One of the New England area’s top prospects will get the opportunity to perform in front of his local fans on Saturday, April 25th, when unbeaten Danny O’Connor steps into the ring on the undercard of the highly anticipated super middleweight championship fight between Jermain Taylor and Carl Froch at the MGM Grand Theater at MGM at Foxwoods in Mashantucket, Connecticut. “April 25th is going to be a great night for fight fans, and we credit DiBella Entertainment for making it happen,” said Leon Margules, Executive Director of Seminole Warriors Boxing, O’Connor’s promoter. “Lou (DiBella) asked us if Danny was available for this card and we jumped at the chance to get him back in the ring. Danny is the future of this sport, and it will be a treat for his local fans to see him at this stage of his career.”
2008 United States Olympic alternate Danny O’Connor (5-0, 2 KOs) has wasted no time establishing himself as one of the most promising junior welterweight prospects in the United States. A southpaw with ring savvy beyond his 23 years, the Framingham native has fought three times thus far in 2009, looking more impressive with each outing. In his last bout, on March 14th, he needed only 86 seconds to dispatch Charles Wade.
The fight card is being promoted by DiBella Entertainment in association with Hennessy Sports. Tickets are on sale now and priced at $200, $100, $75 and $50. Tickets are available at www.mgmatfoxwoods.com , your local Ticketmaster, and the MGM Grand Box Office 866-646-0609.
