FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Philadelphia, PA (May 17, 2017) – Lightweight Carlos Rosario is ready for his headlining appearance this Friday night when he takes on Josh Davis in a bout scheduled for eight-rounds at the 2300 Arena in South Philadelphia.
The show is promoted by King’s Promotions. (1st bout 6:30 PM; Doors 6 PM)
Rosario of Pennsauken, New Jersey, has a record of 7-1 with four knockouts, and has won seven consecutive since dropping his pro debut. 
“Everything is going great.  I am just winding down, losing the last couple of pounds , and I will be ready on Friday, said Rosario on Tuesday night.
In Davis, he is fighting his toughest opponent, but 26 year-old Rosario is ready for for whatever the Washington, DC native will bring.
“Even though he has an impressive record (10-1, 4 KO’s), I do not know a lot about him.  His record is actually better then mine.  I am fighting at home but I still feel that I am the underdog.  I think this is a fight that could go all eight-rounds, and I am looking forward to that as I have never gone that distance.”
Rosario, who has won seven consecutive fights has been slowly moving up the card and now finds himself in the main event.
“That has not hit me yet that I am the main event fighter.  I just continue to fight and my team has done a good job of finding me the right fights.  I am gaining more confidence with each fight and my opponents continue to get better.”
Rosario has been in the gym since age 10 but did not start to competing until he was 18.  He then embarked on a 28 fight amateur career.
The full-time corrections officer is taking his boxing career one step at a time, but he is seeing improvement in every fight.
“As long as I keep winning, and stay consistent, I can maybe fight for a minor title this year.”
“I hope the fans come out.  I have never been in a bad fight.  Sometimes it’s not about winning.  I want the fans to say that I am one of their favorite fighters to watch.”

David Gonzales looking for statement win over Teah this Friday night in Chester, Pa

Plus undefeated Tyrone Crawley Jr. to appear on 9-bout card at Harrahs Philadelphia
For Immediate Release
Chester, PA (September 28, 2016)–Undefeated junior welterweight David “TwoGunz” Gonzales is looking for a big effort this Friday night when he takes on the tested Samuel Teah in an eight-round bout that will headline a 9-fight card at Harrahs Philadelphia.
The show is promoted by King;s Promotions.
Gonzales of Philadelphia has a record of 8-0-2 with two knockouts.  The 26 year-old ha won three in a row since stepping up his level of competition.
“Training ha been great.  I been on weight since five days before the fight.  I feel strong, and I am ready for a big win on Friday,” said Gonzalez.
This won’t be the first time that Gonzales and  Teah have shared a ring, so Gonzales has a little scouting report on his opponent.
“I sparred with him once and he is a pretty skillful guy.  He is from Philly, so I know he has heart but he is not on my level.  The sparring session was about 6 rounds.  I haven’t watched any tape on him, but I know the only way he can win is if he is in better shape and I know that’s not possible because I am great shape.  I am also naturally bigger, so I think that will be a factor.”
This is another “Philly vs. Philly” matchup, which is always special to the fans in attendance.
“We are both from Philly.  People look forward to seeing these matchups and especially this early in our careers, but I am the one that will have my hands raised.”
Teah, who has had a couple fights and wins on national television, so Gonzales knows a win will put him on the map in the junior welterweight division.
“He is known in Philly and he had a big win over (previously undefeated” O’Shaquie Foster.  I will show that I am on that level and this will start getting me higher profile fights.”
