Kinda to make Star Boxing debut this Saturday

On Saturday July 23rd, Joe DeGuardia’s Star Boxing will team up with the American Cancer Society and the Hunts Point Produce Market to present the first annual “Knock Out Cancer” Boxing benefit. The card will be headlined by highly regarded, undefeated American prospect, Joe “The Future” Hanks (16-0, 11KO’s) taking on former “Contender” participant, Alfredo Escalera Jr. (18-3-1, 12KO’s) for the vacant IBA America’s Heavyweight Title. Also scheduled on the card, is Star Boxing’s newly signed jr. welterweight prospect, Issouf Kinda (10-0, 5KO’s) as he takes on the rugged, Bryan Abraham in a six round jr. welterweight showdown. All of the proceeds from the event will be donated to the American Cancer Society.

Kinda, who originally hails from Burkina Faso in West Africa, but now calls the

Bronx his home, was last in action in May where he scored a third round TKO over Jorge Ruiz on another Star Boxing promoted card. DeGuardia was impressed with what he saw, and immediately began the process of signing Kinda. Kinda officially signed his long-term promotional contract at the press conference to announce the “Knock Out Cancer” event. DeGuardia plans to keep Kinda, who only fought three-times in 2010, and once so far in 2011, very busy and move him quickly, but first he must get by the upset-minded Abraham.

Abraham’s record, which stands at 4-6-2, 4KO’s, is deceiving. Three of his losses have come against undefeated fighters, including a decision loss to highly touted 2008 US Olympian, Sadam Ali. Both of Abraham’s draws came against undefeated fighters, and he has two knockout victories over previously undefeated fighters, Dominic DeSanto, and Scott Burrell.

“Knock Out Cancer” will take place Saturday, July 23rd at the Hunt Point Produce Market, which is located at 772 Edgewater Road, Bronx, NY 10474.
