GUNDRICK KING TO FACE YURI FOREMAN ON BROADWAY BOXING
Press Release: DiBella Entertainment's Broadway Boxing series returns Thursday, April 4th, at Roseland Ballroom in New York City. In the second bout of his comeback, Foreman will square off against Gundrick King (18-9, 11 KOs) in a six-round junior middleweight matchup. Tickets can be purchased through Ticketmaster by calling (800) 745-3000.
After a two-year hiatus from the ring, ex-WBA 154-pound titlist Yuri Foreman signed a promotional contract with DBE earlier this year and quickly returned to action, winning a six-round shutout decision over Brendan Baue on the DBE-promoted card on January 23rd.
The remainder of the 11-bout card will feature Luis "Orlandito" Del Valle (16-1, 11 KOs), welterweight Ionut "Jo Jo" Dan Ion (30-2, 17 KOs) and Gabriel "Tito" Bracero (21-1, 4 KOs) in separate bouts.
Looking to put himself back into the win column after suffering his first pro defeat, a decision loss to ex-multi division champion Vic Darchinyan, the 26-year-old Del Valle will see action against Andre Wilson (13-5, 11 KOs) in an eight-round featherweight contest. Del Valle is now training with Hall-of-Fame trainer Nacho Beristain.
Ion will be fighting for the second time under the DBE banner. The light welterweight Ion, a native of Romania, now living and training in Montreal, Canada, will square off against Damian Frias (19-6-1, 10 KOs) in an eight-round welterweight showdown.
Making his fourth straight appearance at Roseland Ballroom will be Brooklyn's own junior welterweight contender Gabriel "Tito" Bracero (21-1, 4 KOs). After dropping a decision in an absolute war to former world champion DeMarcus "Chop Chop" Corley on January 21, 2012, Bracero has reeled off three consecutive victories as he looks to reposition himself for a significant fight in the junior welterweight division. Bracero will see action in an eight-round bout against Pavel Miranda (19-9-1, 10 KOs).
