Unbeaten Irish middleweight sensation Duddy, born in Northern Ireland and now fighting out of Queens (NY), has been matched against veteran Julio Jean (7-6-12, 3 KOs) in the 10-round main event. Duddy is rated No. 15 by the World Boxing Association.
The Haitian-born Jean, now living in Florida, won a unanimous eight-round decision two fights ago against previously unbeaten Eromosele Albert (10-0), the former two-time Nigerian Olympian.
The World Boxing Council rates the Belarus-born Foreman, now fighting out of Brooklyn, as its No. 24 junior middleweight. He is a three-time Israeli amateur champion, as well as a title winner in the 2001 New York Golden Gloves. His opponent is Jimmy “The Dream” LeBlanc (11-9-4, 3 KOs), of South Boston, in the 10-round co-feature.
“We’re thrilled to have these two great prospects fighting on our card at The Castle,” New England Ringside president Rick Brutti said. “Fans coming to this show will look back in a couple of years, when Duddy and Foreman are world champions, and remember watching them fight for the first time in Boston. We have a strong undercard, too. It’s going to be a night to remember.”
Also scheduled to fight on the Feb. 4 card is 4-time New York City Golden Gloves champion Jorge “The Truth” Teron (9-0, 7 KOs), of Brooklyn, against lightweight Marcus “Bad” Luck (5-8-1, 3 KOs), Quincy (MA) super middleweight Chris Traietti (2-0, 1 KO), the 19-year-old Westfield State College psychology major, versus Bernard Higgins (Raleigh-Durham, NC) in his pro debut. Haverhill lightweight Simeon Dunwell (1-0, 1 KO) and Pawtucket (R.I.) super lightweight
Eddie Soto (3-0, 2 KOs) are slated to fight in separate matches. All bouts and fighters are subject to change as well as the approval of the Mass. Boxing Commission.
