HCB Press Release - 2/13/2007

While Shannon Briggs and Sultan Ibragimov determine boxing’s present when they battle for the WBO Heavyweight Championship on Saturday, March 10, two of boxing’s rising stars, heavyweight Roman Greenberg and junior welterweight Edgar Santana, will represent the future in intriguing undercard bouts at The Theater at Madison Square Garden.

“Roman Greenberg and Edgar Santana are future world champions in their respective divisions,” said Leon Margules, Executive Director of Seminole Warriors Boxing. “Both have the skill, style, and heart to become stars, and fight fans will get to see them in action on March 10, if they are fortunate enough to get a ticket.”

Only 24 years old, Isreali heavyweight contender Roman Greenberg (24-0, 17 KOs) has been impressing more people with each fight, as he makes his way up the rankings. At 6’3’’ and weighing 240 lbs, and with the ability to box or bang in the ring, Greenberg has impressed with his physical tools as well as his maturity in the ring. The IBO Intercontinental heavyweight champion holds wins over tested veterans Kendrick Releford and Julius Francis, and in his last bout he knocked out Steve Pannell in just three rounds. Roman was born in Russia, lived in Austria and moved to Isreal when he was 11. He currently resides in Haifa, Isreal, but also has a residence and trains in England. As a result Greenberg speaks English, Russian, German and Hebrew fluently.

A proud native of Manati, Puerto Rico who now makes his home in New York City’s Spanish Harlem, Edgar ‘El Chamaco’ Santana (20-2, 13 KOs) has built a loyal fan following with his charismatic style and two-fisted attack in the ring. Winner of 15 in a row since 2003, Santana is coming off an impressive third round stoppage of Meacher Major last November.

HBO will televise Briggs vs Ibragimov - which is presented by Seminole Warriors Boxing and Golden Boy Promotions, in association with Golden Grain, Nafta Moskva, Global Advertising Strategies, Gotham Boxing and Madison Square Garden – live beginning at 10pm ET / and on delay at 10pm PT.

To obtain tickets before the fight is soldout, please visit any Ticketmaster Outlet or the Madison Square Garden box office. Tickets for this highly anticipated event are priced at $80, $105, $205, $355, $605 and $1005.
