Wright added to Coney Island card


Junior WrightBROOKLYN, NY (August 13, 2015) – Coney Island is known worldwide as a destination for varied entertainment options. Surf, sand, and sky-high roller coasters have thrilled fun seekers there for decades. It only figures then that promoter Dmitriy Salita’s boxing show August 25 at MCU Park in Brooklyn’s fun-zone, Coney Island, will feature an array of fistic talents, which are sure to offer fight fans a superb show, rivaling any carnival ride in the proximity.

Cruiserweight title challenger Junior Wright, coming off a solid showing in a world title challenge in Russia, is coming back to BK, to show off lessons learned against Rakhim Chakhkiev three months ago.

Wright is aching to get back on the winning track.

“I think I am now a better fighter because I learned a lot from this, going to another country and competing. I picked up a lot, more experience from there,” said the 13-1-1 Chicagoan, who will meet rugged Michiganer Harvey Jolly in a bout scheduled for six-rounds.

Wright, a busy technician, said he is enthused to appear for the third time on a card in NY.

“New York is great man, I just feel like this another opportunity to show I am world class,” he said.

Promoter Salita is happy to add Wright to another of his superlative Brooklyn Brawls.

“Junior Wright is an honorary New Yorker and fought his most memorable fight, against Steve Bujaj, in Brooklyn just last year. NYC fight fans are always asking about his next appearance in the city!”

Salita spoke about his latest addition to the card in 25-3-1 featherweight Alexander Miskirtchian who is scheduled to take on Cornelius Lock.

“Junior now has had the experience of fighting for a world title on the big stage and has learned a tremendous amount. He is very motivated to impress fans once again and climb back up the ladder to challenge the best in the division. A world-class fighter like Junior Wright will bring the excitement to the Brooklyn Cyclones stadium in Coney Island on August 25th!”
