Heavyweight Savarese Joins Ring Promotions

NEW YORK – Former world heavyweight contender Lou Savarese has become a partner in New York City-based Ring Promotions, joining former New York boxing commissioners, Bob Duffy and Tony Mazzarella.

Savarese was a two-time New York State Golden Gloves super heavyweight champion, winning the novice division in 1985 and defeating Alex Stewart the following year in the finals. In 1987, Lou was scheduled to fight future world champion Riddick Bowe in the finals, but Savarese was injured and unable to box.

As a pro, Savarese won his first 36 fights, 46 of 53 (38 KOs) during his 18-year career, which ended this past June with a 10-round loss by decision to Evander Holyfield. Lou’s 36th straight win was a seventh-round TKO of highly-touted Buster Mathis, Jr. (21-1) for the USBA heavyweight title in 1996. “Big Lou” then dropped a 12-round decision to George Foreman for the WBU crown, bounced back with a sensational fist-round knockout of Buster Douglas for the IBA belt, and rose from the canvas to knockoff previously unbeaten Lance "Mount" Whitaker.

“Lou Savarese is one of he most honest, respected boxers to ever come out of New York City,” Duffy said. “He’s a former world-class fighter with integrity who has always been good for boxing. We’re very happy that Lou’s now part of Ring Promotions. Boxing has been good to Lou and he wants to see the sport grow and make things better for everybody.”

Ring Promotions and Gotham Boxing, will co-promote “Holiday Hits” on December 13 at the Roseland Ballroom in Manhattan, showcasing some of the Big Apple’s best young fighters including 3-time New York Golden Gloves champion and WBC rated No. 18 Bronx lightweight Jorge “The Truth” Teron (18-0-1, 11 KOs), in his first scheduled 10-round fight; Brooklyn middleweight Peter “Kid Chocolate” Quillin (15-0, 12 KOs), New York State lightweight champion Freddy Soto (9-3-2, 5 KOs), also fighting out of the Bronx, and Newburgh heavyweight Nagy Aguilera (4-0, 2 KOs), 2-time New York Golden Gloves champion.

Salmon Pulls Out, Toribio To Face Lopez

This Friday night’s SOLO BOXEO card, LATIN THUNDER, received an upgrade in the main event as David “THE DESTROYER” Lopez of Nogales, Mexico will now be taking on Dominican spoiler David Toribio in a ten round middleweight bout at Cicero Stadium, it was announced Wednesday evening by Dominic Pesoli, President of 8 Count Productions, HOME OF THE BEST IN CHICAGO BOXING.

Tickets for LATIN THUNDER are available in advance by calling the

8 Count Productions offices at 312-226-5800. Cicero Stadium is located at 1909 S. Laramie, just minutes from the Eisenhower and Stevenson Expressways. Doors for this event will open at 5:30pm with the first bell at 6:30pm.

Toribio, coming off a SOLO BOXEO televised first round knockout of undefeated prospect Juan Camilo Novoa this past August 3rd in Arcadia, Florida has once again agreed to step in on short notice to face Lopez. Darryl Salmon, originally scheduled to face Lopez pulled out due to illness.

In September 2006, Toribio, 14-9 (8KO’s), now living in Miami, went to the famed Michael’s 8th Avenue venue in Baltimore, Maryland and won an eight round decision over undefeated hometown favorite Ishmael Arvin.

Said Pesoli, “Darryl Salmon pulled out this week due to illness, but our matchmaker Jerry Alfano did a great job lining up Toribio to put together a terrific main event. I've seen Lopez fight numerous times and saw Toribio’s recent first round knockout of Novoa and three of his other fights. They’re both real warriors who should put on a great battle for our fans.

With former world champion Jhonny Gonzalez in the co-main event and a great undercard with Fonfara, Rita Figueroa and newcomers Ivan Popoca and Henry Coyle the fight fans in Chicago are in a for a great night of boxing.”

Lopez, 32-12 (21KO’s), has won eight in a row, including five by knockout.

The open to the public weigh-in for LATIN THUNDER will take place at Mariscos El Veneno, 6651 S. Pulaski at 7pm on Thursday, November 15th.
