Ring of Fire II!

 
 
 

Featuring what will likely be the last professional fight of junior welterweight veteran Juan Arroyo, Bad Dog Promotions, in association with Seminole Warrior’s Boxing, will present “Ring of Fire II” on Friday, August 24 at the Sheraton Miami Mart, in Miami, Florida.

 

Arroyo (34-5-4, 16 KOs), who is one of South Florida’s most popular boxers, announced that this will be his last bout of his career during the press conference held on Tuesday, August 21.

 

“I think this is going to be my last fight, unless something worth it comes along,” said an emotional Arroyo. “I’m 43 years old and I need to take care of myself.”

 

Arroyo, who was initially announced as the co-main event, will be featured now as the main event against former world title challenger Ilido Julio (35-12-1, 31 KOs) of Colombia. This change came after the scheduled main event between the cruiserweight bout between Sechew “Iron Horse” Powell and James Crayton had to be postponed due to Powell’s health.

 

“When Powell came down from New York, he caught a bad case of the flu,” commented Bad Dog Promotions’ President Robert Dobal. “He couldn’t run for a week and we had to make the decision.” Powell’s fight has been postponed to the next Sheraton Miami Mart’s event on September 21.  

 

Despite the changes, Dobal is excited about Friday night’s card. “I’m glad to be presenting his (Arroyo) last show,” expressed Dobal, who has promoted Arroyo in his last three fights. “It has been an honor and a privilege.”

 

“I’m coming to fight and bring a great show,” said Arroyo, who indicated that he is looking forward to become a full-time trainer after Friday night. “I spent seven months in Washington, D.C. as a trainer and I’m currently working at South Florida Boxing. I love this sport and that is what I want to do now.”

 

“Ring of Fire II,” which is the second of a four card series at the Sheraton Miami Mart, is Dobal’s attempt to reignite the love for club boxing in South Florida. “We are trying to bring club shows back in Miami,” indicated the promoter. “These shows are needed so the young talent can showcase their skills on their way to reach their goal of getting the big fights.”

 

One of those talented young fighters with great potential is Damian “Devo” Frias (13-1, 6 KOs), who will be showcased as the co-main event of the card. Frias will face off against Agustin Velez (7-3, 4 KOs), who is also from Miami, Florida.

 

“I’m glad to be in the show, especially with Arroyo, who I grew up with here in Miami,” commented Frias, who comes off an impressive technical knockout over Derrick Moon (11-14-1, 2 KOs) on July 27. “I’ve been training in the gym, and I’m here to put up a great show.”

 

Another young fighter featured in “Ring of Fire II” is the Cuban heavyweight Henrrys Fuentes (1-0). He will be fighting his second professional bout only five months after putting on boxing gloves for the first time. Fuentes arrived in the United States about six months ago from Cuba, where he was a member of the juvenile greco-roman wrestling national team.

 

“After my first fight, I learned what everyone already knows, this is a tough sport,” expressed Fuentes. “This is something I always wanted to do, become a successful and recognized athlete in combat sport.”

 

Fuentes will face Jimmy Mason (0-1) of Wilson, North Carolina.

 

Other bouts will feature Mohamed Dridi (0-4) of France against Marcus Thomas of Greensboro, North Carolina, who will be making his pro debut in the cruiserweight division; Felix Flores (13-8-1, 11 KOs) of Miami, Florida and Kevin Hudgins (5-10-1, 2 KOs) of Pensacola, Florida, in a featherweight bout; junior welterweights Timmy Leonard (4-1-1, 2 KOs) of Key West, Florida, and Alex Deon (0-1) of Macom, Georgia; and Juan Nazario (3-0, 3 KOs) of Miami, Florida, versus Waldo Rangle (1-3) of Atlanta, Georgia.

No Number One! July 28, 2006 Seminole Hard Rock and Casino
roldan23- 08/04/2006 08:45:55 AM

On July 28, 2006, Warriors Boxing Promotions, Golden Grain Promotions, and Sampson Lewkowicz, in association with the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Hollywood, FL, presented another night of boxing televised on ESPN2’s Friday Night Fights
It was a great Heavyweight clash to determine the number one challenger to face Wladimir Klitschko for the IBF Heavyweight title. Unfortunately, nothing was decided. Undefeated Sultan Ibragimov of Russia came out and set the pace early against Ray Austin, hurting him with a left hook. But Austin survived the round by grabbing and clutching the smaller Russian. Possesing an obvious size advantage, Austin preferred fighting from a distance attempting to keep Sultan from getting inside with his body attack. But late in the fourth, a vicious right hook took down the bigger fighter. Austin seemed wobbled a bit, but beat the count and survived the round. Had that knockdown came earlier in the round, Austin might not have survived. This knockdown seemed to awaken Austin, as he came out fighting hard in the fifth and next middle rounds after that, actually winning all the rounds on my scorecard. In the tenth, both fighter were rocking each other, Sultan hurting Austin early, but Ray returning fire towards the end of the round, knocking the Russian down. Austin seemed to be catching up on the scorecards, thus forcing Ibragimov to win the 12th and final round. Most in the arena disagreed with the judges when the scorecards were announced, with scores of 115-111 Ibragimov, 114-112 Austin, and 113-113. the draw decides nothing as to who will challenge Klitschko for the OBF Title. Ibragimov's record now stands at , while Austin is at .
The ESPN televised card also showcased former Jr. Welterweight champ Randall Bailey, who stopped outclassed Stoner Jones in the fourth round, and improves to 33-5 (30 KO).
Among the faces in the crowd were Angelo Dundee, Vernon Forrest, Shannon Briggs, Gerry Cooney, Jameel McCline, Glen Johnson, as well as three Russian NHL players including Valeri Bure, and Russian pop mega star Vlad Topalov. Noticably missing was Mike Tyson, a big supporter of Ibragimov.

Friday Night Fight Miccosukee Jan 27, 2006
roldan23- 01/29/2006 04:20:12 PM

In the Battle between Cuba and Puerto Rico, Cuba swept 'La Isla Del Encanto'. In 5 seperate fights between A Cuban and Boricua fighter, Cuba swept the cards. A bad night overall for the Island, as Ruben Rivera lost a disputed UD to Ernest Mazyck in a clash of Heavyweights. In the main, Mexican Cecilio 'Boga' Santos stopped Jair 'Tigrillo' Jimenez by 6th round TKO. Santos was much too quick and a barrage of body attacks finally put a game, but outmatched, Jimenez down.
Also, former 2-time Heavyweight title challenger Jameel McCline needed just over 2 minutes to put down Dan Ward.
Former world champion Randall Bailey’s comeback fight against world-rated Antonio Pitalua, 40-3 (34 KOs), was scratched at the last minute after he passed out in his dressing room, reportedly due to a mixture of the flu and making weight. Bailey was taken cared for by paramedics and is apparently in no danger, but for the sake of safety, his co-main event bout was cancelled. The loss of the Bailey fight is the second high-profile fight to be scratched from this All Star Boxing-promoted show, as former linear heavyweight champion Shannon Briggs’ fight against Chris “Special K” Koval was also cancelled after Briggs injured his ankle last week. But that didnt stop the sold out crowd from enjoying a great night at the fights.
Notable faces seen in the crowd were Joel Julio, Gilberto Reyes, Lenin Arroyo, Oscar Leon, Michael Moorer and O.J. Simpson.

* A new Beanie baby will be released on September 1st.

Here I might include detailed directions or a map to an upcoming event.
