Sean Monaghan Very Open To Facing Chavez or Vera

NEW YORK -- The Big Apple's undefeated Top-10 light heavyweight contender "Irish" SEANIE MONAGHAN hosted a New York Media Workout today at Mendez Boxing gym.

One of New York's top boxing gate attractions, Monaghan (18-0, 11 KOs), of Long Beach, NY, will be traveling to Las Vegas, for his pay-per-view debut, defending his World Boxing Council (WBC) Continental Americas light heavyweight title against Anthony Caputo-Smith (14-1, 10 KOs), of Kenneth Square, PA.  The Monaghan - Smith rumble will open the Timothy Bradley vs. Juan Manuel Márquez pay-per-view telecast on Saturday, October 12, at the Thomas & Mack Center on the campus of the University of Nevada, Las Vegas.  The fights will be produced and distributed live by HBO Pay-Per-View®, beginning at 9:00 p.m. ET / 6:00 p.m. PT.

"I have seen a couple of Caputo-Smith's DVDs. He is going to get hit with something real hard. I am not going to try to knock him out but he will end up walking into something. He can't help himself. He's a big guy, so when I do hit him with something hard he is going to go down real hard. And make a lot of noise doing it!

"Is Chávez Jr. going to stay at light heavyweight?  If so I would love to fight him before he eats himself up to cruiserweight. How about Vera?  I'd love to fight him, too.

"There are way more Long Beach [New York] Irish fans, than I thought, traveling to Las Vegas for this fight.  They are going to drink that place dry. Then eat all their food.  That's a Wynn-Win Seanario, baby!

"We sparred 10 rounds yesterday. Now I am just trying to hold back. I am ready to fight today. Look at these abs [serious 6 pack]. That's hard work."

Monaghan, 31, captured the WBC Continental Americas light heavyweight title on June 14, 2012, via an eighth-round TKO of Romaro Johnson and he successfully defended it last October 24, winning a unanimous decision over Rayco Sanders. Known for his aggressive style and good punching power, especially to the body, Monaghan is currently world-rated No. 10 by the World Boxing Association (WBA) and No. 11 by the International Boxing Federation (IBF).  In last his fight, on April 13, he scored a first-round knockout of Dion Stanley on the undercard of the Nonito Donaire - Guillermo Rigondeaux world junior featherweight championship at a sold-out Radio City Music Hall.

Remaining tickets to the Bradley vs. Márquez welterweight championship event, priced at $800, $600, $400, $300, $200, $100 and $50, can be purchased at the Thomas & Mack Center Box Office, online at UNLVtickets.com, at UNLVtickets Outlet Town Square Las Vegas Concierge, or by calling 702-739-FANS (3267). 

Episode two of 24/7 Bradley/Márquez premieres Saturday, Oct. 5 on HBO -- immediately following World Championship Boxing --at approximately 12:30 a.m. ET/PT.

I've seen him fight. He will drown against the top 10 in the division, let alone top 5. He's not that good. Just another guy. For the record, Chavez and Vera arent top 5. In any division.
