SCHENECTADY’S OWN UNDEFEATED SUPER WELTRWEIGHT JAHYAE “GOLDEN CHILD” BROWN COMES HOME
IRISH DUO TONY “SUPERFLY” BROWNE & “THE SILENT ASSASIN” RYAN O’ROURKE SET TO MAKE USA DEBUT
Schenectady, NY (April 7, 2022) – With fight night just two days away, Italian WBC CA Champion, SIMONE “TYSON” FEDERICI (Lazio, Italy 18-2-1 8KO’s) and Ukrainian NABA Gold Champion, LYUBOMYR “THE DEMOLITION MAN” PINCHUK (Pittsburgh, PA 14-2-1 8KO’S) have put the work in the gym and are prepared to go toe to toe Saturday night.
The undercard features budding prospects from both the USA and abroad. In a light heavyweight scrap, Dublin, Ireland’s TONY “SUPERFLY” BROWNE (4-1) is prepared to make his USA debut against the always tough LEANDRO “APOLLO” SILVA (Sao Paulo, Brazil, 3-5 2KO’s) over 8-rounds of action. Browne was a standout amateur in Ireland and looks to make a statement in his US debut Saturday night.
Coming home for the first time in his undefeated career, Schenectady High School graduate, and undefeated super welterweight JAHYAE “GOLDEN CHILD” BROWN (10-0 8KO’s) takes a step up against Brazilian veteran GILBERTO PEREIRA dos SANTOS (16-12 12KO’s). The heavy handed Brown will step in with the heavy handed Santos in what is scheduled for 6 rounds, but could very well come to an emphatic finish well before.
Undefeated 22-year old super lightweight RYAN “THE SILENT ASSASIN” O’ROURKE (7-0 1KO) makes his much anticipated USA debut after ripping off all seven wins over the last two years since his pro debut in 2020. Opposing O’Rourke is fellow European, hailing from Lyon, France, FAYCAL REZKALLAH (6-1-1 1KO) over 6 rounds.
Finally, opening the action in a 4-round women’s lightweight bout is Hogansburg, New York’s own, MICHELLE COOK (1-3-2) against LIZ TUANI (1-6) of SeaTac, Washington.
Doors to the Rivers Casino Event Center will open at 7PM and the action will start 8PM. Tickets to the event are available HERE.
The Rivers Casino fight card is presented by Joe DeGuardia’s Star Boxing on April 9, 2022 at Rivers Casino & Resort in Schenectady, NY.
