Prescott vs Jargal Card: Heavyweight Joe Hanks is Added
Share Click Here To Email Printable version Search BoxingScene Database 

On April 22nd, one of the newest additions to Star Boxing's growing stable of undefeated fighters, Joe "The Future" Hanks, will make his debut fighting under the Star banner when he takes on Terrell Nelson on the undercard of Star Boxing's ESPN "Friday Night Fights" card at Mohegan Sun in Uncasville, CT. Hanks-Nelson is scheduled for six rounds in the heavyweight division, and will be one of the featured undercard bouts of the evening. Headlining the card is Bayan "The Mongolian Mongoose" Jargal (15-1-3, 10KO's) taking on "Khanqueror" Breidis Prescott (23-2, 19KO's) in a ten round jr. welterweight showdown.

"His nickname speaks for itself. Joe has all the tools to be the future of the heavyweight division," stated Joe DeGuardia, CEO and President of Star Boxing. "He is a big, strong, fast and athletic heavyweight and has tons of potential. I've had my eye on Joe for some-time now. We are confident that by this time next year, Joe will be making some serious noise in the Heavyweight division."

Standing at 6'4" and weighing in at an average of around 240 lbs of solid muscle Hanks (15-0, 10KO's) not only looks the part, but also has proven thus far that he can be a true force to be reckoned with in the heavyweight division, easily defeating his first fifteen foes. Only 28-years-old, Hanks gained valuable experience during his amateur days, sparring with such fighters as Heavyweight Champion, Wladamir Klitschko, Chris Byrd, Jameel McCline, and Larry Donald. As an amateur Hanks was a five-time Golden Gloves Champion, and was a National Golden Gloves semi-finalist in 2007. After the Nationals, Hanks promptly turned pro, scoring a 2nd round TKO over Joseph Rabotte on none other than a Star Boxing promoted card. Hank's first two pro fights actually came on Star cards, and if everything goes as planned, so will his championship fights, in The Future.

Hanks (15-0, 10KO's) vs. Nelson (8-11, 5KO's) is scheduled for six rounds in the heavyweight division. First bout is scheduled for 7:30PM. ESPN will begin live coverage of "Friday Night Fights" at 8PM ET with highly regarded prospect, 2007 Amateur World Champion and 2008 US Olympian, Demetrius Andrade (12-0, 8KO's) squaring off against Omar Bell (8-1, 5KO's) in an eight jr. middleweight match-up.

Tickets are on sale now and can be purchased by calling Ticketmaster at 1 (800) 745-3000 or visiting www.ticketmaster.com. Tickets can also be purchased by calling the Star Boxing office at (718) 823-2000 or visiting www.starboxing.com. Tickets are also available for purchase at the Mohegan Sun Box Office.
