Bracero (11-0, 1 KO) is coming off the most impressive performance of his career, a fourth-round stoppage of Raymond Betancourt on Broadway Boxing in July. The 29-year old welterweight from Brooklyn is known for his all action style, only matched in intensity by the spirit his rabid fans base brings to each of his fights.
Tucker (14-0, 7 KOs), 22, is a local hero in his home state, Maryland, where he has regularly fought in front of sellout crowds at the Shipley Arena in Westminster. In his last action, he traveled across the country to Oakland where he decisioned Billy Bailey to capture the NABO Youth title. Currently, Tucker sits at #9 in the WBO light heavyweight rankings.
Hamer (11-1, 8 KOs), 27, of New York, NY, was considered the hottest young American heavyweight going until he lost a controversial split decision to undefeated giant Kelvin Price of Pensacola, FL in May. However, the former national Golden Gloves champion is ready to begin a new ascent to the top of the heavyweight division. With five first round knockouts on his ledger, there are sure to be fireworks when the aggressive and action-oriented Hamer steps into the ring.
Lamonakis (1-0, 1 KO), 35, of New York, NY, is a school teacher by day, and by night a fighter who uses the ring as a classroom for her opponents. Lamonakis made a stirring pro debut in June on Broadway Boxing, knocking out Kasondra Hardnette in two rounds.
Martinez (5-0, 5 KOs), 20, of Bronx, NY is one of the latest additions to the DiBella Entertainment stable. Managed by the famed New York Giants running back, Brandon Jacobs, the young junior middleweight is surrounding himself with people who know what it takes to be a champion. Martinez will look to keep his perfect knockout percentage intact in his Broadway Boxing debut.
Thomas (7-0, 4 KOs), 21, of Detroit, MI, has been groomed for success from a young age when, as an amateur, Emmanuel Steward deemed him a future world champion. Although not still coached by the famed Steward, Thomas has had nothing but success in the pros.
In 2009, after stating his career 3-0, Thomas signed with DiBella Entertainment.
Bujaj (1-0, 1 KO), 20, of New York, NY, will be making his second Broadway Boxing appearance in as many professional fights. In his pro debut he scored a second round knockout over Calvin Rooks in front of a loud and passionate fan base.
Monaghan (2-0, 2 KOs), 28 , of Long Beach, NY, scored two first round knockouts in his first two pro outings. Gaining popularity with each pro outing, Monaghan makes his Broadway Boxing debut on October 6.
