JOSELITO COLLADO READY FOR BIGGEST FIGHT OF HIS CAREER
September 8 – Prudential Center, Newark, NJ
NEWARK, NJ – Jamaica, Queens junior lightweight boxer Joselito Collado, 13-1, 3 KOs, fights the biggest bout of his career when he faces undefeated TexanJerry Belmontes, 16-0, 5 KOs, at the Prudential Center in Newark, NJ, on September 8th. The 8-round contest is the key preliminary bout on a big card promoted by Main Events, with a heavyweight triple header in the spotlight.
Former two-time world champion Tomasz “Goral” Adamek, 46-2, 28 KOs, meets Travis “Freight Train” Walker, 39-7-1, 31 KOs, in the 12-round main event, but it is the Collado-Belmontes bout that might just be the most competitive match of the show. Both fighters are considered hot boxing prospects with promising futures, so their anticipated clash is expected to determine which of them is ready to step up to the next level.
“I think he’s a good fighter,” Collado said. “Good amateur fighter. But honestly, I don’t think as a professional, he fought anybody as hard as me. So I think I’m going to give him a hell of a fight.”
Belmontes, the “Corpus Christi Kid“, was an amateur superstar in Texas, but this, his 17th bout, will be his first trip east for a pro fight.
“He’s coming all the way to New Jersey, and he’s fighting a good fighter like me,” Collado said of his opponent. “He might be a little intimidated. Hopefully that can be to my advantage.”
Collado looks forward to the challenge, knowing that Belmontes represents his toughest test of his six year career.
“I take my hat off to him,” Collado said. “I know that he’s more of a boxer than a fighter. So I’m looking to cut the ring and work him. I’m going to keep the jab on him, sit back, and see what he’s got. I always change my style. I can’t say I’m a better brawler, of a better boxer, because it depends who you’re fighting. Sometimes I box, sometimes I have to slug it out. I won’t know until I’m in the ring with him.”
They say that styles makes fights, and the style match between Collado and Belmontes looks like an intriguing one. Neither are considered hard punchers, but Collado brings a much more aggressive style, while Belmontes has the technical skills that could diffuse Collado’s pressure tactics as well as the home field advantage.
“I don’t want to underestimate him,” Collado said. “For this fight, I’m going in with a “Plan A” and a “Plan B”. I gotta say, that he better come in with his “A Game”, because if he doesn’t, he’s going to get put out. I’m training like an animal in the gym.”
Prudential Center doors will open at 1:30PM, first fight is 2:00PM.

Preventing and treating overweight and obesity in children & youth must be done through increased physical activity.
Activities should be fun and attractive and the practice of the Martial Arts offers a solution in the fight against obesity.
Martial arts are known to improve social skills, discipline, and respect in children. Children can also improve their abilities to concentrate and focus on activities, as well as bettering their motor skills and self-confidence. Martial arts can be fun and beneficial at any age.
The Ying Yang Kickboxing Club which is located on the small island of Malta was founded by Master Noel Mercieca in 1996. Master Mercieca is a 5th Dan in Kickboxing, 1st Dan in Tang Soo Doo, Brown Belt in Spirit Combat, European Champion and a runner up World Title. He is also a qualified gym instructor, a Military fitness Instructor and a sports masseur.
Master Mercieca understands the need to have a healthy balance between study time and sport and for this purpose, the Ying Yang Kickboxing and Martial Arts Club, has designed programs for youth and children. As with any good sport school, Noel lists safety as the first priority of the children and youth classes. After all, martial arts training is meant to improve the child and youth in all aspects of life. Avoiding injury is a priority.
“At Ying Yang, we are like an extended family. We truly enjoy each other’s company; amongst our younger members we already have second generation students. Maybe that’s the secret of why the club has grown so large over the past 15 years” said Master Noel Mercieca.
The martial arts were originally established as structured systems of combat training. Today, they are also studied for their value in self-defence, and enjoyed as modes of sport and physical development.
Ying Yang Club Structure and Equipment – The club distinguishes its members, according to their age and training experience, with traditional Martial Arts Belts (from White to Black) which are gained throughout certified grading sessions that take place over specific periods of months and training.
The gym is composed of locker rooms (including showers) for each separate gender and is also equipped with training equipment. The floor is covered with protective mats to absorb falling impact. Instructors are trained in first aid and first aid kits & other safety equipment is installed and ready in case of emergencies.
During the third round of his fearless, bloody campaign against Robert Helenius in Erfurt, Germany this past August, Sergei “White Wolf” Liakhovich suffered fractures of the bones located high on the bridge of both the right and left sides of his nose. His courageous battle through the remaining brutal rounds garnered him a multitude of new fans who having been sending emails praising Sergei’s heart, determination and skills.
Kathy Duva, Main Events CEO, was impressed, “Despite the fact that Sergei was bleeding profusely from two fractures of his nose and swallowing blood from the third round on, Sergei kept himself in the fight and put on one of the gutsiest performances that I have seen in a boxing ring in a very long time. In my opinion, had he not been gasping for breath throughout the fight due to his fractures, Sergei would have won the bout. Even with his injuries, he appeared to be getting the best of Helenius during many of the rounds. Had Sergei not been injured, I have no doubt that we would have seen a very different result.”
After a relatively short recovery period, Sergei is anxious to get back on track to a world title, “I am back in training. I feel great. I’m working on my overall physical and strength conditioning right now, in fact I just came back from hiking. I will be back in the boxing Gym this coming week.”
Sergei spoke of his war with Helenius,”I believe that challenges make you stronger, that you always need to learn from your experiences and make the necessary adjustments. In my case, one of the things I need to do first is to change my corner situation. I have the great support of my Promoter Kathy Duva and my attorney and advisor Tony Cardinale. I also would like to say thank you to everyone, to all my fans for your good comments and great support.”
“Right now my focus is on getting back in the ring as soon as possible. I need to fight regularly and to stay active. I want to fight good fighters and I will do whatever it takes to get back to the top.”
