Yathomas Riley on Florida undercard

Press Release: Star Boxing's light heavyweight Yathomas Riley (4-0 with 3 KOs) will return home to Florida when he fights on the undercard at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Hollywood, Florida, on January 14th against Evjeny Stardoubstev (pro debut).

Riley debuted in 2007 stopping Borngood Washington on February 15th at the Mohegan Sun in Uncasville, CT. Riley's upcoming bout on the 14th will mark the first time Riley, the former 2006 National PAL and 2006 National Golden Gloves champion, fights in his home state of Florida since entering the professional ranks. Riley four fights as a pro, in order, took place in Connecticut, Brooklyn, Atlantic City and North Carolina.

"I have fans from coast to coast," stated Riley. "I did most of my training up in New York in 2008, so it was good to be able to showcase my skills in the Northeast. But I am really excited to be fighting in Florida on the 14th in front of all my fans and family who have been there supporting me since day one."

Riley is gearing up for an active 2009. "I'd fight every week if I could. I love fighting, it's my life. I had a great first year with my promoter Joe DeGuardia and Star Boxing, and I only see 2009 being that much better. Everything is going great right now with my training and my team. I am going to be making a lot of noise in 2009 that's a promise."

The bout is being promoted by Warriors Boxing in association with Joe DeGuardia's Star Boxing.
