Santana To Shine Wednesday Night!
Edgar “El Chamaco” Santana (22-3, 14 KO’s) is looking to take the next big step in his quest to be a major player in the junior welterweight division. The DBE Spansh Harlem Junior Welterweight will face a tough, veteran test when he goes up against Grover Wiley (30-10, 14 KO’s) Wednesday night at DiBella Entertainment’s Broadway Boxing card at Grand Ballroom at Manhattan Center. “Santana has been diligently training and looking sharp for his return to Broadway Boxing,” said manager Ernesto Dallas.

Santana is looking to rebound and “is on the comeback trail since his disappointing loss in June and is ready to show that one bad night does not derail a career,” said Dallas. “Santana is still an emerging force in the Junior Welterweight division. It is a testament to our faith in Santana that we are going to fight Grover Wiley as a comeback fight. This is the same Grover Wiley who fought Dmitriy Salita and went the distance with him as a main event.”
Team Santana knows exactly who they have their sights set on for the future. “I want to invite all fans to come out to the Manhattan Center on March 5th and see Santana’s performance against Wiley and compare to what Salita looked like against Wiley,” said Dallas. “I also want to extend a personal invitation to Dmitriy and the rest of Team Salita to come out and watch a real fighter at work. There will be ringside seats waiting at the door coutesy of Edgar Santana. Team Santana doesn’t take on bums! Salita was too scared to fight us on HBO last year. Maybe after Santana’s performance with Wiley, Salita will grow a pair and step into the ring with Edgar and try to justify his ridiculous #3 ranking by the WBA!”
The Santana/Wiley matchup will be apart of a great night of fights headlined by the rematch between Gary “Kid” Stark (20-2, 8 KO’s) and Andres Ledesma (14-7-1, 9 KO’s). Also on the card will be DBE Bronx heavyweight Israel “King Kong” Garcia (18-1, 10 KO’s), Puerto Rican native Joel Torres (8-0, 5 KO’s), Brooklyn Junior Middleweights Ariel Espinal (6-2-1, 2 KO’s) and Raymond Biggs Jr. (7-0, 6 KO’s), Queens native Joselito Collado (1-0), and featherweight Tracey Hutt making her pro debut out of Island Park.
