Under the bright lights of Times Square, 2008 Puerto Rican
Olympian Jose Pedraza won for the second time in as many pro
Pedraza dismantled Corben Page in just one round on Tuesday
night in the main event of DiBella Entertainment's Broadway
Boxing series from the BB King Blues Club in Times Square.
Pedraza dropped Page to his knees with a straight right just
moments into the contest. The hard-nosed Page, fighting out
of Springfield, Oregon, rose to his feet and fought gamely,
but hit the deck again just moments later as Pedraza landed
a picture perfect jab. Although Page rose again, Pedraza
proceeded to chase him around the ring until referee Joe
Cusano waved off the contest at just 2:25 of the first
"I felt quick tonight, I had the power," said Pedraza. "I
can't wait to come back to fight in New York again."
Pedraza, a member of DiBella Entertainment, Gary Shaw
Productions, and Universal Promotion's Team Puerto Rico,
plans to return to New York in June to fight during Puerto
Rican Day Parade weekend.
