Perrella spending time with Boys & Girls Club of Sante Fe members


Santa Fe, NM (September 24, 2016) – Bryant “Goodfella” Perrella took time out of his intense training schedule to meet with members of the Boys & Girls Club of Santa Fe Friday afternoon.

Perrella entertained a group of children at Holmes Boxing Club as part of a program with local Boys & Girls Club members. The Fort Myers, FL native is big on giving back to the community and recently started a program in his hometown called “Goodfella’s Great Students” where he rewards top academic performers. Shortly after arriving in New Mexico to finish preparations for his fight with Yordenis Ugas, Perrella was told of the Boys & Girls Club initiative and happily volunteered.

“I’ve only been in New Mexico a short time and the people here already make me feel like I’m the local fighter,” said Perrella, who risks his 14-0 record against Ugas Tuesday, September 27 on Fox Sports 1 at the Buffalo Thunder Casino in Pojoaque, NM. Spending time with children in the community was the least I could do. The kids were very excited to meet me and they brought smiles to my face just as I did to theirs. I’d like to thank Holmes Boxing and the Boys & Girls Club of Santa Fe for the opportunity. I look forward to entertaining local fight fans Tuesday evening and spending time with the children again in the future.”

Lippe

Miami, OK (September 22, 2016) – As the son of popular former heavyweight champion Tommy Morrison, Trey Lippe-Morrison’s name alone generates attention.

A quick glance at the Oklahoman’s record shows that all 11 of his victories came by knockout, 10 inside of two rounds. Those who dug deeper into Lippe-Morrison’s career will see that he’s trained by legendary Freddie Roach at Wildcard Boxing Club in Los Angeles, CA. On the contrary, his critics note that his name alone generated the buzz rather than his knockouts and many second generation boxers didn’t meet expectations.

On Friday evening at the Buffalo Run Casino, Lippe-Morrison looks to make his TV debut a successful one when he battles fellow unbeaten Ed “Black Magic” Latimore. The bout opens a quadrupleheader on Shobox: The New Generation and is scheduled for 6 rounds. Latimore, 13-0 (7 KO’s), owns amateur wins over former heavyweight champion Charles Martin and 2012 US Olympian Dominic Breazeale. The Pittsburgh, PA native will be Lippe-Morrison’s toughest test to date and he believes the heavy interest in this fight will only elevate his career when he emerges victorious.

“This is a difficult fight for Trey,” said Tony Holden, Lippe-Morrison’s promoter. “Latimore is undefeated and had a
good amateur background. He and his team believe this fight will opens doors for him. The interest in this fight is extremely high not just because of whom Trey is but also since there are two unbeaten American heavyweight squaring off early in their careers. The winner is definitely worthy of being considered a top up and coming heavyweight.”

Lippe-Morrison is a member of Holden Productions’ “Four State Franchise” and fought 9 of his 11 fights at the Buffalo Run Casino, a venue he’s helped sell out multiple times. With the hometown advantage and flawless start to his pro career, Lippe-Morrison knows there will be pressure on him but believes he’s ready to handle it.

“There is a little bit of added pressure,” the 26-year-old said of fighting on TV. “There are of course the people that want to see me on the same level at my father but some of it is brought on by me. My team and I believe I’m ready for this. I’ve been getting a lot better and learning every day under Freddie Roach. Freddie says I’m prepared for the step up and he has full confidence in me. Now I’ve got to go out and perform.”

The quadrupleheader airs live on Showtime at 10 PM ET and also features Ivan “The Volk” Golub against James “Keep em’ Sleepin” Stevenson, Ivan “The Beast” Branchyk vs Zhimin Wang and Radivoje “Hot Rod” Kalajdzic taking on “Notorious” Travis Peterkin.

Tickets are sold out and this excellent evening of boxing is promoted by DiBella Entertainment and Holden Productions in association with Fight Promotions Inc. and Roc Nation Sports.

Baranchyk, who quickly became a crowd favorite at the Buffalo Run Casino, looks to improve his record to 12-0 when he faces Zhimin Wang on ShoBox

Baranchyk, who quickly became a crowd favorite at the Buffalo Run Casino, looks to improve his record to 12-0 when he faces Zhimin Wang on ShoBox

Miami, OK (September 19, 2016) – When junior welterweight buzzsaw Ivan “The Beast” Baranchyk first fought at the Buffalo Run Casino in March, he was not known by locals. Many of the fans packed the venue primarily to support “Four State Franchise” members Kenzie Morrison, Jesse Cook and Dillon Cook. Things however quickly changed.

On that evening, Baranchyk destroyed fellow unbeaten Nicholas Givhan in 21 seconds with a crushing left hook. Exactly three months later, Baranchyk returned to the Buffalo Run Casino and had the fans watching him closely. The explosive 23-year-old delivered again, stopping another unbeaten fighter Eliseo Cruz Sesma in less than three rounds. A fighter previously unknown to locals quickly became in demand.

“The fans here fell in love with Ivan,” said Promoter Tony Holden, who has promoted fights for more than 25 years. “He’s got a great style that can win over a crowd that may not have known much about him and that’s exactly what he did in his last two fights.”

In August, Holden signed Baranchyk to a co-promotional agreement, working in association with DiBella Entertainment and Fight Promotions Inc.

Now a member of the “Four State Franchise,” Baranchyk looks to run his record to 12-0 with 11 knockouts when he meets 7-0 Zhimin Wang of China in a ten round contest for the USBA junior welterweight title Friday evening at the Buffalo Run Casino. The Branchyk-Wang bout takes places on a ShoBox quadrupleheader featuring three other exciting matchups between fighters with a combined record of 96-3-1. The card airs live on Showtime at 10 pm ET and tickets to the fight are sold out.

With a win, Baranchyk will likely be ranked in the top 15 and move onto bigger fights. However, the Brooklyn, NY based Russian is solely focused on entertaining his newfound supporters.

Baranchyk said of his upcoming bout, “I’m excited beyond belief to once again fight on Shobox and in my new hometown of Miami, OK. This time (my opponent) is much more serious but I am prepared to fight anyone. I am going to show a high level of boxing and god willing the fight will end early in a knockout.”

Perrella plans to earn his 14th knockout September 27 when he faces Yordenis Ugas on Fox Sports 1


Fort Myers, FL (September 13, 2016) – Bryant “Goodfella” Perrella will look to take another step up the welterweight ladder when he faces contender Yordenis Ugas Tuesday, September 27 at the Buffalo Thunder Resort & Casino in Santa Fe, NM.

The bout is scheduled for ten rounds and is the main event of Premier Boxing Champions’ “Toe to Toe Tuesday” series on Fox Sports 1.

Ugas, who captured a bronze medal at the 2008 Olympics for his native Cuba, is 16-3 with 7 wins by knockout as a professional. On August 12, Ugas soundly defeated previously unbeaten Jamal James over ten rounds. The well-schooled Cuban has never been stopped and two of his defeats came via split decision.

To prepare for the challenge, Perrella’s been training with world class fighters from all over the world. The Fort Myers native has put in additional time in all aspects of his training from bag work to cardio, strength training and sparring. By pushing himself to the limits in his training camp, Perrella’s confident the hard work will help him accomplish exactly what he’s looking for on fight night.

“First and foremost I owe a special thanks to my great sponsor Dioxyme for helping make this training camp a great success so far,” said the 27-year-old, who is 14-0 with 13 wins via KO. “I’ve said all along that I’m planning to knock him out. He’s never faced anybody with power like mine or a welterweight of my stature that can box, bang and throw the right punches at the right time. He’s in for a real surprise on the 27th because I’m going to end his night early and show everybody in the welterweight division that I’m a force to be reckoned with!”

Del Valle, 22-2 (16 KO’s), arrived with his team Monday afternoon for Saturday evening’s HBO PPV showdown with Diego De La Hoya


Dallas, TX (September 12, 2016) – IBF #8 super bantamweight Luis “Orlandito” Del Valle and his team arrived in Dallas this afternoon after leaving Puerto Rico earlier today.

Del Valle, who hails from Bayamon, meets unbeaten Diego De La Hoya, 15-0 (9 KO’s), Saturday evening over ten rounds in what is expected to be a classic Puerto Rico vs Mexico slugfest. The bout opens an HBO PPV telecast starting at 9 PM ET headlined by the junior middleweight championship fight between pound for pound superstar Saul “Canelo” Alvarez and reigning WBO champion Liam Smith. The card takes place a short distance from Dallas in Arlington, TX at AT&T Stadium, best known as the home of the Dallas Cowboys.

Del Valle, 22-2 (16 KO’s), had grueling training camp to prepare for what he calls the biggest fight of his career. With his preparation in the books, Del Valle is supremely confident that the work he put in along with his significant experience advantage will guide him to victory.

“The work has been put in by myself and my team,” said Del Valle. “I’m focused and ready to fight. A win can change everything for me. De La Hoya is undefeated and people are discussing him as a future superstar. His team believes I’m the guy he’ll beat to get to the next level and that’s a major mistake. I’ve been down this road before and this was the best camp I ever had. Come Saturday night, everybody will see that Orlandito Del Valle is a serious player in the 122 pound division!”
