NEW YORK (November 4, 2011) - After a successful debut on October 22nd, the second installment of Star Boxing's Boxeo Azteca will be LIVE this Saturday night on Azteca America.
The main event features undefeated Heavyweight Mariusz Wach as he takes on Jason Gavern in a twelve round bout for the WBC Intercontinental Championship.
In the co-feature, undefeated Middleweight Patrick Majewski will battle Jose Miguel Torres for the NABF & NABO Middleweight titles.
The telecast, which will originate from the Mohegan Sun, will be shown LIVE across the United States beginning at 10pm (EST).
Wach of Krakow, Poland (now residing in North Bergen, New Jersey) has a perfect record of 25-0 with thirteen knockouts, has prodigious size as he stands almost 6'8", and has quality wins over Jonathan Haggler and former Mike Tyson conqueror Kevin McBride.
He will be facing the toughest battle of his career when he takes on Gavern, who is known for his toughness and grit.
Gavern, 21-8-4 with ten knockouts is no stranger to taking fights on short notice, and fighting on the road all over the world. Gavern is coming off a 1st round knockout win over Bobby O'Bannon, a bout which took place on August 20, 2011, and his most notable wins are over Darnell Wilson and Manuel Quezada. Gavern also was impressive in a hard draw against rated heavyweight Jonathon Banks, resulting in a draw on May 29th of 2010, a fight many felt Gavern won.
Majewski (17-0, 11 KO's) is similar to Wach as he is originally from Poland, but has settled in Atlantic City and is an exciting brawler in the middleweight division. Majewski has stepped up the competition with each bout. In his last bout, he captured the NABO title with a ten-round unanimous decision over Marcus Upshaw.
Torres (22-5, 19 KO's) is a tough Colombian, who has fought top competition such as Yudel Jhonson and Joe Greene, and will be looking to throw his name into the middleweight mix. He is coming off a decision win over Jose Antonio Rodriguez on September 30th.
The show is promoted by CES Boxing, Global Boxing and Joe DeGuardia's Star Boxing, and will air on Azteca America beginning at 10pm. (Saturday 11/5)
Additional upcoming Star Boxing/Boxeo Azteca shows on Azteca America are: November 19th, December 3rd and December 10th.
