May 10, 2011 by VegasNews.com
Golden Boy Promotions and Primm Valley Casino Resorts will host an exciting evening of hard hitting fights to be featured on SHOWTIME’s ShoBox: The New Generation on May 13 at Buffalo Bill’s Star of the Desert Arena.
The action-packed night of unbeaten stars will feature two of ESPN.com’s top prospects to watch for 2011, Sharif “The Lion” Bogere and Seth “Mayhem” Mitchell.
The main event will feature Las Vegas prospect Sharif Bogere (19-0, 12 KO’s) taking on Hollywood’s “Sugar” Raymundo Beltran Jr. (24-4, 16 KO’s) in a 10-round battle for the vacant NABO lightweight title. Uganda-born Bogere is a five-time African champion that has been on the fast track to a world title. Los Mochis, Mexico native Beltran Jr. is a veteran of the sport with more than 11 years of experience and currently holds the USBA lightweight title.
Also featured will be Seth “Mayhem” Mitchell (21-0-1, 15 KO’s) taking on Nicaraguan native Evans “The Sandman” Quinn (20-5-1, 18 KO’s) in a 10-round heavyweight battle. Mitchell has captivated fans since 2008 when the former star linebacker for Michigan State University traded in the pads for gloves and began his boxing career. Possessing concussive punching power with both hands, Quinn is a dangerous fighter with a 90% knockout rate. Given the punching power of both heavyweights this figures to be a fight that will keep fans on their feet.
The event, which is presented by Golden Boy Promotions and sponsored by Corona and DeWalt Tools, will take place on May 13 in the Star of the Desert Arena inside Buffalo Bill’s Resort & Casino. Tickets are $20 for general admission and $50 for floor seating and can be purchased here or by calling 1.800.FUN.STOP (386.7867). Doors open at 5:30 p.m. PT and the first bout will begin at 6:30 p.m. PT. and the ShoBox: The New Generation broadcast begins at 11:05 p.m. ET/PT.
