*New York, NY (10/19/18)* – Over the eight-day stretch beginning on October
20 and ending October 27, eight *DiBella Entertainment* *(DBE)* boxers will
participate in seven different world title clashes. The bouts will feature
belts from all four major sanctioning organizations (IBF, WBA, WBC, WBO)
and will take place across three different events and be telecast on two
different networks.

The championship clashes begin this Saturday, October 20, at TD Garden in
Boston, Massachusetts, when DBE’s *Tevin “The American Idol” Farmer* (26-4-1,
5 KOs) defends his IBF junior lightweight championship versus #6-rated
James Tennyson (22-2, 18 KOs).

Farmer vs. Tennyson will serve as a showcase bout on the DAZN telecast
featuring Demetrius Andrade vs. Walter Kautondokwa for the WBO middleweight

In the DAZN co-feature in Boston, DBE’s *Cindy Serrano *(27-5-3, 10 KOs)
will try to wrangle the unified WBA and IBF lightweight championships from
Katie Taylor (10-0, 5 KOs). Serrano, the former WBO featherweight champion,
is moving up two weight classes for this bout.

Both Farmer vs. Tennyson and Taylor vs. Serrano are being co-promoted with
Matchroom Boxing USA.

“Both Tevin Farmer and Cindy Serrano are examples of the power of
perseverance,” said *Lou DiBella*, President of *DiBella Entertainment*.
“They suffered a combined nine losses before winning their first world
championship. Now, they can leave the TD Garden with a combined three world
titles on Saturday night.”

One week later, on October 27, DiBella Entertainment will promote
*five* different
world championship bouts over two shows.

*Sergiy “The Technician” Derevyanchenko *(12-0, 10 KOs), co-promoted by DBE
and Fight Promotions Inc., will get his long awaited crack at the IBF
middleweight title when he takes on former champion Danny Jacobs (34-2, 29
KOs) for the vacant championship in the main event of HBO World
Championship Boxing, from the Hulu Theater at Madison Square Garden in New
York City.

The HBO televised co-feature will showcase DBE’s *Yuandale “Money Shot”
Evans*(20-1, 14 KOs) challenging Alberto Machado (20-0, 16 KOs) for the WBA
junior lightweight championship. The Machado vs. Evans bout will be
co-promoted by Golden Boy Promotions.

In the opening bout on HBO, *Heather “The Heat” Hardy* (21-0, 4 KOs)
and *Shelly
“Shelito’s Way” Vincent* (23-1, 1 KO), both fighting under the DBE banner,
will square off in a rematch of the 2016 Ring Magazine Women’s Fight of the
Year (which Hardy won by Majority Decision). This time, the stakes will be
even higher with the vacant WBO featherweight championship on the line.

Thirteen hundred miles away from MSG, in New Orleans, Louisiana, at the UNO
Lakefront Arena, the DiBella Entertainment stable will look to take a
stranglehold on the junior welterweight division in the first round of
Season 2 of the World Boxing Super Series, which will be streamed on DAZN.

*Regis “Rougarou” Prograis* (22-0, 19 KOs), the #1 rated junior
welterweight in the world by Ring Magazine and ESPN.com, will defend the
WBC Diamond Championship versus former lightweight champion Terry Flanagan
(33-1, 13 KOs).

In the co-feature from New Orleans, *Ivan “The Beast” Baranchyk* (18-0, 11
KOs), co-promoted by Fight Promotions Inc., vies for the vacant IBF junior
welterweight championship versus fellow unbeaten contender Anthony Yigit
(21-0-1, 7 KOs).

“October 27 will be one of the banner days in the 18-year history of
DiBella Entertainment,” said DiBella. “Every championship bout on US
television that night will feature at least one DBE fighter. From New York
to New Orleans, the strength and championship ability of DBE’s stable will
be on display.”
