Andre Kut’s KEA Boxing Promotions will feature Juan “The Beast” Rodriguez, Jr., 9-0 (4), of Union City, NJ, at Mt. Airy Casino & Resort in Mt. Pocono, Pennsylvania in the main event in a rematch with dangerous Dontre King, 6-11-2 (2), of Cambridge, MD, in a 6 round light welterweight match. Diana Rodriguez will serve as matchmaker.

In February of 2010 Rodriguez took a 4 round decision over King. Later that year King drew with Juan Rodriguez, then 4-0. Not the same Rodriguez. King has certainly been in with the tougher opposition which is typical in boxing when you have a losing record. King has a 4-3 record in his last 7 fights. The overall record of his opponents is 43-8-2 plus 3 making their debut. Of these opponents 10 were unbeaten at the time. He defeated Julio Dejesus, 5-2-1, last November in Atlantic City, NJ. While opponents of Rodriguez overall are 14-32-5 with 1 making his debut, and none with a winning record. Other words, throw out the records. This should be a war!

The co-feature will be Tyrone Luckey, 4-2-1 (4), of Middletown, NJ, opposing late replacement Bryan Acaba, 3-0 (2), of Puerto Rico, now out of Brooklyn, NY. He is replacing Philadelphia prospect Angel Ocasio, 6-0-2 (1), reported to have come down with the flu. This is scheduled for 6 rounds in the lightweight division.

Heavyweight prospect Joe Cusumano, 4-1 (4), out of Virginia Beach, VA, has been training in Phoenixville, PA, for this bout against Taffo Asongwed, 3-11-7 (1), out of Montreal, Quebec, CAN. Those 7 draws were all with unbeaten opponents. In his last bout in June he scored a 4th round stoppage. All of Cusumano’s bouts have been in different states. He is under the guidance of the legendary Don Elbaum. The only loss on Cusumano’s record was a disputed hometown decision. This is scheduled for 4 rounds.

David “The Riot” Curiel, 3-0 (1), out of Paterson, NJ, takes on Emmanuel Medina, 2-1 (2), out of Qunicy, MA, in a 4 round light middleweight match. Robert Sockwell, 3-2-1 (3), of East Scranton, takes on Philadelphia’s Tyrell Boggs, 0-4, in a 4 round light middleweight match. In a 4 round female super featherweight match Liz Sherman, 3-2 (1), battles Tina Leadbetter, 2-4 (0), both out of Philadelphia. First bout at 7:30pm.
