WBA No. 9 rated middleweight contender challenger “Mean” Joe Greene (16-0, 12 KOs), the 2004 National Golden Gloves Tournament champion and reigning NABA middleweight champion from Queens (NY), headlines in the 10-round main event. Undefeated middleweight Peter “Kid Chocolate” Quillin (15-0, 12 KOs), of Brooklyn, faces battle-tested Troy “TNT” Lowry (27-7, 16 KOs), of St. Paul (MN), in an eight-round Special Middleweight Attraction.
The 22-year-old Teron (18-0-1, 11 KOs), WBC No. 20 rated lightweight and 3-time New York Golden Gloves champion, will use his long reach and height advantage (4-inches, 6’ 0” to 5’ 8”) to box the power-punching Navarette (16-4-1, 13 KOs), former Intercontinental Mundo Hispano title-holder.
Teron is coming off of impressive back-to-back victories against Jefferson Auraad Rodriguez (20-10) by first-round TKO and an eight-round unanimous decision (80-72, 80-72, 79-73) and near shutout in his last action (September 5, 2007) versus Mike Gonzalez (10-1-1).
“It’s always exciting to fight at home because my family and friends watching makes me happy,” Teron said. “I’m also excited to be fighting in the co-feature for the first time. It’s a progression of my career and I want to show everybody what I can do. I’ll be headlining my own show soon. In 2008, I plan on fighting one or two 10-rounders and then I’ll be ready to take on the top lightweights in the world. I’m ready for the top level; no more swing bouts or 8-rounders. I’m fighting 10-rounders and eventually 12-rounders. I feel great for this fight.”
Dominican-born heavyweight prospect Nagy Aguilera (4-0, 2 KOs), the two-time New York Golden Gloves champion raised in Puerto Rico and fighting out of Newburgh (NY), takes on Darryl Holley (6-5, 1 KO), of Brigantine (NJ) in a 6-round bout.
