Moore-Medina headlines Sept. 7 in Boston
Undefeated Cleveland light middleweight Michael Moore (12-0 (6 KOs) will headline the “Changing The Game” professional boxing card, presented by Big Six Entertainment in association with Danny Kelly Promotions, on Saturday, September 7 (special 5 p.m. ET start) at The Royale Nightclub Boston (formerly The Roxy), located in the downtown theater district.
“We are excited about coming right back to The Royale Boston,” Big Six Entertainment president Artie DePinho said. “The combination of New England fight fans and the venue created an electric atmosphere at our last event. We are putting together another night of can’t-miss entertainment and I encourage everybody to get tickets early.”
The fast-rising Moore, who fights out of the same city that has produced contemporary world-title contenders such as Willie Nelson and Miguel Gonzales, will face face the toughest test of his young professional career, Jose “Stinger” Medina (18-13-1, 7 KOs), in an eight-round bout. Media is considered a gatekeeper whose record is deceiving because so many of his fights have been in his opponent’s backyard, many on short notice.
Medina, fighting out nearby Quincy (MA), is coming of a win by six-round decision over Allen Conyers (12-8) in July. The 30-year-old Mexico-born fighter has upset 17-1 Issac Rodrigues (KO4) and he fought world champion Joachim Alcine to an eight-round draw in 2011, in which most observers felt Medina deserved the decision. Medina, who has only been stopped twice in 32 fights, has been the distance against world-class opponents such Fernando Guerrero, Bronco McKart and Matthew Hatton, as well as prospects Lamar Russ and Nick Brinson.
Popular Irish welterweight Michael McLaughlin (5-1-1, 3 KOs), the Donegal boxer now living in Boston, is slated to be in the six-round co-feature. 2012 National PAL Championship gold-medalist, Lynn welterweight Rashidi “Prince” Ellis (1-0), returns to the scene of his successful professional debut on July 27 to fight in a four-rounder.
Also slated to fight on the undercard in separate four-round matches, against TBAs, include the following Massachusetts fighters: Boston heavyweight Donnie Palmer (0-1-1), Lawrence light welterweight Carlos Canderlario (3-0, 1 KO), Stoneham welterweight Greg Vendetti (3-0-1, 2 KOs), Lynn light heavyweight Fadoul Louis (2-1-1, 1 KO) and Bridgewater heavyweight Julian Pollard (2-0, 2 KOs).
Opponents in all of the scheduled fights, excluding the main event, will be announced after Massachusetts State Athletic Commission approvals.
All fighters are subject to change.
Tickets, reasonably priced at $40.00, $50.00 and $75.00, are available to purchase by calling 1.617.312.5059.
Doors open at 4:00 p.m. ET with the first bout scheduled for 5:00 p.m. ET.
