Joe DeGuardia’s Star Boxing presents an all- star card featuring two of Star Boxing’s more popular fighters in Co-Main Events. “Mighty” Mike Arnaoutis (17-2, 9 KO’s) the Pride of Greece, collides with Dominican power puncher Harrison Cuello (15-5, 11 KO’s) in a 140-pound contest for the vacant USBA Junior Welterweight Title. As an added attraction, fan favorite Vinny Maddalone (28-4, 20KO’s) once again steps through the ropes squaring off against tough Ohio veteran Jeff Yeoman (21-8, 8 KO’s) in an 8 round Heavyweight battle. All the action takes place on Thursday, March 6th at the Grand Ballroom of The Manhattan Center in New York City, NY..
“I’m thrilled to be able to have two of our fan favorite fighters on the same show” stated Joe DeGuardia, CEO of Star Boxing. “This card will be a signature Star Boxing event, as both fighters have large and passionate fan bases. Ethnic pride always makes for exciting fights. Since Arnaoutis wants another World Title fight and Maddalone leaves everything in the ring each time he fights, we expect a FANtastic night of boxing on March 6th” DeGuardia added.
“Mighty” Mike looks to bounce back into the win column after two straight tough defeats one of which was a highly controversial split decision loss to Ricardo Torres for the then vacant WBO Jr. Welterweight crown on November 18, 2006. Arnaoutis dropped Torres in the seventh round of that fight and to almost all ringside viewers looked to capture the WBO title, but was denied due to very questionable scoring.
In his last bout on April 20,2007, “Mighty Mike” took on the challenge of highly regarded Kendall Holt, a bout for the number 1 ranking in the WBO and the right to fight a rematch with Ricardo Torres. Arnaoutis trained and fought without long time trainer Bill Johnson in his corner and the results were evident as Mike was unable to figure out the elusive style of Holt, losing a unanimous 12 round decision. Now reunited with Johnson, “Mighty Mike” looks to add the USBA belt as he takes on the hungry Dominican puncher, Harrison Cuello.
Harrison Cuello is a very dangerous opponent because he brings 1 punch knockout power into the ring with him. On June 20th, 2007, Cuello stepped into the ring with top prospect Edgar Santana, who was riding a 5 year, 16 fight win streak into the fight. One devastating punch from Cuello in the 3rd round ended all that. Cuello is a very exciting fighter who cannot be taken lightly.
The fight fans in attendance at the Manhattan Center on the night of March 6th will also be treated to a heavyweight battle with the exciting Vinny Maddalone in the co-main event of the evening. Having been in the ring with the legendary Evander Holyfield and cherished by fans and boxing experts for his wars with Brian Minto, Maddalone is certain to give the fans what they have come to expect, excitement, blood and guts. This will be one show you do not want to miss!
