Casal & Serrano making Boxing 360 debuts Friday night in upstate NY

 

NEW YORK (April 20, 2011) – Light welterweight Nick “Hands of Gold” Casal and unbeaten lightweight Amanda “The Real Deal” Serrano make their Boxing 360 debuts Friday night in Hamburg, New York.

 

“We’re looking forward to watching them in action under the Boxing 360 banner,” Boxing 360 CEO & Founder Mario Yagobi said.”We want to thank promoter Juan Santiago (Don Juan Fighting Promotions) for putting our fighters on his card. Nick is fighting close to his home in Buffalo and everybody’s anxious to see him back in the ring after a long absence. It wasn’t easy finding a suitable opponent for Nick because he’s so talented. Nick had some personal issues in the past but he’s fully focused now on his boxing career. He’s only 25 years old but experienced having had 26 pro fights.

 

“I wasn’t sure about getting involved in female boxing until I saw Amanda’s last fight live from ringside. She’s unbelievably impressive in and out of the ring. All Amanda does is train to fight, everyday to the point of exhaustion, then she goes home to sleep, and starts all over again the next day at the gym. Amanda is a world champion in the making and this fight will help position her for that opportunity.”

 

Casal (29-4-1, 15 KOs), who was a highly decorated U.S. amateur, returns to the ring for the first time since November 6, 2009, when he won an eight-round decision against Christopher Fernandez. His opponent Friday night in a six-round bout is veteran Martin Tucker (7-8, 3 KOs), who was the third different fighter to accepted the fight against the gifted Casal. Tucker has been somewhat of a gatekeeper for the 147-pound division having fought top prospects such as undefeated Sharif Bogere (19-0, 2 KOs) and Ivan Popoca (15-0-1, 10 KOs), and he also upset previously unbeaten Michael Torres (13-0).
