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.”

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!”

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!”

Bayamon, Puerto Rico (September 6, 2016) – In less than two weeks, IBF #8 ranked super bantamweight Luis “Orlandito” Del Valle enters the ring against unbeaten and highly regarded Diego De La Hoya.

The bout opens the Saul “Canelo” Alvarez –Liam Smith HBO pay-per-view telecast Saturday, September 17 from AT&T Stadium in Arlington, TX and is scheduled for ten rounds. Del Valle, who fought on HBO and Showtime on multiple occasions, considers this bout the most important of his career as he’s facing a foe that is in a position he himself was once in.

“Going into my fight with Vic Darchinyan, I was unbeaten and there was a lot of hype behind me,” said Del Valle, who is 22-2 with 16 knockouts. “That fight was supposed to get me to the next level with a victory over a former world champion but unfortunately it didn’t go down that way. Vic had a ton of experience and was the better man that night. I learned a lot as a man, fighter and about preparation at the top level. Now I feel that I’m in the role Vic was against me when I face De La Hoya.”

To ensure he excels on the grandest stage of his career, Del Valle’s currently in a grueling training camp in his native Puerto Rico. With head trainer Emilio Lozada leading the way, Del Valle’s put in countless hours honing his craft. Against the 15-0 De La Hoya, in what most expect to be the kind of high octane fight that epitomizes the Puerto Rico vs Mexico rivalry, Del Valle added new strength and conditioning drills so he’s able to engage in a high octane battle without running out of gas.

“It’s no secret that I bring the fight to everybody that gets in the ring with me. Diego and his team are looking to prove that he’s the real deal and they expect an impressive Mexican-style performance from him. What that means is this has all the makings of a fast paced brawl where nobody wants to take a step backwards. In order to come out of the battle as the victor, you’ve got to be ready for war. After what I’ve been through physically, mentally and emotionally in my training, I’m more than ready. All of the hard work will pay off when I break Diego De La Hoya down September 17!”

Tulsa, OK (August 27, 2016) – Heavyweight sensation Trey Lippe-Morrison makes his highly anticipated TV debut when he faces fellow unbeaten Ed Latimore as part of a quadruple header on ShoBox: The New Generation Friday, September 23 at 10 pm ET live from the Buffalo Run Casino in Miami, OK.

Living and fighting out of Tulsa, OK, Lippe-Morrison’s 11-0 with all of his wins coming by knockout. A member of Holden Productions’ Four State Franchise, the 26-year-old power punching phenom has been out of the ring since January after suffering a hand injury. Under the watchful eye of 7-time BWAA Trainer of the Year Freddie Roach, Lippe-Morrison’s working hard daily towards his goal to become the heavyweight champion of the world like his late father Tommy.

Latimore, 13-0 (7 KO’s), is without question the toughest opponent of Lippe-Morrison’s career. Fighting out of the Steel City Pittsburgh, PA, Latimore is fresh off a July 15 victory over Juan Goode. Known by his moniker “Black Magic,” Latimore is a former Pennsylvania Golden Gloves, National PAL and Ringside Champion. He also owns amateur victories over 2012 Olympian Dominic Breazeale and former IBF heavyweight kingpin Charles Martin.

“This is a definite step up for Trey but these are the kinds of opponents we need to be fighting on TV,” said Lippe-Morrison’s promoter Tony Holden. “Trey has improved his boxing ability tremendously under Freddie Roach and has dynamic power. At the same time, Latimore is here to spoil the party and was a very good amateur prior to his current run as an unbeaten professional. The fans at the Buffalo Run, where Trey is a favorite, and everybody watching on Showtime are in for exciting fight between two unbeaten heavyweights on the way up, which is a rarity these days.”

Lippe-Morrison and Latimore meet over six rounds.

Brooklyn-based Russian Ivan “The Beast” Baranchyk, 11-0 (10 KO’s), puts his perfect record on the line against an opponent to be named in a ten round junior welterweight bout.
