KEA Boxing Promotions Presents Boxing at the Birchwood Manor

Professional boxing returns to North Jersey tomorrow, May 3, 2018. Andre Kut's KEA Boxing Promotions will bring a seven bout card to the Birchwood Manor in Whippany, New Jersey. For those of you who are unfamiliar with the New Jersey boxing scene, Kut is a 2015 New Jersey Boxing Hall of Fame inductee. This card features four talented, local fighters who look to preserve their undefeated records.

Super middleweights, Darren Goodall (5-0, 4 KOs) and Tahlik Taylor (3-10, 1 KO) will square off in the first six round fight of Goodall's career. The New Milford, New Jersey native has won all but one of his five professional bouts by TKO. Taylor has been knocked out by opponents five times, since turning pro in 2015.

Jersey City's Robert Terry (1-0) is preparing to make the leap from fighting four round bouts to six round bouts in his second professional fight. He will face James Robinson (5-9-4, 1 KO) of York, Pennsylvania in a middleweight contest.

John Bauza (9-0, 5 KOs) will fight Hugo Padilla (5-13, 2 KOs) in a six round, super lightweight contest. The 20-year-old Bauza last fought on March 10th, when he defeated David Morales (13-9, 12 KOs) by unanimous decision at the Claridge Hotel in Atlantic City

Philadelphia's Emmanuel Folly (10-0, 8 KOs) is scheduled to fight Pablo Cupul (9-24, 5 KOs) in a four round, super bantamweight bout. Folly's trip up to North Jersey will mark his first professional fight outside of his home state. Folly looks to win his fifth straight contest by knockout against an opponent who has suffered nine knockouts over the course of his 24 career defeats. 

The card also also features the following bouts:

Ardrick Butler (7-4, 3 KOs) vs. Marcus Beckford (4-8-3, 1 KO) - six rounds, welterweights

Andrew Bentley (3-3) vs. Aurel Love (1-0, 1 KO) - four rounds, super featherweights

Steve Moore (0-3) vs. Laquan Lewis (2-9, 2 KOs) - four rounds, welterweights

Doors for this show are at 7:00 PM, with the first fight at 8:00 PM. Tickets for this card can be purchased on the KEA Boxing Promotions' website.
