Next Friday night, Ronson Frank’s Uprising Promotions will return to the Five Star Banquet Hall in Long Island City, with Alicia “The Empress” Napoleon (6-0, 5 KOs) headlining another loaded card. In addition to a great night of boxing, Uprising Promotions will also honor the late legend Muhammad Ali with their show entitled “Rumble Young Man Rumble.”
“We are looking forward to returning to the Five Star Banquet Hall next Friday night,” said Ronson Frank, Uprising Promotions President. “We have an entertaining show lined up with plenty of compelling action fights. Alicia Napoleon always puts on a great performance and packs the house, and the bouts supporting that fight are being matched well with a nice combination of intrigue and competitiveness. As is the case every time Uprising Promotions puts on a show, it will be another great night of boxing next Friday at the Five Star Banquet Hall.”
The main event of the evening will feature the return of Napoleon (6-0, 5 KOs) against 20-bout veteran Kita Watkins. The last time Napoleon competed on an Uprising Promotions show was in January, where she decisioned Szilvia Szabados in an action-packed bout that earned her the WBC Silver Female Super Welterweight Title. Currently the top-ranked female super welterweight in the country and number four in the world, Napoleon is known for bringing an entourage of supporters and putting on an entertaining fight.
Fresh off another pair of knockout victories after stopping Glenn Thomas on the last Uprising Promotions show in April, heavyweight Romarick Ngoula (7-0, 7 KOs) will meet battletested veteran Jon Bolden of New York. Also slated to participate in lightweight action is rising prospect Jude Franklin (3-0, 3 KOs), a popular New York fighter who has dealt with each of his three professional bouts inside the distance.
Queens middleweight Villi Bello (4-1-1, 1 KO) is set to meet undefeated Newark resident Anthony Jones (4-0-1, 1 KO) on July 22nd, competing on his fourth overall Uprising Promotions card. Also returning to action next Friday night will be undefeated New York welterweight Maxito Sainvil (3-0-1, 1 KO), who will be fighting on his third Uprising Promotions docket. Sainvil will be facing gritty opposition in 12-bout veteran Ray Velez, who has never fought an opponent with more than one loss throughout his professional career.
Additional bouts planned for the July 22nd show include an encounter between two young featherweights in Ariel Lopez and Wuesi Johnson, while a women’s contest between undefeated lightweight Betha Aracil (2-0, 2 KOs) and converted mixed martial artist Gabby Holloway is additionally on the schedule. Undefeated super bantamweight Shawn Simpson (1-0, 1 KO) is also slated for action against Juan Munoz, while light heavyweights Julian Frederic and Damon Lewis will clash as well.
This card will also feature a super featherweight attraction between Romain Tomas and Grashino Yancy, as well as former New York Golden Gloves winner Jose De La Rosa and Ecuador Olympian Luis Perozo competing in separate bouts.
