Broadway Boxing Perez vs. Gato Figueroa sold out for Wednesday night

On January 21st, DiBella Entertainment (DBE) kicked off the 2012 season of the “Broadway Boxing” series with a thrilling sold-out event at Roseland Ballroom in New York City.  Now, less than two months later, the series returns to midtown Manhattan, this time at BB King Blues Club and Grill.  While the venue might have changed, the results are the same: a complete sellout.

“Boxing must be rebuilt on the grassroots level, in local communities with local fighters and matchups of interest. I’m proud to announce our second consecutive sellout of our Broadway Boxing series this year,” said Lou DiBella.

The card at Roseland featured spectacular knockouts, upsets, fan-friendly wars, and was highlighted by an intriguing crossroads matchup in the main event between an undefeated up-and-coming contender and a former world champion.  It had everything you could ask for in a boxing event.

On paper, the upcoming show this Wednesday is shaping up to be the same with another highly anticipated battle in the main event highlighting what promises to be an action-packed undercard.  For that much, kudos must go to DBE’s matchmaker Joe Quiambao.

Quiambao is a young pup in the game when it comes to matchmaking, having only put together his first card in February 2005.  As a former Golden Gloves champion, Quiambao has an eye for the sport and continuously puts together exciting and compelling cards for DBE.  Doors open at 6:30PM with the first bout scheduled for 7PM. Below is the complete bout sheet for Wednesday night’s show.
