FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Atlantic City, NJ (June 8, 2017)–Welterweight contender, Thomas “Cornflake” LaManna feels that he is on the brink of a breakthrough win, and he is looking to fight a big name later this Summer that will help catapult himself up the rankings, and on his way to a world title shot.
This Saturday night at The Claridge Hotel in Atlantic City, he first must get through 54-fight veteran Carlos Winston Velasquez in the eight-round main event of a card promoted by Rising Promotions.
LaManna, 22-2 with nine knockouts of Millville, New Jersey, will be looking for his 2nd consecutive win, and a win over Velasquez would set up a coveted fight with highly thought of foe.
“I am looking forward to a great fight on Saturday.  I am not taking Velasquez lightly as he is a tough veteran who has had 54 fights,” said LaManna. “After I win, I want something big.  Myself and Rising Promotions have regional title bouts in mind.  Fights with Zab Judah and Kermit Cintron have been brought up.  The ultimate goal is to get world rated, and climb up the ladder with meaningful fights that I would like to take place in Atlantic City.”
“Because I have two losses, I get calls all the time to be an opponent.  I don’t look at myself as being one.  I am one of the biggest, if not the biggest tickets seller in New Jersey, with a tremendous fan base, and myself and my Rising Promotions team would like to capitalize on that and move me along like a real promotional company is supposed to move a fighter.  Atlantic City is a great fight town, and I think that we can bring the type of bouts back to the boardwalk that made this town the mecca of boxing that it once was.  I think a fight with a big name opponent later this Summer would create great buzz in the Atlantic City boxing scene, and it would keep me moving towards my goal of being a world champion.”

Atlantic City, NJ (June 7, 2017)–Super Middleweight Gabriel Pham (8-1, 4 KO’s)  will look for his 3rd consecutive victory when he takes on veteran Edgar Perez in a bout scheduled for six-rounds that will be part of a packed undercard this Saturday night at The Claridge Hotel in Atlantic City

Since suffering his only professional blemish, the 28 year-old Pham of Atlantic City, New Jersey has stopped his two previous opponents.
Pham believes he will only get better as his trainer, Chuck Eisenbeis will be back in his corner after being absent from Pham’s last couple of bouts.
“It is good to have him back.  He taught me everything that I know,” said Pham.  “We have been working on footwork, and my jab.  I have seen the improvement everyday.  Chuck has been working with some UFC fighters and it is great to have him back.”
In Perez he is taking on a durable fighter, who has faced many top prospects, 13 undefeated fighters and a world champion in Jermall Charlo.
“He is a Puerto Rican.  I know he is tough as I am Puerto Rican as well.  He has 27 fights, so that is three-times more than I have.  He is experienced and he goes rounds for the most part.  I have seen some film where can be slick, so I have to be cautious of that.  I have been working hard, so I am confident that I will get the job done.”
With a win, Pham can see himself getting into contention for some regional title opportunities.
“A win will set me up for a step up fight.  I will discuss that with my manager after this fight.  I am happy where I am at as this will be the 3rd fight this year for me and this is by far the busiest stretch of my career.  I am looking to impress the fans and keep doubling the expectations with each fight.  This will be a top-shelf performance.  I want to stop this guy.  I don’t go in looking for it, but if I see that I have him staggered or hurt, I will try to get him out of there.”

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Atlantic City, NJ (June 6, 2017)–Popular native son, welterweight Anthony “Juice” Young will look for his 6th consecutive win when he battles hard-hitting George Sosa in the eight-round co-feature this Saturday night at The Claridge Hotel in Atlantic City.
The show is promoted by Rising Promotions.
In the main event, Thomas “Cornflake” LaManna (22-2, 9 KO’s) takes on Carlos Winston Velasquez (24-28-2, 15 KO’s) in an eight-round welterweight contest
Young of Atlantic City has a record of 16-2 with six knockouts has won five in a row was given the task of fighting Sosa on two weeks notice.  Young was training for an all-New Jersey showdown with Juan “The Beast” Rodriguez, Jr. but Rodriguez had to pull out due to an injury.
“My camp has been great.  Sosa is a late-replacement, but that really does not matter, because I was preparing for whoever,”said the 29 year-old Young.
Young knows that Sosa is a big puncher, but feels he is a different fighter outside of his home-country of the Dominican Republic.
“Sosa has 15 wins, and I know he has all of his victories by knockout.  But he was matched lightly when he fought in the Dominican Republic.  It doesn’t matter what he will bring, because I have been preparing for him like he is Floyd Mayweather.”
Young has been preparing in New Jersey under the tutelage of trainer, Raul “Chino” Rivas.  Young is in a camp that includes recent world champion Jason Sosa, top contender Tevin Farmer and lightweight contender Michael Perez among others, and Young feels that the switch of trainers, which mirrors this win streak is no coincidence.
“Chino has fixed a lot of my bad habits.  He has me working on the jab, pivoting, and working the body.  Since moving to Chino, I have improved with every fight.”
This will be the 10th appearance on the Boardwalk for Young, and he will look to his mark to 9-1 in Atlantic City (Young is 2-0 at The Claridge).
“I am privileged to fight where I was born.  I always look forward to fighting in Atlantic City, and I look forward to putting on a great show on Saturday night.”
Sosa of New Jersey has a record of 15-8 with all 15 wins coming via knockout.
