Melson and Boyd Headline Broadway Boxing


New York, NY (11/20/13) – On December 4, DiBella Entertainment will return to the historic BB King Blues Club & Grill in midtown Manhattan for another edition of its popular Broadway Boxing series. 


Fighting in separate eight-round bouts on the card will be fast-rising undefeated junior featherweight Luis Rosa (14-0, 6KO’s) and New York’s fan-favorite junior middleweight Boyd Melson (12-1-1, 4KO’s).  An opponent for Rosa will be announced shortly, while Melson is set to square off against Gundrick King (18-10, 11KO’s).


“2013 was one of our most successful and exciting years ever for Broadway Boxing and on December 4, we will be putting together another great night of fights with our traditional Seasons Beatings card,” said Lou DiBella. “From top to bottom, this event is going to feature a number of action-packed fights with some of our most promising young talent.”


The bout on the December 4 will be the fourth of 2013 for the Puerto Rican-native Rosa, now living and training in New Haven, CT.  With an aggressive fan-friendly style, the 22-year-old prospect has begun his ascent up the world-ratings, moving into the #30 spot of the World Boxing Council (WBC) junior featherweight rankings.  Rosa is truly one of the bright young stars on the DBE roster and will be looking to have a breakout year in 2014.


The fan-favorite Melson has gained national exposure and was even featured on HBO’s Real Sports for his involvement with Team Fight to Walk and the Just a Dollar Please organization.  Melson has helped to raise hundreds of thousands of dollars for Spinal Cord research through his effort, which includes donating his entire purse from each fight. The bout on December 4 will be Melson’s fourth at BB King since he’s turned professional and a large crowd, as always, will be on hand.


Tickets for the event are priced at $125, $100 and $75.  The $55 general admission seats are already completely sold out.  Tables are also available for purchase for this event, with VIP Tables going for $1,000 per table (5 seats at $200 per seat), Ringside Tables for $500 (5 seats at $100), and $375 tables (5 seats at $75).  Tickets are available for purchase by calling the DiBella Entertainment office at (212) 947-2577.
