Photos: Joshua Clottey Returns, Final New York Presser

BRONX, NY - Opening with a ten seconds of silence to remember the fallen victims on the twelfth anniversary of 9/11, Joe DeGuardia hosted the Press Conference today for Star Boxing's "Rockin Fights 10" set for this Saturday, SEPTEMBER 14 at The Paramount in Huntington, New York.

The  Press Conference was held at Meehan's of Huntington, directly across from The Paramount.

Joe DeGuardia, President of Star Boxing

"This is a day that is important to all Americans and we remember those lost on September 11, 2001 with boxing's silent ten count."

"We've got a terrific card of professional boxing headlined by 'The Fighting Pride of Huntington', Chris Algieri in the main event and former world champion Joshua Clottey in the co-main."

 

"As Babe Ruth built Yankee Stadium, Chris Algieri has built The Paramount into one of the premier venues for boxing in the country."

"Joshua Clottey is a former world champion who has fought the top names in boxing including Manny Pacquiao and Miguel Cotto. His fight against Cotto at Madison Square Garden was a sensational war that most had him winning."

"As we know this Saturday is the biggest night in the sport, for no extra cost we are offering fans the opportunity to watch the Mayweather/Alvarez fight LIVE from Las Vegas following the main event. This is the best bargain in New York City to watch the fight."

"I've prepared well and I'm ready for the challenges that Wilfredo Acuna poses."

Known as 'The Fighting Pride of Huntington", Algieri, 17-0-0 (7KO's) with be making the third start of his 2013 campaign, clashing with tough Nicaraguan veteran Wilfredo "EL Zurdo" Acuna, 14-12-0 (11KO's) in the main event at "ROCKIN FIGHTS 10".
