Star Boxing has a thrilling card in place for its 37th edition of “Rockin’ Fights” at The Paramount, set to take place on Saturday, November 23. The main event is a much-anticipated grudge rematch as the WBC FECARBOX and ABO Intercontinental champion, DANNY “EL GALLO” GONZALEZ (18-2-1 7KO’s) puts his titles on the line against Huntington’s hometown hero, JOHNNY “HITMAN” HERNANDEZ (10-4 1KO). The exciting main event is supported by a stellar international co-feature and a fantastic undercard.

The 10-round co-feature bout spotlights two international rising cruiserweights, Italian, SIMONE “TYSON” FEDERICI (15-2-1 7KO’S) against Albanian, STIVENS “SUPERMAN” BUJAJ (17-2-1 11KO’s) for the WBC Continental America’s Title. Federici, a former Italian National champion and IBF Mediterranean cruiserweight champion will be making his second appearance at The Paramount. Bujaj, who is no stranger to title fights, is a former WBC USNBC and USA New York State Cruiserweight champion. The winner will see a large increase in their cruiserweight world rankings as both fighters know a win will catapult them into a big fight in 2020.

The undercard features six undefeated fighters, in what is bound to kick off the show with flair. In a battle of the undefeated, 2013 New York Golden Gloves Champion and now undefeated professional, ALEX “EL TORO” VARGAS (4-0 1KO)will take on Title Boxing National Champion, and undefeated professional, DASHAUN “TOOSWEET” JOHNS (2-0 1KO). Both Vargas and Johns have fought all of their professional bouts at The Paramount. This special attraction is a scheduled 6-round welterweight bout.

We are pleased to add an international flair to “Rockin’ Fights” with Simone Federici and Stivens Bujaj fighting for the WBC Continental America’s title. Alex Vargas always brings a great crowd and will be in a real tough matchup with fellow, undefeated New York fighter, Dashaun Johns, who is also a fan favorite and ticket-seller. Overall, I foresee this as being a great card that you will not want to miss.”
