Jorge Diaz Returns on The Undercard of ShoBox's 200th

The three-fight undercard has been announced for this Friday's blockbuster nationally televised quadrupleheader of world-class professional boxing in celebration of the landmark 200th episode of "SHOBOX: The New Generation," live from Event Center at the Turning Stone Resort Casino in Upstate New York.

Headlining the un-televised portion of the historic evening will be Brunswick, New Jersey's tough "King" Jorge Diaz (17-3, 10 KOs), who will be looking to return to the win column after a couple of setbacks against top-level opposition. The popular Diaz will face Philadelphia's Ramone Ellis (4-11-2, 2 KOs) in a featherweight six-rounder.

Diaz vs. Ellis will serve as the chief supporting bout to four world-class matchups featuring eight fighters with a combined record of 115-5-1.  Presented by GH3 Promotions and Greg Cohen Promotions and sponsored by Modell's Sporting Goods, the quadrupleheader will air live on SHOWTIME at 10 p.m. ET/PT (delayed on the West Coast).

Tickets are priced at $60, $35, and $25 (subject to additional fees) are on sale now at the Turning Stone box office, by calling (315) 361-7469, or through www.Ticketmaster.com. The live telecast will begin at 10:00 p.m. eastern, with undercard bouts getting underway at 8:00 p.m. On fight night, doors will open at 7:00 p.m.

In the night's main event, undefeated middleweight prospect Antoine Douglas (14-0, 9 KOs), of Washington, D.C., will take a big step-up in opposition when he faces once-beaten, former world title challenger Michel Soro (23-1, 13 KOs), of France by way of Ivory Coast, in a 10-round bout.

The co-feature showcases a matchup of undefeated-yet-untested prospects, each taking an important step.  Hard-hitting super middleweight prospect Jerry Odom (11-0, 10 KOs), of Washington, D.C., will take on Cuban amateur standout Vilier Quinonez (8-0, 5 KOs), of Miami by way of Cuba, in an eight-round match.

In another eight rounder undefeated welterweight Cecil McCalla (18-0, 6 KOs), of Randallstown, Md., will face Oscar Godoy (13-2, 6 KOs), of Watsonville, California. In the night's opening televised bout, Canada's Tony "The Lightning" Luis will take on undefeated Wanzell "Venom" Ellison (11-0-1, 5 KOs) of Newark, New Jersey, in a lightweight eight-rounder

A pair of four-rounders will top off the action as Philadelphia's undefeated Sam Teah (4-0, 2 KOs) will face also undefeated Lavisas Williams (4-0-1, 3 KOs) of Rochester New York; and featherweight Glenn Durzum (3-0, 2 KOs) of Baltimore, Maryland, will take on Nycedric Ellis (0-1) of Raleigh, North Carolina.

26-year-old Diaz lost just one of his first 18 fights before running into Dominican bomber Yenifel Vicente (TKOBY 6) in June and undefeated Luis Rosa (L8) in January of this year. Once thought of as one of boxing's hottest young prospects, Diaz will be looking to regain some of his once surging momentum against Ellis.
