Lamar Russ and Tor Hamer On Broadway Boxing May 15th


New York, NY (5/8/13) – Next Wednesday, May 15, DiBella Entertainment returns to BB King Blues Club in NYC for the latest edition of its Broadway Boxing series with a thrilling eight-bout card headlined by WBA and WBC #8-rated middleweight contender “Irish” Andy Lee (29-2, 20KO’s) taking on Darryl Cunningham (28-4, 11KO’s) in a 10-round middleweight contest.

Also featured on the card will be DBE’s undefeated middleweight prospects Lamar “The Boxing Que” Russ (13-0, 7KO’s) as he takes on the always-dangerous Russell “Spiderman” Jordan (15-9, 10KO’s) and Delen “The Sniper” Parsley (10-0, 3KO’s) as he squares off against once-beaten Louis Rose (6-1, 2KO’s).  Both bouts are scheduled for eight rounds.

Looking to get back into the win column will be 2012 Prizefighter Tournament Heavyweight champion Tor Hamer (19-2, 12KO’s) as he takes on Houston’s Maurenzo Smith (11-5-2, 8KO’s) in a six-round heavyweight showdown.


Also seeing action will be one of the most promising young up-and-comers on the DBE roster, NY Golden Glove Champion Louis Cruz (2-0, 2KO’s).  The Bronx-native Cruz will take on Puerto Rico’s Michael Carreras (0-2) in a four-round lightweight matchup.


Making his much-anticipated pro debut will be the newest member of the DBE roster, Puerto Rico’s highly regarded amateur Angel Suarez.  Suarez is set to take on fellow Puerto Rican Eliezer Agosto (1-2, 1KO) in a four-round featherweight contest.

Suarez had a stellar amateur career, which included a 243-65 record.  He was a 106lb. and 119lb. junior metro regional champion as well as a 126lb. junior national champion.  He also won gold at both the Roman Cup and KITO tournament and was a bronze medalist at the 2011 Pan-American Games.

Looking to improve to a perfect 3-0 thus far in 2013 will be New York City’s hard-hitting Neuky Santalesis (4-0, 3KO’s), as he takes on Aaron Chavez (3-2-1, 1KO) in a four-round junior lightweight matchup.  Santalesis was in action on the DBE-promoted card back in January at BB King’s, where he scored a sensational one punch second-round knockout over Juan Guerrero.  Santalesis followed up that performance with another impressive performance, blowing away Denis Madriz in just 46 seconds on DBE’s Broadway Boxing card in February.

Rounding out the card will be Brooklyn’s pro-debuting cruiserweight Jay Rodriguez as he takes on Andre Ward (1-1-2, 1KO) in a four-round matchup.
