" I am extremely excited about each one of these fine young athletes" stated DeGuardia. " Star Boxing is committed to take talented young fighters and help them reach their highest potential and becoming world champions".
Ouali (21-2, 13KO Boca Raton, FL) is coming off a career best effort knocking out world rated Irving Garcia in two rounds on March 23, 2007, a bout televised nationally on ESPN2's popular fight series, "Friday Night at The Fights". Ouali is currently ranked in the top 20 of the WBC.
Edouard (18-1-2, 10KO West Palm Beach, FL) is a crowd pleasing fan favorite. His memorable brawl with Willie Gibbs in August of 2004, was voted ESPN2's "Fight of the Year". Daniel moved up in weight to challenge Middleweight champ Jermain Taylor in February of 2005 but was unsuccessful in his effort. Edouard is scheduled to take on Albert Erosomole on July 20, 2007, a bout which can be seen on ESPN2.
Vargas (11-0, 5KO Toledo, OH) was a member of the 2004 United States Olympic team competing as a Heavyweight. Devin has been impressive since he turned professional in November of 2004 and has been waiting for someone like Star Boxing to come along and advance his career at an accelerated pace. With the Heavyweight division lacking a true American prospect, Devin feels he can fill the void and become a world champion.
Hunter (7-1, 3KO Philadelphia, PA) was an alternate on the 2004 United States Olympic team. Eric has blinding speed and tons of charisma. He wowed the fans in attendance in his last bout, a six round decision victory over tough guy Vineash Rungea, April 11, 2007. Hunter is scheduled to fight on July 12, 2007 against Hassan Wasswa.
Eric Hunter seems to have summed it up best for the Fantastic Four by stating, " Joe is the future in the boxing industry and I know he will take me to the top".
