Danny McDermott Returns to North Bergen 3/25 in First Title Fight

Jersey City, NJ (March 4, 2010) - Lightweight prospect Danny "Little Mac" McDermott will look to add the NABC title to his trophy case when he returns to action on Thursday, March 25 at Schuetzen Park in North Bergen, NJ. The fight will be McDermott's first eight-round assignment, headlining Pound for Pound Promotions' "March Badness" card. McDermott's opponent will be announced shortly.

"It's an honor to fight for my first professional championship in front of my hometown fans," said McDermott, 8-1 (3 KO) at the Irish eatery The Quays in Hoboken. "Ever since I was a kid I dreamed of being called 'champion'. This is just a start but I can't look past the task in front of me. 2010 is going to be my breakout year."

The Jersey City, NJ native McDermott will make his first ring appearance since knocking out Floriano Pagliara in two rounds last May. Pagliara has since beaten undefeated prospect Antonio Espinosa and went the distance with 13-0 fighter Diego Magdaleno. McDermott's amateur career consisted of 50+ bouts but most of his experience came from sparring with champions Arturo Gatti, Bones Adams and Paul Malignaggi, among others.

"Pound for Pound is glad to be back in Schuetzen Park and proud to have Danny McDermott as a headliner," says promoter John Lynch. "Danny is always an exciting fighter and we expect him to thrill the crowd as usual."

Schuetzen Park, which is gaining a reputation as New Jersey's most popular venue for club shows, is often called "The House that McDermott Built", due in large part to McDermott's five exhilirating wars in the ballroom. The North American Boxing Council belt has been worn by former great Felix Trinidad, as well as Joshua Clottey and Stevie Johnston.

The card will also feature fellow Jersey City native Patrick Farrell, as well as Victor Valenzuela, Steven Martinez, Eilon Kedem, Chris Green and Abe Torres.

Tickets, priced $100, $50 and $35, can be purchased by calling (561) 503-9948. Schuetzen Park is located at 3167 John F. Kennedy Boulevard in North Bergen, NJ.
