Hardy, Russ Back on March 21 at Aviator in Brooklyn

New York, NY - DiBella Entertainment's popular Broadway Boxing series returns for back-to-back shows in a three-week span with the first card taking place on Friday, March 21, at Aviator Sports and Events Center in Brooklyn, NY. On Thursday, April 10, the series heads back to NYC's famed B.B. King Blues Club & Grill in midtown Manhattan for another exciting night of boxing.

Both cards will feature exciting and promising talent from DBE's talent laden stable of fighters.  The card on March 21 will showcase undefeated Brooklyn-native and popular female attraction, "The First Lady" of DBE, Heather "The Heat" Hardy (8-0, 2KO's) and middleweight contender Lamar Russ (14-1, 7KO's) in separate eight-round bouts. 

Hardy is coming off of her first scheduled eight-rounder in her most recent bout when she won an absolute war against Christina Fuentes on February 12, at Roseland Ballroom in NYC. Hardy fought four times in 2013, picking up the UBF international female bantamweight title in the process and is looking to be even busier in 2014 as she closes in on her first world title opportunity.

The bout on March 21 will be the first for Russ since suffering his first professional defeat at the hands of three-time world title challenger and top-rated middleweight contender Matthew Macklin.  Shown live on HBO, though Russ took the bout on short notice, he was very competitive throughout. Ultimately, he dropped a 10-round unanimous decision to the much more experienced Macklin.  The 27-year-old Russ proved that even with just 14 professional fights, he is able to compete with some of the top middleweights in the world and is looking to get his very promising career back on track with an impressive showing on March 21.

Opponents for Russ and Hardy as well as other bouts on both upcoming cards will be announced shortly.

Tickets are priced at $125, $85, $65 and $45, and can be purchased by calling the DiBella Entertainment office at (212) 947-2577.  For more information, please visit www.dbe1.com
Doors open at 6 p.m. ET, with the first bout scheduled for 7 p.m. ET.
