On May 15th Joe DeGuardia’s Star Boxing brings boxing back to Harrah’s Resort in Atlantic City, NJ with a compelling six bout card. In the main event bout of the evening, the WBA #5, WBC #10, IBF #13 rated heavyweight in the world Kevin “Kingpin” Johnson (21-0-1, 8KO) is set to square off against 2004 Olympic Team Captain Devin Vargas (17-0, 7KO) in a ten round heavyweight contest. The winner stakes their claim as the top American heavyweight and takes one step closer to challenging for a world title.
The co-feature bout of the evening sees the Star Boxing debut of Jorge “The Truth’ Teron (22-1-1, 15KO) as he looks to avenge the only loss of his career as a pro when he takes on the always dangerous Aldo Valtierra (25-10, 13KO).
