News: Kielczweski; Chilemba-Saunders; Holm-Lamare

NEW YORK - Crowd pleasers Ryan "Polish Prince" Kielczweski and Sonya Lamonakis could steal the "Road To Glory" show from a card stacked with world-class fighters, on the undercard of Saturday night's DiBella Entertainment-presented special HBO Boxing After Dark tripleheader, live from the MGM Grand Theater at Foxwoods Resort Casino in Mashantucket, Connecticut.

The angelic-looking Kielczweski (13-0, 2 KOs), fighting out of Quincy, MA, puts his unbeaten record on the line against Jeremy McLaurin (9-3, 5 KOs) in an eight-round bout.  An entertaining super featherweight who looks more like a choirboy than prizefighter, the 23-year-old "Ryan K" was a standout amateur (118-26 record) boxer, highlighted by a silver medal performance in the 2008 National Golden Gloves tournament.

Greece-native Lamonakis (6-0-2, 1 KO), a heavyweight from Turner Falls, MA, takes on Tanzee Daniels (4-1-1, 1 KO), out of Queens (NY).  Lamonakis' aggressive style is in stark contrast to the mild-mannered, caring elementary school teacher that she is in her "real world" at PS241 in Manhattan.

"Road To Glory," headlined by a 10-round title bout featuring undefeated super middleweight contender Edwin "La Bomba" Rodriguez (21-0, 14 KOs), fighting out of nearby Worcester, MA, defending his United States Boxing Association (USBA) against unbeaten power-puncher Jason "Monstruo" Escalera (13-0-1, 12 KOs), of Union City, NJ.

Also fighting on the HBO BAD show is undefeated Luis Orlando "Orlandito" Del Valle (16-0, 11 KOs) versus former three-time, two-division world champion Vic "Raging Bull" Darchinyan (37-5-1, 27 KOs), in the 10-round co-feature for the vacant North American Boxing Federation (NABF) super bantamweight title.

World Boxing Council (WBC) International welterweight champion Antonin Decarie (26-1, 7 KOs), rated No. 8 by the WBC, and fighting out of Quebec, takes on the unbeaten Alex Perez (16-0, 9 KOs), of Newark, New Jersey, in a bout for the vacant North American Boxing Federation (NABF) title at stake.

The event is promoted by DiBella Entertainment, in association with Joe DeGuardia's Star Boxing and Gary Shaw Productions.  All three bouts will be aired on HBO's Boxing After Dark beginning at 9:30 p.m. ET/PT.

Veteran light heavyweight Rayco "War" Saunders (22-16-2, 9 KOs) has replaced injured Zsolt Erdei as Issac "Golden Boy" Chilemba's (12-1-1, 9 KOs) opponent in an eight-round bout.  Doors open at 5:30 p.m. ET with the first bout scheduled for 6:30 p.m. ET.

"Road to Glory" is the highly anticipated HBO Boxing After Dark tripleheader, featuring some of the brightest young fighters in all of boxing looking to continue on their paths toward their respective world championships.  The card will take place on Saturday, September 29, at MGM Grand at Foxwoods.  Tickets are still on sale and can be purchased through the Foxwoods box office by calling 1 (800) 200-2882. Tickets are priced at $45, $75, $100 and $200.

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. -- Fresquez Productions held a press conference today to announce its "Fire And Ice" card, headlined by a rematch between 12-time, three-division world champion Holly "The Preacher's Daughter" Holm (31-2-3, 9 KOs) - the recognized pound-for-pound Queen of Boxing - and four-time world title-holder Myriam Lamare (20-3, 10 KOs) for the IFBA and IBA light welterweight titles on Friday night, December 7 at Route 66 Casino Hotel in Albuquerque.

"Fire And Ice," presented by Fresquez Productions in association with Route 66 Casino Hotel, will find Holly matched against a French boxer for her third straight fight having split her last two fights against Anne Sophie Mathis (25-2). Their most recent fight this past June resulted in a 10-round decision win for Holm for the IBA, WBF and WBAN welterweight championships.

Holm won a unanimous 10-round decision over Lamare (who will fight for only the second time outside of France) back on January 23, 2008 in Albuquerque, by scores of 98-92, 97-93 and 96-94 in Holm's successful WIBA welterweight title defense.

"Holly Holm has proven that she's the best pound-for-pound women's fighter in the world and Myriam Lamare is the No. 1 world-rated light welterweight," promoter Lenny Fresquez said. "Their first fight was very competitive and I don't expect anything less in their rematch on December 7 at the beautiful Route 66 Casino Hotel."

The 30-year-old Holm (31-2-3, 9 KOs) has defeated a Who's Who list of woman boxers from the 140 through 154-pound weight classes, including Mathis, Christy Martin, Mary Jo Sanders, Mia St. John, Jane Couch, Duda Yankovich and Chevelle Hallback (twice).

Lamare, a 37-year-old fighting out of Marseille, won a 10-round decision against Hallback in her last action (November 5, 2011) for the vacant IBF light welterweight crown.

"People tell me, 'At least this fight won't be so hard,'" Holm commented. "But I think that every fight is tough," Holm commented. "When Myriam and I met last time, it was one of my toughest fights. I felt like she had me guessing her game plan from round to round. I have faith in my promoter (Lenny Fresque3z), who always believes in me, and my trainer. I've become a better person in and out of the ring. I'm as nervous as I'll ever be, but I'm excited to take on the challenge." 

Supporting fights showcasing local boxers was also announced: light welterweight Matthew "Champ" Baca (1-0, 1 KO) vs. TBA (6 rounds), female light welterweight Victoria "La Reina de la Guerra" Cisneros (6-13-2, 2 KOs) vs. Australian invader Diana Prazak (11-1, 7 KOs) in an eight-round bout, bantamweight Raymond "Hollywood" Montez (5-2, 3 KOs) vs. Jazzma Hogue (2-2-1) in a six-round match, undefeated welterweights Cristian Cabral (4-0 3 KOs) vs. Grant John (2-0), plus amateur standout featherweight Jason Sanchez will be making his pro debut vs. Gene Perez (1-0), , in a four-round fight.  All fights and fighters are subject to change.
