Foreman, Del Valle, Dan, Bracero Opponents Are Set

New York, NY  - As previously announced, DiBella Entertainment's Broadway Boxing series returns Thursday, April 4, at Roseland Ballroom in New York City.  The stacked 11-bout card will feature a number of DBE's top young prospects and contenders including former WBA junior middleweight champion Yuri Foreman (29-2, 8KO's), Luis "Orlandito" Del Valle (16-1, 11KO's), WBC #6-rated welterweight Ionut "Jo Jo" Dan Ion (30-2, 17KO's) and Gabriel "Tito" Bracero (21-1, 4KO's).

The card is promoted by DiBella Entertainment and sponsored by Manfredi Auto Group, and Everlast. Tickets are currently on sale and can be purchased through Ticketmaster by calling (800) 745-3000.  Tickets are priced at $125, $85, $65 and $45.

After a two-year hiatus from the ring, the popular Brooklynite Foreman signed a promotional contract with DBE earlier this year and quickly returned to action, winning a six-round shutout decision over Brendan Baue on the DBE-promoted card on January 23, at BB King Blues Club.  In the second bout of his comeback, Foreman will square off against Gundrick King (18-9, 11KO's) in a six-round junior middleweight matchup.

Looking to put himself back into the win column after suffering his first pro defeat-on HBO in a decision loss to multiple world champion Vic Darchinyan-will be Puerto Rico's Luis "Orlandito" Del Valle (16-1, 11KO's).  The 26-year-old Del Valle, who is now training with Hall-of-Fame trainer Nacho Beristain, will see action against Andre Wilson (13-5, 11KO's) in an eight-round featherweight contest. 

Fighting for the second time under the DBE banner will be the former two-time world title challenger Ion. Former NABA light welterweight champion Ion, a native of Romania, now living and training in Montreal, Canada, will square off against Damian Frias (19-6-1, 10KO's) in an eight-round welterweight showdown.

Making his fourth straight appearance at Roseland Ballroom will be Brooklyn's own junior welterweight contender Gabriel "Tito" Bracero (21-1, 4KO's).  After dropping a decision in an absolute war to former world champion DeMarcus "Chop Chop" Corley on January 21, 2012, Bracero has reeled off three consecutive victories as he looks to reposition himself in line for another significant fight in the junior welterweight division. Bracero will see action in an eight-round bout against Pavel Miranda (19-9-1, 10KO's).

Additional bouts on the card, featuring top DBE prospects, as well as opponents for Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson's SMS Promotions-stabled fighters Luis Olivares (1-0, 1KO) and Donte Strayhorn, will be announced shortly

The card is promoted by DiBella Entertainment (DBE) and sponsored by Manfredi Auto Group,, and Everlast.  The event will be broadcast live on FIGHT NOW TV and on broadband through GFL.TV.  SNY will broadcast the event tape-delayed.  Tickets are currently on sale and can be purchased through Ticketmaster by calling (800) 745-3000.  Tickets are priced at $125, $85, $65 and $45 and may also be purchased at Roseland Ballroom's box office tomorrow evening. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. ET with the first bout scheduled for 7 p.m. ET.
