FELICIANO VS TSURKAN: World rated brawlers featured on ESPN2 Friday Night Fights

Bronx, NY - Mar 24, 2008 After his incredible ten round heart fought war against Kermit Cintron for the IBF Welterweight title on November 23, 2007, that had every fan in attendance on their feet rooting for the underdog, Jesse "El Rayo" Feliciano (15-6-3, 9KO's #15 IBF) returns to the ring for yet another no holds barred battle against one of the most formidable boxers in the Jr Middleweight division, former NABF Champion Andrey Tsurkan (25- 3, 16 KO's # 10 WBC).. This sensational match up will be televised live on the very popular ESPN2 Friday Night Fights series on April 25th from the Utopia Paradise Theater in the Bronx, NY.

"I have two of my most exciting fighters going head to head on April 25. This fight has all the ingredients of fire, power and passion to be one of the best fights this year on ESPN2. This is what boxing is all about; real fighters, tough challenges, real fights," said Star Boxing CEO Joe DeGuardia.

Tsurkan recently lost his NABF title by a highly contentious split decision to the undefeated Yuri Foreman at the Paradise Theater on November 14,2007. Believing he won his last fight, as did fans in attendance, Tsurkan jumps right back into the fire as he battles the tough as nails Feliciano at the catch weight of 152 pounds.
Feliciano who also fights with passion, 'heart' and a cast iron chin, gave a visibly rattled and shocked Cintron the toughest fight of his career. Jesse came very close to scoring a huge upset but left the arena with a legion of endearing fans. A win over Tsurkan will most certainly put Feliciano right back into the title picture.

This explosive main event is brought to you by Star Boxing's immensely popular fight series "Punchin at the Paradise" in the Bronx.
