Thomas Oosthuizen-Roland Bryant Set for 8/2 in NYC
On Thursday, August 2nd, DiBella Entertainment (DBE) returns to Roseland Ballrom in midtown Manhattan with another installment of the ever-popular Broadway Boxing series.
Headlining the card will be DBE's red-hot undefeated super middleweight contender, Thomas "Tommy Gun" Oosthuizen (19-0-1, 13KO's) squaring off against Florida's Rowland Bryant (16-1, 11KO's) in a 12-round clash for Oosthuizen's International Boxing Organization (IBO) title.
In the co-feature bout of the evening, DBE's newly crowned WBC Continental America's light heavyweight champion, "Irish" Seanie Monaghan (14-0, 9KO's) will look to keep his perfect record intact before his army of supporters that are sure to pack the ballroom once again for what promises to be another exciting night of fights.
"This will be our fourth Broadway Boxing card in New York City this year, and each one has been better than the last," said Lou DiBella, president of DiBella Entertainment. "We are going to load the undercard with some of the New York area's most exciting young talent. In the co-feature, you are going to see the single most popular and exciting fighter in all of New York, Seanie Monaghan. Seanie continues to improve and his rabid fan base grows exponentially each time he steps into the ring.
"In the main event, fighting for the first time in New York is our South African superstar-in-the-making Tommy Oosthuizen. Tommy is a fight or two away from competing for a world championship, and we are looking forward to showcasing him to our New York audience."
At just 24 years old, Oosthuizen is one of the most promising young stars in all of boxing. Already rated as high as #4 in the IBF world rakings, Oosthuizen is coming off a dominant 10-round unanimous decision over fellow super middleweight contender Marcus Johnson (21-1, 15KO's, at the time), which was shown live on ShoBox: The New Generation this past April. Oosthuizen hopes to secure a world title opportunity in the near future, but he must first get by the dangerous Bryant.
The 32-year-old Bryant is coming off his most impressive win to date; a third-round TKO on April 21 over three-time world title challenger Librado Andrade. A win over Oosthuizen would put Bryant (IBF #13) right into the title picture.
A complete list of bouts will be announced shortly. Tickets are priced at $125, $85, $65 and $45, with a limited number of VIP tables available for purchase as well. VIP tickets are priced at $150, and there are four seats to a table. Tickets can be purchased by calling DiBella Entertainment at (212) 947-2577. Tickets go on sale this upcoming Monday, July 2.
