BOSTON - After an exciting night of fights in Boston on St. Patrick's Day, Golden Boy Promotions will return to this boxing rich town to team up with Murphy's Boxing U.S.A and Back East Promotions on Thursday, June 5 with a stacked card at the House of Blues featuring a title defense and a stellar lineup of New England's top prospects. In the 10-round Golden Boy Live! main event featured on FOX Sports 1 and FOX Deportes, Ontario, Canada's Logan McGuinness faces one of New England's finest, Mike "The Machine" Oliver, in a showdown for McGuinness' NABA Super Featherweight Title.

Plus, unbeaten heavyweight Alexis Santos from Lawrence, Mass. looks to follow up his March 17 stoppage over Sylvester Barron with another big knockout against an opponent to be named in an eight-round bout. Also, in non-televised super middleweight action, Gary O'Sullivan and Mark Deluca will be featured in separate bouts, welterweight Rashidi Ellis and cruiserweight Chris Traietti will face opponents to be named in six-round and eight round bouts respectively. Vinnie Carita will face Boston police officer Tyrone Smith in a rematch following their exciting draw in March.

Fighting out of Orangeville, Ontario, Canada, Logan McGuinness (20-0-1, 9 KOs) is a top Canadian prospect that expects to take his game to the next level in 2014. A professional since 2008, the 26-year-old won the NABA Championship at 126, 130 and 135 pounds. Now he expects to make a run for a world title shot but has to get past the tough Oliver first.

Connecticut southpaw Mike "The Machine" Oliver (26-5-1, 8 KOs) has long thrilled fans in the New England area with his technical boxing skills and ring savvy. The Marine officer owns victories over the likes Gary Stark Jr., Al Seeger and former World Champions Mauricio "Pintoso" Pastrana and Cruz Carbajal. Now, the 34-year-old hopes to give McGuinness a boxing lesson on June 5.

One of the best big men to emerge from New England since former Heavyweight World Champion John Ruiz, 24-year-old Alexis Santos (13-0, 11 KOs) looks to be on his way to big things in boxing's glamour division. A professional since 2009, Santos has ended six of his knockout victories in a single round and with his power and determination he is ready for whoever steps up to fight him.

Cork, Ireland's Gary O'Sullivan (16-1, 10 KOs) got a late start in the professional game, but as an Irish and former WBO International Champion, he's making up for lost time in rapid-fire fashion as he hopes to follow in the footsteps of Steve Collins as a world titleholder.

Quincy native Mark "The Italian Bazooka" DeLuca (9-0, 6 KOs) isn't just a promising up and comer, but a rising star as a trainer in the New England area as well. Owner of five wins in two rounds or less, the 26-year-old power puncher will be bringing the heat on June 5.

Unbeaten in his first five professional bouts, Lynn's Rashidi Ellis (5-0, 3 KOs) is a 20-year-old phenom with "star" written all over him. Flashy, fast and powerful, Ellis makes every fight look like a main event showcase.

Quincy's Chris Traietti (16-3, 12 KOs) is a veteran of the Iraq war and will showcase his fighting spirit in the ring on June 5. Winner of eight of his last nine bouts, with the only loss coming against former world title challenger Edwin Rodriguez, the popular 28-year-old is looking forward to performing for Boston fans once again.

Twenty-nine-year-old Vinnie "Kid Sal" Carita (9-1-1, 9 KOs) is another fan favorite in the Boston area and with all nine of his professional wins coming by knockout, that's no surprise. Carita will be seeking to set the record straight when he faces Boston police officer Tyrone Smith (5-8-3, 2 KOs) as they face off for the second time in four months.

Tickets, priced at $150 (reserved seating), $100 (reserved seating) and $45 (general admission) are on sale now and are available for purchase at the House of Blues Box Office, the Orpheum Theater box office or online at http://m.concerts.livenation.com/event/01004C389CC1B5BE, www.murphysboxingusa.com or www.backeastpromotions.com.
