YONKERS, N.Y. (Feb. 19, 2010) – New York State heavyweight champion Darrel “King David” Madison returns March 12 in the main event on the “St. Patty’s Day Brawl” pro boxing card, presented by O’Shea Brothers Boxing Promotions, at the PAL Gym in Yonkers, New York.
Last July, Madison (14-1, 3 KOs) defeated Nagy Aguilera by an 8-round split decision for the New York State heavyweight title. Madison, fighting out of Central Islip (NY), fights an opponent to be determined Mar. 12 in the 8-round headliner, while IBF No. 12 rated Aguilera battles former world champion Samuel Peter the same night in an IBF heavyweight title eliminator in Texas.
“We’re excited to have Darrel Madison, one of the top heavyweight prospects, headlining our next show,” promoter Brian O’Shea explained. “O’Shea Brothers Boxing continues to showcase some of the best local fighters in legitimate fights. We’re old-school and that’s the type fighters we like to showcase.”
Rosedale’s (NY) unbeaten light heavyweight Ronson Frank (13-0, 7 KOs), by way of Guyana, is matched against 33-fight veteran Raynard “Flash” Darden in the 8-round co-feature. Ronson, who recently signed a promotional contract with O’Shea Brothers Boxing Promotions, is the younger brother of former world champions Steve (1984 Olympian) and Raul.
Two special 6-round female featherweight bouts with future title implications are on tap featuring Bronx rivals Maureen “The Real Million Dollar Baby” Shea (13-2, 7 KOs) and Nydia “Da Phnominal” Feliciano (2-0-1, 0 KOs) in separate bouts versus opponents to be determined. At stake in their respective fights is a tentative Shea-Feliciano showdown May 7 for the WBC International featherweight crown, provided both fighters emerge victoriously Mar. 12.
Unbeaten Bronx super middleweight Hajro Sujak (5-0, 2 KOs) fights TBA, while Astoria (NY) light middleweight (by way of Cyprus) Lambros “Lionheart” Karaolides (5-0, 4 KOs) takes on Ashantie “Volcano” Hendrickson (1-5), in a pair of 6-round bouts.
On the undercard in 4-round bouts are Bronx bantamweight Raul Lopez (2-0-1, 2 KOs) meets Jessie Franks (2-6-1, 2 KOs), Manhattan super featherweight Jonathan Cuba (2-1, 2 KO) faces Deroy “Guyanese Gladiator” Beaton (1-1, 0 KOs), and Yonkers featherweight favorite Chazz McDowell (1-0, 1 KO) is scheduled to be in action against an opponent to be determined.
