World rated super bantamweight Leon Moore & prospect DonYil Livingston win in Big Apple

PhilBoxing.com


NEW YORK (April 4, 2011) ? A pair of Boxing 360 fighters, World Boxing Council No. 3 rated super bantamweight Leon ?Hurry Up? Moore and promising middleweight prospect DonYil Livingston, both registered unanimous six-round decision victories last Saturday evening in Brooklyn.

The 31-year-old southpaw Moore (28-2, 22 KOs), from Guyana, is the reigning PABA and WBC CABOFE super bantamweight champion, as well as the former NABA, Guyanese and CABOFE bantamweight titlist. In his United States debut, He defeated Moore outclassed veteran Felipe Almanza (18-23-4, 9 KOs).

?We were excited to introduce Leon Moore to U.S. boxing fans,? Boxing 360 CEO and Founder Mario Yagobi commented. ?He?s a world-rated super bantamweight contender. Our goal is to better position him for a world title fight this year against (WBC super bantamweight champion Toshiaki) Nishioka or any of the other world champions.?

Moore captured the WBC CABOFE and NABA bantamweight belts in September 2009, when he won a unanimous 12-round decision against former 2-time world champion Maurico Pastrana. Last January, Leon won a unanimous 12-round decision versus Indonesia Boxing Association champion Marangin Marbun for the vacant PABA crown. In his last fight (Nov. 16), Moore won a 10-round decision against Breilor Teran in Guyana.

Livingston (3-0), the most recent addition to the growing Boxing 360 stable, won a six-round decision against rugged Greg Hackett (2-7). ?We?re very high on DonYil who was a highly decorated amateur boxer,? Yagobi noted. ?This was his first fight on the East Coast. He has good bloodlines, his cousin is Andre Ward.?

Livingston, 26, fights out of Palmdale, California. He had a solid 178-23 (83 KOs) amateur record, including gold medal performances in the National Silver Gloves (1996, 1998 and 2000), National Junior Golden Gloves (1995-2000), 2000 National & International Junior Olympic s, 2001 National Under-19 Tournament, and 2004 Ringside World Championships.

?Most importantly,? Boxing 360 director of boxing Bob Duffy remarked, ?Leon and DonYil both won their New York City debuts. Leon was in total control of his fight and DonYil got in much needed work against a tough opponent.?

Other members of Boxing 360?s stable include USBA heavyweight champion Maurice ?Sugar Moe? Harris, former IBF super middleweight champion Alejandro ?Naco? Berrio, NY State super middleweight title-holder Lennox ?2 Sharpe? Allen, KO king Tyrone Brunson, Nick ?Hands of Gold? Casal, Amanda ?The Real Deal? Serrano, Mike Mollo, Joshua ?The Juice? Harris, Emad Ali, Angel ?Toro? Hernandez and ?King? David Estrada.
