Star Boxing's popular heavyweight contender Vinny Maddalone of Flushing, Queens, returned to the ring on Wednesday night, May 2nd, in a memorable battle against Chris Koval in the headliner of the Sold Out VIP Boxing III event at Russo's On The Bay in Howard Beach, New York.

Trading bombs from the opening bell, Maddalone drilled the Youngstown, Ohio native Koval to the canvas with a massive right hand midway into the opening round. After rising from the canvas Koval fought his way back into the fight stunning Maddalone with a thunderous left hook. However at the ten-second signal, Maddalone landed another hard right hand bringing the packed house to their feet.

The fast and furious pace continued over the next two rounds with each fighters throwing caution to the wind as power shots were vigorously traded.
