4/20 “The New” Ray Robinson (8-0, 3KO’s), one of Star Boxing’s youngest and hottest prospects, is set to go to battle against New Jersey tough guy Eberto Medina (5-3, 1KO) in a six round welterweight contest. Robinson has been impressive each time out and seemingly gets better from each fight to the next.

Star Boxing CEO Joe DeGuardia is looking forward to showcasing his welterweight prospect once again. “The first time I saw Ray fight I knew he was something special. He throws some of the most beautiful combinations I have ever seen. His hand speed is incredible and after watching this kid fight, it’s easy to forget that he is only 22 years old,” said DeGuardia. “We honestly feel that Ray has all the skills and potential to be an absolute star in the exciting and competitive welterweight division.”
muhammad Also scheduled to appear on the card is Atlantic City’s own, former amateur standout, Qa’id “Kid Dynamite” Muhammad (2- 0, 2KO’s). The 19 year old Muhammad was last seen in May on the undercard of another Mike Arnaoutis fight, where he stopped Arthur Parker in the second round of their scheduled 4 round bantamweight contest.

Local fan favorite Terrell “Baby Bull” Nelson (8- 5, 5KO’s) of Plainfield, NJ, who has not fought in New Jersey in over ten years, finally returns home when he takes on Bernard Brown (5-4-2, 3KO’s). The once promising Nelson was the victim of a drive by shooting earlier this year. Nelson has since recovered and now has his sites set on trying to get his boxing career back on path. The Nelson vs. Brown fight will be in the heavyweight division and is scheduled for six rounds.
