Broadway Boxing Returns

On Wednesday, October 6th, Lou Dibella's "Broadway Boxing" series returns to the famed BB Kings Blues Club in New York's Times Square with an action-packed card.

In the main event, Brooklyn's Gabriel "Tito" Bracero (11-0, 1 KO) faces Terry Buterbaugh (6-3-1, 3 KO's) in an eight-round, junior welterweight showdown. Bracero, 29, scored his first career knockout, a fourth-round TKO, against Raymond Betancourt in his last outing. This fight will mark Bracero's 5th appearance at BB Kings.

22-year-old Mark "TNT" Tucker (14-0, 7 KO's) makes his first visit to the Big Apple in a scheduled eight-round, light heavyweight clash against an opponent to be determined. Tucker, a Maryland native, seeks his first knockout victory in his last six fights.

After suffering his first professional loss (SD 6) against Kelvin Price, Tor Hamer (11-1, 8 KO's), 27, looks to rebound against Terrell Nelson (8-10, 5 KO's), 39, in a heavyweight match-up. Hamer, a former National Golden Gloves Champion, possesses tremendous power in both hands, and owns 5 first-round knockouts.

Light middleweight Steve Martinez (5-0, 5 KO's) seeks his 6th consecutive knockout win against an opponent to be determined in a four-rounder. Martinez, 20, is managed by New York Giants running back Brandon Jacobs, and is a native of Bronx, New York. In July, Martinez scored a scintillating second-round stoppage versus Jason Thompson in Atlantic City, New Jersey. Martinez won the 2008 National Golden Gloves Championship as a welterweight.

Undefeated cruiserweight Stivens Bujaj (1-0, 1 KO) looks to acquire his 2nd professional win in as many fights in a scheduled four-rounder.

Also, 35-year-old Sonya Lamonakis (1-0, 1 KO), a school teacher during the day, makes her Broadway Boxing debut in a four-round heavyweight bout.
