BETHLEHEM, PA. (March 16, 2016) – Lightweight contender Ivan Redkach (19-1, 15 KOs) will face-off against Puerto Rico’s Luis Cruz (22-4, 16 KOs) in a 10-round headlining event on Tuesday, April 19 on Premier Boxing Champions (PBC) TOE-TO-TOE TUESDAYS on FS1 and BOXEO DE CAMPEONES on FOX Deportes from Sands Bethlehem Events Center in Bethlehem, Pa.

Televised coverage begins at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT and features a pair of exciting eight-round middleweight showdowns pitting top rising prospects and contenders. Brawling 160-pound prospect Immanuwel Aleem (15-0, 9 KOs) takes on Jonathan Cepeda (17-1, 15 KOs) while Delaware’s Kyrone Davis (10-0, 4 KOs) will face Dominican Olympian Junior Castillo (9-0, 9 KOs).

“I am really looking forward to headlining this event on April 19,” said Redkach. “I know that I have a strong opponent, but I am determined to impress the fans and show that I am ready to challenge the elite in my division. I’ve trained very hard and I’m ready to fight.”

“I plan on rejuvenating my career with this fight,” said Cruz. “This is an interesting fight and I’ve been training really hard. Redkach is a tough fighter, but it is nothing that I haven’t seen before. I want to get this big win. It’s now or never for me.”

A fight will go down at Veterans Park in Beach Haven on Saturday, Sept. 26, and everyone is welcome to watch. Boxing by the Beach, which will showcase some of the greatest talent in boxing from all over the world, is Tuckerton resident “Brutal” Brendan Barrett’s first fight back since he shattered his hand defending his Ring of Combat Heavyweight title at the Tropicana Casino Showroom in Atlantic City more than a year ago. The six-time heavyweight mixed martial arts champion and four-time submission grappling victor will go up against Satario Holdbrooks in his first boxing match after crossing over from MMA.

“It’s been almost a year and a half since I’ve been able to fight and over six years since I last stepped foot into a professional boxing ring. I feel truly blessed to be able to fight on an event that is sure to leave its mark on local history,” said Barrett, who spent some of his time retraining at the park this summer.

The event is being hosted by HITM Productions, a promotional company Barrett started in July, after he got stuck waiting for the right opportunity in boxing.

“It is an honor and a pleasure to have such great athletes competing on our first show, and we are very excited to bring boxing to Beach Haven,” he said.

Other fighters slated for the event include Dustin “The White Tiger” Fleischer, one of the top welterweight fighters in the U.S. right now, who will be taking on Ira Frank just coming off a win in his June 12 bout. Thomas “Cornflake” Lamanna, boasting a record of 17-1 with seven KO’s, will be taking on Ayi Bruce, bearer of 15 KO’s, for the middleweight fight that night. Middleweight Ian Green (6-0) is paired with K Lon Spencer of Texas (4-2) to see who emerges victor of that bout after six rounds. Four rounds of light heavyweight fighting will transpire between Chinese Olympian Meng Fanlong and Michael Mitchell, presently ranked 72nd in the U.S. O’Shanique Foster (7-0) will take on newcomer Darius Jackson for four rounds of lightweight boxing. Sidney Outlaw, also a fellow pro-MMA fighter, will be making his professional boxing debut as well, against Angel Concepcion (6-0) in the light heavyweight division. Undefeated Arturo Trujillo (6-0) will be taking on North Carolina native Alex Asbury (0-2) for four rounds of middleweight fighting.

“Young General” Ian Green looks to move to 7-0 on September 26, 2015 in Beach Haven, NJ at Boxing by the Beach by H.I.T.M. Promotions. Doors open at 4:30PM and fights start at 5:30PM. Click here for more details. http://www.hitmpromotions.com
