Undefeated all-action welterweight prospect Tyrone ‘Pretty Boy’ James, (5-0, 3 KO’s), of Elmont, NY faces veteran Daniel Sostre, (13-14-1, 5 KO’s), in a six round clash on Saturday, November 11 from Long Island’s NYCB LIVE, home of the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum on the non-televised portion of the HBO World Championship Boxing tripleheader, it was announced by Joe DeGuardia, CEO and President of Star Boxing.
The 26-year-old James, whose father played professional football, has quickly impressed local fight fans since his pro debut in November 2015, including his last four victories at famed venue, The Paramount in Huntington, New York.
“I’m very excited to be fighting so close to home and on such a huge card. As soon as Joe DeGuardia called to offer me the opportunity I jumped at it,” said James. “I was at the first boxing card in July at the Coliseum and knew I wanted to fight there. It’s a great place for my family and friends to see me in a bigger venue.”
“Sostre has fought a lot of tough fighters and has more experience than me but I’ll be ready on November 11 for victory,” continued James who works in the Nassau County Sanitation Department.
Stated DeGuardia, “This is an excellent opportunity and a true test for Tyrone and we’re thrilled to announce his addition to this sensational card. He has a very crowd-pleasing style and his last four fights at The Paramount have shown that local boxing fans want to see more of him. We look forward to another great performance from him on November 11.”
Sostre, a native of Highland, NY, has fought a long list of top contenders and prospects over his twelve-year career including Wale Omotoso, Mikael Zewski, Raymond Serrano, Gabriel Bracero, Ray Robinson and Mykal Fox.
