Omar Douglas takes on former world title challenger Daniel Attah in main event plus undefeated, Christopher Brooker, Earl Newman, Stephan Shaw, Adam Kownacki, Stephen Fulton, Jovontae Starks and Raynell Williams
Chester, PA (April 24, 2015)–TOMORROW NIGHT!!, April 25, boxing returns to Harrahs Philadelphia with a terrific card promoted by King’s Promotions and XFE.



In the main event, undefeated lightweight Omar Douglas will see action in an six-round bout when he now fights former world title challenger Daniel Attah (28-19-1, 11 KO’s) of Washington, D.C.

In one of the anticipated undercard bouts, undefeated lightweight Angel Ocasio (7-0-2, 2 KO’s) will take on tough veteran Justin Johnson in a bout scheduled for six rounds.

It was just over two years ago when Ocasio, considered a rising prospect in Philadelphia, was last in the ring as he stopped Esteban Rodriguez in two rounds on December 8, 2012.

“I took the time off and found the lord and got married,”said the 25 year-old Ocasio.

“It was a much needed time off.  I helped me realize that there are more important things then to just be a boxer.  I know there that there other things as boxing is just temporarily.  If boxing wasn’t here, I would still be the same guy. ”

Ocasio knows that he has a talent in the ring and after that hiatus, he didn’t find much problem getting back into the swing of things.

“The training aspect was not that difficult.  I am good with weight and the running was good.  I guess the only thing that needed time was my timing.  But i got in great work with (undefeated lightweight) Milton Santiago Jr. and it came back nicely.”

Ocasio didn’t pick an easy customer for his comeback opponent in Johnson.  Johnson’s record reads just 6-7-4 but he has wins over four undefeated prospects plus respect Philly fighter Hasan Young.

“Justin is tough.  He defeated four undefeated fighters and I am sure he prepares well.  Just by fighting a guy with that kind of record does not win fights.  He is an experienced fighter so I know it will be a good fight.”

“I look to be very active for the rest of the year.  I am looking for five total fights in 2015.  Maybe two more six-round bouts and my goal is to be fighting eight round fights by the end of the year.  I think I am about eight fights away from being one of those television fights that will get me to the top level.”

The well-spoken Ocasio is emphatic that despite his time away, he will soon be a big name in the sport.

“I am back.  I am coming for what’s mine.  The people who have been doubting me for a long time can still get on and join the team!”

“We are progressing.  We are hoping for a television spot later in the year.  I just want everyone to come out and support us on Saturday.  I will shut it down like I always do and put on a great show.”

Chester, PA (April 22, 2015)–This  Saturday night, April 25, boxing returns to Harrahs Philadelphia with a terrific card promoted by King’s Promotions and XFE.

 

In the main event, undefeated lightweight Omar Douglas will see action in an six-round bout when he takes on 70-fight veteran Jose Angel Beranza (36-32-2, 28 KO’s) of Tepito, Mexico.

 

Douglas of Wilmington, Delaware has a record of 13-0 with ten knockouts.  He turned pro on May 27, 2011 with a 3rd round disqualification victory over Eric Hall.

 

Douglas won the NABA USA Super Featherweight title with a 2nd round stoppage over Jean Javier Soto.  Douglas also has a quality win with a 8-round unanimous decision over Jesse Carradine (8-2-2).  In his last bout, Douglas scored an explosive first round stoppage over Osnel Charles on December 5, 2014 at Harrahs Philadelphia.

 

“Training camp has been great.  I started preparing for this fight as soon as the last fight was over.  I have been sparring with the best fighters in the area.  When I started my camp, I was only seven pounds over the contract weight,”said Douglas.

 

Douglas knows very little about Ortiz.

 
“I really only know that he is from Mexico and he has a pretty decent record.”

 
This will be the first time that Douglas headlines in his home region and he not about to have any of the distractions to go with that.

 
“I take it in stride.  I consider it just another day at the office.  The only difference is that I am closing the show.”

 
This being his 14th pro fight, Douglas is now rounding into a situation where he knows what he has to do to continue to get better.

 
“I have been very responsible with my defense.  I always knew I had a pro style.  It was my late trainer Lewis Lum who told me I was better suited to become a professional world champion than an Olympic gold medal winner.”

 
Douglas sees himself continuing to grow and fighting on more high profile platforms as the year progresses.

 
“I see myself on bigger cards.  I am with Al Haymon so to fight on a PBC card is a goal for the year.  By the end of the year, I should be considered a hot prospect and I should get in three or four more fights that should put my name out more.”

 

Douglas finished by saying, “On April 25, expect a show.  I will be smart and put everything together.  I train for every opponent like they are the best.  Once it all comes together it will be lights out!!”
