SOLID BROADWAY BOXING CARD ANNOUNCED - STRONG NEW ENGLAND FLAVOR. This Thursday night at Foxwoods R



MASHANTUCKET, CT (August 30, 2016) - DiBella Entertainment has announced a solid Broadway Boxing card, showcasing many of New England's most promising prospects, this Thursday night in Fox Theater at Foxwoods Resort Casino in Mashantucket, Connecticut.

"Nice" Nick DeLomba (10-1, 2 KOs), fighting out of Cranston, RI, is one of six New Englanders that will be featured on, ironically, Broadway Boxing. The 26-year-old DeLomba will square off against Groveland, Florida's Amos "2 Smooth" Cowart (11-1-1, 9 KOs) in the eight-round main event.

Belgian super featherweight Dardan Zenunaj (12-1, 9 KOs), a former World Boxing Association (WBA) International champion, faces New Mexico's Jose "Shorty" Salinas (9-2-1, 5 KOs) in an eight-round contest.

Undefeated Brooklyn lightweight Wesley Ferrer, a 2013 New York City Golden Gloves champion, will participate in another eight-round bout.

A pair of newly signed DiBella Entertainment fighters, unbeaten Spanish junior lightweight Jon "Jonfer" Fernandez (8-0, 6 KOs), who is co-promoted by future Hall of Famer Sergio Martinez, and pro-debuting Puerto Rican welterweight Jose Roman, will also be in action. Fernandez is matched against Mexican Naciff "Chata" Castillo (17-8-2, 5 KOs) in an eight-rounder, while Roman turns pro against Philadelphian Khaaliq Core in a four-round match.

East Hartford, CT welterweight "Marvelous" Mykey Williams (3-0, 2 KOs), a three-time Ringside World Tournament champion, returns to his second home at Foxwoods for his fourth pro fight against David Nelson (3-5, 1 KO), of Los Angeles, CA, in a four-round bout.

Connecticut's own Anthony Laureano and Jonathan "Smooth" Figueroa will be making their pro debuts in separate four-round bouts against Philadelphians. The welterweight Laureano, a 2016 N.E. Golden Gloves champion from East Hartford, challenges pro-debuting Nihir Albright, while Hartford junior welterweight Figueroa, a 2012 Southern N.E. Golden Gloves gold medalist, competes against Demetris Williams (0-1).

A pair of Massachusetts featherweights will be fighting in separate four-round bouts. N.E. Golden Gloves winner Timmy Ramos (4-0-1, 4 KOs), of Framingham, will battle Sean Acosta, of Arecibo, Puerto Rico. Worcester's Irvin Gonzalez (1-0, 1 KO) will take on Texan Juan Muniz.

All fights and fighters are subject to change.
