Michael Moore Gets Televised Fight for First Time Vs. Mark DeLuca

Unheralded Cleveland fighter Michael Moore is getting his first televised match after eight years of fighting when he faces up to Mark DeLuca in Marina Bay Sportsplex in Quincy, MA on March 31.

The bout will be aired on Golden Boy Boxing on ESPN.

In eight years, Moore has amassed a record of 15 wins with 7 KOs and one loss. The undefeated DeLuca, meanwhile, has 12 knockouts in 20 professional wins.

“I’m really excited that Murphy’s Boxing, Golden Boy Promotions and ESPN got together again to host a fight in Boston,” he said. “The amazing boxing fan base in Boston that I’m lucky to have the support of deserves a big night like this.”

Fighting as co-headliner is comebacking fighter Jason Quigley (13-0, 10 KOs) who will face Puerto Rican Daniel Rosario (11-3, 10 KOs) in an eight-round bout. The 26-year-old Irishman was sidelined for about a year after breaking his hand in the decision win over Glen Tapia in March last year.

“I’m ready to light up Boston,” Quigley said. “It’s will be amazing to fight again, but it will be even more special because I’ll be on the east coast with all my Irish fans. This is going to be special, and I will put on a great show.”

It’s going to be a busy night as lightweight Ray Moylette (5-0, 3 KOs) will slug it out Matt Doherty (7-3-1, 4 KOs) as part of the undercard. Damon Allen Jr. (14-0-1, 5 KOs) will fight Alex Del Bosque (13-4, 9 KOs) for eight rounds as they try to make a name in the 135-pound division.

Mike Ohan Jr. (5-0, 3 KOs) will also fight Anthony Everett (1-7), whose professional career didn’t get off to a good start, in the welterweight division.

Olympic bronze medalist Brazilian Yamaguchi Falcao (14-0, 7 KOs) will also be featured in the card although his middleweight opponent was not yet named.
