BOXING RETURNS AGAIN TO ATLANTIC CITY



The Tropicana



On Saturday, August 27th, Joe DeGuardia’s Star Boxing returns to the Tropicana Casino and Resort in Atlantic City, with an exciting six bout card, featuring the always exciting heavyweight fan-favorite, Vinny Maddalone (33-7, 24KO’s) and Atlantic City’s own, Shamone “The Truth” Alvarez (21-4, 12KO’s) in separate bouts.


“We are really looking forward to returning to the Tropicana, and putting together another great night of exciting fights,” stated Joe DeGuardia, CEO and President of Star Boxing. “The Tropicana has such a great venue for boxing, and the atmosphere in the Casino, especially during the summer-time is just so electric. When you combine that electricity with the fireworks that Vinny and Shamone are sure to produce, you just know you are in for one exciting night of entertainment.”


Maddalone, a major attraction on the east coast, due to his never say die, warrior-like style, last fought at the Tropicana in March of last year, when he handed out a vicious beating to Dominque Alexander, dropping his opponent multiple times, before eventually scoring a 5th round TKO. Never in a dull fight, Maddalone has fought some of the top names in the Heavyweight division, including former undisputed heavyweight champion, Evander Holyfield and current top ten contenders, Tomasz Adamek, Dennis Boytsov and Jean-Marc Mormeck. Maddalone is scheduled to square off against “Dangerous” Damon Reed (46-16, 32KO’s) in a ten round heavyweight showdown.


The former, WBO NABO welterweight champion Alvarez also was in action at the Tropicana at the Star Boxing promoted show in March of last year. In his fight, Alvarez scored a brutal one-punch knockout over Alexis Camacho. Alvarez is set to meet the always tough and game Chris “Kid Kayo” Fernandez (19-13-1, 12KO’s) in an eight round welterweight match-up. Fernandez has been in with former world champions, Devon Alexander and Paulie Malignaggi.


All the action takes place in the Tropicana Showroom. Doors open at 7 p.m., with preliminaries beginning at 7:30 p.m. and the first bout starting at 8 p.m. Tickets are priced at $30, $50, $100 and $200 and are on sale now through Ticketmaster. Tickets will also be available at the Tropicana Box Office, subject to availability.
