Giovanni Lorenzo to battle at MSG on March 16-Prelude to a John Duddy showdown

BLOOMFIELD, NJ (March 12, 2007) – Undefeated middleweight contender Giovanni Lorenzo (22-0, 14 KO’s) understands how important March 16 is to his career plans. The 26-year-old Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic native dreams of fighting on HBO against the division’s elite, so it is only fitting that he appear on the same “Erin Go Brawl” Madison Square Garden-hosted fight card headlined by fan favorite “Irish” John Duddy.


“This fight is of great importance because I will be showcased on PPV and in front of the Madison Square Garden fans,” said Lorenzo. “I haven’t had this level of TV exposure before in my career. These are the type of fights that will propel me to the next level of big fights. It will allow me to introduce myself to the boxing world in dramatic fashion and will also help me move up in the rankings”.
Should Lorenzo emerge victorious on March 16, he says he would like “to fight John Duddy on HBO”. Lorenzo’s management says that the Duddy camp has agreed to the fight, but that if it doesn’t happen for some reason, “Gio wants to fight any of the top middleweights from Jermaine Taylor on down”.
Lorenzo, who has knocked out four of his last five opponents and nine of his last 10, admits that he doesn’t know much about ‘Doctor’ Robert Kamya other than that Kamya won the WBC Intercontinental Championship by defeating Alex Bunema. “I don’t watch tapes because I want to be ready for any and all styles a fighter may bring”. Lorenzo’s trainer Pastor Ralph Farrait has watched tapes of Kamya and describes him “as a good boxer with good movement who is in shape and who throws a lot of punches and tries to outwork his opponents like he did against Bunema”.
Irish Ropes Promotions will promote the March 16 “Erin Go Brawl” fight card.
