All due respect to the New Yorkers on Lou DiBella's Dec. 19 Roseland Ballroom card, guys like Queens' Will Rosinsky and Brooklyners Tito Bracero, Travis Peterkin, Zach Ochoa, Jarrell Miller and Mikkel Lespierre. But the one guy on that card who I'm perhaps most excited about, long-term, is Californian Ivan Redkach. That guy has heavy hands, dangerous hands, hands that separate men from their senses and leave them face-down on a canvas in the blink of an eye. In short, he has special power. The Ukrainian Redkach (12-0, 11 KOs) scored a TKO1 win over Tibor Brosch on Oct. 24 at Roseland on the last DiBella card.
He meets 11-8-2 Edward Valdez, a Dominican-born New Yorker, on this card.
The DBE-promoted Broadway Boxing card is being held as a benefit for Hurricane Sandy victims with all of the proceeds from the show to be donated to the American Red Cross. A silent auction will be held throughout the evening, with Lou DiBella donating items from his own extensive personal collection.
