Ivan Baranchyk joins promoter Tony Holden’s Four State franchise
Holden Productions has announced the signing of unbeaten junior welterweight sensation Ivan Baranchyk to a promotional agreement. As a member of Holden Productions’ stable, Baranchyk joins the Four State Franchise.
Holden Productions will promote the 23-year-old along with DiBella Entertainment and Fight Promotions Inc. The Four State Franchise, which regularly fights in front of sold out crowds packed with energized fans, also includes Trey Lippe-Morrison, Kenzie Witt-Morrison, Jarrett Rouse, Dillon Cook and Jesse Cook.
Living and fighting out of Brooklyn, NY by way of Russia, Baranchyk is 11-0 with 10 wins by knockout. Baranchyk’s last two bouts were held in Tulsa at the Buffalo Run Casino, where he knocked out previously unbeaten foes Nicholas Givhan and Eliseo Cruz. The all-action brawler, who scored a highlight reel one punch knockout against Givhan, became an instant hit at the Buffalo Run and a fighter Tony Holden had his eye on.
Holden said of Baranchyk, “The fans here love him and I’ve had Ivan on my radar since his first appearance here. I’m glad we were able to get this done and I believe he has what it takes to go a very long way in this sport. The trio of DiBella Entertainment, Fight Promotions Inc. and Holden Productions will do our part to get him there.”
Baranchyk, who scored all of his stoppages within four rounds, has enjoyed his experiences fighting at the Buffalo Run.
“I like the fans a lot and I like the atmosphere,” Baranchyk said of Holden Productions’ shows in Tulsa. Tony is a great promoter. Along with DiBella Entertainment and Fight Promotions Inc., Tony will help me become a world champ.”
Baranchyk’s official Holden Productions debut takes place Friday, September 23 when he headlines Shobox: The New Generation at the Buffalo Run.
Details on Baranchyk’s opponent and other bouts on the card will be announced in the coming weeks.
