QUEENS, NY (May 4, 2013)—TONIGHT!!! at the Resorts World Casino in Queens, New Legend Boxing, Old World Boxing and W.O.N Promotions presents an eight bout that will be headlined by undefeated Bantamweight Juan Dominguez takes on Manuel de los Reyes Herrera in the ten round main event.


After the eight bout card is complete, fans will be able to watch the Floyd Mayweather – Robert Guerrero fight on six large screens that will be erected throughout the fight venue.

The exciting eight round co-feature will pit undefeated Jr. Middleweight Frank Galarza (9-0-1, 5 KO’s) of Brooklyn, NY battling Jason Thompson of New York.

Galarza has become one of the most popular prospects on the east coast. That was evident in his last outing where he had a loud cheering section when he stopped Guillermo Ibarra on March 9th at the Barclays Center as part of the Bernard Hopkins – Tavoris Cloud undercard.

“I am feeling pretty and ready”, said Galarza.

Despite sporting a record of 5-6-2 with four knockouts, Galarza knows that Thompson is no easy customer.

“Jason Thompson is tough. He seems to have power so I know I need to be cautious of that”

Galarza knows that his handlers and fan base will help him as he moves forward.

“I know I have support behind me. After I get past Thompson, I will keep moving forward and hopefully get on some more big cards. My promoters New Legend Boxing, Old World Boxing and Old World Boxing plus my manager A.J. Galante have a good plan and that’s to stay busy”

Galante who also manages former world title challenger Delvin Rodriguez sees a similar course for Galarza.

“This fight is a great fight for Frank. He is building a fan base”, said Galante

“Frank has been up here in Danbury, Connecticut sparring with Delvin and they share a trainer in former Heavyweight contender Fernely Feliz”

Galante expects a solid learning experience for Galarza.

“Thompson has been around and it’s good to get in with a tough veteran. Frank looks great and he is just scratching the surface. We expect a decisive win and move forward. Frank will be active and we have a good team assembled”

Besides the two co-features, six other big bouts will be on the card:

Joe Smith Jr. (11-1, 11 KO’s) of Long Island takes on Hamid Abdul-Mateen (3-3-2) of Brooklyn in an eight round Light Heavyweight bout.

In a six round Super Featherweight bout, Angel Cruz (5-1, 2 KO’s) of Brooklyn battles Ray Velez (2-3, 1 KO) of Troy, NY

Bryant Cruz (3-0, 3 KO’s) of Port Chester, NY fights Michael Doyle (1-1) of Prichar, AL in a four round Super Featherweight bout

Allan Phelan (1-2, 1 KO) of New York via Ireland will box Jimmy Small (0-3) of Cincinnati, OH in a four round Featherweight bout

In a four round Super Bantamweight bout, Ryan Ramaya (1-0, 1 KO) of Queens, NY takes on Jonathan Gonzalez (0-2) of Vega Alta, Puerto Rico

Rounding out the card will see Shawn Cameron (4-0, 3 KO’s) of Brooklyn taking on Gustavo Medina (1-3) of Eloy, AZ in a four round Middleweight bout

*Following the show, fight fans will be treated to the Mayweather vs. Guerrero fight live on SHOWTIME, scheduled to be broadcast on six big screen televisions.
