Oosthuizen vs Johnson ShoBox Undercard is Announced

NEW YORK -- Tomorrow night, DiBella Entertainment (DBE) will present an exciting tripleheader on ShoBox: The New Generation, live on SHOWTIME® (11 p.m. ET/PT, delayed on the West Coast) at Buffalo Run Casino in Miami, Okla.  Headlining the seven-bout card will be highly regarded undefeated South African southpaw, Thomas "Tommy Gun" Oosthuizen (18-0-1, 13KO's) taking on his most dangerous opponent to date when he meets hard-hitting Marcus "Too Much" Johnson (21-1, 15KO's) in a 10-round super middleweight showdown.

Also seeing action on the televised portion of the card will be fellow DiBella Entertainment prospects, Luis "Orlandito" Del Valle (15-0, 11KO's) and 2008 Puerto Rican Olympian Jose "The Sniper" Pedraza (7-0, 6KO's).  Both Del Valle and Pedraza are members of Team Puerto Rico, a group of some of the most promising prospects in all of boxing promoted by DiBella Entertainment, Gary Shaw Productions, Javier Bustillo's Universal Promotions and Warriors Boxing. Like Oosthuizen, the world-rated Del Valle will take on his toughest opponent to date when he meets once-beaten Christopher Martin (23-1-3, 6KO's) in the 10-round super bantamweight co-feature.  Pedraza, who is the current WBC Super Featherweight Youth Champion, is set to open up the telecast when he squares off against Gil Garcia (5-2-1, 1KO) over eight scheduled rounds.

Before the SHOWTIME® cameras begin rolling, the fans in Miami will be treated to an entertaining undercard, featuring DBE fighters, Ivan Redkach (9-0, 8KO's), Tor Hamer (14-1, 10KO's) and Allan Benitez (4-1, 1KO) all seeing action.

Redkach, originally hailing from Ukraine, but not living and training in Los Angeles, CA will be making his 2012 debut after going 4-0, with 4 knockouts, in 2011.  Redkach is scheduled to face off against Rynell Griffin (6-8-2, 2KO's) in the lightweight prospect's first scheduled eight-rounder.

New York-based heavyweight Hamer has been a staple on DBE's Broadway Boxing shows over the past few years.  Hamer made his anticipated return to the ring on March 7, after spending a little over a year on the shelf tending to a hand injury. Hamer returned in impressive fashion, scoring a devastating second-round knockout over Dieuly Aristilde.  Hamer will look to add another impressive victory to his resume when he takes on veteran Galen Brown (37-19-1, 23KO's) in their six-round heavyweight matchup.

In another heavyweight match-up, undefeated heavyweight contender, Joe "The Future" Hanks (19-0, 13KO's) will look to make it a perfect 20-0 when he takes on eighty fight veteran Marcus Rhode, in a six-round heavyweight special attraction.

Rounding out the card will be the Robert Garcia-trained Benitez as he takes on Oklahoma City's own Terrence Harris in a four-round lightweight contest.
