Shaw informed President Sargsyan that he plans to organize a Darchinyan world title fight in Armenia for spring 2010. Darchinyan, a two-division world champion, is a native of Armenia.
“Armenia has never hosted a professional boxing event much less a world championship fight, so who better to headline than Armenia’s No. 1 sports personality, Vic Darchinyan,” said Shaw. “President Sargsyan expressed his readiness to assist in the implementation of this event. He also expressed confidence that it would attract thousands of Armenian boxing fans and would be an excellent opportunity to present Armenia to the world since this would be televised internationally. I look forward to promoting this historic event and I thank Vic and Elias Nasser for their continued support as friends and partners. It is because of them that I am afforded this wonderful opportunity.”
DEREK “POOH” ENNIS TO TAKE ON JAMES MOORE FOR THE USBA JR. MIDDLEWEIGHT TITLE ON OCTOBER 16TH AT THE LEGENDARY BLUE HORIZON
FIGHT WITH MAJOR IMPICLATIONS TO HELP CELEBRATE POWER PRODUCTIONS 10TH ANNIVERSARY SHOW
PHILADELPHIA (September 3rd, 2009)—On Friday night October 16th, Greg Robinson’s Power Productions will celebrate the tenth anniversary of the successful promotional company in grand style as a bout of major proportions will serve as the main event for the special card.
In a twelve round bout for the USBA Jr. Middleweight title, Derek “Pooh” Ennis will take on James Moore.
Ennis of Philadelphia has a record 18-2-1 with twelve wins coming by knockout. Ennis has been longing for this opportunity as he quietly has been climbing the ladder by racking up six consecutive wins which includes his latest outing being a six round unanimous decision over John Mackey on July 10th in a nationally televised contest by ESPN 2 at The Arena in Philadelphia.
In that bout, Ennis scored two knockdowns en route to the victory over the game visitor from Alabama. Ennis was undefeated in his first eleven bouts (10-0-1) before a knockout loss to Allen Conyers on Showtime.
Moore has a record of 17-2 with ten knockouts and brings a great fan base as he is very popular in the Irish circles especially in his adopted home of New York.
Moore is originally from Arklow Wicklow, Ireland and won his first fifteen bouts which included a ten round unanimous decision over former world title-challenger JC Candelo on March 15th, 2008. Moore was then upset by Philadelphia’s Gabriel Rosado before winning a bout against Christian Lloyd Joseph.
On December 13, 2008, Moore stepped up against Yuri Foreman (26-0) in highly publicized bout on Showtime. Moore came up a little short in that bout which could have catapulted him into a title opportunity. One win over Joseph De Los Santos on May 8th put Moore back in line for this critical fight against Ennis.
“This fight is fitting and appropriate for my 10th anniversary show”, Said, promoter Greg Robinson.
“The Blue Horizon is where I started and to have this kind of fight headline the show plus a packed undercard will make it a very special night. “
A full undercard will be completed shortly but already slated to appear are Jr. Welterweight Tyric Robinson (9-4-1, 3 KO’s), Featherweight Coy Evans (4-0-1) and Super Middleweight Jameel Wilson (13-16-3, 8 KO’s) in six round bouts.
In four round bouts, Middleweight Derrick Webster (2-0, 1 KO), Cruiserweight John Burgos (0-1), Jr. Middleweight Rachel Clark (2-2-1, 2 KO’s) Heavyweight John Mercurio (2-0, 2 KO’s) and Middleweight Mario Mina (2-0, 2 KO’s)
