PhilBoxing.com




Five of the Six Bouts Feature Local Fighters & Will Be Announced by Local Team

New York, September 21, 2022. -- Heather “The Heat” Hardy versus Calista Silgado will be the main event of a six-bout card stacked with local boxers on her much anticipated return to the boxing ring on Thursday, October 13. The card, tabbed “New Beginnings,” will take place at Sony Hall, in the heart of Times Square, mid-town Manhattan, and will be streamed live beginning at 7 pm ET / 4 pm PT. To get the live stream, click > BXINGTV.com

Calling the fights from ringside will be the hosts of SiriusXM’s At The Fights - former New York State Athletic Commission Chairman Randy Gordon and Former Heavyweight World Title Contender “Gentleman” Gerry Cooney. The show will be produced and promoted by BoxingInsider, their inaugural promotion.

“What a great team, all the way around! Really, it’s an honor to have the guys call my fight,” said Heather Hardy. “They’ve been with me every step of my career, have seen me boxing in my absolute prime but also through some of my darkest days. They’ve always been so supportive but at the same time honest when it comes to my performance, and I’m really excited to hear what they think! It’s a breath of fresh air to have a commentator team who doesn’t pick a favorite. They call boxing as they see it and will walk the fans through what’s happening.”

“Heather is a true professional,” said Gordon. “She gives 1000% of herself when she steps into the ring. Gerry and I are honored to be on the mic for her return to the ring.”

“It’s great to follow fighters and put them on the air and hear their stories and then watch them fight,” said Cooney. “Heather is a very tough girl making a comeback. She’s been in the ring with the best of them. For this fight she’s gotten herself into great shape and I can’t wait to see that product on Thursday night.”

Tickets, priced from $85 for General Admission (not including applicable service charges), are available at Ticketmaster click here. General Admission tables and VIP tables are also available. Doors Open at 6 pm and First Bell is at 7:30.

Hardy-Silgado will be a six round lightweight bout. In the co-feature will be Ivan Golub, a native of the Ukraine who currently resides in Brooklyn. The remainder of the card includes Andy Dominguez of the Bronx, Lebanon native Nadim Salloum now residing in Brooklyn, Orville Crooks who hails from the Bedford-Stuyvesant area of Brooklyn and Armenian Petros Ananyan who resides in Los Angeles.

Heather Hardy (22-2, 4 KO's), Brooklyn born and raised and former World Boxing Organization Featherweight Champion, will bring "The Heat" back after 17 months of inactivity as she mounts another run at a world championship. Hardy is currently ranked #12 in the lightweight division by the Women's International Boxing Association. Heather is a graduate of John Jay College in Brooklyn, began boxing in the gym at age twenty-four and made her professional debut in 2014 at the tender age of twenty-eight. In 2013 she won the vacant UBF International super bantamweight title and in 2014 won the WBC International super bantamweight title, which she successfully defended five times. On October 27, 2018, Heather became world champion, winning the WBO featherweight title with a unanimous decision win over Shelly Vincent at Madison Square Garden. Heather lost the title the following September to Amanda Serrano in a clash of women boxing stars.

Calista Silgado (20-15, 15 KOs) from Santiago de Tolu, Colombia made her professional debut in 2012 and is an eight-time world title challenger. She also fought in a bare-knuckle fight in October 2021.

In a co-feature, Ivan Golub, a native of the Ukraine who currently resides in Brooklyn, will be putting his USBA welterweight title on the line against Toledo, Ohio’s Wesley Tucker (15-3, 9 KOs). Golub (20-1, 15 KO's), known as "The Volk," is ranked #7 in the world by the International Boxing Federation.

Fans at Sony Hall will also get a chance to see Andy Dominguez (7-0, 5 KOs) of the Bronx, a dynamic flyweight who currently holds the World Boxing Association Fedecentro title. He will go up against Ricardo Caraballo (7-1, 2 KOs). At 18 years of age, Dominguez is already 14th in the world in the WBA rankings.

Nadim Salloum (8-1, 3 KO's), the first pro fighter born and raised in Lebanon, will battle Ahuad Jorge Leandro Capozucco (4-0, 3 KOs) in a six-round super middleweight bout. Salloum, who now lives in Brooklyn, has a large and vocal following among his countrymen in the New York City area.

Orville Crooks (3-0, 2 KO's), one of best amateurs New York has produced in recent years. Crooks, who hails from the Bedford-Stuyvesant area of Brooklyn, is both a U.S. Amateur champion and a National Golden Gloves champion. For him, the sky is truly the limit.

In an eight-round super lightweight bout will be former World Boxing Association Continental Americas Super Lightweight Champion Petros Ananyan (16-3-2, 7 KOs), born and raised in Armenia and now residing in Los Angeles. Petros will battle Brazilian Paulo Cesar Galdino (12-5, 8 KOs).

Sony Hall is located at 235 W 46th Street in Manhattan. Stay in touch by visiting www.boxinginsider.com for more fight updates and streaming information.
