Jersey City’s very own unbeaten Heavyweight Tyrell Wright seeks to add another win to his record, when he goes head to head with Washington DC’s Alando Pugh in a four rounder.
Asbury’s unbeaten Hakim ‘Braveheart’ Bryant will be looking to make it three out of three when he takes on Puerto Rico’s Jesus Sosa Pagan in a four round Middleweight contest.
Another of Jersey City’s finest, Jose ‘Prime Time’ Ortiz, will be seeking to build on his unbeaten run of three, when he locks horns with Middletown’s big punching Tyrone Luckey.
Union City’s outstanding welterweight prospect Juan ‘The Beast’ Rodriguez Jr. will also be inaction, against a yet to be announced opponent.
In addition the FISTS OF THE FIGHTING IRISH event hosts the highly anticipated pro debut of amateur standout Darren Goodall, who faces fellow debutant Portland Pringle.
Brayon Rendon will also making his debut on Saturday, against Frank Jordan.
On announcing the World Boxing Union Youth World Championship bout, WBU President Don Lewis said.
“It’s St Patrick’s night so what could be better than having an Irish lad battling it out for a WBU World title.
I expect there will be a lot of Irish fans there to support young Stevie on Saturday night, and if he wins, it could be a very long night of celebration by Stevie and the Irish fans.
He’s going to have to work for it though as Stephon McIntyre is also a battler.
It’s going to be a great night of boxing, the fans are going to love every minute of it and for the WBU, well we’ll have cause to celebrate too as we’ll have a new champion crowned.”
