There is only one thing to do when you pack the World Famous Florentine Gardens Nightclub in Hollywood, California…do another show two weeks later. And that is exactly what will take place as Top Rank’s Solo Boxeo Tecate on Unimas returns to Tinseltown on Saturday, June 13th, 2015 at 7:00pm. Fans who missed out on the hottest boxing show both inside and outside the ring on May 30th, can now have a chance to experience HOLLYWOOD FIGHT NIGHT at its best this Saturday.
The 10th installment of the HOLLYWOOD FIGHT NIGHT series will feature an explosive Solo Boxeo Tecate Main Event on Unimas, when Lightweights Jose Felix Jr. (29-1-1, 24KOs) and Yakubu “Black Mamba” Amidu (21-6-2, 19KOs) face off. Felix Jr. is currently the #8 ranked Lightweight in the world by the IBF. His lone loss took place in a World Title challenge against Brian Vasquez (34-2, 17KOs). Amidu, who is best known for being managed by actor Vince Vaughn, maintains a 91% knockout rate in victories and has faced some of the toughest names in the Lightweight division.
Another young and undefeated prospect from the Top Rank stable, Oleksandr Gvozdyk (5-0, 4KOs) will also be making his Los Angeles debut in the supporting bout on Solo Boxeo Tecate on Unimas. Gvozdyk, originally from Kharkiv, Ukraine, won the Bronze Medal in the 2012 London Olympics. Despite turning pro only last year, Gvozdyk has already disposed of veterans Cory Cummings, Otis Griffin, and Michael Gbenga. He will take on another hardnosed veteran in Mexico’s Francisco Sierra (26-8-1, 23KOs), in an 8 round bout. At this rate, Gvozdyk may soon join fellow Ukrainian stablemate Vasyl Lomachenko as a World Champion within the first 10 bouts of his professional career.
HOLLYWOOD FIGHT NIGHT 10 will feature another World Ranked boxer as current IBF InterContinental Champion, Murat “Iron” Gassiev (22-0, 15KOs) faces of against veteran Rodney Moore (17-9-2, 7KOs) in a Heavyweight affair. Gassiev is currently the highest ranked Cruiserweight in the World by the IBF and is also ranked #7 in the World by the WBC and #12 by the WBO. Moore is a former NABA Light Heavyweight Champion and has never been stopped despite nine professional losses.
Continuing with the international flavor of HOLLYWOOD FIGHT NIGHT 10, a duo of undefeated 3-0 prospects, Canada’s Zsolt Daranyi and Germany’s Cem Kilic, will fight in separate four round bouts. Kilic is Freddie Roach’s Middleweight protégé and will fight right up the street from Wildcard Boxing Club for the first time. Daranyi is handled by one of boxing’s premiere eyes for talent, Cameron Dunkin. Rounding out the card will be a six round Cruiserweight affair between Wildcard Boxing Club’s Israel Duffus (7-3) and Carlos Reyes (7-7-1), and a four round bout Featherweight battle between Elite Pro Boxing’s Leonardo Chavez (2-1) and Gabriel Braxton (2-10).
