Hype and brash talk have become a part of most boxing promotions in recent years, but for May 30th’s HBO Boxing After Dark doubleheader at the Hard Rock Live in Hollywood, Florida, none of that is necessary when Andre Berto defends his welterweight title against junior welterweight champion Juan Urango, and junior middleweight knockout artists Alfredo Angulo and Kermit Cintron meet in the center of the ring. ”When Lou DiBella and I discussed this event, the first thing we thought of was that this card goes back to the early days of Boxing After Dark and what the series was designed to do,” said Leon Margules, Executive Director of Seminole Warriors Boxing. “We’ve got four hungry fighters, four action fighters, and only two can leave the Hard Rock with a victory. These guys are all going to leave it all in the ring to get the win, but the real winners that night are going to be the fans. I haven’t been this excited about a single event in a long time.”
Margules has good reason to be excited, considering that the Ferocious Four of Berto, Urango, Angulo, and Cintron possess a combined record of 90-3-2 with 74 KOs. That’s an amazing knockout percentage of over 82%, almost ensuring that on May 30th, somebody’s going to be hitting the canvas.
Berto vs Urango, a 12 round bout for the WBC welterweight championship of the world, is presented by DiBella Entertainment and Seminole Warriors Boxing and will be televised live on HBO Boxing After Dark beginning at 9:45 pm ET / 6:45pm PT. In the televised co-feature, junior middleweights Alfredo Angulo and Kermit Cintron will slug it out.
