Mike Marrone and Raymond Biggs Jr return to battle
Duva Boxing is proud to
announce that three of Duva Boxing's newest signups and
brightest young prospects who will now be fighting under their
promotional banner will be putting their impressive skills on
display again soon, as heavyweights Brian Minto, and Mike
Marrone, as well as welterweight Raymond Biggs Jr. are all
scheduled for upcoming appearances.
Legendary trainer/manager Lou Duva says he is very impressed
with the trio. "These three kids are the kind of up-and-coming
fighters that make me excited again to be in the game. I'm
seeing the kinds of things in the gym that I've seen from all
our legendary champions. Dedication. Toughness. And a level of
natural talent you are either born with or you aren't. And
only a very few select boxers are."
Thankful for Sho-Box Success

Duva wishes to thank everyone involved with making Thursday’s
Duva Boxing debut “Sho-Box – The Next Generation” broadcast a
rousing success. “Hard Knocks at the Hard Rock,” at the
Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Florida, was
co-promoted by Warrior’s Boxing and featured power-punching
future heavyweight star Samuel “The Nigerian Nightmare” Peter
in the main event and all-action welterweight prospect Juan
Urango in the co-feature.
“Samuel Peter passed the toughest test of his career with
flying colors by pitching a virtual shutout,” said Duva of his
fighter’s unanimous 10-round decision victory. “I am very
pleased he proved so dominant against a very good and very
tough Jovo Pudar. He’s only 23 years old and is still
learning, but we expect him to be ready for any heavyweight in
the world in the near future."
