On Saturday, March 4th, Joe DeGuardia’s Star Boxing begins its 2023 journey with the first professional boxing card at White Eagle Hall in Jersey City, New Jersey.
White Eagle Hall is a venue in the restored historic building in the quaint neighborhood of Downtown Jersey City, a vintage village.
Originally built in 1910 as a community center, in 2013 it underwent a comprehensive multi-million-dollar historic restoration and reopened in April of 2017.
The intimate venue, adorned with two unique stained-glass skylights and gothic era design with wood and fixtures taken from the nearby Saint Boniface Church, will be filled with boxing aficionados and notable guests mingling as part of a unique boxing experience.
Star Boxing CEO JOE DEGUARDIA had this to say, “We are excited to bring professional boxing to White Eagle Hall in Jersey City for the first time. We plan on having not just quality boxing, but an experience. It is an intimate and unique setting, and we are thrilled to be working with Harris Blitzer Sports and Entertainment (HBSE) and expect our joint venture will bring an experience to Jersey City that fans will find unforgettable.”
The unique fight night experience is slated to have a thrilling fight card with serious talent. Recently, Star Boxing announced the signing of undefeated super bantamweight prospect RAJON “PICASSO” CHANCE (7-0-1 5KO’s).
Chance will be making his Star Boxing debut in his native New Jersey on March 4th, at White Eagle Hall. Chance was a standout amateur with a record of 135-15 winning three national championships, the first at the age of 11.
Turning pro in 2020, the now 22-year-old undefeated professional ABF Champion, is a prospect on the rise who is looking to make a statement in the 122 lb. division – starting on March 4th.
Marching his way into the St. Patrick’s holiday, undefeated super lightweight, 2021 Irish Prospect of the Year “THE SILENT ASSASSIN” RYAN O’ROURKE(Dublin, Ireland 9-0 2KO’s) will make the trip across the Atlantic Ocean to kickstart his 2023. At just 23 years old, O’Rourke is growing into his lengthy frame, evidenced by his first-round demolition of Andreas Maier at Star Boxing’s Shore Wars in November. O’Rourke will fight in an 8-round super lightweight bout.
Undefeated super welterweight rising prospect, JAHYAE “GOLDEN CHILD” BROWN (Schenectady, NY, 12-0 9KO’s) will look to parlay two wins in 2022 into a thrilling first fight in 2023. Brown is an exciting young fighter with a high boxing IQ. 2023 is lined up to be a major year for the Schenectady product with major leap in the world ratings in his sights. Brown will be featured in an 8-round super welterweight bout.
