Rodriguez vs. Alcine, Hanks on ESPN's FNF, May 16th

Montreal -Star Boxing and Co-Promoter Choko Boxing are please to bring one of the year's most unique events in the boxing world to Montreal. On Friday May 16, ESPN's celebrated Friday Night Fights television program will be broadcasted live from the most incredible venue in town, the legendary Olympic Stadium.

This will be a memorable event since the "Big O" hasn't hosted any professional boxing for almost 35 years. The last fight was the famous Roberto Duran vs Sugar Ray Leonard in June of 1980, an event that became one of the greatest boxing confrontation in History.

The two hour live ESPN broadcast that will take place on Friday May 16 will showcase the Light Middleweight 10 round Main Event between STAR BOXING fighter Delvin RODRIGUEZ (28-7-1-21Ko) vs Montrealer & former WBA World Champion Joachim "Ti-Joa" ALCINE (35-7-1-21Ko).

We can expect Alcine's fight to be full of excitement - Ti Joa won his two last fights by TKO and is in great shape. After brilliant confrontations against Québécois David Lemieux and Stéphane Ouellet, the crowd should be pleased to see him perform at home once again.

Delvin Rodriguez is one of ESPN's most recognized fighters his famous FIGHT OF THE YEAR battle against Pawel Wolak still electrifies fans!  Rodriguez' last fight was against future Hall of Famer Miguel COTTO.

Alexandre Choko of Choko Boxing stated, "Following my 5 year journey to interview some of the greatest boxing legends of all time and write my book The Future of Boxing, it is with great pride that my first comeback professional boxing event will be televised in America in such a prestigious outlet. ESPN's Friday Night Fights being the equivalent of Monday Night Football to boxing fans, it's an honor to be part of such an exciting production".

Choko recently teamed with Joe DeGuardia, Star Boxing CEO and currently President of the Boxing Promoters Association. This is a first collaboration between the two promoters, who met when Choko was preparing his book The Future of Boxing and Joe DeGuardia was just elected President of the Boxing Promoters Association.

Star Boxing and Choko Boxing expect to bring the local fans, Haitian and Dominican community together to cheer for Joachim Alcine and Rodriguez.

I'd rather not see a has been vs a never was. Time for more fresh faces or at least guys who still can make a splash as these guys are done at the "higher" levels.

I think Joe Hanks is decent... got a decent skill set, just got beat by a better blob
