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.

On November 6th at the Prudential Center in Newark, N.J., Zab "Super" Judah (39-6, 27 KO's) will battle Lucas Matthysse (27-0, 25 KO's). The fight will be televised on HBO's "Boxing After Dark" series.

Previously, Judah was scheduled to face Michael Clark on October 2nd. 

Judah stated, "Matthysse is a good young fighter with good speed and power. I look forward to making this an exciting fight for all my fans. GOD SPEED - Here we go!"

"We are absolutely thrilled to be bringing HBO to Prudential Center for the first time," said Kathy Duva, Main Events CEO. "When the opportunity arose, everyone involved worked very hard to reschedule Zab's next appearance in Newark to November 6th to coincide with HBO's schedule. Judah-Matthysse will be a spectacular event, and as always, the Prudential Center fans will be treated to another great night of boxing."

Bill Halkias, Super Judah Promotions Vice President, added, "Matthysse will make for an exciting fight. He is a young fighter that possesses decent hand speed and plenty of power. He has never faced an opponent like Zab, who has the fastest hands in boxing, crushing power and a level of experience that only comes from fighting the cream of the crop. This is the type of match-up boxing needs. We have great fans and only want to give them the best possible fights we can offer."

Tickets for Judah-Matthysse will go on sale later this month.
