STAR BOXING BACK IN ATLANTIC CITY WITH TREMENDOUS NEW JERSEY DOUBLE HEADER
PRIDE OF GREECE “MIGHTY” MIKE ARNAOUTIS RETURNS TO HIS HOMETOWN FOR A TOUGH TEN ROUNDER,
ALSO HEAVYWEIGHT KEVIN “KINGPIN” JOHNSON, RATED NUMBER 7 IN THE WORLD LOOKS TO POSITION
HIMSELF FOR A TITLE SHOT
On September 5th at the Bally’s Hotel and Casino in Atlantic City, NJ Joe DeGuardia’s Star Boxing returns with yet another
sensational night of boxing. Mike Arnaoutis and Kevin Johnson, two of Star’s top fighters will be showcasing their goods in
a special double feature.
“I’m really looking forward to this card,” said CEO of Star Boxing Joe DeGuardia. “Anytime you have either of these guys
fighting as the main event on a show its going to be an exciting night of boxing. Now that we have both Kevin and Mike on
the same card together, I can only begin to imagine what Bally’s is going to be like that night. We feel that both Mike and
Kevin are ready to challenge for major world titles and we expect them to both look spectacular and put on a great show
come September 5th,” stated DeGuardia.
Ken Condon, Sports and Entertainment Consultant for Bally’s Atlantic City states that once again, “Bally’s Atlantic City will
host an incredible night of boxing action on September 5. Both main events feature, not only local fighters, but local
fighters that excite fans and leave everything they have in the ring. Arnaoutis has really connected with the Atlantic City
fans, and we’re excited to get a look at Kevin Johnson during his rise to top of the heavyweight division. This is shaping up
to be must see fight card.”
In the first co-main event “The Pride of Greece” world rated “Mighty” Mike Arnaoutis (19-2-2, 9KO’s) of Atlantic City, NJ
takes on power punching Nasser Athumani (20-6, 16KO’s) of South Egg Harbor, NJ in a tough ten round jr. welterweight
Arnaoutis has become a fan favorite here in the U.S., particularly in his adopted hometown of Atlantic City, for his non-stop,
always coming forward aggressive style. Bally’s will be packed with Arnaoutis’s large Greek fan base, waving their flags,
and chanting their home countries favorite battle cries throughout the night.
In the second co-main event of the evening the WBA #7 rated heavyweight in the world, and top American heavyweight
hopeful Kevin “Kingpin” Johnson (19-0-1, 6KO’s) of Asbury Park, NJ takes on former WBA heavyweight champ Bruce "The
Atlantic City Express" Seldon (38-6, 34KO’s) of Atlantic City, NJ. Johnson has continuously climbed the ranks since he first
turned pro back in 2003 and a win over Seldon should position him for a title shot. This fight is very important for Johnson
not only for what a victory does for his career, but also it is a chance to take care of a personal vendetta against Seldon.
Seldon has been calling out Johnson for some time now and Johnson has seemingly had enough. Upon receiving a direct
letter from Seldon, Johnson called DeGuardia and told his promoter to set the fight up so that he can once and for all send
the veteran Seldon into retirement.
A complete list of the undercard will be announced shortly. Tickets are priced at $90 and $60 and can be purchased by
