Dignity Promotions, in association with Peru Box Promotions and ATV Peru, proudly announced the inception of their highly anticipated “Los Campeones del Manana” series, with their first event now set for Saturday, October 16th in Union City, New Jersey.
The main event, which will be televised live in Peru, is a 10 round lightweight matchup between the flashy and widely popular Jonathan Maicelo (13-0, 8 KO’s) and heavy handed Colombian Oscar Cuero (13-2, 10 KO’s).
Both promising fighters will be making their U.S. boxing debuts and are looking to impress, as well as broaden their fan base, outside their native homelands.
The two televised co-feature bouts will highlight the talents of decorated amateur champions Carlos Zambrano, now 11-0 (5 KO’s) since leaving his Chincha, Peru home to punch for pay, and power punching jr. welterweight Juan Zegarra (5-0, 5 KO’s) of Lima, Peru.
Both undefeated “Campeones del Manana” Zambrano and Zegarra now reside in nearby North Bergen, NJ.
Several local fighters are also slated to see action: Paterson Cruiserweight Elvin Sanchez (3-1, 3 KO’s), will be looking to rebound from a knockout loss in his last fight.
Newark Lt. Heavyweight Angel Concepcion (2-0) fights to keep his record unblemished, Crowd pleasing super bantamweight Raul Lopez (4-1, 3 KO’s) fighting out of the Bronx will give scrappy Giraldo Rosas (0-1) a chance at revenge.
Lopez earned a hard-fought unanimous decision win over the debuting Union City fighter this past July in Vineland, NJ. Union City’s own Juan “The Beast” Rodriguez (3-0, 3KO’s) will get the chance to shine in front of his hometown fans as the highly touted granite-handed welterweight fights in his own backyard for the first time.
All four under card bouts will be four-rounders.
“We are thrilled to be able to give this opportunity to these deserving local fighters,” stated Dignity Promotions president Mike Indri, “That is the concept and idea behind the “Los Campeones del Manana” series.
