South Side Promotions, in association with American Fighting Organization, DiBella Entertainment and Mark Vaz Boxing present the first professional boxing card for 2011 in the State of Massachusetts on April 16th at the Massachusetts National Guard Armory in Dorchester.
Headlining the Pro-Am show will be super featherweight prospect Ryan “The Polish Prince” Kielczewski (9-0, 2 KOs) facing tough journeyman Robert DaLuz of nearby Providence, RI, currently living in Jacksonville, FL. Hailing from just over the bridge in Quincy, MA, Kielczewski is coming off an exciting six-round decision win over Minneapolis’ Wilshaun Boxley in February. DaLuz, who’s faced numerous prospects and champs in his 48-fight career, looks to present the biggest challenge in Kielczewski’s career. Promoted by DiBella Entertainment, The Polish Prince is excited to be fighting ten minutes from his home, not having boxed in his native Massachusetts since last June’s unanimous decision win over the well-regarded Juan Nazarrio in Worcester, MA.
In the co-feature, co-promoter Chris Traietti will return to the ring after a 16 month absence against Cincinnati, Ohio’s tough Randy Campbell. The 8-2 light heavyweight spent the first 8 months of 2010 doing his military service, and is currently looking to make a final run at his pro career while learning the promotional business.
Quincy police officer Timothy Kaes, after an extended amateur career, will step into the ring for the first time as a professional facing Providence, RI amateur star Alex Amparo, also debuting as a pro, in a light-heavyweight four rounder.
Derek Silveira, the undefeated jr middleweight prospect from Byfield, MA will put his 3-0 record on the line against upset-minded Rameil Shelton of Providence. Trained by Roland Estrada, one of the most respected trainers in New England, Shelton is looking to derail Silveira’s fast-rolling train.
Amateur standout Dan Powers of New Hampshire will look to remain unbeaten against Weymouth’s Fred Mandrachia in a four-round featherweight matchup.
Five amateur bouts will be showcased including Boston Police Officer and Golden Gloves Champ Billy Traft.
Tickets are available at the door, and are priced $50 ringside, $35 general seating, and $25 standing room. For information, call 617 645 3177
