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.”

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Philadelphia, PA. (March 8, 2017) – Super Lightweight prospect David Gonzales is looking to rebound from his 1st professional setback when he takes on Juan Rodriguez in the 6-round co-feature bout this Saturday night at the SugarHouse Casino in Philadelphia.
The show is promoted by King’s Promotions.
In the 8-round main event, Tyrone Brunson (23-6-2, 22 KO’s) takes on Brandon Quarles (18-3-1, 9 Ko’s) in a middleweight bout.
Gonzales, 27 years old originally from Philadelphia, but now calls San Antonio home, and is coming off a stunning 1st round stoppage defeat to Samuel Teah on November 11th.
“Training is going well in Texas.  I come down here as I have a job selling solar panels.  The sparring is great.  There are a lot of tough Mexican fighters down here.  They come hard and are always in shape,” Said Gonzales. 
Gonzales now 8-1-2 with two knockouts, has gone back to the drawing board, and is working hard on his craft.
“I have been working on getting better on defense, boxing, just my balance and skills.”
In Rodriguez, he is facing a competitor that has a record of 6-6-1 with five knockouts, and has a knockout victory over previously undefeated Philly area fighter Nathaniel Rivas.
“I don’t know much other then he is tough, and comes to fight.  He isn’t the most skilled fighter, but I hear he hits hard.  But you can never underestimate any fighter.”
Gonzales views the Teah fight as just a slight setback and a learning experience, and he doesn’t feel that he was knocked too far off track of realizing his goals.
“I just want to get back in the win column.  Then maybe two more wins and fight an undefeated fighter, so I can move up the rankings.  I am a confident fighter.  I just got caught with a punch behind the head against Teah, and that’s boxing.”
“I just want people to know that I am back, and ready for a big win this Saturday.  I just want to keep getting better and become a world champion.”

Victor Vasquez (6-2, 2 KO’s) of Yonkers, NY fights Mike Fowler (5-6, 2 KO’s) of Milwaukee, WI in a super lightweight bout.
