Star Boxing's Saturday night (August 27th) show at the Tropicanca Casino and Resort in Atlantic City (NJ) has been postponed due to an intense and massive hurricane.
The new date will be October 22, 2011, also at the beautiful Tropicana Showroom in the Tropicana Casino and Resort in Atlantic City.
The hurricane (Irene), a historic storm with winds and gusting rain reaching up to 100 MPH, has forced numerous cities on the East Coast to evacuate, and Atlantic City has issued a mandatory evacuation order and a city wide shutdown.
Star Boxing, was to have featured, heavyweight fan favorite, Vinny Maddalone (33-7, 24KO's), Atlantic City's own welterweight contender, Shamone "The Truth" Alvarez (21-4, 12KO's) in separate bouts.
Super Middleweight knockout artist, undefeated Jason "El Monstruo" Escalera (11-0, 10KO's) of Union, N.J. was also set to take another step in his promising career.
