Pagliara Continues American Dream June 14 in NYC
NEW YORK (May 23, 2012)-On Thursday night June 14th at the Roseland Ballroom in New York City, Floriano "L’Italiano" Pagliara will return to the squared circle when he takes part on the Lou DiBella’s Popular Broadway Boxing Television Series.
Pagliara who has a record of 12-4-1 with seven knockouts will be continuing on his quest to live the American dream as the import from Cecine, Italy will be making his second New York City appearance over the past three months.
For this bout, the popular IBF Mediterranean Super Featherweight Champion has set up training in the Aqua Villiage Water Park in his hometown of Cecine Italy near the Livornese coast.
Pagliara has become a major draw in the New York area as he quickly made an impression on the many Italian fans in the “Little Italy” sections of the city including the Williamsburgh Brooklyn neighborhood and on Arthur Avenue in the Bronx.
L”Italiano as he is referred to in America could have stayed in Italy and been very successful as he is a very popular attraction in the Tuscan resort coastal town where he routinely draws 3,000 plus fans for his bouts.
Another reason for Floriano's popularity is that he gets involved in community issues. He is a member of the Ring 8 NY Veteran Boxers Association which provides help to retired boxers. Floriano is hoping to become the official liaison to the retired Italian American fighters in the New York area. "Floriano cares as much as he works" said Tommy Gallagher, the veteran boxing trainer from New York who also is one of the directors on the board for Ring8 NY.
Additionally Pagliara has recently become involved with the Cooley's Anemia Foundation. Cooley's Anemia is a blood disorder that mostly affects children with Mediterranean heritage. Children afflicted with Cooley's Anemia or Thalassemia are not expected to live much past their teen years. The mission of the Cooley's Anemia Foundation is to help in advancing the treatment and cure for this fatal blood disease. Floriano, with the help of local businessman and organization member Paul Tucci is hoping to become more involved with the Long Island Fund Raising Chapter. (www.thalassemia.com)
“The DiBella goup has seen the potential and the fan base that Floriano brings and as he continues to appear on Broadway Boxing, there are discussions for Floriano's fights to be syndicated back in Italy.”
Tickets are priced at $125, $85, $65 and $45, with a limited number of VIP tables available for purchase as well. VIP Tickets are priced at $150, and there are four seats to a table. Tickets can be purchased by calling RKO Boxing at 908-240-2097 or DiBella Entertainment at 212-947-2577. Call soon as tickets are already going fast and a third consecutive sellout for the Broadway Boxing series is expected.
