‘Broadway Boxing’ Returns Live on FIGHT NOW TV April 4 featuring Yuri Foreman, Luis Del Valle, Ionut Dan Ion & Gabriel Bracero


HOBOKEN, N.J. (March 25, 2013) – DiBella Entertainment’s popular “Broadway Boxing” series returns live on FIGHT NOW TV – America’s only 24-hour combat sports and entertainment channel – April 4, starting at 9 p.m. ET, from the historic Roseland Ballroom in midtown Manhattan.

Former World Boxing Association (WBA) junior middleweight champion Yuri Foreman (29-2, 8 KOs) returns to action against Gundrick King (18-9, 11 KOs) in a six-round bout. Foreman won the WBA title in 2009, taking the belt from Daniel Santos, by way of a 12-round decision.

“We’re excited to be airing another ‘Broadway Boxing’ show live because DiBella Entertainment events always showcase entertaining boxers in compelling matches,” said FIGHT NOW TV Co-Founder & General Manager Mike Garrow. “Our viewers have given us positive feedback from all of the ‘Broadway Boxing’ shows that we aired last year.”

Also fighting on the broadcast in eight-round bouts are Puerto Rican featherweight Luis “Orlandito” Del Valle (16-1, 11 KOs), Romanian welterweight Ionut “Jo Jo” Dan Ion (30-2, 17 KOs), and Brooklyn junior welterweight Gabriel “Tito” Bracero (21-1, 4 KOs).

The 26-year-old Del Valle is going out to rebound from his first loss as a pro, suffered last year to multiple world champion Vic Darchinyan, on HBO. Del Valle, who is now being trained by Hall-of-Famer Nacho Beristain, faces Andre Wilson (13-5, 11 KOs).

Ion, rated No. 6 by the World Boxing Council (WBC), now lives and trains in Montreal. The rugged veteran takes on upset-minded Cuban-born Damian “Devo” Farias (19-6-1, 10 KOs), fighting out of Miami, who defeated 21-1-1 Henry Crawford in 2011. Ion has never been stopped and his only two career losses were both to Selcuk Aydin in WBC Silver title fights.

Bracero, a former North American Boxing Federation (NABF) champion, is back on track with three consecutive victories since he suffered his only loss as a professional to former world champion DeMarcus Corley in 2011. Bracero faces battle-tested Mexican-invader Pavel Miranda (19-9-1, 10 KOs).

Some of the other fights on the April 4 “Broadway Boxing” card, or highlights, may also be televised on FIGHT NOW TV, pending time availability.
