlist Liliana Martinez (8-11-2, 4 KOs) in another 6-round fight. Georgia junior welterweight Arthur Bridges (1-0, 1 KO) will be in action against an opponent to be determined in a 4-round bout. All fights and fighters are subject to change.
