Orlando Del Valle, Mark Davis Return on 9/16 in NYC

New York, NY - On September 16, Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson's SMS Promotions and DiBella Entertainment (DBE) will host a special Monday night of boxing at the beautiful Resorts World Casino NYC in Jamaica, Queens.  Titled "Big Apple Boxing", it will be the firstcard staged by both promoters at the recently built casino, located in the same area of Queens in which 50 Cent grew up and began building his business empire. The card will feature a number of top up-and-coming talented prospects from both SMS Promotions and DBE, including two future stars that the companies have just signed to exclusive co-promotion contracts.

The two main bouts will feature SMS-promoted Mark Davis (17-0, 5KO's) looking to keep his undefeated record intact and continue climbing the lightweight world ratings, and DBE's super bantamweight contender Luis "Orlandito" Del Valle (17-1, 12KO's).  Both bouts are scheduled for eight rounds.

"I aim to deliver the most exciting fights possible. 'Big Apple Boxing' on September 16 will bring together extraordinary talent. The action will be intense," stated 50 Cent.

"It is great to be working with 50 and SMS Promotions on this special Monday night of boxing and we're looking forward to putting on a great card at Resorts World Casino," said DiBella.

Additional bouts on the card, as well as opponents for both Davis and Del Valle, will be announced soon.  The card on September 16 will be the third consecutive card staged by the two promoters within the last three months.  The events have been a hot summer ticket for New York fight fans and celebs alike, attracting such actors as Rosie Perez, Susan Sarandon, Burt Young, Cuba Gooding Jr., Holt McCallany and Danny Aiello, as well as supermodel Adriana Lima and former New York Knick fan-favorite Larry Johnson among others.

The card is promoted by SMS Promotions and DiBella Entertainment and sponsored by SMS Audio.

Tickets for the event go on sale tomorrow and are priced at $125, $85, $65 and $45.  Tickets are available for purchase by calling Resorts World Casino NYC at (718) 215-2828 or by visiting:
