Rodriguez-Escalera, Del Valle-Darchinyan, Erdei-Chilemba on September 29th on HBO

New York, NY (8/30/12) – On Saturday, September 29, DiBella Entertainment presents the HBO Boxing After Dark tripleheader, live from the MGM Grand at Foxwoods, in Mashantucket, CT. Headlining the card will be Worcester, Massachusetts’ Edwin “La Bomba” Rodriguez (21-0, 14KO’s) defending his USBA super middleweight championship against New Jersey knockout artist Jason “El Monstruo” Escalera (13-0-1, 12KO’s). In the televised co-feature, Luis “Orlandito” Del Valle (16-0, 11KO’s) faces his toughest opponent to date when he squares off against former world champion Vic Darchinyan (37-5-1, 27KO’s) for the vacant NABF super bantamweight title. Opening up the televised portion of the card will be former two-division undefeated world champion Zsolt Erdei (33-0, 18KO’s) taking on Isaac Chilemba (19-1-1, 9KO’s) in a key light heavyweight matchup. The card is promoted by DiBella Entertainment, in association with Joe DeGuardia’s Star Boxing and Gary Shaw Productions. HBO begins live coverage at 9:30PM ET/PT.

The tripleheader is being called “Road to Glory” and the name is quite fitting as each fight carries heavy implications. It is just the second time that the top-rated Rodriguez will see airtime on the network (first in the main event), and it is a first for Escalera, Del Valle, Chilemba, and Erdei. Together the five fighters have a combined record of 102-1-2, with the lone fighter on the card sporting more than one loss being the veteran and former three-time world champion Darchinyan.

Lou DiBella, President of DiBella Entertainment (DBE), has a knack for signing good young talent. DiBella guided the career of Andre Berto from his pro-debut to his first championship. He was also was the only promoter who was willing to take a shot at a then unknown Argentinean, Sergio Martinez. So when this past year’s ESPN Boxing’s Prospects to Watch List, compiled by esteemed writer Dan Rafael, came out, it was little surprise that several DBE-promoted fighters, including Rodriguez and Del Valle, topped the list. DiBella sees championship material and expects big things in the careers from each of the DBE fighters on the card, and for that reason he feels there could be not one, not two, but three separate breakout performances on September 29.
