On Thursday night December 15th, longtime boxing guy Rich Komissar will be launching a brand new boxing series dubbed “Tommy Gallagher’s Winners Have Scars.” The first event will take place at Schuetzen Park in North Bergen, New Jersey and it will feature undefeated Cruiserweight Santander Silgado, Puerto Rican featherweight Rafael Vazquez, local hometown guy Danny MacDermott who is always in great fights and IBO Mediterranean Lightweight Champion Floriano Pagliara.
“When I came up with the concept, I had to instill the services of Tommy Gallagher, a lifelong friend and in many ways my personal mentor”, said Komissar, who has trained, managed and promoted fighters and boxing shows since as far back as the early 1960’s. “Tommy Gallagher may be best known as being part of the The Contender reality show but he is much more than that” say Komissar whose late father Stanley was one of the original founders of the legendary Starret City Boxing Club in Brooklyn NY.
“Tommy has relationships all over the world in boxing and entertainment and has worked with practically every major boxing promoter on the planet. I am open to working with any promoter and especially the smaller local guys right here in the area. We look forward to putting on shows that will help these youngsters reach their dreams.
“We have formed a strategic alliance with Rob Diaz and the people at Havoc Boxing. They have done four sensational shows in Brooklyn and we will look forward helping each other grow even further.”
“We already have some things in the works for a great show in January in New York City and we plan to be very active throughout 2012 with this series”
