This is old school boxing, local fighters from the New York area stepping in the ring with each other. We have a fan-friendly main event with real local interest when Karperis and Scott Burrell battle for the NY Jr. Welter title. My matchmaker, Ron Katz, promises these 5 exciting match-ups will be ‘Paramount Punches in Bunches’, which is what our fans have become accustomed to at the Paramount.
