Ronald Cruz vs. Doel Carrasquillo

Fri Jul 1 7:30PM ET

Cruz, who has built his reputation mostly in Philadelphia and Atlantic City but now, gets to display his talents

in his hometown as he has compiled an unblemished mark of 12-0 with nine wins coming via stoppage.


Among those wins was a (til this point) career defining six round beat down of highly touted prospect Jeremy

Bryan on October 30, 2010 in a bout that was seen live all over the world on www.gfl.tv.


Cruz has stopped his last five opponents including his bout when he became the first man to stop twenty

fight veteran Manuel Guzman in round three of their scheduled eight round bout.


Carrasquillo has a record of 15-17-1 with thirteen knockouts but that doesn't tell the story as he has fought

anybody and everybody.


The litany of fighters that he has fought is long and Carrasquillo has pulled off many upsets that has caught

more than one eye of the boxing world. Just ask the mega-prospect, Dennis Douglin.


On February 18th, Douglin took on Carrasquillo in what looked on paper to be an easy win for Douglin. One

problem, Carrasquillo didn't get the memo as he shocked the fighter known as the "Da Mama's Boy" and

scored the third round stoppage which shocked many boxing insiders. Like Cruz, Douglin entered the ring

with a 12-0 record.


Douglin isn't the only one to feel the power of Carrasquillo as he has scored upsets over Kenny Abril (5-2-1);

Isam Khalik (13-0-2); Tony Caldwell (9-2-3); Darren Fallen (10-3-1); Aaron Torres (14-5); Wayland Willingham

(13-0) and Jorge Melendez (13-1).


"When you look at the records it looks like a typical cross roads fight", said Marc Abrams, who will be

calling the action ringside on www.gfl.tv.


"The only problem with calling this a cross roads fight is that Carrasquillo is still driving on the same side of

the street with these major prospects. Besides all those upsets, even his losses have been to the top guys

and he has given those guys hell. We did the fight with (former world title challenger) Mike Arnaoutis and he

beat him to the point where Mike's face looked he had been in a war. All I need to say is this, this is the

most dangerous fight of Cruz' career. If he gets by this test, he will be sneaking up with the likes as Mike

Jones as promoter Russell Peltz next big star" A full seven bout undercard will be shown as undefeated

Middleweight Rashad Brown looks to make it 5-0 when he takes on rugged Omar Sims in Brown's first six

round bout.


Undefeated Ronald Cruz faces rugged intrastate rival Doel Carrasquillo for bragging rights as part of a seven

fight card on Friday, July 1, at the Sands Casino Resort in Bethlehem PA. Bouts start at 7:30PM EDT.

Punchin' at the Paradise 12

Thu Jul 7 7:00PM ET


Click here to watch this event on GoFightLive!

On Thursday, July 7th, Star Boxing returns to the Paradise Theater in the Bronx, with the latest installment

of its "Punchin at the Paradise" fight series. The upcoming show on July 7th, will feature popular Yonkers

middleweight/policeman/all-around good guy, Bryant Pappas (12-0, 12KO's) and exciting Bronx super

featherweight prospect Danny Valle (4-0, 3KO's). The entire show will be broadcast live on GFL.TV


Pappas, a Yonkers Housing Police Sergeant., is a 12-year veteran on the Yonkers Police force. Pappas,

who turned pro in 2005, not only fights because he loves the sport, but also for a special cause. Each fight,

Pappas donates his entire purse, including his ticket commission to the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer

Center in NYC. Fighting in Bronx, Pappas will certainly have large contingent of fans and supporters on

hand as he looks to keep his undefeated record and knockout streak alive when he takes on Colorado's

Allen Medina in a six round middleweight match-up.


Valle, a NY Golden Gloves Champion as an amateur, was born into the sport of boxing. His grandfather was

world renowned boxing trainer, Victor Valle Sr., and his father Victor Valle Jr. has trained some of New

York's most notable fighters, including former WBC heavyweight champion Oleg Maskaev.


The 25-year-old Bronx native Valle turned pro in October of 2009, scoring a 2nd round knockout. In his last

bout in March, Valle won a four round unanimous decision on Star Boxing's "March Mayhem" card. Valle is

scheduled to meet former amateur rival, and fellow NY Golden Gloves Champion, Angel Torres, in a six

round super featherweight showdown. There is bad blood between Valle and Torres that stems from their

amateur days. They have talked about fighting one another for years, and now they will finally get a chance

to settle the score once and for all on July 7th.


In addition to Pappas's and Valle's bouts, the card will also feature two separate exciting professional

boxing matches for Bronx bragging rights, as well as four amateur bouts to start the show. The amateur

bouts will feature a number of very exciting prospects out of the New York City area.
