PITTSBURGH – Professional boxing returns this Saturday night (May 7) to the Pittsburgh market as Gionta Management presents, “Murrysville Madness II,” at the Murrysville SportZone in Murrysville, Pennsylvania.
Undefeated Pittsburgh super middleweight prospect Eric Lomax (4-0, 3 KOs) is matched in the 4-round main event against unbeaten Joseph Aguilar (1-0-1, 1 KO), of Portland, Oregon.
The 31-year-old Lomax is a throwback fighter who entertains fans and pressures his opponent with power in both hands, while Aguilar represents a step up in terms of a quality opponent for Lomax. Aguilar is coming off a 4-round draw this past February against an undefeated opponent, 5-0 Edel Gomez.
The 6-round co-feature has all the makings of a real barnburner. Danny “Feel Good Hollywood” Rosenberger (8-9, 2 KOs), fighting out of Youngstown, Ohio, will take on Maryland middleweight Jonathan Ryan Burrs (4-4, 1 KO). Both bring the heat and rarely take a step backwards.
Pittsburgh super middleweight Mary Casamassa, the 2018 PA Golden Glove champ, makes her long anticipated pro debut in a 4-round match versus super middleweight Jozette Cotton (0-1-1), of Omaha, Nebraska.
“We’re happy to be returning to Murrysville SportZone for our second show there,” promoter Derek Gionta said. “They are great to work with. Lomax is always in exciting fights and Aguilar will be Eric’s toughest test to date. Burrs vs Rosenberger is going to be a really good fight, too. I’m excited for Mary Casamassa’s pro debut on our show. I’ve known her since her amateur days. I did some matchmaking for her over the years for Golden Glove events and other shows. We recently signed a deal with her and look forward to the future”
Other fights scheduled on the undercard begin with Illinois cruiserweight Anthony Hollaway (4-2-2, 3 KOs) vs. New York’s Eric “Cautious” Abraham (7-13, 3 KOs) in a 6-rounder, and Pittsburgh lightweight “Maverick” Mike Conway (4-2-1, 2 KOs) vs. Brazil’s Marcello Williams (2-12) in a 6-round match.
