The Darwishes return to NJ in 2009

PRESS RELEASE: The Darwish Brothers' Knockout Promotions have announced a seven-fight boxing card scheduled for January 22, 2009. Entitled "Knockout Night at the Meadowlands", this will be the first ever boxing action to take place in the Meadowlands Sheraton Hotel, located directly across from Giants Stadium in New Jersey. 

The Meadowlands Complex is in the process of a massive facelift with the construction of the new Giants Stadium and the Xanadu complex. With North Jersey evolving into an entertainment and sports epicenter, the scene is ripe to provide the area with compelling boxing excitement.

"With the new president coming into office and boxing being at it's most popular level in decades, the time is right to place boxing alongside the other major sports in the Meadowlands" said Wally Darwish, who promotes alongside brother Hani. "We want to give local fans the opportunity to see the best fighters in the state live. Our goal is to not just have a boxing show, but a boxing event. With the people feeling down about the economy, we want to provide them with a night of entertainment to relieve their stress. The way to do that is by giving the fans more bang for their buck."

The Sheraton Hotel is located at 2 Meadowlands Plaza in East Rutherford, New Jersey. Tickets and bout information will be announced shortly.
