There are quite a few options available for fans to watch tomorrow night's highly anticipated pay-per-view light middleweight championship fight featuring Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Canelo Alvarez being held at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Joe DeGuardia's Star Boxing is offering one such option that includes VIP seats at The Paramount in Huntington, New York for "Rockin' Fights 10", a night of live boxing that headlines undefeated junior welterweight Chris Algieri, followed by the live telecast of Mayweather-Alvarez in "The One".
Tickets for PARTY IN A BOX are being sold for $150 per person, including VIP seats, food (appetizers and sandwiches), cocktail service and showing of the Mayweather pay-per-view fight.
Before the big event airs live from Las Vegas, Algieri (17-0, 7 KO's) will be fighting in front of his hometown fans at the Paramount for the third time this year, clashing with tough Nicaraguan veteran Wilfredo "EL Zurdo" Acuna (14-12, 11 KO's). Algieri kicked off the year in style, dominating Jose Peralta over 10 rounds on an NBC Sports Network telecast in February for a unanimous decision win in a career best performance. Most recently, Algieri swept a 10-round unanimous decision over former world title challenger Mike Arnaoutis in July. Acuna is known for providing tough tests to many undefeated prospects across the country.
Now competing in the middleweight and jr middleweight divisions, former world champion Joshua Clottey (36-4-0, 22 KO's) returns to the ring after an absence of almost two years to face Dashon "Fly Boy" Johnson (14-12-3, 5 KO's) on the undercard of "Rockin' Fights 10". A native of Accra, Ghana, now residing in Bronx, New York, Clottey is best known in the area for his sensational war with Miguel Cotto on June 13, 2009 at Madison Square Garden, losing a very close split decision. In March of 2010, Clottey challenged boxing legend Manny Pacquiao for the WBO Junior Welterweight title in front of over 50,000 fans at Cowboys Stadium in Dallas, Texas. Johnson has faced numerous notable names over his five-year career including Glen Tapia, Jermell Charlo and most recently Paul Mendez, dropping a hotly contested unanimous decision on July 26 in Redwood, California.
Heavyweights will also see action as hard hitting prospect Constantin Bejenaru (3-0-1, 2 KO's) of Catskill, New York will battle Buffalo, New York, native Excell Holmes (2-1-1, 1 KO) over four scheduled rounds. Renowned trainer Kevin Rooney says Bejenaru is the most explosive heavyweight he has trained since Mike Tyson. Opening the show, popular Huntington, New York junior middleweight prospect Wendy Toussaint returns to The Paramount, facing off against pro debuting Cory Boyd of Babylon, New York in a scheduled four-rounder. Toussaint made his successful pro debut, pitching a four round shutout over On'rey Towns on July 20.
Doors open at 7:00 pm with the first bout starting at 7:30 pm.
