A bevy of New York City stars on the rise highlighted the card from the Grand Ballroom at the Manhattan Center (November 18), headlined by Brooklyn's unbeaten junior welterweight sensation Dmitriy Salita vs. Paul Delgado.
In televised under card fights, Jaidon Codrington takes on Anthony Osbourne in a scheduled six-round super middleweight clash; while Ehinomen "Hino" Ehikhamenor squares off against Mark Miller in a cruiserweight contest slated for eight-rounds.

Giving the blow by blow commentary will be MSG Network's Sam Rosen, teaming up with boxing authority Tony Paige to handle the expert analyst duties, and New York native and former Golden Gloves champion Brian Adams for ringside reporting.
The Broadway Boxing cards originate from venues in the five boroughs, the greater New York Metropolitan Tri-State area, and Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Connecticut. Mohegan Sun is the series site sponsor. Turner Construction, HBO Sports, and Gallagher's Steak House are also sponsors.
