Line-up for 50 Cent’s ‘Big Apple Boxing’ event

Unbeaten junior lightweight prospects Joel Diaz, Jr. (13-0, 11 KOs) and Wanzell Ellison (9-0-1, 5 KOs) headline “Big Apple Boxing,” presented by 50 Cent’s SMS Promotions, on Friday night, December 20 at Resorts World Casino NYC in Jamaica, Queens, New York.

“This is going to be an exciting night in boxing,” promoter Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson said. “The fighters on this card are highly motivated and I’m looking forward to watching their talent unfold in the ring. We’ll also have special performances from Prodigy of Mobb Deep, Tory Ave and Tony Yayo.  You won’t want to miss this one.”

The 21-year-old Diaz, fighting out of Palmdale, California, will be fighting in his third scheduled 10-round bout having stopped Guillermo Sanchez and Emmanuel Lucero, respectively, in the second and fifth rounds.  Diaz has defeated one other unbeaten opponent, Guy Robb (7-0), who Diaz finished-off in the seventh round of their 2012 fight on ShoBox.
