Star Boxing has announced the main event for “Rockin Fights 27”, Friday, July 28th, at The Paramount in Huntington, NY. Fast-rising junior welterweight prospect and New York State champion Anthony “Showtime” Karperis, 14-2, 5 KOs, NY will take on former NY Golden Glove champion Louis Cruz, 11-3, 5 KOs, in a 10 round match up. The card was pushed back from June 15th when that card’s headliner Cletus “The Hebrew Hammer” Seldin failed a drug test.
“This is what New York boxing used to be like and is supposed to be like,” said promoter Joe DeGuardia. “Two young kids, one from Long Island, one from the Bronx, putting it on the line to try and further their careers. This is a good match-up and I expect another sellout at the Paramount– so get your tickets early.”
