Vinny Maddalone & Mike Arnaoutis featured at VIP Boxing III on May 2nd


Joe DeGuardia’s Star Boxing returns to Russo’s On The Bay in Howard Beach, New York on Wednesday, May 2nd with VIP BOXING III, a stellar professional boxing card headlined by popular heavyweight fighter Vinny Maddalone.

“We’re very excited to bring a terrific night of professional boxing once again to the beautiful Russo’s On The Bay venue. This is our third VIP BOXING event and just like the last two it will be a wonderful evening of food and cocktails along with action packed fights,” said DeGuardia.

In the ten round main event, fan favorite Maddalone, 34-7-0 (25KO’s) of nearby Flushing, Queens, will clash with Youngstown, Ohio’s Chris Koval, 25-8-0 (18KO’s).

In his last start on October 22nd, Maddalone demonstrated the power he’s been known over his thirteen years as a professional with a devastating first round knockout of Mike Sheppard at the Tropicana Hotel and Casino in Atlantic City, New Jersey.

“It’s great to have Vinny back in the ring, he’s been a very popular fighter for many years in the New York/New Jersey area. Along with his showdown against Chris Koval we’re putting together a terrific undercard for this event.”

The co-main event at VIP BOXING III will be an eight round junior welterweight clash between former world title challenger “Mighty Mike” Arnaoutis and Albany, New York’s Broderick Antoine.

A native of Athens, Greece, now living in Astoria, Queens, the southpaw Arnaoutis carries a record of 23-7-2 (10KO’s) amassed over his eleven year career, most recently shutting out Shakha Moore over six rounds on February 10th at the Mohegan Sun Casino.
