Joe Smith Jr Headlines Rockin Fights 18

Star Boxing President and CEO Joe DeGuardia proudly announces the 18th installment of the wildly popular “Rockin Fights” series, Saturday, April 18th from The Paramount in Huntington, NY.

Headlining this exciting card will be Joe “The Irish Bomber” Smith Jr. (17-1 14KO’s, Mastic, NY) battling Cory “Black Ice” Cummings (18-8-1 13KO’s, Baltimore, MD) in a Light Heavyweight 10 round contest.

This will be the first main event for Smith at The Paramount. Hailing from nearby Mastic, Smith will have a large throng of supporters on hand as he steps up in class against the very experienced Cummings.

Smith is coming off an impressive first round TKO over Maxell Taylor at the Paramount which took place on December 20th, 2014. It was an impressive Star Boxing debut for Smith who hopes to follow in the long line of great Irish-American fighters.

Cummings has been in with many of the top Super Middleweights and Light Heavyweights throughout his career and scored an upset victory on October 20th, 2014 over former world title challenger Yusef Mack. Cummings has also fought former World Champions William Joppy, Keith Holmes, and Montell Griffith. This will be the toughest fight to date for Joe Smith and promises to be an all action affair.

Promoter Joe DeGuardia had this to say about this upcoming fight, “Joe Smith takes a big step up in class taking on Cory Cummings. Cummings is no easy mark for anyone and Smith knows he will be in for a fight. Smith has asked me to make these kind of matches for him because he and his manager, Jerry Capobianco, believe in his ability. I can guarantee another action packed night April 18th at The Paramount as has become our tradition at Star Boxing”.
