Chris Algieri Faces Raul Tovar on July 28 in Huntington

BRONX, NY - "The Fighting Pride of Huntington" Chris Algieri returns to battle Saturday, July 28th against tough Texas veteran Raul Tovar in the main event at "ROCKIN FIGHTS 4" at The Paramount in Huntington, New York, it was announced today by Star Boxing's Joe DeGuardia.

 "This will be our fourth event at The Paramount and we're very excited to return with Chris Algieri in the main event. The terrific fans in the Huntington area have been extremely supportive, and all of our shows have sold out." said DeGuardia. "I strongly urge purchasing tickets in advance for this event."

The 28-year-old Algieri, 14-0 with seven knockouts, continues to shine in the junior welterweight division and has amped up his training over the last six months, sparring with numerous world champions and highly ranked contenders in Oxnard, California, under the watchful eye of famed trainer Robert Garcia.

In his first two bouts of 2012, the former kick boxing world champion and pre-med student took an eight round shutout decision win over Curtis Smith on January 28th followed by a third round knockout of Winston Mathis on March 31st, both in front of raucous, sold out crowds at The Paramount.

The 23-year-old Tovar, sporting a record of 10-5-1 (4KO's), is coming off a unanimous decision win over DeShaun Williams on May 19th in Pharr, Texas. Riding a two bout-winning streak, the Mission, Texas native also knocked out Miguel Pizarro in the second round on October 21st of last year, also in Pharr, Texas.

Continued DeGuardia, "Tovar is a tough fighter from Texas, he's already beaten a couple undefeated prospects and this is another big test for Chris."

A full lineup of action packed undercard bouts will be announced shortly.

The Paramount is located at 370 New York Avenue, Huntington, New York, 11743. For directions and more information, please visit their website at www.paramountny.com
