Seanie Monaghan, Redkach, Bracero Win in NYC Bouts

By Jake Donovan

Earlier tonight before a near capacity crowd at the Roseland Ballroom in New York City, DiBella Entertainment presented the latest installment of its Broadway Boxing series with an action-packed seven-bout card. The evening, sponsored by Manfredi Auto Group, and Newlio.com, was promoted in association with Everlast to support Breast Cancer Awareness month.

Headlining the card was Long Beach, New York’s undefeated light heavyweight “Irish” Seanie Monaghan. This was the third straight headlining bout for Monaghan, who, like always, brought his army of fans over from Long Island with him. On this night, Monaghan squared off against Rayco “War” Saunders in a 10-round light heavyweight title bout, for Monaghan’s WBC Continental America’s belt.

Saunders went the distance with some of the top light heavyweights in the world, including most recently DBE’s world-rated Isaac Chilemba, so Monaghan knew going in that Saunders would be a strong test.

Monaghan pressed the action from the start, combining constant pressure and improved boxing ability, throwing nice combinations to both the body and head. He also demonstrated improved defensive skills, as he easily slipped punches on the inside and used a piston-like jab to set up his power shots.

After 10 rounds, scorecards read 99-91 twice, and 98-92, all in favor of “Irish” Seanie Monaghan, who improved to 16-0 (10 KOs).

DBE’s red-hot junior welterweight prospect Ivan Redkach showed why boxing insiders continue to rave about him as he annihilated Tebor Brosch, stopping him at 2:07 of the very first round. The Ukrainian-native Redkach, now living and training in Los Angeles, immediately had Brosch in trouble as he began firing blistering shots with both hands. Midway through the round, a huge straight left hand from the southpaw Redkach sent Brosch reeling back into the ropes. Redkach jumped all over his opponent, scoring with hellacious shots from both hands. With Brosch on the ropes on unsteady legs, the referee mercifully called a halt to the contest. With the win, Redkach improves to 12-0, 11KO’s, with 10 of them coming in four rounds or less.


Gabriel Bracero (20-1, 3KO) scored his second straight with an eight-round unanimous decision over Puerto Rican knockout artist Eric Cruz (13-11-2, 13KO). Scores were 80-72 (2x) and 79-73 in a largely pedestrian affair. Brooklyn-based Bracero remains a crowd favorite, though the first of three consecutive appearances at the venue resulted in his lone career loss to DeMarcus Corley earlier this year.

Heather Hardy and Unique Harris waged war in their four-round matchup of super bantamweight newcomers. In the end, it was Hardy (2-0, 0KO) who prevailed with a unanimous decision. Scores were 40-36 (2x) and 39-37 for the Brooklynite, whose pro debut came on the August 2 edition of Broadway Boxing in this venue.

Floriano Pagliara (14-4-2, 7KO) improved on six-round draw in this very same address this past August with a unanimous decison over Jeremy McLaurin (9-5, 5KO) in their eight-round super featherweight bout. Scores were 80-72 (2x) and 78-74 for Pagliara, Germany-born and raised in Italy but who now calls Brooklyn home. The botu was Pagliara's third straight at the Roseland Ballroom.

Travis Peterkin (5-0, 3KO) won a four-round decision over Hamid Abdul-Mateen (3-3-2, 0KO). Scores were 40-36 (2x) and 39-37 in favor of Peterkin in a matchup of Brooklyn-based light heavyweights.

Delen Parsley opened the show with a six-round win over Ibahiem King (10-8-2, 4KO). Parsley (9-0, 2KO) overcame some rough moments in round two to otherwise dominate - or at least control - the action in the show's curtain raiser.
