Next Wednesday, October 24, Broadway Boxingreturns to the Roseland Ballroom in NYC with undefeated light heavyweight Seanie Monaghan (15-0, 10KO’s) defending his WBC Continental Americas light heavyweight title against Rayco “War” Saunders (22-17-2, 9KO’s) in the feature bout of the evening.


In the co-feature, Brooklyn’s Gabriel “Tito” Bracero (19-1, 3KO’s) squares off against hard-hitting Eric Cruz (13-10, 13KO’s) in an eight-round junior welterweight matchup.  The card is promoted by DiBella Entertainment (DBE) and sponsored by Manfredi Auto Group,, and Everlast.  SNY will broadcast the event tape-delayed.


DBE undefeated junior middleweight, Brooklyn’s own Delen “Sniper” Parsley (8-0, 2KO’s) will also see action on the card as he takes on Ibahiem King (10-7, 4KO’s) in a six-round matchup.  This will be Parsley’s third fight in 2012.  In March, Parsley faced off against fellow undefeated prospect Boyd Melson. In what was one of the most exciting, action-packed battles in Broadway Boxing’s eight-year history with each combatant hitting the canvas, Parsley unanimously won the eight-round decision.


Popular lightweight Floriano “L’Italiano” Pagliara (13-4-2, 7KO’s) returns to the ring as he is set to take on Jeremy McLaurin (9-4, 5KO’s) in an eight-round lightweight matchup. Born and raised in Italy, but now living and training in Brooklyn, Pagliara has quickly become one of the more popular attractions on the New York boxing scene for his fan-friendly style.  Pagliara hasn’t lost a bout since dropping an eight-round decision to world-rated contender Diego Magdaleno (23-0) almost three years ago.


The newest member of the DBE roster, 2010 NY Golden Gloves Champion Travis Peterkin (4-0, 3KO’s) will also appear on the card, as he is scheduled to take on fellow Brooklyn-native Hamid Abdul Mateen (3-2-2) in a six-round light heavyweight showdown.


Rounding out the card will be a four-round female bantamweight matchup between Brooklyn’s Heather Hardy (1-0) and Philadelphia’s Unique Harris (pro debut).  Hardy made her pro debut on the last Broadway Boxing card in August, winning a hard-fought unanimous decision over Mikayla Nebel.  Hardy suffered a knockdown in the first, before righting the ship and going toe-to-toe for the remainder of the bout, eking out a close decision that left the fans at the Roseland Ballroom applauding with a standing ovation.
