Roc Nation Sports light heavyweight boxer Meng Fanlong (13-0, 8 KOs) will make his highly-anticipated broadcast debut on DAZN on Saturday, November 24 at Le Casino de Monte Carlo in Monaco. The event will be promoted by Matchroom Boxing.
Fanlong – the reigning IBF Intercontinental Light Heavyweight champion – will take on England’s Frank Buglioni (23-3-1, 16 KO’s) in a 10 round IBF Intercontinental title match, which will be his most high-profile fight to date.
“It’s a great opportunity for me to fight here in Monaco,” said Fanlong. “My training camp went great. I respect Buglioni and I trained my hardest and I will fight as so. I will put on a good show Saturday night. Boxers prove themselves in the ring. Everyone is going to remember me after this fight.”
With this bout, Fanlong has his sights set on propelling his ascension toward the top of the light heavyweight ranks. This fight will mark Fanlong’s first fight since July 20, when he defeated Chris Eppley via first-round TKO at the WinnaVegas Casino & Resort in Sloan, Iowa.
“I want to thank Eddie Hearn of Matchroom and DAZN for this great opportunity for Meng Fanlong,” said Roc Nation Sports boxing promoter Dino Duva. “I’ve been working with Fanlong for the past 8 years, he has great natural skills and I have always believed he has the potential to be a world champion. He’s been one of the real sleepers in the light heavyweight division, but if he performs against Frank Buglioni the way I believe he can, he won’t be any longer after this match. A win here against a top world class boxer like Buglioni will put him right in the title mix in one of the best divisions in boxing.”
Tickets for November 24 start at €400 and will be available to purchase via www.montecarlolive.com, emailing email@example.com.

Boston Boxing Promotions organized three events at the Castleton in Windham in the calendar year 2018.

The Castleton also provided a good setting for up-and-coming local talent to showcase their skills, including North Andover’s “Irish” Tommy O’Connel’ (1-0-1) and Springfield’s Anthony Velazquez (4-0, 4 KO’s). Revere’s Kimberly Wabik and Springfield’s Liz Humphries took part in the first women’s fight in Boston Boxing Promotions history at the Castleton this past Wednesday. On that same night, Haverhill’s Brendon Simonds (3-0, 3 KO’s) returned for his first fight in over a decade to score a hard-earned second-round KO over Vermont’s Andre Belcarris.
