Morganville, NJ  – Denis “Da Momma’s Boy” Douglin will make his national TV debut when he battles undefeated knockout artist Steven Martinez on ESPN2’s “Friday Night Fights” January 6 at Mallory Square in Key West, FL.
 
Both Douglin, 13-1 (8 KO’s), and Martinez, 11-0 (9 KO’s), won the 2008 National Golden Gloves Tournament in their respective weight classes, en route to becoming notable pro prospects. Although Douglin lives in Morganville, NJ and Martinez resides in nearby Bronx, NY, the two only trained together on a very limited basis.
 
“We sparred once earlier this year and that was it,” stated Douglin, who outpointed slick veteran Phillip McCants in July. “We fought in the same tournaments but he competed in a lower weight class. He faced my cousin (Delen Parsley) twice in the amateurs and I’ve seen a number of his pro fights. He’s a good fighter with solid skills.”
 
Last February, Douglin suffered a shocking defeat at the hands of Doel Carrasquillo. The skilled southpaw was written off by many insiders following the loss, but Douglin believes that he’ll turn doubters into believers come January 6.
 
“You’re only as good as your last fight and I learned a lot from the loss. The Martinez fight is a blessing and two young fighters putting everything on the line is something for the fans to be excited about. When I win, people will definitely know that I’m here to stay!”
 
Douglin-Martinez is scheduled for eight rounds in the junior middleweight division and will open the 2012 season of Friday Night Fights. The card is promoted by Dibella Entertainment. Ticket information will be available shortly.
 
The card airs live on ESPN2, ESPN3 and ESPN Deportes at 9 pm ET. Tags: Denis Douglin
