Jersey City Fight Night At
White Eagle Hall Set For March 4
On Saturday, March 4th, Joe DeGuardia’s Star Boxing begins
its 2023 journey with the first professional boxing card at
White Eagle Hall in Jersey City, New Jersey.
White Eagle Hall is a venue in the restored historic
building in the quaint neighborhood of Downtown Jersey City,
a vintage village. Originally built in 1910 as a community
center, in 2013 it underwent a comprehensive
multi-million-dollar historic restoration and reopened in
April of 2017. The intimate venue, adorned with two unique
stained-glass skylights and gothic era design with wood and
fixtures taken from the nearby Saint Boniface Church, will
be filled with boxing aficionados and notable guests
mingling as part of a unique boxing experience.
Star Boxing CEO JOE DEGUARDIA had this to say, “We are
excited to bring professional boxing to White Eagle Hall in
Jersey City for the first time. We plan on having not just
quality boxing, but an experience. It is an intimate and
unique setting, and we are thrilled to be working with
Harris Blitzer Sports and Entertainment (HBSE) and expect
our joint venture will bring an experience to Jersey City
that fans will find unforgettable.”
The unique fight night experience is slated to have a
thrilling fight card with serious talent. Recently, Star
Boxing announced the signing of undefeated super
bantamweight prospect RAJON “PICASSO” CHANCE (7-0-1 5KO’s).
Chance will be making his Star Boxing debut in his native
New Jersey on March 4th, at White Eagle Hall. Chance was a
standout amateur with a record of 135-15 winning three
national championships, the first at the age of 11. Turning
pro in 2020, the now 22-year-old undefeated professional ABF
Champion, is a prospect on the rise who is looking to make a
statement in the 122 lb. division – starting on March 4th.
Marching his way into the St. Patrick’s holiday, undefeated
super lightweight, 2021 Irish Prospect of the Year “THE
SILENT ASSASSIN” RYAN O’ROURKE (Dublin, Ireland 9-0 2KO’s)
will make the trip across the Atlantic Ocean to kickstart
his 2023. At just 23 years old, O’Rourke is growing into his
lengthy frame, evidenced by his first-round demolition of
Andreas Maier at Star Boxing’s Shore Wars in November.
O’Rourke will fight in an 8-round super lightweight bout.
Undefeated super welterweight rising prospect, JAHYAE
“GOLDEN CHILD” BROWN (Schenectady, NY, 12-0 9KO’s) will look
to parlay two wins in 2022 into a thrilling first fight in
2023. Brown is an exciting young fighter with a high boxing
IQ. 2023 is lined up to be a major year for the Schenectady
product with major leap in the world ratings in his sights.
Brown will be featured in an 8-round super welterweight
“HBSE is excited to partner with Joe DeGuardia and Star
Boxing to bring live professional boxing to White Eagle Hall
