Tommy Rainone Will Face Carl McNickles on November 13


Tommy_Rainone_Avaitor_2011_against_MedinaGreg Cohen Promotions (GCP) has announced several of the opponents for the Thursday, November 13, night of world-class professional boxing, produced by David Schuster’s Winner Take All Productions and sponsored by Westbury Jeep Chrysler Dodge Long Island, at the luxurious The Space at Westbury, in Westbury, New York.

In the night’s main event, Plainview, New York’s Tommy “The Razor” Rainone (21-5-1, 4 KOs) will face Chicago’s Carl “The Assassin” McNickles (8-5, 6 KOs) in a 10-round battle for the USBO Welterweight title.

A popular “all heart” warrior who doubles as an actor outside the ring, Rainone is riding a five-fight unbeaten streak, but McNickles will provide him a good test, as he has been in with several world-ranked contenders.

In the main supporting bout, Kildare, Ireland’s “Hurricane” Dennis Hogan (19-0-1, 7 KOs) will face Venezuela’s Jose “Bam Bam” Rodriguez-Berrio (21-6, 13 KOs) in a junior middleweight eight-rounder. The buzz around Hogan is that he is a star in the making and the fight against Rodriguez-Berrio will be his first outside his adopted homeland of Australia.

In a very special six-round, non-title women’s super-fight between reigning champions, Brooklyn’s WBO World Female Lightweight Champion, Amanda “The Real Deal” Serrano (21-1-1, 16 KOs), will take on Cleveland’s WIBA World Featherweight champion Carla Torres (4-2).

On the undercard, undefeated heavyweight KO artist Jarrell “Big Baby” Miller (9-0-1, 9 KOs) will face Rodricka Ray (5-7-1, 2 KOs) in a heavyweight six-rounder; Eduardo Martinez (3-0, 1 KO) of Illinois will go against Millville, New Jersey’s Joshua Reyes (5-3, 2 KOs) in a featherweight six; Rich “Brazil” Neves (7-1-1, 3 KOs) of New York will take on Philadelphia’s Maurice Amaro (2-7, 1 KO) in a middleweight four; Westbury’s own Dave Meloni (0-1,) will battle Felip Nazario (0-4) of the Bronx in a super featherweight four; Philadelphia lightweight Samuel Teah (4-1, 2 KOs) will go four against Brooklyn’s Ian James (3-8-1, 1 KO). and junior middleweight Peter Dobson (1-0) will face Anton Williamson (1-1) of New Rochelle, New York in a four-rounder.

An opponent is still being sought for Chicago welterweight Kenneth Sims Jr (3-0, 2 KOs).
