Olympian Charles Conwell Returns May 18th Broadway Boxing

*New York, NY (5/9/17)* – Charles Conwell, a 2016 United States Olympian,
will fight as a professional for the second time on May 18 as part of the
special One-Night-Only return of DiBella Entertainment’s* Broadway Boxing* to
New York from the Paramount Theater on the campus of LIU-Brooklyn.

Conwell (1-0, 1 KO) will take on Daniel Szoros (2-1, 2 KOs), of Hungary, in
the co-feature. In the main event, local favorite Heather “The Heat” Hardy
(19-0, 4 KOs) fights Hungary’s Edina Kiss (14-3, 8 KOs) in a rematch of
their March 4 battle.

Fans can receive a 10% discount on tickets now through May 12 or until
supplies last by visiting dbe1.com and using promo code USA at checkout.

It is a quick turnaround for Conwell, 19, who knocked out Jeremiah Page
(3-4, 2 KOs) in 41 seconds in his professional debut on April 21, at
Buffalo Run Resort and Casino in Miami, Oklahoma. Conwell is co-promoted by
Tony Holden’s Holden Productions and managed by David McWater’s Split-T
Management.

“I am so excited to fight in New York City,” said Conwell. “I will always
represent Cleveland and I love the fans in Oklahoma, but New York is a city
where stars are born. New York will become a second home for me on way to a
world championship.”

“Charles Cowell will be one of the most active prospects in boxing. Tony
Holden and I have plans to fight Charles all over this country, but I can’t
wait to watch him make a splash in New York on* Broadway Boxing*,” said Lou
DiBella, President of DiBella Entertainment. “This is a United States
Olympian and I hope the local fans and boxing media respond accordingly.”

*Broadway Boxing* returns to New York for the first time since June 2016,
on a One-Night-Only basis due to the insurance requirements imposed on
boxing promoters by the New York legislature in August of last year.

“The insurance requirements in New York have kept DiBella Entertainment’s
flagship series and almost all club shows out of New York for the past year
because they just aren’t financially viable,” said DiBella. “But the public
clamoring has been too great to ignore; we are going to plant our flag for
one night and we hope boxing fans come out and support live boxing
featuring homegrown and world class talent.”
