BROOKLYN BRAWL TO HEAT UP CONEY ISLAND WITH BOXING AT THE BEACH
Pro Boxing Returns to MCU Park For The First Time Since 2001

BROOKLYN, NY (July 15, 2015) – World-renowned boxer Dmitriy Salita and his Brooklyn Brawl series will heat up Coney Island on Tuesday, Aug. 25, as the former IBF, WBA and NABA International Junior Welterweight Champion brings “Boxing At The Beach” back to MCU Park, the home of baseball’s Brooklyn Cyclones. Salita Promotions will open a year’s worth of events with a professional fight card at the New York Mets’ minor league venue on that evening, giving New York City and area sports fans a chance to catch rising stars and contenders as they rumble at the boardwalk.

Gates open at 6 p.m. with the first bout scheduled for 7 p.m. as “Brooklyn Brawl: Boxing At The Beach” brings pro bouts to the Coney Island boardwalk for the first time in 14 years. The last professional boxing event at the Brooklyn Cyclones’ venue occurred on July 8, 2001, when Hector Camacho Jr. defeated Jesse James Leija via a controversial, referee-halted TKO.

“I am very excited to bring the Brooklyn Brawl series to the home of the Brooklyn Cyclones in Coney Island,” said Salita, who fought out of Flatbush, Brooklyn, as a professional. “Coney Island is a world-famous gathering place and a hub in New York City, where people come to get rest and relaxation and fabulous entertainment. August 25 will be a historic event that will feature world-class boxing in a festive atmosphere. I encourage everyone to ‘punch up’ their summer plans and join us!”

Tickets begin as low as $15 and are available starting on Thursday, July 16 at 11 a.m., by calling 718-507-TIXX (718-507-8499). Tickets can be purchased online at BrooklynCyclones.com.

Headlining the Aug. 25 Brooklyn Brawl in Coney Island will be Alex Miskartachian (25-3-1), a world-rated former world title challenger and two-time European champion from Armenia. Miskartachian will take on former NABO champion Cornelius Lock (22-7-2) in a main event featherweight clash. Lock, who was born in Detroit, Mich., now calls Flatbush, Brooklyn, his home.

Undefeated lightweight contender Dimash Niyazov, of Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn, will face his sternest test as a pro, when he meets former New York State champion and Jamaica, Queens, native Ariel Duran, in a Kings vs. Queens County crossroads NYC clash.

Junior welterweight prospect Treysean "Trigger" Wiggins (6-1, 5 KOs) has signed on for the Brooklyn Brawl fight card, itching to count another knockout among his burgeoning total, and add to his reputation as the fighting pride of Newburgh, N.Y. Wiggins will face the toughest test of his career as he takes on former top ten world-rated junior welterweight contender and always upset minded Francisco “El Gato” Figueroa (20-7) of The Bronx.

By way of Kazakhstan, and now making his home in Brooklyn, Bakhtiyar Eubov (6-0, 6 KOs) looks to impress his new hometown fans with another knockout performance. The amateur standout is now living and training out of Marine Park, and each of his six wins have come via stoppage.

Fighting out of Jamaica, Queens, Giorgi Gelashvili, a junior welterweight making his professional debut, is a former three-time Georgian national champion looking forward to impressing at the famed summertime hot-spot, with several more fighters and matchups to be added to the Aug. 25 card at the beach.

Broadcast information will be announced at a later date. Interested corporate partners should contact Mark Fratto at mfratto@linacremedia.com.
