Saturday night, Sept. 21, New Legend along with Old World and W.O.N Promotions will be putting on another addition of their International Fight Night series. The exciting night of boxing will be held at the Resorts World Casino in Queens, NY and will feature two New York State title fights.
In the main event, Leon Moore (30-2) will take on Rafael Vazquez (8-1) for a vacant USA New York State super bantamweight title as well as a WBA Fedelatin super bantamweight title. Moore, who is from Guyana, is making his return to the U.S. since 2011 and will be looking to continue his winning streak in order to move up in the world rankings.
On the other hand, Vazquez is looking to get back in the win column as he is coming off an upset loss to Jhovany Collado (4-7-2) by way of split decision. Consequently, Vazquez will be considered the "challenger" in the match up and will have to put on an impressive performance to pull off the victory.
In the co- feature, Frank Galarza (10-0-2) will look to keep intact his undefeated record against Rich Nieves (6-0-1) who will also be looking to do the same. The match up is for a vacant New York State light middleweight title and is a testament to the attitude of both fighters to take on any challenger as they are both entering the fight with their undefeated records.
Consequently, New York fight fans should expect to see an exciting night of boxing as both men will surely be looking to leave it all in the ring. It is no secret that in the sport of boxing one loss can be a huge setback for one's career, which leaves a substantial risk factor in this fight.
Furthermore, fight fans will have the opportunity to view the return of Gary Stark Jr. (23-3) after a two year layoff. It will be interesting to see if Stark has any ring rust as he will be taking on Jonathan Alcantara (6-10-2). Alcantara, who is coming off three consecutive losses, has surely been put in place as a tune for Stark in order to depict where Stark is at this point in his career.
In the end, the New York boxing community should expect to take part in a thrilling night of boxing that includes some meaningful match ups. New Legend, Old World and W.O.N Promotions have done a great job with their series of fight nights at the Resorts World Casino and fight fans should expect nothing less this time around. Only time will tell, but with two title fights as co-main events, fight fans should expect what they seek from the sport, blood and drama.
